Engagement Photography in Philadelphia: Carrie + Matt

Engagement

Like so many couples, Carrie and Matt were set up by some mutual friends. Great intuition on the part of the friends because they hit it off and flourished in a relationship that became long distance just 5 months after meeting. The way they act together, it’s like they were made for one another.

Both have family in California, where they will be married this October. Matt proposed at the San Francisco restaurant where they had their first date (the adorable L’Osteria in North Beach).

They chose Philadelphia for their engagement pictures. They’ve made a home here while Matt was in law school (and Carrie was still travelling all over the place). They’re total foodies and are currently going through Philly Mag’s 50 Best Restaurants list. We started our time at Reading Terminal Market (notice I say at and not in since the place closes at 6pm).

I took them on the scenic route on this particularly muggy June evening. Next stop was Broad Street for the classic oh-so-Philly City Hall shot.

Onwards for more pictures around Love Park where droves of people were gathered around the fountain for some cooling off. Carrie and Matt took the heat like champs.

I absolutely adore the engagement pictures we got right outside of Philadelphia City Hall.

The two were just cracking up the entire time!

And I not so secretly lusted after Carrie’s bright green slingbacks.

As it was Memorial Day Weekend and we were part of the mere handful not down the shore, we had the Philly streets to ourselves.

Carrie and Matt, thanks so much for not melting! You two were incredible!

I was over the moon when I got booked to shoot Jackie and Chang’s wedding next November.
