Jessi + Josh: Engagement Session in Love Park

Engagement

Jessi and Josh came up from Newark, DE last Friday for an engagement session over at Love Park in Philadelphia. It’s almost sacrilege that I’d never been there before. We were all surprised by how small the LOVE statue actually is.


They were an adorable couple and Love Park really seemed to fit. It was cute and urban to match Jessi and Josh’s fun, hipster style.



Not only were they sweet as can be, but Jessi had these stunning turquoise eyes and Josh had a pair of big brown beauties.




We got off to a late start due to traffic and had planned to check out another site, but we ended up just playing around the little square once the sun set. It actually made for a great nighttime cityscape.


They changed into something a bit more formal and really played up the ‘out on the town’ feel. I loved it! I mean, really, how cute is Jessi!?






Josh is in a band so I asked them to rock out for me for a few pics…


Just a fun, really easy-going couple. You guys were fantastic! Congratulations!


Anyone can be passionate, but it takes real lovers to be silly. ~Rose Franken

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | West Fairmount Park | Meredith + Dwayne

It was chilly but we made it work at the desolate West Fairmont Park by the Horticulture Center.I’m so impressed by their relationship. She works 60 hours a week as a pr ...

Engagement Photography at Morris Arboretum in Philadelphia: Jessica + Camren
Remember Matt and Julia? Well this isn’t them. This is Jessica and Camren – Cam was one of Matt’s groomsmen. They all knew each other from college at the University of Delaware where Jessica and Camren first met. Both were rugby players and hung out in the same social circles as “buddies” before finally making things legit about three years ago.They’re totally laid back and comfortable. They complement each other so well – for one thing, she’s always hot and he’s always cold. We met up at Morris Arboretum for their engagement session and had a great time (despite the bee stings). The light was glorious.They were cracking each other (an ...
