Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Art Museum area | Moira + Brett
Moira and Brett are the kind of couple that make my job so incredibly easy. Their smiles and laughter were just effortless. They were such a dream and I can’t believe I have to wait another year for their wedding at Holly Hedge Estate.
Moira and Brett were set up through a mutual friend. They had actually met each other previously though it was pretty brief and we don’t really talk about that… They now live in Conshohocken with a high maintenance cat who is allergic to everything but we planned their engagement session around the places they lived in the beginning of their courtship – near the Philadelphia Art Museum.
We wandered along the picturesque streets towards the apartments Moira lived in and eventually lived with Brett. I absolutely love it when we photograph around places with such personal significance.
We meandered around Fairmont Ave near Eastern State Penitentiary and made use of its fantastic stone walls and a local school. The colors and textures were simply magic!
Brett popped the question at the Ritz Carlton’s XIX restaurant. She was completely surprised since it was around the same time as her graduation from grad school so it was sold as some celebratory drinks in the city. Brett wanted to be out on the balcony but that June day was just too hot. As it was, they had the place all to themselves because it was the very beginning of happy hour. It was perfect. Afterwards, he took her to dinner at Bridget Foy’s, where they had had their first date.
Moira, many thanks to your sister for doing all the work in hooking us up! I absolutely can’t wait to see you two again next September.
The more I give to thee, the more I have, for both are infinite.
