Philadelphia engagement photographer | Old City | Allison + Craig

Engagement

Allison and Craig got together after many, many months of playing Quizzo on opposing teams at a local bar.  Craig’s team was better but that’s neither here nor there.

What matters is that one night their Quizzo host invited them out to a concert, they both went, and things haven’t quite been the same since.  We walked around their neighborhood in Philly’s gorgeous Old City for their engagement session.

Allison works long hours at the hospital and Craig can walk to work from their home in Old City.  When they’re not planning a wedding within 6 months, they roadtrip, tailgate, watch football, and take care of a particular little furball.

Zelda is a 4 year old miniature Schnauzer who was originally named Muffintop (ouch).  She is more energetic that you can imagine and is frequently guilty of walk-by lickings.  (No, seriously, they hold Zelda to the side whenever someone passed by so that the unsuspecting victim doesn’t end up with a wet ankle.)

We got some great porch access at their classically Philadelphia brick home.

In the Poconos, there is a waterfall a small hike from the road.  They had visited it a few times and it was there in May that Craig popped the question.

I will be seeing them very soon for their wedding next month at Valley Green Inn.  I can’t wait!

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Spruce Street Harbor Park | Monica + Evan
In the flurry of getting the new website up (you love it?  So nice of you to say so!) there was a Society Hall engagement session that you never saw.  It’s honestly quite tragic since it was so magically perfect.  The weather, light, colors, location, and, oh right, THE COUPLE could not have been better!  As a belated treat, I give you Monica and Evan!  (Please hold your applause til the end.) We wandered around some great streets in Society Hill and Old City and ended playfully at the Spruce Street Harbor Park. These two have been together for 6 years.  They met at UCLA through a tutoring program where they were both mentors.  ...
