Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Old City | Marisa + Tim
Tim and Marisa make me smile. They came up from Washington DC for their engagement session around Old City in Philly. Tim is from Bucks County and Philly holds a special place in his heart, especially this historic area around Headhouse Square and Rittenhouse with its gorgeous old rowhomes and cobblestone streets.
They say that they weren’t sappy people before they met. That’s pretty incredible because they were both utterly squeezable.
Could this be any more Philly? (Okay, maybe if they were munching on some soft pretzels and cheesesteaks.)
Tim was worried that a November session might not yield enough fall colors. Psh!
We had a certain little voyeur with us in Rittenhouse Square.
Looove this one! It was chilly and windy but these two were troopers!
Their story is hilarious to me. They met at work while they were both interns. Keeping things totally professional they hung out a few times on non-dates, initially sparked by their mutual interest in ice hockey. These “non-dates” started adding up though (ice skating, wine tasting, hockey games…), both pretty oblivious to what was going on. One day he asked her to watch a game at his house and told her that he was into her, expecting her to be taken aback. She told him that she felt the same and thus started their official dating lives. Finally!
This September they returned to a wine bar they had visited many times before. She had gotten a new job the week before and it was time to celebrate. With a ring. Tim had to strangely request that Marisa get out of the booth so that he could properly get down on one knee to pop the question.
Caps vs. Flyers. Somehow they make it work.
Congratulations on both of you getting a clue! I’m so happy that I got to be a part of it!
Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.
