Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | West Fairmount Park | Candace + Scott

Engagement

I feel like I got quite the treat the other week when Candace showed up in something other than sweatpants to her engagement session with Scott in West Fairmount Park. From what I’m told, she practically lives in them. Rightfully so. Their schedules are sooo busy – her with dental school and him with doctor’s hours. Nights involve coming home, getting take out, watching Law & Order, and falling asleep on the sofa together.

I was so glad that they were able to make time to come to Philly from Boston for our session. It was a bit chilly but they both looked absolutely fantastic and the park was incredibly lush and all ours!

They’re pretty hilarious together. Apparently impromptu dance parties are somewhat common.

Scott proposed to Candace on a hike along the ocean in Rhode Island. He had been picking on her for walking like a grandmother. He popped the question and she never saw it coming.

They’ll be back in town this September for what is sure to be a gorgeous wedding at the Radisson Warwick Hotel in Philadelphia. (I’m kinda hoping Candace changes into sweats for the reception so they can get their dance on!)

Philadelphia Area Engagement Photographer | Valley Forge National Park | Marisa + RJ
It isn’t every day that I head out for an engagement session hours after receiving an inquiry from a couple.  I was happy to meet up with Marisa and RJ on a stunning fall afternoon at the place that holds so much importance to them: Valley Forge National Park. To have some understanding of why this place is so special, we need to go back about 10 years when they first met while working on a project together at work.  Marisa job has her traveling all over the world at a constant pace so it wasn’t until 3 years later when she found herself back in the Philly area and contacted RJ just to catch up over dinner. It grew from there across ...
