Emily + Chris’ e-session

Engagement

Emily and Chris are awesome. As I wrote before in the teaser post, these two are 100% goofy, 100% fun, and 100% in love. You’d better believe 300% means awesome.

They live in the outskirts of DC and came up to spend time with friends and family and to have a fun romp around the Philadelphia Museum of Art for engagement pictures.

When you’re around the Art Museum, where is the first place to photograph? The steps, of course!




And on a hot summer day there was no resisting the fountain just screaming for them to come in and play.


I LOVE how Emily just nuzzles up into Chris. Totally smitten.


Emily and Chris love the water. Chris proposed to Emily at a bayfront restaurant in front of all of their friends (she consequently tackled him with a “yes!” and he made her take the ring for fear that his shaking hands would drop it into the water). So it was important that we have a little agua in the background of some of the pictures. Philly’s got the Schuylkill.

We moseyed around the Water Works restaurant and gazebos.



So they might not be classically trained ballerinas, but they’ve got moves.


We walked around to Boathouse Row as well and made friends (enemies?) with the geese.


We frolicked around in the Azalea Garden on Kelly Drive. Don’t let Chris’ tough Navy exterior fool you for one second – this guy can frolic and goof off with the best of them. Something tells me Emily brings it out of him.



We ended our session basking in gorgeous light and clover.


Emily and Chris, I hope you had as much fun as I did! Can’t wait to hear more about your Tarrytown, NY weddings plans for next year!

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Old City + Fairmount | Anna + Andrew
I would write a full blog post about this couple if I knew Anna weren’t on the edge of her seat and probably overloading her internet at work by refreshing the browser on Lindsay Docherty Photography.If I had more time you’d learn things about Anna and Andrew like how they met in high school (my alma mater, Lower Merion). You’d learn that they were friends for years before they were both single and she invited him to a formal at her college and he drove 6 hours in a blizzard to be there for her.But there’s just no time for that. Here are some pictures from their amaaaaaazing extended engagement session that started at Elfreth’s Alley in Old ...
