Emily + Chris' e-session ⋆ Lindsay Docherty Photography

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 | Allison + Craig
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 ...

I have been falling in love with Cait and Bob for a while now. Every interaction has been so lovely. They are the kind of people you look forward to seeing and I’m bummed that I don’t have a good reason to run into them again before their wedding at the Bellevue next year.Before I get too depressed thinking about that, let me share their engagement photography session in lush Wissahickon Valley Park (part of the Fairmount Park system). We started our adventures by Valley Green Inn.I am really into their meeting/first date story. They met through a… um, mutual friend and were set up on a blind date. The plan was Bahama Breeze for dinner f ...
