Julie + Jorge: engagement session around the Philadelphia Art Museum

Engagement

Some people luck out with good looks, a love of their lives, perfect light for their engagement session, and a fantastic photographer. Now allow me to introduce you to Julie and Jorge. (In case there was any question, Julie and Jorge meet all of the preceding qualifications.) Julie’s eyes are some of the blueist I’ve ever seen. They’re just incredible.

These two met at a bank in Boston, where Julie was working. After a few tries, Julie relented and agreed to go out with Jorge. She never imagined that she would be salsa dancing with this smooth Venezuelan a few dates later. Several years later, Jorge proposed to Julie in front of that very bank. They’ll be married in Boston next July (not at the bank). They call Philly home now, which was why it was important to use one of the most quintessential Philly spots for their engagement session – the Philadelphia Art Museum right outside of their front door.

We started at the azalea garden. It was a bit warm but get a load of this light!

And this was all before we voyaged to the front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

We wrapped it up on the way back to their place, stopping for a smooch or two along the way for good measure.

They love this freshly gilded Joan of Arc statue just outside their building. (Those still stuck on what to get them as an engagement present – find them a little replica and thank me later!)

It was such a great evening. Thank you both so much and special shout out to Bev and Chuck for referring them!

When love has fused and mingled two beings in a sacred and angelic unity, the secret of life has been discovered so far as they are concerned; they are no longer anything more than the two boundaries of the same destiny; they are no longer anything but the two wings of the same spirit. Love, soar.
~ Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Rittenhouse Square | Abby + Eli
Rittenhouse Square is classic Philly and I have been there many, many times for engagement sessions because it’s so iconic. Abby and Eli picked the area because it’s theirs. They live here and know the streets, houses, dogs, and shops. These are my favorite kinds of engagement sessions because I don’t just get to see two people in love, I get to see them in their place.We wandered around and hit up some of their favorite local spots. Goji, a happily prancing 1.5 year old shiba ino/jindo mix, escorted us.Just look at this face! Ahhhh! And bow tie!These two are really amazing together. They met at her roommate’s birthday party.
