Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Bella Vista | Joanna + John

Engagement

I could go on and on about Joanna and John for a very long while. About how he’s obviously enamored with her or how impressively fit they are (we’re talking crossfit, paleo fit) or how they’re all kisses and laughter together or how they love creating masterpieces in the kitchen with one another or how they simply rock. Because they do. Hard.

But I’d rather get you to the pictures from their engagement session around Philadelphia’s Queen Village/Bella Vista where they live. We had a fabulous time wandering around the streets and parks and basking in some of the most incredible light.

See for yourself!

So the way these two met was interesting. Joanna is a nurse, John was a patient. He visited his and the doctor played matchmaker, only telling John that this mystery woman was someone from the office. Joanna had not been informed that this situation was going down. They met for their first date and hit it off. Obviously.

They looove being outdoors. Eight months into dating they were at Woodstock and wanted to get out and see something pretty. They found a nearby arboretum and drove up a windy road to the top of a hill and found a secluded grove. John got down on both knees and popped the question.

We did a quick change and played on. This neighborhood has such great stuff – textures, colors, light…

See, I told you – totally amazing. The day, the area, and them – Joanna and John – crazy for each other and just incredible people. I cannot wait for their wedding this September at Morris Arboretum. It will be stupendous!
