Philadelphia engagement photographer | Old City | Allison + Craig

Engagement

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 furball.

Zelda is a 4 year old miniature Schnauzer who was originally named Muffintop (ouch).  She is more energetic that you can imagine and is frequently guilty of walk-by lickings.  (No, seriously, they hold Zelda to the side whenever someone passed by so that the unsuspecting victim doesn’t end up with a wet ankle.)

We got some great porch access at their classically Philadelphia brick home.

In the Poconos, there is a waterfall a small hike from the road.  They had visited it a few times and it was there in May that Craig popped the question.

I will be seeing them very soon for their wedding next month at Valley Green Inn.  I can’t wait!

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Old City | Sarah + Ryan
These two beautiful people graced me for an evening of tromping all overt Old City the other day.  They’re new in town, having moved from Florida in May. Ryan’s only request was water so we met at Race Street Pier to begin the pictures.  They were naturals from the first second. The two met at a country bar in Orlando two years ago.  Ryan walked in looking preppy as can be with rolled red pants, a linen shirt, and boat shoes.  Sarah just had to send a picture of this guy to her friends via Snapchat.  He caught her doing it and the rest is history! They were at DisneyWorld in January.  He managed a romantic private night ...
