Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Philadelphia Art Museum | Cassie + Paulo

Engagement

Cassie and Paulo are fun, spunky, and totally in love. They met at a birthday party and she approached him and started peppering him with questions about himself. As the story goes, he ran away but came back later that night and they talked together all night long. I appreciate a chick who sees what she wants and goes after it!

Their first date was another marathon – they closed down the restaurant after talking together for 5 hours! Fast forward to a few months ago and Paulo has a plan to propose that gets thwarted by a dress shopping trip with Cassie’s sister. So she comes over to his place one day and he presents her with flowers and a card with that day’s date. You see, they keep scraps of paper with the dates of important events from their relationship and it was certainly a date worth remembering. I love it.

We started our engagement session behind the Philadelphia Art Museum.

We did a quick change into Portuguese soccer jerseys. Paulo is a huge fan of the sport. Both of them have #7 as their favorite number and Luis Figo is Paulo’s favorite player.

Flyer’s run to the Stanley Cup was a big part of their early courtship. They went to a ton of games together so it was important to pay homage to that.

Can’t wait to see you guys for that next important date in April!

There are those who think that I’m strange.
They would box me up and tell me to change.
But you hold me close and softly say
That you wouldn’t want me any other way.
