Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Philadelphia Museum of Art | Erin + Scott

Engagement

It was just last month that Erin and Scott celebrated their 5 year anniversary of that fateful night in March when they met at a bar for a birthday party. They chatted and had arranged a date by the next week.

I entered the picture a few months ago when they contacted me about photographing their wedding coming up this June at Castle Yacht Club in New Jersey. I was excited to meet them in person for their engagement session around the Philly Art Museum just the other week. Spring was in full bloom and I was psyched to make use of it. We had perfect puffy clouds, lots of light, color everywhere, and a touch of wind for good measure.

We made our way around Waterworks and up to the front of the museum.

I love this series of images we got on the steps there.

They had talked about rings a few weeks before Christmas and Erin was hopeful. They opened presents early Christmas morning and there was no bling to be found. She was a little disappointed. They were getting ready to clean up and get ready for the rest of the day when Erin asked about her phone. Scott told her it was by the door and when she turned around, she found him decked out in a suit, flowers in hand, and on one knee with a gorgeous ring. It was perfect.

They’re big sports fans so it was important to pay homage to the Phillies for the engagement pictures so they donned some red shirts (don’t you just looooove Erin’s VS striped T?) and we played in the greenery of the azalea garden.

The wedding is just around the corner! Can’t wait to see you two so soon! P.S. Erin’s hair is naturally super curly. I’m incredibly impressed with how awesome it looked for the shoot and even more excited to see it in ringlets for the wedding.

I feel like I got quite the treat the other week when Candace showed up in something other than sweatpants to her engagement session with Scott in West Fairmount Park. From what I’m told, she practically lives in them. Rightfully so. Their schedules are sooo busy – her with dental school and him with doctor’s hours. Nights involve coming home, getting take out, watching Law & Order, and falling asleep on the sofa together.I was so glad that they were able to make time to come to Philly from Boston for our session. It was a bit chilly but they both looked absolutely fantastic and the park was incredibly lush and all ours!They’re prett ...
