A Summertime Philadelphia Engagement Session

It was so much fun capturing Carolyn & Joe’s Philadelphia engagement session! These two are so sweet and so in love. Fun fact: C&J have known each other since they were in second grade! Their love speaks for itself in their photos. We met them in Old City, Philly at the Merchant’s Exchange Building. It’s one of our favorite Philadelphia portrait locations. The grand, marble building and the cobblestone around it make for a gorgeous backdrop. The light reflects in such a pretty way!

We strolled in the area for a bit, as the sun dropped in the sky. This area of Philly is great as it’s surrounded by parks and small squares that are filled with greenery in the warmer months! After spending some time here, we made our way to Race Street Pier. Carolyn changed into a stylish mini dress and cute heels which were perfect for strolling through the city. The Ben Franklin Bridge is always such a fun backdrop, so we love this spot on the water!

Carolyn & Joe popped champagne to celebrate their engagement and we love how the photos turned out! It was so much fun with this sweet couple. Scroll to see the magic!
