Center city Philadelphia engagement photos
Center city Philadelphia engagement photos. On Saturday we got to shoot another wonderful couple, Neil and Jill. We agreed to shoot in the city and start at the place where Neil popped the question, Magnolia Gardens. Unfortunately, due to the season there wasn’t much color so we instead walked around the city and just had fun finding anything interesting to shoot. These guys had the best smiles ever! They gave us carte blanche and said to shoot whatever I wanted… Uh oh! I can get a little crazy when that happens but I didn’t get too wild and instead kept it sweet because that fit there personality. We found free parking (yes, even in Philly there are about 3 spots left to be found) and Just walked around. The weatherman said 60 and sunny but that of course was wrong. It was extremely windy & played havoc with Jill’s hair but they never said a word & it was very cute that Neil continually tried to fight the wind and blow her hair back in place mid shoot. lol . They were great together & didn’t even mind when I had them run into the street to take a picture next to a bus stopped at the red light. Now I ask you, what other photographer is willing to continually risk his clients lives to get the shot?!? Thought so ( j/k) . All in all I think it turned out great and we had fun getting to know each other. My beautiful wife Tracey Lynn was with me as usual and consistently showed that her eye is getting close to mines. (close, not better yet babe :)) Neil and Jill, we had a great time with you both and we are truly excited to be able to capture your special day in July at the Radnor Hotel . Cant wait to see those smiles again!
Below is a preview.
I love this shot. Just the shadows leading down to them, the hair blowing in the wind, the almost kiss. Love it! The next one also.. & the Black & white after that! lol
Now I could’ve done without the Ben Franklin memorabilia but what are you gonna do. Just look at the words themselves and it fits. “Its all about the pursuit of happiness”. How true!
