Classic Philadelphia Engagement Session | Philadelphia, Pa | Anna + Trey

Sep 7, 2017

Anna and Trey were such a pleasure to be around for this Classic Philadelphia Engagement Session! They are such a fun-loving couple and made me feel like a lifelong friend from the start. I actually met Anna + Trey at their apartment in Philadelphia. Eventually, we all hopped into Anna’s Fiat and began our journey! Since we figured it was the easiest way to traverse the city, we ended up having a great time getting to know each other! I love shoots like this because it gives me so much insight. Even though we were just driving around, it gave me extra time to get to know this adorable couple. Especially relevant, Anna + Trey knew exactly where they wanted to go! As a result, we created the perfect Philadelphia engagement session.

During this elegant shoot, we hit so many great spots, including the 18th Century Garden, Independence Hall, a Broad Street view of City Hall, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and much more. We managed to include a variety of different portraits because of the amazing variety in setting! I love the charming and classic feel that Olde City portrays, in addition to the industrial city. We also adored the sunlight through the trees! Also, doesn’t Anna look so luminous in white? I can’t wait until the wedding!

Most noteworthy, Trey is actually from Birmingham, Alabama. Though very different from Philly, he surely knew his way around a city! And although he now lives with Anna in Philadelphia, all of his family still lives all the way back in Alabama. This was such an exciting fact! As a result, Anna + Trey wanted their engagement pictures to embody those classic Philadelphia vibes to get their guests excited to come to their beautiful city! I surely hope that we captured the grandeur and vibrant mood of Philly! We had such a fun adventure as we traipsed about the area. The couple will wed next Summer at the Belmont Mansion and I absolutely cannot wait to photograph them again!
