We spent the late afternoon walking around the Fairmount Horticulture Center in Philadelphia with Mary and Joe. It was an adventurous day filled with completly open hearts and a plethora of laughter. We’d repeat this day in every season if we could.
Mary and Joe drove from New Jersey for some quiet (and incredibly fun) Philadelphia engagement photos. The Fairmount Horticulture Center is a unique gem of a venue. It’s tucked away in Philly’s gorgeous parks system and just secluded enough to make any wedding or session personal, intimate, and beautiful. Mary and Joe walked all around and through it with us for a day of open hearts and minds.
It didn’t take long for these love birds to warm up to us. Any nerves were melted away (from either side) with a bit of coffee and conversation. They are easy going, happy, funny, and down to earth. Their connection is immediately apparent and watching how they love one another makes your heart soar. Their laughter is contagious and warm. I knew while we were in the middle of our adventures together, that I’d come home to photographs so genuine and uniquely “them”.
I cannot believe we have to wait until next September to photograph their wedding. I couldn’t be more excited for them to say “I do”.
Ashley and I can’t wait to capture it all. We’re practically counting down the days.
