With most weddings happening in the fall, the spring and summer tend to be the prime season for engagement photos. This session was no exception. We started the photos at Longwood Gardens where our bride wore a beautiful white lace dress which paired perfectly with the grounds. It was an extremely hot summer evening so it worked out that the couple had plans for outfit changes before heading to our next location. The bride and groom were getting married in Alabama the following summer but currently lived in Philadelphia and wanted photos that represented their time in the city. We decided on the Philadelphia Museum of Art for their engagement portraits. The art museum happens to be one of my favorite Philadelphia locations in addition to Cira Green, the Navy Yard, and City Hall. When the summer sun sets at the art museum you get the most gorgeous golden architecture in the photos. We were able to make some traditional portraits with the parkway behind the future Mr. and Mrs. and then went around to the back of the museum. We walked around the Waterworks and other locations and finally stopped the session in the garden area by the trails. The sun set was almost gone at this point but I love how it left this gorgeous gold behind the trees.
