Michelle & Patrick contacted me to shoot an engagement session for them in Philadelphia a few weeks ago. They are holding their wedding in Syracuse, NY (where they are both from) later this year……at the zoo!!! How awesome is that?!?

We met shortly after sunrise on the steps of The Philadelphia Museum of Art and spent the next couple hours getting to know each other while taking some casual photos on an unseasonably warm January morning.  After some time spent shooting around the art museum we hopped in my car and headed to Love Park in Center City before finishing the morning’s shoot in Washington Square Park right near Philadelphia’s famed Jeweler’s Row….where many soon to be engaged couples (including Dawn and I a few years ago) head to buy engagement rings.

Michelle & Patrick, it was a pleasure spending the morning with you and getting to know you both a bit.  I wish you all the best for a wonderful wedding and happy marriage together for many years to come.  Enjoy your engagement pictures!
