Cait + Marshall || A Philadelphia Waterfront Engagement

While walking to meet up with Cait + Marshall in Philadelphia, I passed by the cutest little alleyway. I knew that it had to be our first stop!

There is something so intimate + inviting about teeny alleyways in the city. They’re like a little hug among all the typically large and bustled city streets. Historical and quaint, they’re just begging you to wander down their path. And so we did!

Next, we headed towards the waterfront and the Benjamin Franklin Bridge. Cait had told me she was obsessed with the bridge and we definitely needed photos by it! + I am so glad that we did!!!

Side note- do you think it a coincidence that Cait’s favorite bridge shares a name with her dog who she is also obsessed with? I so badly wanted Franklin to come to the city for their engagement shoot… but I just found out he will be at the wedding this weekend!!! 🐶❤️ #puppylove

We got a little distracted by nearby flowering trees for their color + beauty…

but eventually found ourselves looking out at the bridge again. Do you blame us?

Carrie + Danny || An In-Home, City, and Nighttime Chicago Engagement Session

What do you get when you combine A LOT of laughs, a bean, Cardi B, and twinkly lights?  This amazing shoot in Chicago with my friends- that’s what!  Okurrrr

But really… Carrie and Danny are one of my favorite couples EVER!  They moved away from Syracuse last year to take on the Chi town life together.  I knew it would be so special to capture what this engaged time looks like for them- them in their new home, just being them.  We started off with some apartment snuggles, before heading out to a few of their favorite sights, and ended on their rooftop with the city lights twinkling all around us.

Their goofiness is THE best and their hearts are so so good.  They’re the type of people you want to hang out with all day, every day.
