Charlie & Lillie were dressed perfectly for their engagement session in Elfreth's Alley.
Charlie, in his rich textured jacket and Lillie, in her red lacy dress, looked completely at home, like they strolled down this small street every day. But this particular Monday evening in Philadelphia was not just an every-day evening - it was their engagement session!
We met the couple at the corner of Second Street and Elfreth's Alley in Philadelphia's Old City neighborhood. If you haven't had the chance to take a walk in that section of Philadelphia, we highly recommend it! The area is seeped in American history and is a must-see part of the city. It has such rich character and we love hosting portrait sessions there! So when Charlie & Lillie said they were interested in going to Elfreth's Alley for their engagement session, we were excited to get back over the bridge and walk down the cobblestone streets with them.
Charlie & Lillie are such a sweet couple and have such genuine personalities. They made this session such a joy for us and the hour flew by before we knew it! Elfreth's Alley isn't very large, so we made sure to explore every nook and cranny of it and enjoy our conversation along the way. We could tell the two were getting more any more "into it" and excited as we went along, which is one of the main goals we have for every engagement session. We want our couples to meet us, feel comfortable with us, and get used to the way we work - before their wedding day! It means when the big day does come, we can really hit the ground running with their wedding-day portraits. You can see more about why we highly recommend you have an engagement session with your photographer here.
We hope you enjoy getting to see Charlie & Lillie's engagement session through our lens and take a little peek into their love story. We can't wait until the two tie the knot!
