Lauren and Chester – Engagement in Philadelphia

Ah! I am so behind on blogging weddings and family shoots and engagements, oh my! Well, here is one cute engagement session – and more to come soon.

Lauren and Chester had their first date at the Continental on Market and 2nd in Philadelphia. It was a memorable night, and it led to this moment – they are getting married next summer! And Chester is now a Pennsylvania resident – he’s from Chicago, but after meeting Lauren, he decided to stick around. And another nugget of sweetness to this story, Lauren found me through her friend, Lauren – their last names are a few letters apart so they sat next to each other all through high school. And a few years later they reconnected on Facebook and Lauren saw the other Lauren’s wedding photos from Congress Hall and decided to book me for their wedding!

So, we decided to do their engagement session around the Washington Square area in Philadelphia. It was a really beautiful evening, one of those perfect late summer days, topped off with a perfect sunset which we got to see from the middle of the Ben Franklin Bridge. We had a lot of fun, and here are just a few of my favorites.
