Neil and Rachel's Engagement Portraits at Philadelphia Waterworks

Smiling couple on Broad Street in front of City Hall, Philadelphia, PA

Rachel and Neil are getting married next weekend! It feels like we first sat down with them so long ago, but in just a few days they will tie the knot at Knowlton Mansion in Northeast Philly. A few weeks ago I met with them for their engagement portraits. They just wanted casual portraits that included some Philadelphia landmarks so we met up by City Hall and worked our way to the Art Museum Area. The weather could not have been better with the sun shining and no rain in sight. They are both avid bikers and they told me how much time they spent on West River Drive, so we decided to end there, with the Philadelphia Museum of Art in the background. They were so much fun to be around, making each other laugh so much that I never had to ask them to smile, so I can't wait to photograph them on their wedding day.
