Helen & Larry's South Philly Engagement Portraits

Despite the order of these posts, we actually did meet up with Helen and Larry about a month before their April wedding for some engagement photos in South Philadelphia.  The architecture around Headhouse Market gave us the opportunity for a mix of urban and classic engagement portraits. On Sundays from May through October the area is a bustling Farmers' Market, which can also make for fun photos, but on this day we had the marketplace to ourselves. After we wrapped up there, we wandered around the surrounding South Philly streets where there was no shortage of colorful and interesting backdrops.   Looking back, I'm glad we had such a beautiful day for these photos since there was so much rain on Helen and Larry's wedding day, which is another great reason to get engagement portraits.  We were able to take our time and find the right poses, backdrops and style for Helen and Larry during their engagement portraits, and that helped a lot on their wedding day when we all dashed into the rain, they fell right into a perfect pose and we were able to get some outdoor photos before anyone washed away!
