Philadelphia City Hall Engagement Session | Philadelphia Destination Photographer | DJ + Sam

 Philadelphia City Hall Engagement Session

The whole trip to Philadelphia to visit DJ + Sam for their engagement session was surreal. Everything went perfectly, from the traffic there and back to the weather and all the moments in between. Beyond the logistics, though, I couldn't have picked a more perfect couple to spend the afternoon with. These two made Philadelphia fun, exciting, and beyond memorable.

DJ + Sam have an absolutely unbelievable proposal story. Sam had always wanted a pair of those famous red bottoms from Christian Louboutin's original boutique in Paris, so they took a trip there this May and just so happened to stop by the store and grab a pair (just wait until you see them!). Later on that same trip, DJ dropped to his knee with the Eiffel tower in the background and asked Sam to spend forever with him.

After that story, I knew this engagement session would be nothing short of incredible. We began the day at the famous Rocky Steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum, and within minutes Sam had all of us laughing about her wild obsession with donuts (she's a Dunkin' girl, only because there are no Krispy Kremes nearby). We headed over to the famous Water Works Restaurant before ending with absolute perfection in front of Philadelphia City Hall, where Sam channeled her inner Carrie Bradshaw with those amazing shoes and a dreamy tulle skirt. Everything was perfect, and I just couldn't believe I got to be there for it.

DJ + Sam - THANK you! I loved Philadelphia, I loved sightseeing, and I simply adored you two together. Thanks for making me laugh so hard, and for an engagement session I will never forget. I can't wait until next September!
