Navy Yard Engagement Session || Nicole + Rick || Philadelphia Engagement Photographer
The Philadelphia Navy Yard is filled with so many hidden gems for photography. Lots of different backdrops and pops of color. So we were super excited that Nicole and Rick wanted to do a Navy Yard engagement session. It is the perfect location for fall engagement photos in Philadelphia. And I just kept chasing the beautiful light that was happening all around them. There was so much beautiful light that day.
We had a great time wandering around for this Philadelphia Navy Yard engagement session. I love that our couples just trust us to capture their love in their photos. We try not to be overly posey and unnatural. But we definitely will help you feel comfortable getting your photos taken. At the end of the session we came across a lone dear in a field. We tried to quietly get the deer in the background and we didn’t want to disturb it because it was eating. Of course a bunch of runners later came by and the deer wasn’t even disturbed by them. So it must be used to people being around.
Where it all began…
Nicole and Rick actually knew each other long before they started dating. They’re both part of the Portuguese community and he was friends with her cousin. Several years later they started dating and now are engaged. Rick got down on one knee during a beautiful sunset on the beach. How romantic! This is the perfect proposal for Nicole as she loves the beach. We had discussed doing their engagement session on the beach. But now that is fall it’s a little too chilly to get in the water like she had planned. Hopefully we can do that at a different portrait session with them (hint, hint) lol!
We are super excited for their September 2018 wedding at the Water Works with Cescaphe Events. It is such a great location for a Philadelphia wedding. Of course, their wedding is going to be huge. Probably everybody in Philadelphia’s Portuguese community will be there, lol! Her parents own Café Liz Restaurant and we can’t wait to go check it out. I’m sure the food there is delicious. This would give us a chance to familiarize myself with some Portuguese traditions.
We hope you enjoy these beautiful Philadelphia Navy Yard engagement session photos. We had such a great time with them.
