Rhythm of the Boogie of the Beat Engagement | Alla Spina & Philadelphia Museum of Art | Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


Azamir & Mark’s Engagement Session Highlights

These two absolutely love Philadelphia so it made perfect sense to photograph them in the city of Brotherly Love!

Mark and Azamir love graffiti, drinks, fun, and their town of Philadelphia!  So it only made sense, this awesome engagement session started at Alla Spina.  Alla Spina is a gastropub located just off North Broad Street in Philadelphia and its fun, gritty atmosphere lent itself as the perfect backdrop for some unique images. When you walk into the pub, the wall behind the bar simply reads “Philadelphia” and naturally is where we started! I love the way Azamir and Mark make each other laugh. I can tell already Azamir and Mark’s favorite images are going to be when they are smiling at the camera or eachother, but I really love the ones when they are laughing together.

A quick outfit change later; we found ourselves on the way to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The view of the Philadelphia skyline is the “crown jewel” of the art museum and one of Azamir and Mark’s favorite location. As the sun started to set over the city, they laughed and walked together in the beautiful September weather. We even snapped a few photos of them dancing a bit under the setting sun!

Our last stop was a beautifully lit street near center city. The narrow roadway and the old trees smothered with amber lights is probably the most romantic block in all of Philadelphia.  As we set up our lighting it was fun watching Azamir and Mark gaze into each others eyes under the twinkling lights and reminisce about how they met.  The emotion locked into the scene, resulting in some great photos which convey not only the location but the love they have for each other.

Is it April yet? We are so excited to meet your families and celebrate your wedding and partay like it’s 1999!!!
