Golden, Autumn Philadelphia Art Museum Engagement Session

Even though Miriam & Evan currently live in California, they wanted to honor their early years of dating with a Philadelphia Art Museum engagement session this past fall.

Art Museum Engagement Session

The Art Museum was top on my list of recommended locations for Miriam & Evan’s session during our brainstorming session. They wanted a very “Philadelphia” location to commemorate their time in the city before moving to California. As for the “photographable” nature of the museum, I’d give it a 10/10!

We started in the backyard of the museum, making sure to incorporate the golden, autumn leaves in their photos. We slowly made our way to the front of the museum, stopping by some gorgeous landscaped areas along the Schuylkill River Trail. Funny story – as we were taking pictures on the trail, we had to take a break to let a Segway tour make their way past us 🤣 It was hilarious!!!

As we were making our way up to the front of the museum, I noticed the most beautiful golden light shining on an ivy wall and we made a super romantic, unplanned photo!!! By the time we walked up the Rocky Steps, the sun was fading low into the sky and giving out the softest light – my favorite time to take pictures! I got an incredible shot of Miriam and Evan walking into the sunset hand-in-hand at the end.

The Importance of Location

There are a few factors that go into choosing the perfect engagement session location. The location is a really important part of your photos, which is why I always help my couple choose the perfect spot! Wherever we end up taking photos dictates the vibe of the session, the feel of the photos and the memories you will one day look back on. It’s kind of like a giant puzzle – matching the location to your dream vibe, feel and sentimental value!

When choosing the Art Museum for their engagement session, sentimental value was top of the list for Miriam and Evan. They met in Pennsylvania and lived in Philadelphia earlier in their relationship. Then came the vibes – they both love the outdoors and wanted to include that in their session. Luckily, the Art Museum has a good amount of green space and landscaping surrounding it. Lastly, the memory aspect. The Art Museum is such an iconic landmark in Philadelphia with a very romantic architecture and grandiose view of the city. Miriam and Evan come back periodically to visit Evan’s family, so the Art Museum would be an easy sight to pass by and have fond memories of.

“Gabriella was absolutely amazing!!! Words cannot even describe how perfect she was, but I’ll try my best. Right from the beginning, I knew she was the one. She was so caring, calming, organized, and just a genuinely happy person. She made me feel even more excited for my wedding. She was so helpful throughout the entire process right down to the big day. AND THE PICTURES - OH MY GOD. They are absolutely breathtaking and she definitely tells the story of your day in the most perfect way. She captures every precious moment while having a smile on her face the whole time she’s with you. I can’t say enough amazing things about her. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to have the BEST photographer for any occasion. We had such an amazing experience with Gabriella and we can’t thank her enough!”

Gabriella is the BEST photographer and we could not have asked for anyone better to capture our proposal! I had intentions of interviewing multiple photographers, but after seeing her work and talking to her over the phone, I immediately booked with her. Her passion for photography is so evident. She goes above and beyond to make your shoot about YOU. She does a great job of taking control and guiding you with poses that you will love, and her candid shots are unbelievable. She had a smile on her face the entire time and we felt like a close friend was there doing this for us. Would recommend her 100 times out of 100!

Gabriella was absolutely amazing. She made the photography session so easy and effortless. Her personality is so warm and inviting, she made us feel so so comfortable during these pictures. Gabriella went above and beyond for us and I’m so grateful my significant other found her as a photographer. I would highly recommend!

Gabriella is not only an amazing photographer, but she is an amazing person! She was incredible to work with and made everything from our engagement photos to our wedding day extremely easy. She really understands your vibe and does everything she can to help make that come true! My husband is extremely camera shy, but he was so comfortable with her and the photos were amazing!

Gabriella is the BEST photographer and needless to say she went above and beyond our expectations! She was hired by my fiancé for our surprise proposal and she did a phenomenal job at capturing every single detail of it. She made our lives easy by understanding us, our personality, the way we wanted to be captured and she did just that! From showing us every beautiful inch of Longwood gardens to telling us about different poses to capturing the beauty and essence of nature! She made my dream come true with these beautiful pictures. We spent 2 hrs with her and there was sign of rush of ending the session and it was more like whatever we felt in the moment which is what I truly enjoyed. She sent us our sneak peak pictures the day off just several hours later and needless to say not only did our jaws dropped but every single person who viewed those pics while asking who the photographer was! We proudly share her information with every member of our family and friends because she truly deserves the best❤️ Thank you Gabriella for capturing the most beautiful and intimate moments of ours and We can’t wait to work with you again!

Gabriella captured our special moments perfectly! She photographed our proposal, Holud night before the wedding, and wedding day. She was very easy to work with and always communicative and responsive. She was able to handle a 300 person wedding with ease and always got the shot. I've only seen the sneak peek from our wedding weekend but I am already in love with the pictures. She truly captured the joy and happiness of the weekend through her photos, which I will treasure forever. She is also just a genuinely kind person, which makes working with her even better :) Highly recommend.
