Romantic Downtown Engagement Session in Media

Jenny and Ryan’s downtown engagement session was definitely one for the books!! Media, a town outside Philadelphia, plays an important role in their relationship. It’s where they met, went on lots of dates AND got engaged!!!

Downtown Engagement Session

The great part about doing your engagement session in a downtown area is the variety of photos you can get. There are typically lots of different types of buildings I can use to create unique photos, and we can usually find some sort of open space to get away from the architecture. One of my favorite parts about downtown sessions is the ability to go inside! Most photoshoots take place either outside or in a studio, so the ability to have vibey indoor pictures (especially at a bar!!) is super cool.

In Jenny and Ryan’s case, we spent the first half of their session outside and the second half inside. We first walked through the downtown area and took photos at various hotspots specific to Media. Some of my favorites were taken in front of the courthouse – a grand, marble building. We finished inside a restaurant that also had a cute bar area. I photographed Jenny and Ryan sipping an espresso martini through the window of the bar, which added to the nostalgic feel of their downtown session. And since we were the only ones there (it was about 3:30 p.m.), the staff let us go upstairs to take pictures in the restaurant!

The sweetest part? It was the restaurant where Jenny and Ryan went on their first date … and got engaged!!!!

An Intentional Location

Jenny and Ryan have some pretty special memories in the town of Media. Though they live elsewhere now, a lot of their courtship took place downtown. Being able to revisit those special places and document them forever with their engagement photos really added to the romantic nature of the session!

Something to consider when choosing a location for your engagement session is sentimental value. Is there a place that evokes sweet memories with each other or that is important to your relationship? If not, what kind of place would you want to create a special new memory at with your engagement session?

“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.
