winter engagement session in old city philadelphia

Old City Philly Winter Engagement Session

Danielle and Luke’s Old City Philly winter engagement session was the epitome of the word “joyful”!!!! These two love birds were all smiles and giggles as we took photos throughout Old City to celebrate their engagement. AND they got to cap off the session by going to the Eagles playoff game against the Giants!! So of course we had to throw some Eagles gear in there. These two are so much fun!!!

When the three of us were brainstorming for their engagement session, we knew it had to take place in Philly. They live in the city and wanted to pay homage to the place they got engaged. Danielle also mentioned a photo I had taken of them dancing at a wedding reception last summer. The photo was of them laughing while dancing together – something that defines their relationship! It was her favorite photo of them together, so I made sure there would be plenty of opportunities to smile & laugh during their engagement session. I can’t freaking WAIT for them to get married!!!!!! 🤩

Old City Philadelphia

When we first talked about their engagement photos, I sent Danielle and Luke a few of my favorite locations in the city. There were a few key reasons we landed on Old City Philly for their engagement photos. First, there is a huge amount of variation in a relatively small area. With only a few blocks to cover, your gallery can included a multitude of different images! Second, it was quintessentially Philly – cobblestone roads, Washington Square Park, the history of the First Bank, etc. Last but not least, it was close to the location Danielle & Luke wanted to end their session at – Addison Street!

Winter Engagement Session

It’s not super common to get engagement photos done in the winter, but there are quite a few pros to doing so. First, it’s not crowded!! With the exception of a few passersby, you can feel like you have whole sections of the city to yourself. That doesn’t happen in the summer! Second, it’s really easy to get variation in outfits without even changing – just take your coat on & off!! Third, the neutral palate of the bare trees takes away distracting color and allows the photos to focus solely on you.

“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.
