Julia + Philip’s Rittenhouse Engagement Session
Julia + Philip’s 20’s themed Rittenhouse Square Engagement Session was a really amazing way to end 2019.
First, let’s start with why Julia chose such a creative theme for her engagement session. Julia reached out about her upcoming wedding and while we were talking details of her day, we started talking about how she loved photos of Audrey Hepburn and really would love use the 20’s theme as inspiration. Julia sent me over her Pinterest board and I was in love. These weren’t the usual photos of someone else’s work that they wanted recreated – these were old film photos taken of Audrey Hepburn in really great locations, mostly France. Some posed and some candid. So perfect! If you are considering doing a theme for your engagement session or wedding, don’t be afraid to go for it!
The Perfect Location
After talking with Julia, she decided that Parc Restaurant in Rittenhouse Square would be a perfect location for this particular engagement session. Julia and Philip met me early on a weekday morning as to not disturb Parc from their weekend rush. The Parc staff was wonderful and allowed us to use an outdoor table. Philip ordered a couple of cappuccino’s for everyone – Yum – and I started shooting. Julia and I had discussed the shoot in detail so I had a clear idea of what she wanted and they were very natural together.
After we finished up at Parc, Philip grabbed his Vespa and we moved to a Philadelphia Side street. It felt as thought we had been transported to France. Julia hopped onto Philip’s Vespa and they even were able to ride around the side streets for a few laps.
One of my favorite parts of Philadelphia is the random reflections and little peeks of light you can find. This little side street gave us both! I really love some good lines and using “harsh” light is always a challenge I’m up for. The Rittenhouse area allowed Julia and Philip to have some really unique photos for their engagement session. I hope you love this Rittenhouse Square Engagement session as much as I do!
