Rob & Sarah’s engagement in Old City, Philadelphia was the perfect way to end our crazy weekend. We had weddings on both Friday and then again on Saturday. On top of that, this was a sunrise engagement session so we were up at 5:30am to get into the city by 7am. We were tired & exhausted, but these two really made it so much fun for us! They were so energizing and giggly the entire time. Actually, I’m not sure Sarah did anything except giggle the entire session. Rob & Sarah were both guests at John & Mallori’s wedding that we photographed on Friday and it was our first time meeting Rob, who is stationed in Tennessee in the Army. We seriously had the very best time with them and love the images we walked away with, plus some new friends! So excited for their wedding in 2019!
Rob proposed to me on March 2, 2017. Rob just returned home fro a tour in Iraq and was on “leave” from the Army. In college, Rob and I loved exploring Philadelphia together and going to new happy hours. Rob wanted to have a “date night,” and planned it all. He picked me up from school, and then we went to see the Jurassic Park exhibit at the Franklin Institute. Then we went to happy hour at the Black Sheep, before deciding to finish the night at our favorite Italian restaurant in Philly that my Uncles happen to own (Porcini). After our glass of Scotch together at the Black sheep, we needed to walk through Rittenhouse Square to get to Porcini. Rob & I could not stop talking about how happy we were and how far we’ve come since the start of our relationship. We were so thankful to be back in Philly doing the things we loved. We talked about old college memories. It was so natural. While walking through the middle of Rittenhouse square, but Rob stopped me. He smiled at me and got down on one knee and proposed. I wasn’t expecting it at all! Kudos to Rob for keeping his cool!! Then we went to dinner where my parents, sister and other family was waiting to celebrate with us. It was the perfect night!
We loved spending every second with you guys! It was one of the most fun engagement sessions ever! We think the world of you both and can’t wait for your long distance to finally be over! We hope you enjoy some of our favorites from your engagement session!
