Fairmount Waterworks Park Engagement - Josiah & Steph Photography

Sarah + Courtney

Okay, we chose way to many photos for this blog! It was just too hard to narrow down all of our favorites! Sarah + Courtney were completely naturals in front of camera and they were so much fun to photograph! Seriously, they required hardly any coaching and just naturally made every pose look sooo great! They were also so full of laughter and love and that made the process so much easier. Not to mention, we had some awesome lighting. Fairmount Waterworks Park which is right behind The Philadelphia Museum of Art is one of our favorite places to shoot. There is so much variety in the backgrounds here that you really can’t go wrong!

Q: How’d You Get Engaged?

Sarah: Courtney orchestrated the entire surprise proposal on December 15th, 2019. She got my friends to plan going out to brunch then checking out a new brewery in Bristol, PA (where we had our first date). Afterwards my friends led me to a small park where both our families were waiting and Courtney proposed in front of everyone with music and signs. I didn’t expect the proposal at all, because for the 8-12 months before that point I thought I would be the one to propose, but I was overthinking it and she beat me to it. We celebrated at the brewery afterward and I just remember feeling so happy. I had also planned having family and friends around to celebrate our engagement so it felt like a perfect, full circle moment.

Q: Any Advice For Couples Planning Their Weddings?

Sarah: Our advice for future couples is to make the day your own, and to not be afraid to break wedding traditions. There’s a lot of pressure to adhere to certain things in the ceremony and reception, but your wedding day is about the both of you, and it should reflect whatever makes the both of you feel happy and joyful.

To Sarah + Courtney:

We had such an amazing time with you both last week during your engagement session at Fairmount Waterworks Park! You guys did an amazing job and we’re so thrilled with how these photos turned out! Thanks for going along with our ridiculous games and prompts! We can’t wait to show you the rest of the photos, but until then, we hope you enjoy this sneak peek at some of our favorites!
