Yen + Charles || Philadelphia, PA Engagement || Modern Philadelphia Wedding Photographer

It's so much fun to get to know people and the places they love.

Yen + Charles took some time on a beautiful April night to show me just how quaint the neighborhood around their home in Queen Villiage can be.  Between the lovely sun-kissed, Venice-esque side streets and the mosaic masterpieces, it didn't take long to see why they planted their roots here.  As we meandered through the streets in Bella Vista, Charles looked my way with a child-like grin and said, "I have an idea..." and a few blocks later, water ice had been added to the party.  I'm not really sure why, but I think it's so much fun when people eat food during their engagement sessions (like cheesesteaks at Geno's or pancakes in your kitchen).  It's real, kinda messy and lets so many walls come down on the journey to feeling comfortable in front of a camera (truth be told though- if these two felt funny in front of the lens, they totally fooled me!).  

Y + C:  Thank you for showing me around your 'hood!  Your admiration and appreciation for all that makes Philadelphia GREAT is inspiring.  It was so nice to get to know you both better over some lemon and cherry. I mayyyyyy or may not have found some water ice later that night too.   :)  Cannot wait for October!!
