Claire + Marc. Engaged.

When we were planning Claire + Marc's engagement session in Philly I got an email from Claire saying:  

"We're pretty casual, so we even though about doing some photos in our home; more candid insight and fly-on-the-wall than cutesy poses"

Other than, "We want to do our engagement session in Patagonia or Iceland," this is pretty much what I want to hear from clients.  She also encouraged me to shoot film (instant as well) as they both love it.  I can't ask for anything better than a couple that just lets me do my thing.  Thats when I create the most memorable images and capture the best moments for them to see visually forever.

So we set out in the Northern Liberties section of Philly to do a few pics at the bar where they first met and then walked back to their place to do a few more - and it was cold.  Bitterly cold.  And crazy windy.  But they had no complaints about it and had a good time with it.  And I think it paid off for them.

So here's a few of my favorites from Claire + Marc's session ... I'm super excited to photograph their wedding this August in Philly!
