The Williams’ | Sophisticated with a touch of playful | Philadelphia Engagement

With Julien & Danielle’s session, the story I sought to tell was that of two highly motivated young individuals on their journey of love and self-discovery. I remember the first time I FaceTimed Julien & Danielle, I was in the process of moving to my new place and had gone furniture shopping at Ikea. So for the day my office was the hot Ikea parking lot, we chatted briefly about the ideas they had in mind for their wedding but when they got to share their dreams and aspirations, I knew we had kindred spirits. At that point I was sold on working with them, more to this I was fascinated by their adventure stories from Jamaica to Thailand, with rigorous schedules like theirs I wondered how they had the time to travel and experience different cultures.

For their session, my desire was to highlight their sophistication without ignoring their playful personalities. So we started their shoot at the Rodin Museum with formal outfits to suit the garden setting, then we moved on to Fishtown where I found the perfect playful mural by Dora Cuenca. I’m beyond excited for their wedding in October which will be designed by SaraRea Designs at the Kimmel Center. Thanks, Julien & Danielle for coming all the way to Philly for our session together.
