Amy & Matt | Old City Engagement, Philadelphia

Oh friends, have we got the perfect Philadelphia engagement for you! With how hot the weather has been lately, we were a little concerned for this session, but Amy and Matt decided to brave the heat and it ended up not being too bad!! We wandered around the Painted Bride Art Center in Old City because who doesn’t love bright doors and wall murals?!

How they Met

In a world where nearly everything is online, it is only fitting that Amy and Matt met online! They hit it off on their first date, when they met up to watch an Eagles game. The only catch is that Matt wasn’t an Eagles fan! He is originally from California and is a 49ers fan, BUT in an effort to impress Amy, he rooted for the Eagles that first night together :)

The Proposal

Last winter, Amy and Matt went on a fun trip to New York City to see a Broadway show and wander around the city. (Who doesn’t love the holidays in NYC?) They’ve done this for 3 years, so Amy wasn’t taken by surprise by the fun trip! The surprise she wasn’t expecting came in Central Park. The beautiful snow had turned into a dreary rain, but still Matt insisted that they walk through Central Park. As they trudged through the slush, snow and rain, Amy started to get suspicious. Matt kept pausing and having the two of them just stop to look around. They walked to a new spot in the park (none of which was plowed) and ended up at Bow Bridge. As they got to the middle of the bridge Amy noticed some weird woman pointing her phone at them, to turn around and realize Matt was on one knee!! They took a few snowy (and engaged!) pictures and also a video from the random lady before enjoying their first night engaged in the city.

Their Old City Engagement in Philadelphia

I loved when Amy and Matt mentioned wanting to do an Old City Engagement! There are so many fun nooks that are so pretty and sometimes is a good thing not to have a solid plan :) We decided to meet at the Painted Bride Art Center before heading to the Race Street Pier. Even though it was toasty out, these two were troopers AND you couldn’t even tell! I will definitely say, BOTH of Amy’s outfits paired so perfectly with all of the colors surrounding Race Street Pier :)
