Kate and Carlos asked me if I would come to their quaint town of Phoenixville, PA for their engagement photos. I was immediately excited! As I have written in previous blogs, photography gives me the opportunity to explore. What could be more fun combined with my couple’s knowledge of cool spots in their town.
We met for our photoshoot at the Foundry. If you have never heard of it, I would suggest looking at their website www.phoenixvillefoundry.com to learn some of its unique history. One of the things I quickly loved about Phoenixville is the steel bridges that seem to pop up around town. For me as a photographer, I couldn’t think of a more perfect backdrop than a steel bridge with its rustic flair and design. Another stop along Main Street was the jewelry store where Carlos bought Kate’s engagement ring. This provided an opportune time to capture a special memory for the couple. As an added bonus, the store owner has two adorable dogs at the store, who were dressed as a bride and groom. I must say what an ideal way to market a jewelry store!!!
The entire afternoon was filled with laughter and catching up. It was almost like I was spending time with old friends. Kate and Carlos are such a fun and playful couple. The reasons these two chose each other to spend their lifetime is very transparent. I am convinced Kate and Carlos are headed for wedded bliss. That’s staying power, people!!
Cheers to my new friends Kate & Carlos and I look forward to their wedding. | Phoenixville Engagement Photos
