Natalie + Mychal | Schuylkill River Trail Engagement Session

November 25, 2017

Old City, Philadelphia

Hi friends! 🙂 Can you imagine all the feels you would feel if you were proposed to at your most favorite place. Well, that’s exactly how Natalie and Mychal’s forever began. Mychal, who is the nicest guy, is also practically the biggest Dodgers fan in the world, and Natalie is full of life and greatly cherishes time with her family. Knowing her well, Mychal proposed to Natalie at her grandparent’s condo, which is her most favorite place in the entire world. Tell me this doesn’t make you want to ugly cry and say Yes at the same time!

When Natalie reached out to me to have their engagement photos taken and mentioned that they’d love to bring the third member of their family, a little Pomeranian named Eevee, my first thought was “Yes, my pretty and your little dog too!” This was going to be so much fun, I’d get to photograph a lovely couple and their cute little dog too, I couldn’t wait.

How cute is Eevee? 😮 She was so photogenic. Watch out Hollywood. I think I found America’s Next Top Doggie Model!

As recent transplants to the City of Brotherly Love, Natalie and Mychal wanted to capture the iconic Philadelphia skyline in their engagement photos, and the Philly skyline did not disappoint. We started their session along the historic Schuylkill River Trail and ended with the dramatic Philly skyline looking out over the South St. Bride, and I must say it was so much fun. We filled the quickly passing time with snuggles, dancing, laughter, and some photos in between.

Natalie and Mychal were so easy to work with. Throughout the session, when I asked Natalie and Mychal to dip, twirl, snuggle, and smooch they did it so effortlessly. This only goes to show how made for each other they truly are.
