Race Street Pier Engagement Session, Philadelphia PA

Philadelphia Waterfront Engagement

Sarah and Kurt had a delightful photo session at Race Street Pier in Philadelphia PA. The Philly waterfront is becoming a destination for the city and a wonderful choice for an engagement session.

Race Street Engagement

The pier is tree-lined and boasts amazing waterfront views of the Delaware River. I love the expansive Benjamin Franklin Bridge in the distance. The early fall is such a popular time of year for photos. The splashes of colorful leaves and cooler weather make you want to get outside! Race Street Pier offers a wonderful mix of the urban city and the natural element of water and trees.  You get the best of both worlds at this unique outside space.

Cherry Street Pier


The Cherry Street Pier is right net to Race Street Pier. Cherry Street Pier is a multi-purpose public space open year-round. There are permanent artists who have studio spaces there as well as all kinds of shows and events hosted throughout the year. We decided to pop over and Sarah and Kurt hopped right on the giant teeter-totter. You are never too big for fun!

    Gorgeous couple and beautiful images- such a beautiful day for an engagement session too! Race Street Pier is the perfect spot and either you lucked out that it was totally empty or you’re super talented and avoided all pedestrials in your frames!
