Surprise Engagement Elfreth’s Alley

Elfreth’s Alley Proposal¬†

This Surprise Engagement at Elfreth’s Alley in Philadelphia was everything you could want in a proposal. I loved seeing the surprise, excitement and joy when he got down on one knee and popped the question “Will you Marry me?”

With an excited “Yes!” it was a sealed deal and this sweet couple was officially engaged! There are not too many moments in life that have the same excitement, promise and anticipation as a proposal and I absolutely love being there to photograph these life-changing moments.

There are many other pretty streets that are quieter if that is a priority. Check out this blog post for the best locations for a marriage proposal in Philadelphia.

After we took couples photos at Elfreth’s Alley we made our way over to Race Street Pier which was close enough to walk. Race Street Pier is a public park on the banks of the river with stunning views. It can be nice to go to more than one location for photos. The Delaware River and the Benjamin Franklin Bridge are hard not to love. It’s a scenic Philadelphia location for engagement photos warm weather, sunshine and love in the air made it all the better.
