Philadelphia engagement sessions

Meg and Tim - A Manayunk Philadelphia Summer Engagement Session


It's funny how some locations I never shoot in and then all at once I'll have 3-4 sessions in the same location within a few weeks!  This summer that has been the case with Manayunk Philadelphia!  I shot around main street Manayunk several times and so when Meg and Tim wanted to do their shoot there as well, I knew I had to find new favorite spots to shoot these two in.  And oohhhh did we! 

Meg and Tim brought their cute little pups for a few photos and then we wandered around side streets, the riverwalk and these two stole sweet little kisses along the way.  I LOVE the way Tim looks at Meg, and how easy going these two are.  They were so fun and easy to photograph and I loved getting to hear more about their wedding plans as we walked around.  These two tie the knot next fall and I just know it will be a beautiful day because of the love they have for each other.  And for me, that's my favorite to capture of all. 

Meg and Tim, thank you for choosing me to be the one to photograph your wedding day and this season of your lives.  I love so many of these images and I can't wait till next year for you two to finally be husband and wife! 

Bethany and Jason - Philadelphia Spring Engagement Session

Things have been a little busy around here with the launch of our new business, Tantamount Love.  If you haven't heard about what that's all about, we launched a brand new business dedicated to doing more than paying lip service to the idea that #loveislove and the first 2 weeks have been amazing!  But now that things are starting to calm down, I have SO many sessions from the last few months that I want to share with all of you!  And up first is Bethany and Jason!

These two are seriously not only super cute together but really freaking funny!  They had me and Jordan laughing their entire session at The Philadelphia Museum of Art and were just the kind of couples we love working with.  They wanted a mix of sweet photos with a little bit of corny, funny photos and we loved the results.  They even brought their favorite comic books and books for a few shots!  These two tie the knot in January ans we are so so so excited to be apart of the barn wedding!  For now, though enjoy a few of our favorites from their spring e-shoot! 

Alyssa and Timmi - A Pastorius Park Engagement Session

Sometimes the weather just refuses to cooperate.  You make plans for an engagement session for one date and then it rains.  You reschedule and it rains again.  You reschedule again and this time clouds are rolling in but you decide to go for it anyway!  That was how it went for Alyssa and Timmi's engagement session but despite everything, these two and their sweet little one were amazing!  

We spent our time together at a new spot for me, Pastorius Park, but it was perfect!  The outdoor theater, the beautiful lake, their love for each other, all came together for a great engagement session!  And photographing Alyssa?  Oh my it got me so excited to photographer her as a bride!!!  She's a gorgeous girl with such a sweet personality and Timmi clearly loves her so much!  He even made the little letter signs the day of their engagement shoot!  Not every guy would do that!  

I can't wait for next fall when these two tie the knot but for now enjoy a few favorites from their session!  

Kris and Mu - An Urban Reading Viaduct Engagement Session

This engagement session is a different one for us!  While most of our clients opt for a park or downtown Philadelphia for their engagement shoot, Kris and Mu asked if we could take their engagement photos at a totally unique location!  We explored the Reading Viaduct - a former railway that has since then been abandoned.  It's urban feel, overgrown fields, graffiti and gorgeous views of center city made it the perfect location!  And there was even a sweet little swing!  So while this isn't our normal vibe here at Swiger Photography, we are so happy with the results!  

Check out a few of our favorites from their session and get ready to see these two again really soon as their wedding date is fast approaching!
