You know what’s better than buying a new house? Buying a new house with your partner and using it empty for the background to your engagement photos! And that’s exactly what this gorgeous queer couple decided to do with their brand new west Philly home! I adore these two and if you have been around the Philadelphia Burlesque scene before, you probably know them better as Kyla Ren and Genome Kelly. These two are so sweet and so in love and we were able to shoot these images the day they closed on their new house together and I just love how this session turned out! We shot around their new place and I love how the shoot is both glam and cozy and honestly, oh so them. I would love to see these kind of shoot becoming a trend! Photography should capture big moments and to me, buying a house is one of those big moments and celebrating a new engagement along with that? Perfection! So scroll on check out this magical, new home engagement session and then leave these two cuties some love!
I can't believe that I will have the honor of photographing these two again in just FIVE days! Lee and Alex are tying the knot on Saturday at a family farm and last weekend we met up to shoot their engagement photos! It was so fun getting to this awesome couple as we explored around Valley Forge National Park! From the moment we started taking pictures, it was obvious that their love is built on a lot of laughter. And coming from 2 years of marriage, I can tell you that a love that is full of laughter makes for the best kind of life! But seriously though, these two are so easy going, down to earth and obviously in love that you can't help but like being around them.
Lee and Alex, I can't wait for this weekend and being so honored to capture the start of this exciting next chapter in your lives. I am crossing my fingers for the perfect weather and the most amazing day for the two of you! For now, enjoy a few of my favs and look forward to seeing them again real soon!
