Elisa and I had brainstormed different ideas and she loved he idea of having a Philadelphia Zoo Engagement Session! We started their shoot later in the afternoon when the zoo was empty. We picked an awesome time to go because they had an art installation of recycled materials sculpted into animals. Dan really rocked the pink bunnies! I have photographed there 2-3 times before and have been there with family. The grounds are beautiful and there are so many unique spaces to shoot. The Polar Bears never seem to corporate and take a dip in the water for us. I had an amazing time working with them and I am looking forward for their wedding at the Philadelphia Marriott this upcoming winter.

Philadelphia Zoo Engagement

Elisa and Dan used this photograph for their Save the Date.  She is a big Giraffe fan so I did not have to pull her leg when I suggested this as the cover.  The Philadelphia Zoo is a magical place that I went to as a kid and continue to go there and photograph couples and surprise proposals!
