An Old City Philadelphia Engagement | Dorothy Weschler + Zachary Garippa

Old City is one of the most beautiful and historic parts of Philadelphia. It almost seems that you can see the ghosts of the forefathers walk down the cobblestone streets sometimes. There’s stunning architecture everywhere you look. It was this spirit of Philadelphia that Dorothy and Zach were eager to capture in their engagement session.

Their Historic Old City Engagement Session

Dorothy and Zach met us at the gardens just across from the Hotel Monaco, and we began their engagement session right away in the gardens before setting off.

Old City is so versatile. You can have your pick of background. Everything imaginable including red brick, elegant staircases, lush greenery, and marble pillars. To capture this last bit, we made our way to Second National Bank, but not before we let Dorothy and Zach dance in the park.

The fabulous marble stonework and pillars of the bank provided an elegant place for these two lovebirds. These two impeccably dressed lovebirds. Everywhere we went, they stood out. In all the best ways. Even when they donned their Boston College shirts for a few pictures.

Engagement Session Tips

A great tip from this engagement session is to bring a statement piece for your wardrobe. Dorothy’s bright leather jacket contrasted well with her simple black dress. It made it possible to get many different looks with minimal changing. We loved when she draped it over her shoulders. It was an elegant yet relaxed look, just like her.

Not to be outdone totally, Zach’s patterned shirt and perfectly fitted jacket complemented his bride to be well. But far and away the best accessory was his brilliant smile. A smile that flashed every time he glanced over at Dorothy. Which was all the time. And rightfully so. These two are a pure delight to be around.
