Philly LGBTQ Photographer John Ryan of J&J Studios captured this romantic engagement for Francesco and Joseph.
We were overjoyed when Francesco + Joseph chose Forbidden Drive, Wissahickon Valley as their engagement location for their Philly LGBTQ Photography. Wissahickon Valley Park is a beautiful, woodsy in Northwest Philadelphia bordered by the quaint Roxborough, Chestnut Hill and Andorra neighborhoods. An excellent choice for any Philadelphia couple wanting a woodsy feel to their engagement pictures. The park closely borders Wissahickon Creek which makes for stunning sunrise engagement photos. The beautiful morning mist as the sun slices through the trees gives these following photos a romantic, ethereal feel–exactly what the couple wanted for their engagement photos.
We met in medical school.
I love how adventurous and creative Joseph is. His interests compliment mine and we both grow from one another as we experience new things together. I love Francesco’s curious nature excitement towards learning new things. His playfulness always makes me smile.
I proposed to Joseph as we were walking during the evening across the Brooklyn bridge for dinner in Dumbo. It’s one of his favorite bridges in the US and he was completely surprised (even though we had already picked out our engagement rings).
Dramatic and natural backdrops. Architectural landmarks and nature, which makes Philadelphia a great spot.
We have a vague date in mind and a rough draft of ideas. The only true purchase we made are our champagne flutes!
They were prompt and kind. Communication was easy and did not feel too formal. We have yet to meet them in person but based on our online communication it should be great.
We purchased a king-sized bed so our husky and two cats can fit with us. Joe has run 8 marathons and Francesco ran his first half marathon last year. Before medical school, Joseph was an interior designer. Francesco played alto saxophone in his high school marching band.
