When I was writing pieces for my previous site, I had the privilege of interviewing Carina from Love Me Do Photography. Her interview is still one of my favorites. As a result, I was so excited to finally meet two of the three members from this dynamic trio at Lovely Philly’s grand opening (they were the official photographers)! I knew I had to ask Carina about a Carly is Inspired feature, and she happily agreed.
Rather than opting for a traditional city style engagement session featuring Philly’s renowned sites, Charly Ann + Austin’s session had them wading into and swimming in a creek. It’s always a treat to see sessions that feature places and incorporate new ideas that I’ve never seen nor heard of even though I’ve lived outside of the city for my entire life. C+A’s wedding is taking place in Mississippi next year, and these photos definitely feel like a natural first step before their big day!
From Carina: Here is an engagement shoot we did with our couple, Charly Ann and Austin. They are getting married next year in Mississippi and we did their shoot in Philadelphia. We’re really excited to shoot their wedding because we haven’t done anything down south yet. When coming up with the ideas for a location, we talked about what kinds of things the couple likes to do. Charly Ann was intent on being adventurous so we agreed on a spot in the woods where there would be a place for them to be in the water as well. I loved this shoot, I really felt like our vision worked well together. It makes me really excited for their wedding day!
