I love photographing new places and when I was in Philadelphia this summer I was able to convince Mary and Vinny to get up early on a Sunday morning for some cute shots down the equally cute Elfreth’s Alley in historic Philly. Mary and I met through mutual acquaintances in our professional fraternity and became friends only about a year ago but she’s someone I hope to have as a friend for life! This weekend was my first time meeting Vinny and I could quickly see why Mary loves him so much! While I’ve been to Philadelphia multiple times, I’ve never really explored the city outside of the same music and sports venues, so they toured us around all day on Saturday, somehow having enough energy to do these photos BEFORE coffee on Sunday! Elfreth’s Alley is the nation’s oldest residential street - yes people still live on it! - so we had to be mindful of shooting right on people’s front stoops. Enjoy these adorable photos - I still can’t get enough!
