April & Jason Engagement - Race Street Pier Philadelphia
Meet April & Jason, now amazing friends. When they reached out to me for their engagement session they told me the story of their first date. They told me how on the first date Jason took April rock climbing. After exchanging ideas as of where to do our session I asked if they would be willing to go back to where their first date was and if anything just so we can take one photo. Although I had never been rock climbing before I so wanted to challenge myself and capture a moment from where they first meet. So we arranged that we would start the session on Race Street Pier and we would finish at "Go Vertical". We got there just as they were about to close up shop, and after working out the details, I started rock climbing, that way I would be above Jason and April and be able to photograph looking down. As if climbing for the first time was not hard enough, having to hold with one hand for dear life while trying to frame the camera and photograph with other made it the toughest situation I ever was when taking a picture.
