Alex & Sara: Philadelphia Engagement Session

Alex and Sara. We've been friends of these two for quite a while. I've known Alex since my punk rock band days. He was always at shows. I would describe Alex as a music aficionado. Sara teaches middle schoolers in the Philadelphia school district so that's pretty tough. Together...well together they are just fun. We spent an hour or so walking around South Street, the edges of Old City Philadelphia and when it started raining we headed for the I-95 underpass parking lot (my new favorite photo location since the Tattooed Bride sessions). I'm addicted to good lighting and the I-95 parking lot is like working with a 40' softbox (reference for photography geeks). We tried to have Alex push Sara in a supermarket cart and then realized it belonged to a dweller of the bridge - I don't think he would have appreciated us stealing his cart.

In completely unrelated news this post was made while listening to two amazing cds I picked up last week. William Fitzsimmons "Until We Are Ghosts" (chill out folk music for fans of Imogen Heap) and Jesse Malin "Glitter in the Gutter" (the Replacements meet Bruce Springsteen).
