Krista Patton Photography perfectly captured Bernadette and Mike’s flourishing love in Philadelphia.  This couple and their amazing photographer explored the beautiful parts of the Fairmount area, including walks near the Schuylkill River, Waterworks, and The Philadelphia Museum of Art.  This beautiful fall day was filled with romance, and joyous engagement glee!  From these beautiful visuals you can definitely feel the love, and this couple certainly shows so much adoration for one another, that you’ll love getting a glimpse into their story below!

How They Met:

 “Mike and I met in the beginning of high school, about 14 years ago! We were very close friends and about 6 years into being “just friends” we decided to give dating a shot and here we are almost 9 years later :)”

What Do You Love Most About Him:

“I would have to say his whole personality. Where I lack, he compensates and vice versa. He is the ying to my yang. We just work. I could not imagine being with anyone else.”

The Proposal:

“I have been a runner for most of my life, running in the Broad Street Run and other Philadelphia Half Marathons for years and Mike has always been my cheerleader on the side lines. When I completed the Philly Rock n’ Roll Half Marathon 10/31/15, he was there at the finish on the the Art Museum steps. It was there that he got down on one knee and proposed! I was completely surprised! It was one of the happiest moments we have shared :)”

Engagement Session Inspiration:

“We thought what better location than the place he proposed, The Art Museum and Waterworks! Plus, what a beautiful backdrop with the fall season in Philadelphia.”

Engagement Session Experience:

“Krista Patton has covered many couples we know. Over the years I couldn’t help but gush over the beautiful work she has done, so when it came time for us to choose a photographer it was really a no brainer. I have to admit I was a little nervous for the engagement session, its not everyday you get professionally photographed with your fiancé! However, Krista made us feel so comfortable and like ourselves and I must say I think this shines through in the  photos. We have received so many compliments over them! We can’t wait for Krista to capture our BIG day this October!”
