Kerry McIntyre Photography beautifully captured every endearing moment that Jordan and Rory shared during their lovely engagement session.  The captivating backdrop to their romance was the renowned A Love Letter For You mural arts project that lines the rooftops of West Philadelphia.  We absolutely love this location for engagement photos, as it exemplifies a myriad of love, peace, and happiness!  The beauty captured on this day exhibits one couples love, and the love that this city holds through art and culture.

How They Met:

“Rory and I met while we were both undergraduate students at Saint Joseph’s University, we instantly hit it off. We went on our first date in September 2013 and have been inseparable ever since!”

“I love Rory’s incredible thirst for knowledge and passion for education, his ability to connect with anyone he meets, and his desire to make the world a better place, one day at a time. I also really love his right dimple.”

The Proposal:

“We were on what I thought was an impromptu trip to New York City, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that Rory had planned the whole day visiting my favorite places in the city. We were strolling through Central Park at the end of the day when Rory pulled me into an empty gazebo, recited a poem he wrote me, got down on one knee, and asked me to marry him. It was a low key proposal which is exactly our style but all the small details throughout the day showed me he put a lot of thought into it which made it the most romantic day of my life (so far).”

Engagement Session Inspiration:

“We wanted to find a way to incorporate our everyday lives in the shoot while showing off our beautiful city at the same time, Rory and I take the El almost everyday and the “A Love Letter For You” Murals always brighten the commute. We also hoped that the bright and fun vibe of the murals would lend a spontaneous quality to the photos. Finally, we wanted to capture some of the more iconic scenes of boathouse row and the art museum for more formal (but still fun!) photos.”
