Autumn Elfreth’s Alley Engagement Session by Faith West Photography


Elfreth’s Alley is one of the crown jewels of Old City Philadelphia, serving as a wonderful reminder that our city truly is the “Birthplace of America.”  The street, with it’s 32 row houses, is nestled between Front and 2nd Streets, just north of Arch Street.  Since the first home was built in 1728, Elfreth’s Alley has been home to over 3,000 people, and it is one of the last intact early American streetscapes in the nation {learn even more about Elfreth’s Alley here}.  One of the coolest things about this street is that, other than the two houses used for a visitors’ center and museum, it is still a residential street, and the houses are homes for families just as they were almost 300 years ago.  This is certainly something special for couples that have their engagement pictures taken in Elfreth’s Alley.

Alison and Kyle are one of those couples and, as always, Faith West Photography perfectly captured this moment.  Included with this sweet couple are the most important fall staples:  pumpkin spiced lattes and pumpkins on the front steps.  After some shots in the alley, Alison and Kyle took a trip to Rittenhouse Square – another historic staple in the city – rounding out the shoot with another one of the best locales Philly has to offer.  And we couldn’t help notice that ‘perfect’ color combo on Alison!!  Best of luck to you both, and we can’t wait to see your wedding pictures from Greenville Country Club!
