With it's cobblestone roads and quaint side streets Old City is a great location for your engagement photos. It's become a pretty popular spot for newly engaged couples to hold their sessions. Old city has so much character and history, you can't go wrong taking your photos here!
This gorgeous spot is located in Newtown Square, just about 30 minutes outside of Philadelphia in the suburbs. If you're looking for that open air feel the preserve may be for you.
