Center City E-session|Lucia & Ben

Lucia and Ben met in high school and started dating in college, and now the couple has been together for 7.5 years! Lucia and Ben love being active together! They run together and take walks around their neighborhood in Philly daily. The couple is just like best friends! Even though they are very different from each other, Lucia being a shy person while Ben is outgoing, the couple balances each other very well!

The Proposal:💍

Ben proposed after dinner at Parc in Rittenhouse Square Park. Initially, Ben told Lucia they were going out for an early birthday celebration since they would be away with Lucia's family the following week. After dinner, Ben and Lucia walked thru the park, and this is where he proposed. The proposal was significant for the couple because they always take walks in Rittenhouse Square. Lucia loves going to the Farmer's Market there on Saturdays, and their favorite restaurant (Parc) is where they had dinner together before the proposal.

Here are some favorites from their Center City e-session beautifully captured by Ralph Deal Photography.

Let's Talk About Your Wedding!

"Ralph was absolutely amazing. Our wedding was an out of town wedding so it was challenging to set up meetings with all the vendors, but Ralph was extremely accommodating and worked with us through each step of the process. During the photo shoots he was an excellent communicator and knew exactly what he wanted, but also took time to listen to any ideas or shots that we wanted. His team was amazing as well, and we could not be happier with the finished product. Would definitely recommend."
