Elfreth's Alley

Elfreth’s Alley

Mostly seen in fictional, magical movies or in 19th-century classic romantic movies, Elfreth’s Alley in Philadelphia is a real-life fantasy for couples who want to have a unique and artistic engagement photo session.

Elfreth’s Alley has been around since 1702 and is one of the nation’s oldest residential streets. The tightness of the alley and the narrowness of the homes give the street almost a miniature, dollhouse characteristic. It's also the perfect vintage Georgian style backdrop for your engagement photos.

The houses along Elfreth's Alley are called a trinity, and they abound in Philadelphia. The locals also call it the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost houses. What a unique location and story for an engagement session!

Don't miss taking photos in Bladen's Court located midway down the street, which is basically an alley within an alley that leads into a charming circular courtyard. Down the alley, you will see mirrors called "busybodies" projecting from the second-floor windows of many of the houses. These allowed those on the second floors the ability to see who was knocking on their front doors. Ask your photographer to capture a few photos in the mirrors for a unique photo opportunity.

Elfreth’s Alley is full of history, and a location with three centuries inside it. As soon as you enter the alley, it will take you to the colonial times. Consider a session at Elfreth's Alley and capture a part of your own history!
