Beverly + Charles: An Engagement Session around Rittenhouse Square

Engagement

Beverly, Charles, Emma and I met up the other week for a great engagement session around Rittenhouse Square. Let me give you a bit of back story: Bev was good friends with Chuck’s sister. They’ve known each other for ages. They even went to the same college (Villanova) and dated a bit while they were there. They parted ways and Chuck went off to med school in Virginia. He came back to the area, the two reconnected, and guess what… They’re getting hitched next May at the Radisson Warwick in Philly.

The four of us started off in Rittenhouse Square. Emma is a gorgeous two year old Golden Retriever with a lovely coat and an affinity for squirrels (sadly, I’m not a squirrel). I absolutely love the shots we got of this little family while at the park.




(As a side note, I adore the hand on face “you’re all mine, baby” kiss!)


Bev’s sister came by to escort Emma home and we continued on.




We wandered over to Broad Street for one of the quintessential Philadelphia pictures.


Our next stop was the Ritz Carlton, a particularly important place to them. Back in February Chuck took Bev out for a surprise dinner at the Ritz. They needed a night out from studying and such. The dinner went well and they started walking back home (one, maybe two blocks – it’s debateable). Chuck turned to Bev and asked if she wanted another surprise… He took her back to the Ritz and up to a room that he had decorated earlier that day and got down on one knee where he asked her to marry him.


We rounded out our e-session on a little side street with fabulous brick buildings.



It was such a fantastic time. I can’t wait to see them next spring!

For you see, each day I love you more Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow.

Jeanette and Kevin have been together for 6 years.  I’ve known them since 2010 when I photographed Kevin’s sister’s wedding.  It does not seem like it has been that long at all!  Their family is fabulous and that’s one of the things that attracted Jeanette to Kevin in the first place – he has always shown that he’s extremely family oriented. Kevin had had his eye on Jeanette for some time.  He contacted her when the time was right and asked her out.  She was extremely nervous for their first date and was convinced Kevin was having a bad time because he didn’t smiled.  She realized at the end of the date that he had something that wasn ...

It was just last month that Erin and Scott celebrated their 5 year anniversary of that fateful night in March when they met at a bar for a birthday party. They chatted and had arranged a date by the next week.I entered the picture a few months ago when they contacted me about photographing their wedding coming up this June at Castle Yacht Club in New Jersey. I was excited to meet them in person for their engagement session around the Philly Art Museum just the other week. Spring was in full bloom and I was psyched to make use of it. We had perfect puffy clouds, lots of light, color everywhere, and a touch of wind for good measure.We made ...
