Brittany + Justin engagement session in Delaware

Engagement

So I see this couple show up on motorcycles and think to myself, “I bet they’d be fun but no way that’s my couple. Who wants to be worried about helmet hair for their engagement session?” I text Brittany to get her ETA and receive, “We are here! By the bikes :)”. Awesome! And not a single trace of helmet head.

We met at Brecknock Park in Camden, Delaware and the session pretty much rocked. As well as defending her against spiders, Justin can put Brittany in fits of laughter. He’s a goofball and they play off of each other so well.


We had the kind of light that you get in winter. The kind that makes everything crisp and peach-colored. March came in as a lion and we got a very chilly evening to go along with that delicious lens-flare inducing light.



Brittany grew up right around the corner. She knew the park well. We walked through some paths with dappled light, ponds, and naked trees.





I really can’t wait for their beach wedding this May. They’re the perfect combination of affectionate and playful. It seems like they’ve known each other forever.



Oh, and Brittany has the most incredible light blue eyes.


And of course we had to get in some pics of the bikes. Brittany got her bike license just a few days before in the pouring rain. Incidentally, these colors are close to their wedding colors – turquoise and orange. Nothing ordinary for these two!


Yeah, they’re pretty great.


Brittany and Justin, see you two very, very soon! I’m sending good vibes your way for a very speedy recovery for Justin.

Oh blessed be the day, the month, the year, the season and the time, the hour, the instant, the gracious countryside, the place where I was struck by those two lovely eyes that bound me.

Jamie and Jeffrey are winos in the best possible sense of the word.  Together they share an affection for wine that has been a common thread in their relationship.  Of course that meant that there was no where else but a winery for their engagement session.  They found the perfect place at the picturesque Galer Estate Vineyard & Winery in Kennett Square. Jamie and Jeffrey are both committed to working on self-betterment.  They met at a Landmark Forum course on communicating. The romance didn’t begin until a year later as Jeffrey had just moved back from California. I forgot to ask about her apparently troubled eyes ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Wissahickon Park | Amanda + Matt
Perhaps they can’t be trusted to write their own vows but Amanda and Matt are the kind of couple I want around all the time.  This isn’t about the pictures (though, yes, they’re both pretty damn hot) but just because they’re fun people and I feel that I could come up with some kind of tough mudder obstacle course to get them back for our engagement session.  (I kid, I kid.) I had a really great time sweating through the woods in Wissahickon Park near Valley Green Inn.  This was a special place for them – when they were both in law school at Villanova and living in Roxborough this is the place they’d come to take a break from the stress ...
