Chester County Engagement Photographer | Longwood Gardens | Drea + Steve

Engagement

Philadelphia sports fans are famous (okay, notorious) for being particularly crazy and fanatical.  I’ve had my Flyers fans and Eagles fans and Phillies fans but Drea and Steve were my first Union fans.  In fact, they owe their relationship to the soccer team.

The Philadelphia Union cheering section, the Sons of Ben, had an away game in Montreal 3 years ago.  Steve went with a group of friends and Drea went solo (some friends backed out last minute).  It was on the bus back that Steve and his rowdy friends chatted up Drea.  They were shot down when they invited her out that night.

4 months later at a Union charity event, Steve walks in from a Santa run (in a Santa suit), recognizes Drea, and finally gets her number.

We did their engagement session at beautiful Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square during their Orchid Extravaganza.

Last July Steve and Drea took a trip back to Montreal where Steve popped the question in front of a beautiful old church.  I love the delicate diamond infinity band Drea chose for her engagement ring.

I’m psyched for their wedding this May at Duportail House.  I’m expecting a bunch of yard games and a hell of a good time!

“Why do you build me up, Philly U baby, just to let me down and mess me around.. then, worst of all (worst of all!) you never score Union like you say you will, but we love you still! We need U! (We need U!) more than anyone Union, you know that we have from the start! So build me up, Philly U don’t break my heart.”

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | 30th Street Station | Jenny + Casey
You are just going to flip over these pictures from Jenny and Casey’s engagement session at 30th Street Station the other week. The lighting was incredible, they were absolutely adorable and affectionate, and we got ourselves into some great situations. This session was fantastic because it really shows how the location can tie into a couple’s past and make pictures that are that much more special. For a little bit of background, Jenny and Casey met… out… somewhere in Boston. He was hitting on her while she was with some co-workers and Jenny, being the firecracker that she is, made him work for her attention by grilling him on what he did ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Society Hill |Erika + Chip
It was the perfect evening to spend around Society Hill, Erika and Chip’s old stomping grounds from when they first met.  If you’re an early morning news watcher (CBS3), you’ll certainly recognize the beautiful and spunky Erika von Tiehl.  I spent time with her and her dapper beau, Chip, as we wandered took advantage of some great light, happy places, and loving laughter. We started our fun at Headhouse Square before checking out Twisted Tail, one of their favorite bars.  The affection between the two was palpable.  On their second date, Chip made Erika dinner at his place.  He prepared the steak and she made apple pie.  He moved the c ...
