Collette + Chris engagement session around the Philadelphia Art Museum

Engagement

Collette’s favorite color is green so you already know she’s good people. Chris smiles when he looks at Collette. They met back in 2005 while he was a network guy and she worked at the systems desk. He would bring Doritos to work, not because he particularly liked Doritos, but because Collette would come around and eat them. Their wedding colors will be based around 3 leaves she picked up during one of their first outings together. They are quirky and awesome and I love them.

We met on a chilly and windy day in February to wander around the Philadelphia Art Museum area for their e-session. Can I tell you how much I love what they wore? Collette didn’t get the chance to change into blue pumps (swoon!) but the preppy blazers and riding boots rocked my world. And that pop of color from her green scarf was icing on the cake! We started at the top of the steps with a great view of the Ben Franklin Parkway and glorious Philadelphia.



We walked down behind the building, stopping at Waterworks and getting some great views of the back of the museum.




Then we strolled along Philly’s famed Boathouse Row to make use of those awesome doors and a few sites.




We finished at the azalea garden. Not an azalea in sight but I’m completely digging the wintery feel and snowy ground.





Thank you so much for coming up from Virginia for the session! I can’t wait for the wedding at the Concordville Inn this October!

When you’re in love you never really know whether your elation comes from the qualities of the one you love, or if it attributes them to her; whether the light which surrounds her like a halo comes from you, from her, or from the meeting of your sparks.

Sean’s cousin is Courtney’s best friend. Sean came back from deployment in Iraq and went out to meet them one night. That was seven years ago. They love being outdoors (the original idea for the engagement session included a kayak, no joke!), especially with their 6 year old mutt, Raleigh. They spend every weekend outside so there was no way around the fact that we needed to do their engagement session somewhere lush and beautiful.I met up with them at Merion Park in Montgomery County, right outside of Philly city limits. The evening was absolutely beautiful and these two were so easy.Check out the stunning engagement ring. The diamond ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Old City | Sam + Matt
Remember when we had color outside?  I miss it.  Thankfully I still had Sam and Matt’s engagement pictures from one of the last colorful days of the year.  We skipped around Old City for some cobblestone streets and classic Philly feels. The afternoon was blue and clear.  Race Street Pier is always a great starting point. They mentioned that they saw the brand new Cherry Street Pier so we checked it out and were so pleasantly surprised.  The open iron rafters and views of the water were just perfection!  Sam explained Matt’s wandering to check out the plants.  He’s big into gardening and often stops them to point out certain pla ...
