Delaware County Engagement Photographer | Ridley Creek State Park | Hannah + Travis

Engagement

Hannah and Travis met about four years ago where she was a bartender and he was “security”. The first time they talked she noted that he looked familiar. He responded, “no” and walked away. You see, Travis gets nervous around pretty girls. A few days later he realized that she was right and that they actually went to the same small high school. It took about a month later before he got the nerve to talk to her again.

Needless to say, they worked it out. They booked a few months ago but I met them the first time at their engagement session at Ridley Creek State Park in Media, PA. They brought the two new family members, Lana and Jack – one a 10 month old pitt/lab mix and the other an 8 month old yellow lab. I think Hannah and Travis know that they’re crazy for taking on two puppies, a wedding, and a house.

Somehow we had the most incredible day. The light was golden, the weather was perfect, and we practically had the place to ourselves.

Walking around with two puppies is no easy task.

There is a whole series on the steps where they’re showing me their ‘canoodling’ and completely cracking up that I just adore.

Travis took Hannah back home under the ruse of her mother’s birthday. He has finagled it so that she was allowed off work. They first went to his parents’ place where they took a walk with the pups on the large property. They stopped at a spot with a fantastic vista where there was champagne and he popped the question with ring that held the stone his father gave his mother.

I am so looking forward to their Brantwyn Estate wedding next September in Wilmington, DE! It’s going to be awesome!

“Words can never fully say what we want them to say, for they fumble, stammer, and break the best porcelain. The best one can hope for is to find along the way someone to share the path, content to walk in silence, for the heart communes best when it does not try to speak.”
~ Margaret Weis

Main Line Engagement Photographer | Bryn Mawr, PA | Colleen + Karl
I really don’t think I could have asked for a better day/place/couple for an engagement session. I met Colleen and Karl on one of the most beautiful days of the year when the autumn colors were just screaming off of the trees and the temperature was ideal. On top of that, Colleen and Karl were perfectly playful, loving, and photogenic. We shot at and near their beautiful house in Bryn Mawr on the Main Line. The icing on the cake was their 6 month old Greater Swiss Mountain Dog, Samson.We played at the house for a while with Samson. We took a tiny break to change clothes so that we could wander around the gorgeous neighborhood. I loved t ...

Philadelphia Proposal Photographer | Longwood Gardens | Julius + Clare
Julius and Clare met 9 months to the day of their proposal.  It took one 13 hour first date and they both knew that they had found their one. Julius called me to talk about a plan for photographing his proposal.  We talked and emailed extensively to come up with the perfect plan to surprise Clare.  Since it was February  and Clare isn’t keen on cold weather, we needed something that she would agree to. He considered Morris Arboretum and the Rodin Museum but both were ruled out as being too problematic with rain.  Longwood Gardens was perfect unless she didn’t want to go quite so far away that morning. We had our maps and plans.  We ...
