Engagement Photography at Morris Arboretum in Philadelphia: Jessica + Camren

Engagement

Remember Matt and Julia? Well this isn’t them. This is Jessica and Camren – Cam was one of Matt’s groomsmen. They all knew each other from college at the University of Delaware where Jessica and Camren first met. Both were rugby players and hung out in the same social circles as “buddies” before finally making things legit about three years ago.

They’re totally laid back and comfortable. They complement each other so well – for one thing, she’s always hot and he’s always cold. We met up at Morris Arboretum for their engagement session and had a great time (despite the bee stings). The light was glorious.

They were cracking each other (and me) up the entire time. These two seem like they were made for each other. They just fit.

In all honestly, Cam soon got jealous and won Jessica back…

Cam had bought the ring but couldn’t hold onto it for long. The beach trip that he initially planned was nixed because he just had to get this stone on her hand. He told her that a coworker had cancelled reservations at a nice steakhouse and called ahead to have champagne and flowers set up. When they arrived, the server came around with the ring on a platter and Cam popped the question.

Try not to be a hater but… Jessica is a Mets fan. There, I said it. Love truly conquers all, even baseball rivalries.

I can’t wait to see them again in September for their beach wedding at McLoone’s Pier House in Long Branch, NJ. If previous weddings are any indication, this one’s gonna be a great time!

You have to walk carefully in the beginning of love; the running across fields into your lover’s arms can only come later when you’re sure they won’t laugh if you trip.

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Logan Square | Elise + Eric
Eric and Elise are getting married today surrounded by a group of 50 of their nearest and dearest somewhere in Philadelphia.  I’m not telling you where because I don’t want you to crash their party (it’s one of my absolute favorite venues in the city). Let’s go back two years ago when they first met.  Elise had just moved to the city from Chicago and went out with friends and friends of friends.  Eric was there too and they hit it off. They kept the spark going through easy conversation at breakfast dates.  She lived in Fairmount, he in Northern Liberties.  They had spent many a lovely evening per ...

Chester County Engagement Photographer | Longwood Gardens | Alexa + Donny
Alexa knew she wanted a country boy. Enter Donny, a guy who grew up on a farm and still has pedicure responsibilities for the goats. The met online (hooray!) last year and the connection was clear. Their first date was after a shift of hers that ended at 11:45pm. They closed down the restaurant and talked until 2:30am. Conversation was effortless. He made her laugh on that night in June and he makes her laugh now. We met up at Longwood Gardens for their engagement photography session. Alexa, being the the nontraditionalist that she is, didn’t want Longwood for its impeccable hand-raised flowers. She wanted to use the other parts of L ...
