Engagement Photography in Chestnut Hill: Katie + Seth

Engagement

Katie & Seth met at work, fell in love, vacationed in Mexico, didn’t yet get engaged, and then went to Morris Arboretum where Seth proposed. (She said yes, by the way.) Katie and Seth have a 110 year old house and a Jack Russell terrier. They also have a whole lotta love and yours truly as their wedding photographer for their Radnor wedding at the Willows this September.

The three of us met up last week in Chestnut Hill to go wandering and take some engagement pictures. It is a great little town – the storefronts have oodles of character and the main street is cobblestone.





I gasped when I saw this fantastic green door half-covered with ivy.


And Katie had scoped out the area earlier and took us to a monstrous playground.




We found our way around to an old water tower as well and meandered through the neighborhoods.



We stopped outside of cake, an adorable greenhouse/café that we all committed to checking out some other day.


We took pictures with some of the fierce local wildlife. Seth, what did you name him?


And I had them playing chicken with the traffic. We all came out unscathed but don’t think that photography sessions aren’t fraught with danger.


All in all it was a great evening and I’m really looking forward to what they have in store for the wedding. Check back frequently because it’s coming up soon! Thanks, Katie & Seth!

I have been falling in love with Cait and Bob for a while now. Every interaction has been so lovely. They are the kind of people you look forward to seeing and I’m bummed that I don’t have a good reason to run into them again before their wedding at the Bellevue next year.Before I get too depressed thinking about that, let me share their engagement photography session in lush Wissahickon Valley Park (part of the Fairmount Park system). We started our adventures by Valley Green Inn.I am really into their meeting/first date story. They met through a… um, mutual friend and were set up on a blind date. The plan was Bahama Breeze for dinner f ...

It was just last month that Erin and Scott celebrated their 5 year anniversary of that fateful night in March when they met at a bar for a birthday party. They chatted and had arranged a date by the next week.I entered the picture a few months ago when they contacted me about photographing their wedding coming up this June at Castle Yacht Club in New Jersey. I was excited to meet them in person for their engagement session around the Philly Art Museum just the other week. Spring was in full bloom and I was psyched to make use of it. We had perfect puffy clouds, lots of light, color everywhere, and a touch of wind for good measure.We made ...
