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!

He’s always hot; she’s always cold but somehow someway we managed to get the perfect day for an extended engagement session for Katie and Nate. First we strolled around Fairmount and then we wandered down to the Rittenhouse Square area for some A+ engagement pictures filled with liquid courage, Christopher Walken impressions, potatoes, high fives, the most pitiful thugs you’ve ever seen, and so much laughter. You will really want to see the rest of this session!

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Kelly Drive | Sophie + Ben
Sophie was given fair warning about Ben.  He lived across the country and neither felt “the spark” on the first date.  Call it fate or just plain perseverance but they’re getting married at the end of the month in what I’m certain will be an incredible and emotional day. I walked around with them through a lush little park on Kelly Drive on a sunny day. The two met online.  Ben was living in California but working in DC for long stretches at a time so it made sense to look into what the east coast had to offer.  He contacted Sophie but, with no profile pictures, there was no response.  You can’t blame him for trying for this g ...
