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!

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Drexel University | Abby + Ryan
You see some people gazing at each other and you can tell that they’re still in the total puppydog phase. You know what I’m talking about – the smittenness that happens in the first few months or year of dating. The thing is, sometimes I see the same adoration in my couples during the engagement session after they’ve known each other for, say, 5.5 years. I saw this with Abby and Ryan.These two met at a party while they were at school at Drexel University. They played a game of ping pong (which Abby won!) and I suppose it’s been googly eyes ever since.We did their engagement session at the location of their courtship: Drexel’s campus.You k ...

[teaser] Emily + Chris’ e-session
So you know I generally post teaser images that are loving and romantic and make you say, "awww…" but I just couldn't do that with Emily and Chris. Don't get me wrong, we have plenty of lovey pictures from their engagement session around the Art Museum yesterday, but this just seemed more representative of these two as a couple.Totally goofy, totally fun, and totally in love.More soon. I promise.

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Fairmount Park | Rachel + Jon
Rachel is a top notch sleuth. She found pictures of an engagement session at an undisclosed location and worked some crazy detective skills to find it for us. As it turns out, it was in a part of Fairmount Park near the Horticultural Center. The light was beautiful, everything was lush, and there wasn’t a soul around – the perfect combination for a session. Let me give you some background on these two. I love how they met. Jon and his roommate had a room for rent in their NYC apartment a few years ago. Rachel showed up to check it out and ended up talking endlessly with Jon. She never took the room but they saw each other on gchat a f ...
