Engagement Session at Chrissy Field

Engagement

This past weekend I had an engagement session with a great couple who made the drive from Union City to Chrissy Field for Golden Hour (what photographers refer to as the hour before sunset when everything gets a beautiful golden glow). They have been dating for 7 years (she’s a very patient woman). Their first meeting story was great: he threatened to throw her over a balcony at a friend’s party. What an introduction. You could say he literally swept her off her feet! (Okay, that was really bad.) It was beautiful out and we made the most of the clear skies to get the Golden Gate Bridge in a few pictures.
She’s short so I couldn’t resist a tip-toe shot. (Not that I have any room to talk, just being barely 5 feet myself!)
I love going to Chrissy Field because it has so many great areas. I love grungy old industrial buildings – they just make a great backdrop.
They marry this fall and I’m so happy for them. It was incredibly obvious that they’re truly in love.

All the best, guys!

Ashley & Jeff made such a good choice in choosing this park for their e-session and I'm so pleased with the results. I also love their clothing choice – preppy yet casual. I feel like this gorgeous couple could have walked right out of the pages of J. Crew.Without further ado, here are the results…This one is absolutely ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | West Fairmount Park | Candace + Scott
I feel like I got quite the treat the other week when Candace showed up in something other than sweatpants to her engagement session with Scott in West Fairmount Park. From what I’m told, she practically lives in them. Rightfully so. Their schedules are sooo busy – her with dental school and him with doctor’s hours. Nights involve coming home, getting take out, watching Law & Order, and falling asleep on the sofa together.I was so glad that they were able to make time to come to Philly from Boston for our session. It was a bit chilly but they both looked absolutely fantastic and the park was incredibly lush and all ours!They’re prett ...
