Engagement Session at Middle Harbor Shoreline Park

Engagement

You know it’s a good match when you’re grinning while editing engagement pictures and then you receive an email like this from the couple:

Hi Lindsay,
I just wanted to say what a great time Adam and I had taking our engagement photos. I don’t think he was super excited about it before, but he really enjoyed himself – how many of your clients throw gang signs, and run headlong into Canadian geese? 🙂 He told everyone about your “Dude, your game sucks” line. It may have been cold, windy and cloudy, but it was fun!

We can’t wait to see the pictures!
Thanks again,
Stephanie

That basically sums up my engagement session with Stephanie and Adam from this past weekend. It was a lot of fun and more importantly, I just really, really like them. Adam’s in a band and Stephanie’s no girlie girl and they’re both just down to earth. Their wedding is in Gilroy in October and I really can’t wait!

Here are some shots from our blustery session at Middle Harbor Shoreline Park in Oakland. Check them out!




True thugs. Fo real.


As for the reference’s to Adam’s game, here’s a before and after. His game was obviously lacking. How are you going to pick up a shorty like that? He just needed a little encouragement.

Just an awesome, awesome couple.

See you soon!

Love one another and you will be happy. It’s as simple and as difficult as that. ~Michael Leunig

Main Line Engagement Photographer | Bryn Mawr, PA | Colleen + Karl
I really don’t think I could have asked for a better day/place/couple for an engagement session. I met Colleen and Karl on one of the most beautiful days of the year when the autumn colors were just screaming off of the trees and the temperature was ideal. On top of that, Colleen and Karl were perfectly playful, loving, and photogenic. We shot at and near their beautiful house in Bryn Mawr on the Main Line. The icing on the cake was their 6 month old Greater Swiss Mountain Dog, Samson.We played at the house for a while with Samson. We took a tiny break to change clothes so that we could wander around the gorgeous neighborhood. I loved t ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Rittenhouse Square | Abby + Eli
Rittenhouse Square is classic Philly and I have been there many, many times for engagement sessions because it’s so iconic. Abby and Eli picked the area because it’s theirs. They live here and know the streets, houses, dogs, and shops. These are my favorite kinds of engagement sessions because I don’t just get to see two people in love, I get to see them in their place.We wandered around and hit up some of their favorite local spots. Goji, a happily prancing 1.5 year old shiba ino/jindo mix, escorted us.Just look at this face! Ahhhh! And bow tie!These two are really amazing together. They met at her roommate’s birthday party. She was ...
