Engagement Session at Middle Harbor Shoreline Park ⋆ Lindsay Docherty Photography

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

Delaware County Engagement Photographer | Ridley Creek State Park | Hannah + Travis
Hannah and Travis met about four years ago where she was a bartender and he was “security”. The first time they talked she noted that he looked familiar. He responded, “no” and walked away. You see, Travis gets nervous around pretty girls. A few days later he realized that she was right and that they actually went to the same small high school. It took about a month later before he got the nerve to talk to her again.Needless to say, they worked it out. They booked a few months ago but I met them the first time at their engagement session at Ridley Creek State Park in Media, PA. They brought the two new family members, Lana and Jack – ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Rittenhouse Square | Anne + David
I literally met Anne and David 2 days before their wedding for their engagement session. They live in New York but chose Philly because it was where they first met. Dave’s parents were also married in Philly almost 40 years ago. It was great to be able to spend that time with them before the wedding day. I learned that they met while at Jefferson Hospital by having lots of mutual friends. There’s a debate over the actual first date but they’ve been together about 3 years, adventuring all over the world. Dave proposed to Anne at the summit of a mountain in Japan after a 10 mile hike and they have an adorable puppy named Jake.We got toget ...

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 ...
