Engagement Sessions at Tilden Park with Julie Cheshire

Engagement

I spent part of Friday with Julie of Julie Cheshire Photography at Tilden Park in Berkeley. I have no idea how big the place is but it seems like there are new paths at every turn.

I was there with Julie in March for some engagement pictures of Anjuli and Mark. Anjuli was adorable in her cute cotton dress but I felt so bad for her because it was sooo chilly that morning. She took it like a champ (I would have been a big baby).

And since textures are the hot new thing in photography…

Aren’t they a cute couple? They were so sweet and I have no doubt that their wedding will be beautiful.

And here are Amelia and Ted! We spent a few hours with them on Friday and had such a fun time. Amelia is a little goofy and they were both making faces the whole time. It was a much warmer day and the weather was just perfect for the session.

This is their serious and lovey side, but just you wait…

We found some really cool trees that we just had to use. The bark was completely smooth and all those spindly branches made for a really neat look.

After getting kicked out of the gardens, we drove to a grove of eucalyptus trees and the smell was just intoxicating. The light coming through those huge trees was spectacular and I was kicking myself for not bringing my wide angle lens.

I kind of like this old 70s, vintage-y look, what do you think?

We then found some grass and brought out the props. Amelia and Ted met in a history class they shared in college. Amelia says that Mark is the reason she passed. These are books from that very class and it seemed so necessary to make them a part of the engagement session.

And, last but not least, Amelia and Ted showing off their totally fun side in their college sweatshirts. Go bulldogs!

Too fun! Such a great couple! Their wedding isn’t until 2009 but I’m really looking forward to seeing them again.

I’m definitely going to get myself back to Tilden Park to explore all those nooks and crannies. Next time I’ll bget there before closing!

Philadelphia Couples Photographer | Art Museum of Philadelphia | Carrie + Matt
Carrie and Matt were my sweet little lovebirds of last year who came to me for their blisteringly hot Philly engagement session around Reading Terminal Market last year before they were off on their destination wedding in California. I so pleased as punch to see them again and find out how hardened they were after their first year of marriage. As it turns out, not at all. I had hoped the newest family member, Pierogie von Schnitzelhund, would be joining us but I believe he was needed for urgent foreign affairs. I feel lucky that we even got to do this session. It was originally scheduled for the Monday of Superstorm Sandy and I had to co ...

Montgomery County Engagement Photographer | Conshohocken | Ann + Mike
Ann and Mike have known each other since high school.  He went to The Prep, she went to Merion Mercy but it was always something friendly.  They would see each other when friends gathered back in town over Thanksgiving breaks when he was down from NYC. But then he moved back about 6 years ago and they began seeing more of each other and the relationship changed. They were among many coupled friends and hung out together as bar buddies.  He asked her out to dinner near his house in Conshohocken and brought her to a company holiday party that year and things got real. They now live in Conshohocken with their gorgeous Siberian ...

Free LGBTQ proposal photography offer
I have thought about what I want to do to celebrate Pennsylvania’s new marriage equality and have come up with the perfect thing: free LGBTQ proposal sessions! Wedding proposals are my favorite things to photograph. I get excited and all aflutter scheming with the nervous asker and sneakily waiting for the happy couple to appear before my lens. If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you know that I don’t really do the discount thing. I am lucky enough to have a ton of couples who love my work and keep me more than busy. But marriage equality in Pennsylvania is a really huge freaking deal and an issue that is monstrously ...
