Julia + Matt’s Engagement Session

Engagement

Do you have a zombie contingency plan? No? You’d better get on that asap. Matt and Julia do and they’re awesome (and I’m not just saying that to secure a spot for the impending zombie apocalypse).

These zombie-hating lovebirds met at the University of Delaware. He played rugby for the men’s team; she played rugby for the women’s team. He hollered at her from the sidelines at games and she fell for him. They are two utterly hilarious people. Matt is good at being fussy and cracking jokes and Julia is good at rolling her eyes at Matt. They play off of each other so well. They’re partners in crime. They laugh. A lot. And it’s magical.

Their e-session had been rescheduled so many times due to the weather that I’m almost amazed it happened at all. We finally met last week in Manayunk to wander around for the pictures.



We definitely wanted to get the bridge in the background. Unless you looked for it, you’d never know there was a cute little path right behind Main Street that runs along the river.


And some great abandoned train tracks.


Then we made our way over to Pretzel Park which is right next to St. John the Baptist Church where they’ll be getting married next April.





And because they’re really just big kids (especially Matt), we had to play on the swings.


Like I said, partners in crime…


We were really excited about shooting under the train along Cresson St. The whole look of it is so neat with the cobblestone street and teal-painted metal.




As a couple and individually, they’re just fabulous people. It can be nothing short of a great session with so much laughter.


I cannot wait for their wedding next year at the Old Mill in Media, PA. I don’t want you to get too anxious, but I got a pretty good tip off that they’re going to have the most amazing, incredible, awesome cake ever. Ever! And it’ll be quite the party too. 2011, hurry up!

Thanks, Matt & Julia, I love you both to pieces!

Newtown Square Engagement Photographer | Okehocking Preserve | Jackie + Geoff
I’ve never met a more cuddly snugglepuss than Geoff.  While Jackie sometimes has to remind him about personal space, the bond they have is absolutely adorable.  They go on a date night every Friday night.  Every couple talks about doing such a thing but these two actually do it!  Theater, hikes, restaurants… I met them not far from their home in Newtown Square at Okehocking Preserve where they wander the gorgeous landscape and visit their favorite old, stone building. They met online two years ago and went on their first date at Farmicia.  He could tell that there was something special from that first day. She feels ...

Engagement Photography in Philadelphia: Carrie + Matt
Like so many couples, Carrie and Matt were set up by some mutual friends. Great intuition on the part of the friends because they hit it off and flourished in a relationship that became long distance just 5 months after meeting. The way they act together, it’s like they were made for one another.Both have family in California, where they will be married this October. Matt proposed at the San Francisco restaurant where they had their first date (the adorable L’Osteria in North Beach).They chose Philadelphia for their engagement pictures. They’ve made a home here while Matt was in law school (and Carrie was still travelling all over the pla ...

Engagement Session at Chrissy Field
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 ...
