Katie + Justin’s engagement session

Engagement

Ice cream-loving Katie met and fell in love with Justin, a guy from Tennessee with a southern drawl and the patience to wander around New York City all day before popping the question in front of the huge Christmas tree this past winter (he was almost forced to do it earlier at NBC Studios but that’s another story altogether). They don’t recall their first date or when this relationship became real. They met at school in Tennessee (she’s from Delaware) and their friendship eventually morphed into something more.

We all met up the other week at Battery Park in New Castle, Delaware for their e-session. This was a fantastic location with trees, fields, water, paths, fantastic light, and a heavenly breeze.

Helloooo, gorgeous skies!


And hellooooo gorgeous smiles. I actually asked Katie if her family was all dentists because her teeth were perfect and white. (FYI, she attributes this to Crest WhiteStrips.)





I love that the changing leaves pick up the exact amber/orange shade of their clothes.


And it really was awesome to have so many different backdrops within a 1 mile walk.



There were actually a ton of people at the park on that Sunday evening but you’d never know it by looking at these two. There’s a world around us, really?!


And with the last moments of sunset we got the pier to ourselves.


I’m totally digging those curved lights and the patterns in the wood. And with a cooler color treatment…


You’ll be seeing a lot more of these lovebirds next June for their wedding at Hockessin Memorial Hall. I’m going to be working on her to get an ice cream cake or Rita’s buffet going on for it. Stay tuned. Katie & Justin, thanks for the great evening!

All love that has not friendship for its base, is like a mansion built upon sand.

It was soooo great to see Jackie and Chang again. It had been far too long since her sister, Katie’s, wedding. Our jaws collectively dropped as we passed by this little path at Longwood Gardens the other day. The images that we got of the two of them are fantastic; just you wait!

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 ...
