Lisa + Mike’s Engagement Session around Rittenhouse Square

Engagement

Lisa and Mike spent Labor Day weekend buying appliances for their new place and wandering around Rittenhouse Square for their engagement session with me. Their e-session is particularly special because it chronicles meaningful places from early in their courtship.

We started by this dingy side street near the train tracks around the corner from their office. I think it’s pretty beautiful despite the rust and litter.



Then we headed on to where they met – Independence Blue Cross. They worked in different departments but one particular job made their paths cross…


We scoped out La Colombe, the first place they had coffee together.


It must be great to work in this part of Philly. We walked around Rittenhouse Square on this lovely evening. On nice days, Lisa and Mike would grab some coffee and hang out on the benches together. The place was packed this evening – apparently there was to be a stampede of naked bicyclists riding through soon after our session.






The fantastic seafood restaurant overlooking Rittenhouse Square, Devon, is another important landmark. When Mike told Lisa he was taking her out to lunch for the first time, she imagined a corner deli. Nope. It was Devon and he paid. She was starting to catch on that this was something special…


We ended our time on Delancey Street. Not because it holds any sentimental value but simply because it’s a beautiful Philadelphia street and you just can’t resist when you’re right there!


Thanks, Lisa and Mike! Can’t wait for next June’s wedding at Pen Ryn Mansion!

I am like a falling star who has finally found her place next to another in a lovely constellation, where we will sparkle in the heavens forever.

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Art Museum | Carly + Billy
Carly and Billy are getting married this weekend at the Bellevue.  I have good reason to believe it’s going to be a gorgeous event (and hopefully Carly’s mother, Fern, will be able to sit back and just enjoy the fruits of her labor.  We’ll see about that.). I met up with them the other week for their engagement pictures around the Art Museum.  We had a beautiful breezy, sunny day and my lovebirds couldn’t have been better!  We started with a stroll down Boathouse Row. They started dating 7 years ago in college.  They had been in the same circle of friends since freshman year but didn’t become an item til later on. Car ...

Haesook + Wayne: Engagement Session at Longwood Gardens
It’s fun when couples tell me that they’re not really big on PDA; I like a challenge. Haesook and Wayne were one such couple though you’d never believe it by looking at their pictures. They met at Penn through church, were friends for a few years, and then slowly turned that friendship into a romance.She actually didn’t believe him on the night that he proposed. He picked her up from the airport after visiting family in Korea. He had candles everywhere, pictures of the two of them, he sang to her, and then got down on one knee. Still in a state of jetlag, she thought it was all in fun! Not so.They’ll be getting married next month with a ...

Kennett Square Engagement Photographer | Longwood Gardens | Andrea + John
Here’s a story of a boy and girl who met in 6th grade at St. Norbert’s. The boy apparently told his friends that he would marry the girl. The boy and girl began dating their senior year of high school. They’ve been together 8 years now and will be getting married this May at that same grade school where they met and where he first proposed to her (more on that later).Andrea and John are delightful. They’re so easy going and so in sync with each other (what a surprise, right?). He calls her Toots (which I love) and she calls him Peanut (which he doesn’t love). Their first date was to see Big Fish and then dinner at Maggianos with a few o ...
