Main Line Engagement Photographer | Bryn Mawr |Laura + Marc


I had the immense pleasure of hanging out with one perfectly quirky couple one evening in Bryn Mawr.  They are first shy and apprehensive (there’s a person with a camera right there) but after some cajoling, dandelions, and popcorn, there was plenty to say.  I present to you… Laura and Marc!


These two had the best online dating luck ever.  They were each others’ first date.  He had been online for a while but never contacted anyone; she was on for a week and a half and responded to a particularly hilarious story Marc had put up about a 3am exercise incident.  Their first date was dinner and a movie, after which they sat and talked for 7 more hours.  (What chemistry?)

That was 2.5 years and many, many movies ago.  That is one of their main hobbies together.  Her faves are campy horror flicks and he likes just about anything.  She has every ticket stub since she was 12 and he guesses he’s seen upwards to 3000.


Marc proposed in front of a theater last year where he had told her they were going to a showing with friends.  He popped the question and met up with friends to celebrate.


It made perfect sense that we’d take over the charming Bryn Mawr Film Institute for our shoot.

They complement each other in so many ways and find commonality in a million different ways.  It sounds trite but they just don’t get sick of each other.  Evenings are spent with their two very fat cats, binge watching tv shows and movies or playing board games like Settlers of Catan, Pandemic, and RISK.  In costume!  It still eludes me why I didn’t get to see this at their engagement session (ahem, take note for the wedding, please).

I did get a brief glimpse of their comic book/super hero alteregos towards the end of the evening.  Who can resist Captain America?


It was so much fun and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for their wedding next April!


James Barnes: Come on, man! It’s my last night. Gotta get you cleaned up.
Steve Rogers: Why? Where are we going?
James Barnes: The future.

Eric and Elise are getting married today surrounded by a group of 50 of their nearest and dearest somewhere in Philadelphia.  I’m not telling you where because I don’t want you to crash their party (it’s one of my absolute favorite venues in the city). Let’s go back two years ago when they first met.  Elise had just moved to the city from Chicago and went out with friends and friends of friends.  Eric was there too and they hit it off. They kept the spark going through easy conversation at breakfast dates.  She lived in Fairmount, he in Northern Liberties.  They had spent many a lovely evening per ...
Jason + Erin: Proposal in Rittenhouse Square
Jason called me up the other week. He had hatched a plan with the help of Lori from Keystone Concierge. The plan was to propose to his longtime girlfriend, Erin, in Rittenhouse Square one Saturday morning. They were going to walk through the park on the way to "get something to eat at Parc". And then they'd stop and notice how someone had set up a lovely picnic. And then they'd notice the musician strumming away right beside it (their very own minstrel, if you will). And then Erin would notice Jason on one knee with a ring.That's how it went down and it was awesome. And I got to be a part of it. I photographed the whole thing from afa ...

Media, PA Engagement Photographer | Ridley Creek State Park | Dana + Tom
Oh boy… where to begin…  Dana is a good friend of Eddie, whose wedding I photographed a few years ago.  He will be officiating for Dana and Tom’s wedding next month.  That’s how I met them. Dana and Tom met at work.  They were friends and there was always a quick and easy connection but it wasn’t until years later and a few moves and relationships that the stars aligned and they began dating. They live on Long Island with a geriatric Chihuahua/terrier mix that Dana adopted just a few years ago.  Tudas Priest was supposed to join us but Dana thought reconsidered at the last minute, thinking that it might be too much for the seni ...
