Main Line engagement photographer | Haverford College | Lindi + Michael

Engagement

This engagement session, and quite frankly the relationship, is pretty pooch-centered. I mean, it’s kind of hard not to fall for a happy, floppy goldendoodle. She was just 9 pounds when they took her home but Tobi, at 50 lbs now and celebrating her 1 year birthday, is pretty full grown with all of the energy that you’d expect.

But let me back up to the beginning of Lindi + Michael.

Their story is fabulous! They met online (hooray!). Michael noted that she was attractive, charming, and, most importantly, active. Michael messaged Lindi but didn’t have much of a profile up so she (understandably) didn’t respond. Michael had the gall to call her out on this, eventually giving her his name so she could do some creep-checking. She hilariously looked him up on Athlinks, a website for athletes’ race results, was impressed with his times, and gave him a chance.

They met up for coffee for their first date. She was training for a marathon and he an Ironman. Their second date was a run through Central Park.

There were obviously undeniable sparks because they got Tobi and moved in together within 3 months.

In July of this year they went walking on the beach while vacationing with the family. Michael had plans to propose then but they were kicked off the beach for having a dog. Through much coercion, he finally convinced Lindi to go back out for another walk later when he popped the question.

I met up with this adorable, fast trio the other week on a beautiful fall day at Haverford College, near where Lindi grew up.

It was such a joy to get them (relatively) still for a little while. I can’t wait to see them again at their wedding at Pomme next March!

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Old City | Sam + Matt
Remember when we had color outside?  I miss it.  Thankfully I still had Sam and Matt’s engagement pictures from one of the last colorful days of the year.  We skipped around Old City for some cobblestone streets and classic Philly feels. The afternoon was blue and clear.  Race Street Pier is always a great starting point. They mentioned that they saw the brand new Cherry Street Pier so we checked it out and were so pleasantly surprised.  The open iron rafters and views of the water were just perfection!  Sam explained Matt’s wandering to check out the plants.  He’s big into gardening and often stops them to point out certain pla ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Old City | Alyssa + David
This!  This session shows exactly what love looks like.  Blame it on the very cold winter temps to give you reason to snuggle up extra close.  Since we were walking around Philadelphia’s Old City on a very chilly afternoon, Alyssa and David did just that.  The resultant images just exude happiness, goofiness, and, yes, lots of love. The two met at Johns Hopkins University.  Alyssa was already a student there and David was visiting as a prospective student.  Alyssa’s friend was taking him around and showing off the campus, coming upon Alyssa’s dorm room.  Admittedly, he didn’t make the best first impression – eating her food and playful ...
