Media, PA Engagement Photographer | Ridley Creek State Park | Dana + Tom

Engagement

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 senior pup.

Dana has a stellar design sense but she is super indecisive.  I can’t keep track of how many times we changed the date and location of the engagement session.  That being said, I cannot wait to see what she creates for the wedding!

There is so much more I meant to ask the two but conversation was constant and we wound up talking about every random topic under the sun: asparagus, vaping, nose blowing, cereal, the Great Depression, the sound cats make…

So as much as I would love to tell you more about this totally goofy pair, you’ll just have to make do with their engagement pictures from our time at gorgeous Ridley Creek State Park.

And of course stay tuned for their winter wedding at Pomme next month!

I’m your Mister, you my Misses with hugs and kisses
Valentine cards and birthday wishes, please
We on another level of planning, of understanding
The bond between man and woman, and child
The highest elevation, cause we above
All that romance crap, just show your love

A Couple Session in Florida
I've got to mention a particular couple that I photographed while I was in Tampa for the Imaging USA photography convention. Fred put me up for a few days and we spent the time reminiscing.Fred and I go waaay back. He's one of those friends that, despite the amount of time since you last saw each other, you can always just jump right back into a comfortable place. He's completely welcoming and one of the friendliest people I've ever known. I've known Fred since high school and we were pretty close til college rolled around and whisked me away to North Carolina and him to Hawaii (I guess we know who won that one!). Actually, I've known Fr ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Old City | Kate + Dakota
I’m guessing Dakota won’t appreciate this but… Kate and Dakota’s cuteness is out of control!  They are so flipping adorable together.  I was warned that Dakota isn't great in front of the camera but I think Kate was just trying to keep my expectations super low so that they could blow them out of the water.  Total naturals, these two! The two dated in eighth grade and he broke her heart (he wanted to hang out with his guys instead of having a girlfriend). This is a woman who knows what she wants.  Kate continued to pursue him in high school.  She hung around with him and his friends until he asked her out again.  Their first dat ...

Sara + Rob: Engagement Session in New Jersey
It's okay, you can say it… Holy s#!t, those colors are incredible! Yep, late October will get you the most amazing colors around here. (Sorry, California, the Northeast totally has you beat when it comes to the fall.)Sara, Rob, Boz and I met up for this awesome engagement session at Smithville Park in Eastamption, New Jersey, one of my new favorite places to photograph. It was a bit muggy but everything else was pretty much perfect. The overcast skies gave off great diffused light that made the colors pop. And the grounds have a river, an old mansion, trails, barns, bricks, crawling ivy, peeling paint, crumbling buildings… just to die f ...
