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

[the value of] an Engagement Session
I love, love, love shooting e-sessions. A lot of people have heard me go on and on about this before, but I really mean it – engagement pictures are so worthwhile for many reasons…1) The connection. Wedding days are busy and your photographer will be right there throughout the entire thing. They will be your shadow and it's a good idea to get to know them so that you have one less stress on your day. (A good photographer will be a helpful and calming element on your wedding day.) So are you comfortable with this person? Do you even like this person? If you get bad vibes during the engagement session, you can act on it before the big da ...

Philadelphia Proposal Photographer | Philadelphia Art Museum | Kath + Brian
Brian and I had been exchanging emails and ideas for a few weeks.  The plan was to propose to his wonderful girlfriend, Kath on a day filled with delightful surprises. It was the first truly chilly day of the year.  Earlier they had gone on a helicopter ride over the city (disguised as a birthday gift to him).  They then stopped at Bishop’s Collar in Fairmount near where Kath used to live.  Brian was texting me updates so I could watch for their arrival. During the proposal, groomsmen from a wedding burst in with cheers and watching from afar.  Some tears and lots of happiness and there was a definite YES! Brian had asked me ...
