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

Chester County Engagement Photographer | Longwood Gardens | Drea + Steve
Philadelphia sports fans are famous (okay, notorious) for being particularly crazy and fanatical.  I’ve had my Flyers fans and Eagles fans and Phillies fans but Drea and Steve were my first Union fans.  In fact, they owe their relationship to the soccer team. The Philadelphia Union cheering section, the Sons of Ben, had an away game in Montreal 3 years ago.  Steve went with a group of friends and Drea went solo (some friends backed out last minute).  It was on the bus back that Steve and his rowdy friends chatted up Drea.  They were shot down when they invited her out that night. 4 months later at a Union charity event, Ste ...

Chester County Engagement Photographer | Longwood Gardens | Katie + Dave
Four years ago Katie and Dave met at a mutual friend’s dinner party. Truth be told, Dave wasn’t too smooth. They parted ways and reconnected a few years later on Facebook when he wished her a happy birthday and tried his luck again. This time it stuck. They met up for dinner at the same place of their first meeting and then wandered around the library browsing old books for sale for a dollar.I’m sure you can guess that things went well because I met up with them at Longwood Gardens for their engagement session on a chilly day this March during Orchid Extravaganza. They both live in Michigan now but Katie grew up right around the corner a ...
