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

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Italian Market | Christina + Chris
Not everyone can just hop down a block for the most delicious fresh produce, meats, cheeses, and baked goods Philadelphia has to offer.  The Italian Market is an amazing place.  Christina and Chris live right there and take advantage of their magical little neighborhood all the time.  It seemed fitting that we use it for the backdrop to their engagement session. They knew early on that they were it for each other.  Chris, a basketball fan(atic), is friends with Christina’s sister from work.  He says he played the slow game, incorporating the four corners offense to get the defense (Christina) come to him.  Whatever the tactic, it obvi ...
