Michelle + Alastair: Engagement Session at 30th Street Station

Engagement

30th Street Station in Philly is just gorgeous. I absolutely adore the architecture and it’s just neat to photograph at a train station.

Michelle and Alastair found me through some strange connections (my friend Martha who lives in Seattle who I met at photography school in Montana referred me to Michelle and Alastair who live in San Francisco but met Martha and her husband, Jason, in Ithaca). Despite their wedding being in New York, Michelle and Alastair happened to be in Philadelphia for Michelle’s bridal shower. Need a flow chart? I do.

Regardless… I met with the adorable Michelle and Alastair for a lovely (albeit rainy) engagement session at 30th Street Station.


Let me just tell you that these two couldn’t keep their eyes off of each other. They were all grins and giggles. Seriously. They had each other smiling and laughing throughout the whole shoot.




It was just awesome that they were so wrapped up in each other. That’s exactly the kind of shooting I love to do – an amazing couple who are just with each other and I happen to be there with a camera. Perfection.

We took a stroll outside after a slight delay indoors. It was overcast and slightly drizzly, but the weather wasn’t going to get these lovebirds down.



I love the columns around the building. There are so many cool places to shoot.



We wandered back inside and up to the tracks. Yeah… what photographer?



And this was my absolute favorite shot of the day. It feels like it came right out of 1940s Europe.


Thanks so much, you two. I can’t wait for the Ithaca wedding in just a couple short months! See you soon!

I would write a full blog post about this couple if I knew Anna weren’t on the edge of her seat and probably overloading her internet at work by refreshing the browser on Lindsay Docherty Photography.If I had more time you’d learn things about Anna and Andrew like how they met in high school (my alma mater, Lower Merion). You’d learn that they were friends for years before they were both single and she invited him to a formal at her college and he drove 6 hours in a blizzard to be there for her.But there’s just no time for that. Here are some pictures from their amaaaaaazing extended engagement session that started at Elfreth’s Alley in Old ...

Main Line Engagement Photographer | Bryn Mawr, PA | Colleen + Karl
I really don’t think I could have asked for a better day/place/couple for an engagement session. I met Colleen and Karl on one of the most beautiful days of the year when the autumn colors were just screaming off of the trees and the temperature was ideal. On top of that, Colleen and Karl were perfectly playful, loving, and photogenic. We shot at and near their beautiful house in Bryn Mawr on the Main Line. The icing on the cake was their 6 month old Greater Swiss Mountain Dog, Samson.We played at the house for a while with Samson. We took a tiny break to change clothes so that we could wander around the gorgeous neighborhood. I loved t ...
