Montgomery County Engagement Photographer | Jennifer + Mel

Engagement

Jennifer and Mel live in a magical place. They have wild horses in their backyard. I arrived and was ushered outside to see about a dozen of them running past. You could hear their hooves. They also house a vocal cat, two hairy guinea pigs, and something about a well-loved Quesadilla.

I knew I wanted to be a part of their lives/wedding from my first interaction with Jenn and I was so excited to meet her Mel.

The two met at massage therapy school years ago. Upon seeing Mel the very first time, Jenn knew she was a big deal – enough to make her speechless.

I finally met them in person for their engagement session at their new home. They were as playful and fabulous as I had hoped. So much laughter!

Jenn proposed to Mel in late 2011. She gave her a ring with black and white diamonds that coded “143” (I Love You). As Jenn tells it, her side of the proposal was all happy waterworks and a blubbering mess. After Mel got a ring for Jenn, she waited for the perfect time to pop the question back. She thought a trip to New Hope might make for the right romantic opportunity but it just wasn’t quite there. On the way back home, she suggested stopping by the place where they met (where their old massage school used to be). It was there where Mel gave Jenn butterflies for a second time.

They spend a lot of time in their kitchen together – cooking, drinking wine, laughing, and just enjoying each other.  They make an incredible family.

Did I mention that they’re utterly ridiculous? That’s an Escalade, ladies and gentlemen. Livin large!

I had such a great time getting to know these two and being brought in to their wonderful world. I can’t wait to photograph them again at their wedding at the Morris House Hotel next year!

Engagement Session Photography at Valley Forge National Park: Lindsay + Jordan
So you know that great couple who were high school sweethearts, incredibly friendly, loving, and attractive? The kind that have it so together that they couldn’t even make a WB teen sitcom about them? Yeah, that’s Lindsay and Jordan. They’ve been together 7-8 years (it’s debatable) and have seen each other through long distances and ups and downs. Earlier this year she had a ring waiting for her at the end of a scavenger hunt all around town. Love it!They’re now in Austin, Texas, planning a fall wedding at Tyler Arboretum from afar. I was able to grab them for a few hours on a trip out here. We had a spectacular engagement session at V ...

Delaware County Engagement Photographer | Ridley Creek State Park | Hannah + Travis
Hannah and Travis met about four years ago where she was a bartender and he was “security”. The first time they talked she noted that he looked familiar. He responded, “no” and walked away. You see, Travis gets nervous around pretty girls. A few days later he realized that she was right and that they actually went to the same small high school. It took about a month later before he got the nerve to talk to her again.Needless to say, they worked it out. They booked a few months ago but I met them the first time at their engagement session at Ridley Creek State Park in Media, PA. They brought the two new family members, Lana and Jack – ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Old City | Sarah + Ryan
These two beautiful people graced me for an evening of tromping all overt Old City the other day.  They’re new in town, having moved from Florida in May. Ryan’s only request was water so we met at Race Street Pier to begin the pictures.  They were naturals from the first second. The two met at a country bar in Orlando two years ago.  Ryan walked in looking preppy as can be with rolled red pants, a linen shirt, and boat shoes.  Sarah just had to send a picture of this guy to her friends via Snapchat.  He caught her doing it and the rest is history! They were at DisneyWorld in January.  He managed a romantic private night ...
