Montgomery County Engagement Photographer | Valley Forge National Park | Becca + Mike

Engagement

Becca and Mike are something else. Becca and I had a long phone consultation and then I got to meet both of them in person. It still didn’t prepare me for the engagement session we had at Valley Forge National Park not long after. We lucked out with some of the most golden light, great temperatures, and amazing colors of the year.

Becca and Mike met at a friend’s party four years ago. Mike recalls that Becca Facebook stalked him and messaged him before they went out on their first real date together.

A few months into dating Becca was invited to a friend’s wedding in Belize. She knew that he was a big deal even then because it’s not just anyone you take with you across the world for a wedding.

She is a petite little thing who is good at shopping (according to Mike) and he’s a big lug who is good at mowing stripes in lawns and watching the Flyers (according to Becca).

These two are snarky and playful and stupidly, utterly in love. What could be better?

Mike proposed one night while they were just sitting there watching TV.

I had such a fun time playing around with them in some of the most incredible light of the year. Then again, I think these two would have made anything look good! I can’t wait to see what they do next May for their wedding at Stokesay Castle.

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 ...

Montgomery County Couples Photographer | Valley Forge National Park | Elizabeth + Matthew
It was drizzly and traffic was bad but the colors were incredible, the location was perfect, and Elizabeth and Matthew were awesome. The last time I saw them was on a cold and rainy day last December as they said their vows in a small wedding at Philadelphia City Hall. Now, as the old married couple that they are, we romped around Valley Forge National Park for a love shoot. This was a pretty ideal location for them. Elizabeth worked at VFNP this past summer, keeping her nose to the ground looking for birds’ nests. They’re both very active and love the outdoors. They had actually just come back hiking in the Delaware Water Gap and campi ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Philadelphia Museum of Art | Kate + Kevin
This session had already been postponed once and I had already called it off on this day due to impending thunderstorms. I am soooo thankful that I kept refreshing weather.com because the evening for Kate and Kevin’s engagement session was a thing of dreams. We met at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and were given the most perfect light, clouds, and scenery. Oh, and a beautiful, happy couple.As for these two: Kate and Kevin. They’re pretty much destined to save the world. They met five years ago at a homeless shelter (Kevin runs it, Kate was volunteering). One 10 minute conversation and Kevin was smitten. He knew. They went out on two ...
