New Jersey Engagement Photographer | Strawbridge Park | Kelly + Christian

Engagement

Kelly and I went back and forth over a location for her engagement session with Christian for a while. We debated the merits of so many locations and decided on Strawbridge Park in New Jersey. Had I known then what I know now, I would have just told her to show up at a trash heap and we’d still create awesomeness (hmmm… that could be cool…).

They showed up with ideas, images that she liked, a change of clothes, and absolute magic. I could not be any more in love with the engagement pictures we got that day. They are so sweet and intimate, colorful and lovely. And sheesh, these two look like they walked out of a catalog for J. Crew!!!

They met while attending the University of Scranton but didn’t start dating until 1.5 years later when they found themselves as the only singletons at a surprisingly small New Year’s Eve party. You can guess who paired up when the clock struck midnight.

I loooooove this image and that rogue strand of hair is perfection! (So there, Christian!)

They have been together for about four years now.

Christian recalls going to check out rings one day just to see how it felt. He was shocked that it didn’t freak him out and realized that Kelly was really, truly, seriously THE ONE. He bought a ring that very day and held on to it for a few months.

She says that he terrorized her about the proposal and she felt that it was never going to come. He called her out on her roofdeck one misty night under the guise of something being wrong with the grill and popped the question.

You will see a lot more of these two pretty soon – their wedding is in March at the Racquet Club of Philadelphia and I cannot wait to see what kind of magic we can make then!

A Couple Session in Florida
I've got to mention a particular couple that I photographed while I was in Tampa for the Imaging USA photography convention. Fred put me up for a few days and we spent the time reminiscing.Fred and I go waaay back. He's one of those friends that, despite the amount of time since you last saw each other, you can always just jump right back into a comfortable place. He's completely welcoming and one of the friendliest people I've ever known. I've known Fred since high school and we were pretty close til college rolled around and whisked me away to North Carolina and him to Hawaii (I guess we know who won that one!). Actually, I've known Fr ...

This is a story of high school sweethearts.  Lily and Greg were lab partners in physics class.  She took him to her junior prom, he took her to his senior prom, they went on an official first date, and I got to hang out with them on a blustery fall day 5 years later. Greg went off to Penn State for college.  He came back that fall on a surprise visit and asked her to be his girlfriend. Lily went to Villanova and they continued their relationship long distance.   Greg knew within a year of dating that she was the one he was going to marry. The gorgeous ring (blue diamonds + his grandmother’s center stone) was in his p ...
