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!

Collette + Chris engagement session around the Philadelphia Art Museum
Collette’s favorite color is green so you already know she’s good people. Chris smiles when he looks at Collette. They met back in 2005 while he was a network guy and she worked at the systems desk. He would bring Doritos to work, not because he particularly liked Doritos, but because Collette would come around and eat them. Their wedding colors will be based around 3 leaves she picked up during one of their first outings together. They are quirky and awesome and I love them.We met on a chilly and windy day in February to wander around the Philadelphia Art Museum area for their e-session. Can I tell you how much I love what they wore? ...

Jamie and Jeffrey are winos in the best possible sense of the word.  Together they share an affection for wine that has been a common thread in their relationship.  Of course that meant that there was no where else but a winery for their engagement session.  They found the perfect place at the picturesque Galer Estate Vineyard & Winery in Kennett Square. Jamie and Jeffrey are both committed to working on self-betterment.  They met at a Landmark Forum course on communicating. The romance didn’t begin until a year later as Jeffrey had just moved back from California. I forgot to ask about her apparently troubled eyes ...
