Philadelphia Couples Photographer | Art Museum of Philadelphia | Carrie + Matt

Engagement

Carrie and Matt were my sweet little lovebirds of last year who came to me for their blisteringly hot Philly engagement session around Reading Terminal Market last year before they were off on their destination wedding in California. I so pleased as punch to see them again and find out how hardened they were after their first year of marriage. As it turns out, not at all. I had hoped the newest family member, Pierogie von Schnitzelhund, would be joining us but I believe he was needed for urgent foreign affairs. I feel lucky that we even got to do this session. It was originally scheduled for the Monday of Superstorm Sandy and I had to convince Carrie that this was probably not the best time to go out for pictures.

We checked out the Art Museum after the storm hit and were relieved to still see so much color. The day was really blustery and cold but we did it and it was awesome.

Please note Carrie’s beautiful shmancy shoes. They were her wedding shoes and she deserved another chance to wear them. The thing is, it was way too cold out that day for her piggies to stay in those pumps.

This is one of my favorite views of the city.

Carrie and Matt, happy anniversary! I can’t wait to see what kind of fun we can have next time. Blizzard perhaps?

[what to wear] engagement sessions
I love shooting engagement sessions and include them in all of my Philly area weddings so that the couple and I can really get to know each other. (See this for more reasons.) The inevitable question before a portrait session: what do I wear? There are no hard and fast rules, but there are some suggestions that you may want to consider before your big day in front of the camera. Here are a few…• I absolutely encourage outfit changes. So consider wearing something dressy and bringing along something more casual/everyday.Janene and Greg rocked my world when they contrasted upscale with the crumbling walls of Eastern State Penitentiary.And ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Art Museum | Ellie + Josh
I was psyched from the moment I met Ellie last year.  Her petite frame, red hair, and freckled face just beamed all over.  She’s a happy soul.  Then I learned about Josh.  Josh is a man who doesn’t give out opinions for the sake of hearing his own voice.  So when he has something to say, it’s worth a listen.  This, my friends, is the man who has requested a pig in a blanket for his wedding.  Not just any pig in a blanket.  A Guinness record-breaking pig in a blanket.  I’m a vegetarian but even I can’t wait to see this majesty. So we met up at the Philadelphia Museum of Art for a couple hours of amazing light and one of Philly’s most be ...
