Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Art Museum | Carly + Billy

Engagement

Carly and Billy are getting married this weekend at the Bellevue.  I have good reason to believe it’s going to be a gorgeous event (and hopefully Carly’s mother, Fern, will be able to sit back and just enjoy the fruits of her labor.  We’ll see about that.).

I met up with them the other week for their engagement pictures around the Art Museum.  We had a beautiful breezy, sunny day and my lovebirds couldn’t have been better!  We started with a stroll down Boathouse Row.

They started dating 7 years ago in college.  They had been in the same circle of friends since freshman year but didn’t become an item til later on.

Carly is the impulsive one.  She knew right away that Billy was the one.

She moved to New York to be with him after finishing up her masters.

It was at her parents’ lake house that Billy popped the question.  Carly had no idea it was coming.  Like many nights there, they wandered out to the dock to share some wine and take in the day.  Family back at the house watched and snapped pictures from afar as he got down on one knee.

I’m so looking forward to seeing them soon for their fusion wedding!  It’s going to be fabulous!

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Rittenhouse Square | Anne + David
I literally met Anne and David 2 days before their wedding for their engagement session. They live in New York but chose Philly because it was where they first met. Dave’s parents were also married in Philly almost 40 years ago. It was great to be able to spend that time with them before the wedding day. I learned that they met while at Jefferson Hospital by having lots of mutual friends. There’s a debate over the actual first date but they’ve been together about 3 years, adventuring all over the world. Dave proposed to Anne at the summit of a mountain in Japan after a 10 mile hike and they have an adorable puppy named Jake.We got toget ...

Main Line engagement photographer | Haverford College | Lindi + Michael
This engagement session, and quite frankly the relationship, is pretty pooch-centered. I mean, it’s kind of hard not to fall for a happy, floppy goldendoodle. She was just 9 pounds when they took her home but Tobi, at 50 lbs now and celebrating her 1 year birthday, is pretty full grown with all of the energy that you’d expect.But let me back up to the beginning of Lindi + Michael.Their story is fabulous! They met online (hooray!). Michael noted that she was attractive, charming, and, most importantly, active. Michael messaged Lindi but didn’t have much of a profile up so she (understandably) didn’t respond. Michael had the gall to call ...
