Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Chestnut Hill | Stephanie + Nick

Engagement

Stephanie and Nick’s courtship has been less than traditional. The meeting, first kiss, etc. The second time they went out, he picked on her like a schoolboy (boys only do that to girls they really like, by the way). The day he proposed, Nick picked a fight with Stephanie to throw her off – it was later that evening when they were in the car outside of a restaurant where they were to be greeted by friends that he popped the question. She was so blindsided that she was speechless (she obviously said yes). Time from proposal to wedding is 5 months and yes, it can be done. They’ll be getting married at the gorgeous Glen Foerd Mansion this October.

We met in Chestnut Hill to wander around for their engagement session.

We choose those we like; with those we love, we have no say in the matter.

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Wissahickon Park | Amanda + Matt
Perhaps they can’t be trusted to write their own vows but Amanda and Matt are the kind of couple I want around all the time.  This isn’t about the pictures (though, yes, they’re both pretty damn hot) but just because they’re fun people and I feel that I could come up with some kind of tough mudder obstacle course to get them back for our engagement session.  (I kid, I kid.) I had a really great time sweating through the woods in Wissahickon Park near Valley Green Inn.  This was a special place for them – when they were both in law school at Villanova and living in Roxborough this is the place they’d come to take a break from the stress ...

Julia + Matt’s Engagement Session
Do you have a zombie contingency plan? No? You'd better get on that asap. Matt and Julia do and they're awesome (and I'm not just saying that to secure a spot for the impending zombie apocalypse).These zombie-hating lovebirds met at the University of Delaware. He played rugby for the men's team; she played rugby for the women's team. He hollered at her from the sidelines at games and she fell for him. They are two utterly hilarious people. Matt is good at being fussy and cracking jokes and Julia is good at rolling her eyes at Matt. They play off of each other so well. They're partners in crime. They laugh. A lot. And it's magical. ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Manayunk | Rebecca & Nick
In their group of friends from Penn State, Becca and Nick were the only ones not from Philly (she’s from Harrisburg and he’s from central New Jersey). This was obviously bound to happen. Their first date was at a diner that only had a half booth. This means that they sat side by side facing a wall. They ordered food and she chowed down on a burger but he was too nervous to eat. This October will mark their 6 years together and will also bring us together to celebrate their wedding at the DoubleTree in Philadelphia.They now live in Manayunk together with a cat who snorts but can’t purr and a Jack Russell/Chihuahua mix who has a knack for ...
