Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Logan Square | Elise + Eric

Engagement

Eric and Elise are getting married today surrounded by a group of 50 of their nearest and dearest somewhere in Philadelphia.  I’m not telling you where because I don’t want you to crash their party (it’s one of my absolute favorite venues in the city).

Let’s go back two years ago when they first met.  Elise had just moved to the city from Chicago and went out with friends and friends of friends.  Eric was there too and they hit it off.

They kept the spark going through easy conversation at breakfast dates. 

She lived in Fairmount, he in Northern Liberties.  They had spent many a lovely evening perusing the area around Logan Square so it seemed right that they start there for their engagement session.

They had talked about marriage and he had visited her family (the first time involving a harrowing 25 hour train ride in a snow storm) and asked her father for his permission.  She knew the proposal had to be coming eventually because Dad returned and immediately said, “so you and Eric are talking about marriage, huh?”  /facepalm/

That day did arrive one year and one day after they first met.  It was supposed to be a weekend hiking in Rickett’s Glen but the forecast was rain.  Eric switched things up with a trip to Cape May.  There were lovely meals, walks, and a visit to the top of a lighthouse leading up to the final moment on a bench together when he popped the question with his late grandmother’s diamond ring.

Now they’re two peas in a pod laughing about their wacky trio of cats and attentively watching Criminal Minds.

I can’t wait to celebrate with these two in just a few hours!!!

Katie + Justin’s engagement session
Ice cream-loving Katie met and fell in love with Justin, a guy from Tennessee with a southern drawl and the patience to wander around New York City all day before popping the question in front of the huge Christmas tree this past winter (he was almost forced to do it earlier at NBC Studios but that's another story altogether). They don't recall their first date or when this relationship became real. They met at school in Tennessee (she's from Delaware) and their friendship eventually morphed into something more.We all met up the other week at Battery Park in New Castle, Delaware for their e-session. This was a fantastic location with trees ...

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 ...
