Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Manayunk | Rebecca & Nick

Engagement

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 getting into trouble (as JRTs will do). It seemed only fitting that we do their engagement session in Manayunk.

We met in Pretzel Park and started wandering.

Nick didn’t use many words but his expressions were priceless. I have a pretty good feeling that these two laugh. A lot.

The riverwalk behind the shops of Manayunk can be so gorgeous.

Nick popped the question this past December. Becca came home from work and Nick had assembled their little family and proposed.

I am looking forward to what they have in store this October. I can’t wait!

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Eastern State Penitentiary & Art Museum | Janene + Greg
I know of at least two people who are absolutely dying to see these images. And with good reason. This extended engagement session was a blast, a riot, a fantastically incredible good time and the pictures are delicious. Janene and Greg are rockstars. They met online (ladies take note: she winked at him) and they arranged a date. I love this part of their story and I so hope they don’t mind me telling it… They were meeting up at a restaurant and she desperately had to go to the bathroom. She texted him to scope out where it was. As soon as she showed up, he pointed her in the right direction but a little girl swooped in and got to ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Queen Village | Sheila + Sanjay
In the midst of this frozen weather, it’s nice to think back just a few short weeks ago to Sheila and Sanjay’s engagement session on an unusually mild Philly fall day. The two met at a Hanukkah party and hit it off. On their first date at Devon, Sanjay brought her a red rose though Sheila worried he wasn’t interested since he didn’t make a move at the end of the night. Lucky for us all, he was just being gentlemanly.We took pictures around their home in Queen Village along the waterfront.Sanjay says that he knew by the second date that she was the one. Her compassion was obvious and attractive. Their compatibility was undeniable.The two ...

It was soooo great to see Jackie and Chang again. It had been far too long since her sister, Katie’s, wedding. Our jaws collectively dropped as we passed by this little path at Longwood Gardens the other day. The images that we got of the two of them are fantastic; just you wait!
