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!

I’ve known Courtney for years and years. We went to grade school together. I remember going over to her house and getting amped up to go to the dinky St. Denis dance where all of the cool kids went. This has nothing to do with why I’m writing about Courtney today. When I came back from San Francisco Courtney emailed me to welcome me back to the area and said, “I want to get engaged just to get some of my own LDP originals for myself!!” Fast forward to this June when I get a new email from Courtney telling me that she got engaged that weekend and it was time for her to get those LDP wedding pics!Courtney and Ryan have been dating for about ...

Engagement Session Photography in Philadelphia: Clare + Brian
Some people dread photography sessions. They worry they’re going to be making a really dumb face or that it’s going to be an excruciating experience with a lot of “turn your head just so and hold it for the next 30 minutes” or they’re just not too keen on having a camera pointed directly at them for an evening. I don’t know Brian’s reasoning but he was one of those people; he was completely nervous. What’s funny is that this group of people doesn’t take bad pictures. In fact, I would even say that this session would be in my top 5 of all time. Yeah, seriously. We didn’t hit up every Philadelphia attraction known to man, we didn’t go in ...
