Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Old City + Fairmount | Anna + Andrew

Engagement

I would write a full blog post about this couple if I knew Anna weren’t on the edge of her seat and probably overloading her internet at work by refreshing the browser on Lindsay Docherty Photography.

If I had more time you’d learn things about Anna and Andrew like how they met in high school (my alma mater, Lower Merion). You’d learn that they were friends for years before they were both single and she invited him to a formal at her college and he drove 6 hours in a blizzard to be there for her.

But there’s just no time for that. Here are some pictures from their amaaaaaazing extended engagement session that started at Elfreth’s Alley in Old City so we could get a bit of wintery holiday flair.

They clean up pretty good, don’t they?

If I had more time you’d learn that she (and just about everyone else) calls Andrew by his last name.  And that he never gets cold.

But she does.

If I had more time I’d tell you how they seem completely smitten with each other. Like, puppy, happily, stupidly in love.

If I had more time I’d tell you about how we went over to Fairmount for location #2 but they showed up a little bit behind me due to a flat tire. Regardless, they collected themselves, changed into something more comfortable, and introduced me to their fabulous puppies, Seamus and Jackson.

If I had more time I’d tell you about how he visited her in Florence while she was studying abroad and it was there that he realized she was the one.

If I had more time I’d tell you about how she knew the moment she saw him as she walked down the stairs into a friend’s basement and he was in cargo pants.

If I had more time I’d tell you about how he proposed to her on a trip back to Florence at “their spot” at the Ponte Vecchio.

Unfortunately I don’t have enough time to do a write-up for them so you’ll just have to wait until you see them around this time next year after their December wedding at the Union League. Til then!

“We’re all a little weird. And life is weird. And when we find someone
whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into
mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love.”

She was there with a bunch of girlfriends to blow off steam and he was there went to celebrate his friends’ MCAT completion. They flirted during that first encounter and met up the next evening to watch the fountain show at the Bellagio. They exchanged numbers and that was that.Until Mike called.

Friends referred to him as ‘Vegas Mike’. One ...

Chester County Engagement Photographer | Longwood Gardens | Kelsie + Devin
I feel pretty important that these two homebodies ventured out of their house to come out for an engagement session with me.  We took a stroll around the beautiful grounds of Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA. They spend most of their free time on home projects for their fixer upper in Perkasie, PA.  I’m completely impressed that Devin has taken care of plumbing, electrical, flooring, and painting everything (then again, I haven’t seen the place so there’s that).  He now has an arsenal of tools and just figures it out when there’s an issue. Despite being a self-proclaimed homebody, Kelsie is outgoing and peppy.  She has a ...
