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.”

Main Line Engagement Photographer | Merion Park | Courtney + Sean
Sean’s cousin is Courtney’s best friend. Sean came back from deployment in Iraq and went out to meet them one night. That was seven years ago. They love being outdoors (the original idea for the engagement session included a kayak, no joke!), especially with their 6 year old mutt, Raleigh. They spend every weekend outside so there was no way around the fact that we needed to do their engagement session somewhere lush and beautiful.I met up with them at Merion Park in Montgomery County, right outside of Philly city limits. The evening was absolutely beautiful and these two were so easy.Check out the stunning engagement ring. The diamond ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Fairmount + Rittenhouse Square | Katie + Nate [teaser]
He’s always hot; she’s always cold but somehow someway we managed to get the perfect day for an extended engagement session for Katie and Nate. First we strolled around Fairmount and then we wandered down to the Rittenhouse Square area for some A+ engagement pictures filled with liquid courage, Christopher Walken impressions, potatoes, high fives, the most pitiful thugs you’ve ever seen, and so much laughter. You will really want to see the rest of this session!

Moorestown, New Jersey Engagement Photographer | Strawbridge Park | Courtney + Ryan
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 ...
