Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Rittenhouse Square | Lauren + Chris

Engagement

Question: Who likes peacoats and is the subject of my current couple crush?
Answer: Lauren and Chris.

These two met online back in 2008 and had a first date. Fast forward to 2010 and they shared another first date. This time the dates never stopped. Their happiness with each other is infectious. They say that they laugh with each other more than anyone else. They are completely playful together and have the perfect combination of seeming like they have known each other for 100 years and still being head over heels for each other.

Chris travels for business frequently. When he comes back to their home in Baltimore they revel in domesticity: TV, chores, bike rides, restaurants…

They came up for their engagement session in Rittenhouse Square the other week. The three of us in our patriotic peacoats took over the place and I fell in love. With them.

Chris informed me that the changing colors of the fall trees is due to the sugar concentration of the leaves when the summer lights stops dropping off and giving way to autumn. The higher the glucose levels, the more red/orange the pigment. Did I get that right, Bill Nye?

Chris is notoriously bad about remembering things like birthdays and anniversaries. This often results in last minute notes of “happy birthday” on post-its. This is now a thing. They found this ring while in Miami together and both knew that it was the one. Chris ordered it soon after. Chris didn’t like the idea of a public proposal. One night after she had already fallen asleep, Chris work Lauren up with a box and a post-it asking for her hand in marriage.

I’m pretty sure that our walks around the gorgeous houses in the Rittenhouse neighborhood might be convincing them to move up to the city of brotherly love. Fingers crossed.

When you kissed my lips with my mouth so full of questions
It’s my worried mind that you quiet
Place your hands on my face
Close my eyes and say
Love is a poor man’s food
With no proper side
I could hold you in my arms
I could hold you forever
And I could hold you in my arms
I could hold you forever
~ Ray LaMontagne, “Hold You in My Arms”

Oh boy… where to begin…  Dana is a good friend of Eddie, whose wedding I photographed a few years ago.  He will be officiating for Dana and Tom’s wedding next month.  That’s how I met them. Dana and Tom met at work.  They were friends and there was always a quick and easy connection but it wasn’t until years later and a few moves and relationships that the stars aligned and they began dating. They live on Long Island with a geriatric Chihuahua/terrier mix that Dana adopted just a few years ago.  Tudas Priest was supposed to join us but Dana thought reconsidered at the last minute, thinking that it might be too much for the seni ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Old City + FDR Park | Elise + Eddie
Eddie is the publisher of Philly Current Magazine and the graphic designer head honcho at Loose Leaf Concepts who makes things pretty.  He might be a familiar face if you recall Lisa + Jeff’s Ritz Carlton fusion wedding (Eddie, Lisa’s brother, was her man of honor). Elise is a child life specialist at CHOP who gives little people better lives. Individually they’re pretty great.  When they met at a Philadelphia-based Canada Day party a few years ago, the universe did a happy dance (to Oh, Canada).  This was a great event because much happiness, dancing (so much dancing), and more Catholic/Jewish fusion was on the horizon. So I met up ...

NYC Engagement Photographer | Manhattan | Kat + Dan
3 years ago, Dan showed up to his first date with Kat with a Barnes & Noble bag and four books.  He had a dimple and bright blue eyes.  Kat, an English major and writer, was done for. They will be getting married at Aldie Mansion this December but wanted their engagement session in the place they call home – Manhattan.  They traverse the area for comedy shows, restaurants, movies, and so had a million ideas for where their engagement session should take us. We began in Greenwich Village, taking advantage of cobblestone charm and a beautiful day. We strolled through Washington Square Park where I learned that Kat and D ...
