Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Rittenhouse Square | Maggie + Adam

Engagement

Maggie and Adam are fabulous. We spent an afternoon around Rittenhouse Square basking in the fall colors and just indulging in a lot of fun! Maggie is hilarious. Not only can she slide gracefully down stair railings, the ways she looks at Adam is utter perfection. She has so many playful and loving expressions and I love them all. You’ll see in some of the pictures from the engagement session. And Adam is the self-proclaimed groomzilla (he’s hardly a ‘zilla, in my humble opinion). She’s working on her MBA and he’s taken the lead on a lot of the wedding planning process.

The two have dealt with a lot of long distance dating. She moved around a lot and somehow they ended up as roommates in LA during a 6 month program there. They shared some mutual friends from Penn State and things moved from there.

Check out what we got!

The area around Rittenhouse Square is so gorgeous. I am in love with the cobblestone streets, brightly colored doors, brick, old streetlights, ivy, and all of those little unmistakable ‘Historic Philadelphia’ elements. They introduced me to a perfect street for pictures just a few blocks away.

Don’t worry – you’ll see more of them soon enough! I can’t wait for their New Year’s Eve wedding at the Radisson Warwick (not far from our engagement session). I have a feeling it’ll be spectacular! Love you both!

Wilmington Engagement Photographer | Brandywine Creek State Park | Michelle + Chris
This Delaware engagement session at Brandywine Creek State Park couldn’t have been any better.  The fall day was incredible- there wasn’t a single cloud in the sky and the temperature was unusually warm and pleasant for fall.  It was my first meeting with Michelle and Chris.  I hate to use “cute” when not speaking of puppies and babies but, man, these two topped the adorable charts. They met while attending the University of Delaware.  Interestingly, they had both attended the same high school (and were both on the track and field team) but never ran into one another.  Chris heard that there were other people from his alma mater at UD ...

Philadelphia Proposal Photographer | Philadelphia Art Museum | Kath + Brian
Brian and I had been exchanging emails and ideas for a few weeks.  The plan was to propose to his wonderful girlfriend, Kath on a day filled with delightful surprises. It was the first truly chilly day of the year.  Earlier they had gone on a helicopter ride over the city (disguised as a birthday gift to him).  They then stopped at Bishop’s Collar in Fairmount near where Kath used to live.  Brian was texting me updates so I could watch for their arrival. During the proposal, groomsmen from a wedding burst in with cheers and watching from afar.  Some tears and lots of happiness and there was a definite YES! Brian had asked me ...

Main Line Engagement Photographer | Baldwin School | Deirdre + Pete
Deirdre and Pete met while they were in college at Gettysburg.  They shared a few classes together and were both involved in Greek life.  There was a slight flirtation but that was that. They both graduated and moved on, reconnecting five years later over Facebook and chatting it up. One year after that Deirdre was coming to town for the Philadelphia Rock n Roll half marathon and asked Pete if he was around for a drink afterwards.  Suffice it to say, he was. The two now live at the Baldwin School, a private pre-K to 12 school for girls on the Main Line.  Pete is a teacher there and lives in one of the residences on campus ...
