Philadelphia engagement photographer | Rittenhouse Square | Stevie + Brandon

Engagement

I know you’re all wanting to see Stevie and Brandon’s wedding pictures but you’re just going to have to wait.  First comes the engagement pictures, taken around Rittenhouse Square just a few days before the big event.

Brandon mostly plays it cool while Stevie gleams with exuberance.  And it’s completely contagious.

They met after a show at the Khyber though there is debate over how it all went down.  He attempted a bad pickup line and she called him out on it.  Stevie, a fashion designer working at Urban Outfitters, found out that he was an art student and was smitten.

Regardless, they began seeing each other and realized that Stevie had even moved in and wasn’t going anywhere.

They share three cats of varying intelligence, watch TV, make animal noises at each other, and go on road trips.

Brandon would frequently propose to her in jest,  She always asked where the ring was.  One day he asked her to marry him and backed it up with a cupcake and a ring.  Stevie cried uncontrollably.  It was yes.

I’ve never met a more cuddly snugglepuss than Geoff.  While Jackie sometimes has to remind him about personal space, the bond they have is absolutely adorable.  They go on a date night every Friday night.  Every couple talks about doing such a thing but these two actually do it!  Theater, hikes, restaurants… I met them not far from their home in Newtown Square at Okehocking Preserve where they wander the gorgeous landscape and visit their favorite old, stone building. They met online two years ago and went on their first date at Farmicia.  He could tell that there was something special from that first day. She feels ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Philadelphia Art Museum | Stacy + Joe
I have been on the edge of my seat to show you these pictures for ages. A computer malfunction kept me away from these beloved files for far too long! Stacy is bright and smiley and Joe is the grounded one. They met at a bar about 9 years ago in college (just like in the fairy tales). They were dating for a year and she didn’t even know his real first name since he went by his last name to everyone. This became a little awkward when she called his house and realized he was one of 10.Needless to say, this was sorted out and Stacy and Joe will be getting married next month in two separate weddings, one here in Philly and another in Stacy’s ...

Engagement Session Photography at Valley Forge National Park: Lindsay + Jordan
So you know that great couple who were high school sweethearts, incredibly friendly, loving, and attractive? The kind that have it so together that they couldn’t even make a WB teen sitcom about them? Yeah, that’s Lindsay and Jordan. They’ve been together 7-8 years (it’s debatable) and have seen each other through long distances and ups and downs. Earlier this year she had a ring waiting for her at the end of a scavenger hunt all around town. Love it!They’re now in Austin, Texas, planning a fall wedding at Tyler Arboretum from afar. I was able to grab them for a few hours on a trip out here. We had a spectacular engagement session at V ...
