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.

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | West Fairmount Park | Candace + Scott
I feel like I got quite the treat the other week when Candace showed up in something other than sweatpants to her engagement session with Scott in West Fairmount Park. From what I’m told, she practically lives in them. Rightfully so. Their schedules are sooo busy – her with dental school and him with doctor’s hours. Nights involve coming home, getting take out, watching Law & Order, and falling asleep on the sofa together.I was so glad that they were able to make time to come to Philly from Boston for our session. It was a bit chilly but they both looked absolutely fantastic and the park was incredibly lush and all ours!They’re prett ...

They chatted and had arranged a date by the next week.I entered the picture a few months ago when they contacted me about photographing their wedding coming up this June at Castle Yacht Club in New Jersey. I was excited to meet them in person for their engagement session around the Philly Art Museum just the other week. Spring was in full bloom and I was psyched to make use of it. We had perfect puffy clouds, lots of light, color everywhere, and a touch of wind for good measure.We made ...

New York Engagement Photographer | Prospect Park | Vanessa + Kenny
Vanessa and Kenny’s relationship goes waaaay back, like high school back.  And then it stops.  And then it starts again.  But before I get into that, let me set the scene: we got our schedules in sync to photograph their engagement session right around the corner from their home in Brooklyn not long before their wedding.  There were ideas swirling around about where we should go and what we should do but we decided to keep it simple and wander around Prospect Park. These two are fantastic together.  If there were any jitters of being in front of the camera, my lens certainly didn’t see them.  They felt like old friends who invited me f ...
