Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Society Hill |Erika + Chip

Engagement

It was the perfect evening to spend around Society Hill, Erika and Chip’s old stomping grounds from when they first met.  If you’re an early morning news watcher (CBS3), you’ll certainly recognize the beautiful and spunky Erika von Tiehl.  I spent time with her and her dapper beau, Chip, as we wandered took advantage of some great light, happy places, and loving laughter.

We started our fun at Headhouse Square before checking out Twisted Tail, one of their favorite bars.  The affection between the two was palpable.  On their second date, Chip made Erika dinner at his place.  He prepared the steak and she made apple pie.  He moved the coffee table aside after dinner so they could dance together.

It was on their first date at Rittenhouse’s Parc that he knew he would marry her.  He grins as he says the words.

They have crazy schedules since she’s out of the house by 2:30am for the show and he works normal human hours.  They have found a way to make it work, even if it means naps or early nights for Erika.  They have Sophie, a Cavalier spaniel, to keep them company in the off hours.

He is from Charlotte, NC (and a Wolfpack fan!) and she is a California girl.  They travel a lot; St. Johns is their favorite locale.  It was on a trip last month to Charleston, SC that Chip popped the question.

The two are so obviously happy together.  There is such easy warmth and kindness between them.

There is no date or location set for the wedding yet but I can’t wait to hear what else is in store for these two.  It was so wonderful being around them!

Brittany + Justin engagement session in Delaware
So I see this couple show up on motorcycles and think to myself, “I bet they’d be fun but no way that’s my couple. Who wants to be worried about helmet hair for their engagement session?” I text Brittany to get her ETA and receive, “We are here! By the bikes :)”. Awesome! And not a single trace of helmet head.We met at Brecknock Park in Camden, Delaware and the session pretty much rocked. As well as defending her against spiders, Justin can put Brittany in fits of laughter. He’s a goofball and they play off of each other so well.We had the kind of light that you get in winter. The kind that makes everything crisp and peach-colored. M ...
