Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | West Fairmount Park | Candace + Scott

Engagement

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 pretty hilarious together. Apparently impromptu dance parties are somewhat common.

Scott proposed to Candace on a hike along the ocean in Rhode Island. He had been picking on her for walking like a grandmother. He popped the question and she never saw it coming.

They’ll be back in town this September for what is sure to be a gorgeous wedding at the Radisson Warwick Hotel in Philadelphia. (I’m kinda hoping Candace changes into sweats for the reception so they can get their dance on!)

Pennsylvania Engagement Photographer | West Chester | Gabi + Kristopher
Sometimes I just get really lucky with couples. This was the case with Gabi and Kristopher. I met them at a bridal show at Aldie Mansion a while back. We hit it off but pricing was an issue and we parted ways. I got an email a few months ago that they had booked with another photographer who had since gotten pregnant and was due very near their date. I was thrilled that I was still available and this time we made things legit.While many couples wait for warmer weather for their engagement sessions, Gabi and Kristopher opted for a snowy day at the park near their house in West Chester. My fingers were frosty but I am IN LOVE with what we ...

Main Line Engagement Photographer | Ridley Creek State Park | Christina + Jason
I think I might have found a new favorite location for engagement pictures.  On second thought, it’s entirely possible that I loved my session with Christina and Jason because of them.  And Tessa. We went to Ridley Creek State Park on an exceptionally gorgeous afternoon with their energetic German Shorthair Pointer (apologies for the redundancy there), Tessa.  She is 3 years old, beautiful, and found the entire situation UN-FREAKING-BELIEVEABLE!!! Jason had gotten the dog to help him pick up chicks.  Christina and Jason started dating the very next week.  Kudos, Tess! The two met tailgating (Christina and Jason, not Tess ...
