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!)

Jason + Erin: Proposal in Rittenhouse Square
Jason called me up the other week. He had hatched a plan with the help of Lori from Keystone Concierge. The plan was to propose to his longtime girlfriend, Erin, in Rittenhouse Square one Saturday morning. They were going to walk through the park on the way to "get something to eat at Parc". And then they'd stop and notice how someone had set up a lovely picnic. And then they'd notice the musician strumming away right beside it (their very own minstrel, if you will). And then Erin would notice Jason on one knee with a ring.That's how it went down and it was awesome. And I got to be a part of it. I photographed the whole thing from afa ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Old City + Broad Street | Vanessa + Jeff
I’m 95% sure Vanessa is an international spy.  Trying to coordinate schedules to talk and meet up was difficult when she was jetsetting all over the place “selling juice.”  I’ll go along with the story.  Whatever. She, Jeff, Scout, and I got together for their extended engagement session around Washington Square, Old City, and Broad Street.  Scout is an adorable and highly active 6 year old German Shorthair Pointer that came with Vanessa.  She is convinced Scout loves Jeff more though. As the story goes, the two (Vanessa and Jeff) met at a training class in Chicago and formed an instant friendship over craft beer, pizza, their ...
