Philadelphia Proposal Photographer | LOVE Park | Andrew + Teresa

Engagement

Teresa and Andrew’s romance has been one incredible whirlwind! They both agree that it was something special from the beginning. They live in New York and met online (w00t!) in January, talked on the phone a bit and met up briefly the next night where she mentioned that she had never been to Philly. A few days later they were sharing their “first date” in a road trip together to the city of brotherly love! They stopped at JFK Plaza (aka Love Park) that day but Teresa didn’t feel it was quite right to have their picture taken in front of the LOVE statue. They spent the day wandering around, getting cheesesteaks, and then heading back.

Fast forward to the other week… Andrew takes Teresa back to Philly under the guise that they were going to a picnic for a friend. She had even bought ingredients for some dishes but was convinced not to deal with it.

Andrew knows her so well – Teresa suggested that they go back to Love Park. This was exactly where Andrew had set me up to be for him to bring her back to where it all began and pop the question. Love Park being what it is, there was a guy there hustling people to take their picture. How classically Love Park!

She was totally surprised! Throughout the shoot, she kept saying, “I’m engaged…  I’m engaged!!!”

I had such a blast. Proposal shoots just thrilling and I jump at the chance every single time. The proposal and the time immediately following are just electric. Teresa and Andrew, congratulations! Thank you so much for including me in something so special and amazing!

Proposal in Philadelphia LOVE Park

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”
~ Pablo Neruda

Philadelphia Proposal Photographer | Longwood Gardens | Julius + Clare
Julius and Clare met 9 months to the day of their proposal.  It took one 13 hour first date and they both knew that they had found their one. Julius called me to talk about a plan for photographing his proposal.  We talked and emailed extensively to come up with the perfect plan to surprise Clare.  Since it was February  and Clare isn’t keen on cold weather, we needed something that she would agree to. He considered Morris Arboretum and the Rodin Museum but both were ruled out as being too problematic with rain.  Longwood Gardens was perfect unless she didn’t want to go quite so far away that morning. We had our maps and plans.  We ...

Julia + Matt’s Engagement Session
Do you have a zombie contingency plan? No? You'd better get on that asap. Matt and Julia do and they're awesome (and I'm not just saying that to secure a spot for the impending zombie apocalypse).These zombie-hating lovebirds met at the University of Delaware. He played rugby for the men's team; she played rugby for the women's team. He hollered at her from the sidelines at games and she fell for him. They are two utterly hilarious people. Matt is good at being fussy and cracking jokes and Julia is good at rolling her eyes at Matt. They play off of each other so well. They're partners in crime. They laugh. A lot. And it's magical. ...

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 ...
