Philadelphia Proposal Photographer | Morris Arboretum | Keith + Abbie

Engagement

It was really chilly and almost any wonder Keith was able to convince Abbie to show up at Morris Arboretum one afternoon while they both had colds. But he got her over there after a morning with massages and it (mostly) everything went according to plan.

I had been talking with Keith for a few weeks prior to the proposal day session. We had discussed the perfect time of day, the perfect location, angles, schedules, etc. Morris Arboretum is a gorgeous location in Chestnut Hill in Philadelphia. They would be coming in from New York so he wasn’t able to scope out the space beforehand. Thankfully, I’ve been to Morris several times and absolutely love it there. We worked on a spot that would be secluded but would have a place for me to get into position to see them both as he got down on one knee to pop the question.

I was armed and ready as they appeared (and then disappeared and then reappeared). This is what we planned out…

I was called over to them and we wandered around the park for a little bit just indulging in what just happened and all of the questions Abbie had for Keith about what was planned, who knew, how it all went down….

I learned that they both grew up in the Philly burbs but met at work and started dating about 2.5 years ago. There’s a discrepancy over who initiated the email flirtations but the result is clear. They live in New York now and are looking forward to starting a new chapter together.

Collette + Chris engagement session around the Philadelphia Art Museum
Collette’s favorite color is green so you already know she’s good people. Chris smiles when he looks at Collette. They met back in 2005 while he was a network guy and she worked at the systems desk. He would bring Doritos to work, not because he particularly liked Doritos, but because Collette would come around and eat them. Their wedding colors will be based around 3 leaves she picked up during one of their first outings together. They are quirky and awesome and I love them.We met on a chilly and windy day in February to wander around the Philadelphia Art Museum area for their e-session. Can I tell you how much I love what they wore? ...
