Sara + Rob: Engagement Session in New Jersey

Engagement

It’s okay, you can say it… Holy s#!t, those colors are incredible! Yep, late October will get you the most amazing colors around here. (Sorry, California, the Northeast totally has you beat when it comes to the fall.)

Sara, Rob, Boz and I met up for this awesome engagement session at Smithville Park in Eastamption, New Jersey, one of my new favorite places to photograph. It was a bit muggy but everything else was pretty much perfect. The overcast skies gave off great diffused light that made the colors pop. And the grounds have a river, an old mansion, trails, barns, bricks, crawling ivy, peeling paint, crumbling buildings… just to die for.

Allow me to introduce Sara and Rob who have been together for 4 years. They met through a friend, he had heat stroke, they dated, they moved to New Jersey, got a dog, got engaged at Time in Philly, considered a big wedding for all of a few seconds, and will be getting married in a tiny wedding at Philadelphia City Hall in just a few weeks.




I should also introduce Boz, a 2(ish) year old Boston Terrier who loves cuddling and grazing but isn’t so keen on taking direction. Yeah, sounds like a terrier.




Seriously, this place was amazing! Great find, you two!





Yes, a field too. There’s a little Boz in there somewhere.


Awesome old brick walls, check!


I am so psyched for their upcoming wedding. Sara & Rob, I’ll see you two again very soon!

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Rittenhouse Square | Jen + Jeremy
Jen and Jeremy make my heart flutter. They have the trifecta: warm, wonderful personalities, great looks, and a ridiculous dog.The two met while attending Villanova University on a Habitat for Humanity group trip to Taos, New Mexico. It was one heck of a “first date” and they ended up in adjoining sleeping bags on the Baptist church floor by the end of the trip. They now live in Center City with their 3 year old chocolate lab, Bailey.We met close to their place on a chilly day just in time for some fantastic local color!Oh-so-fashionable! They are both quite athletic too – taking trips to maximize skiing, hiking, bike riding… She may be ...

Engagement Photography at Morris Arboretum in Philadelphia: Jessica + Camren
Remember Matt and Julia? Well this isn’t them. This is Jessica and Camren – Cam was one of Matt’s groomsmen. They all knew each other from college at the University of Delaware where Jessica and Camren first met. Both were rugby players and hung out in the same social circles as “buddies” before finally making things legit about three years ago.They’re totally laid back and comfortable. They complement each other so well – for one thing, she’s always hot and he’s always cold. We met up at Morris Arboretum for their engagement session and had a great time (despite the bee stings). The light was glorious.They were cracking each other (an ...
