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 | Chestnut Hill | Riley + Gardner
Riley and Gardener met when they were 6.  They lived close to each other while growing up which is good because they’ve been dealing with a lot of long distance since dating.  He asked her to the junior prom in 10th grade and they’ve been together ever since. It seemed only perfect that we would get together for their engagement session right in their back yard, Wissahickon Park via Chestnut Hill. They have seemingly traveled all over the world together through family vacations in Georgia, Massachusetts, and Colorado as well as Puerto Rico and too many other places for me to remember. The closeness for their first few deca ...

Philadelphia engagement photographer | Old City | Allison + Craig
Allison and Craig got together after many, many months of playing Quizzo on opposing teams at a local bar.  Craig’s team was better but that’s neither here nor there. What matters is that one night their Quizzo host invited them out to a concert, they both went, and things haven’t quite been the same since.  We walked around their neighborhood in Philly's gorgeous Old City for their engagement session. Allison works long hours at the hospital and Craig can walk to work from their home in Old City.  When they’re not planning a wedding within 6 months, they roadtrip, tailgate, watch football, and take care of a particular little ...
