Brittany + Justin engagement session in Delaware

Engagement

So I see this couple show up on motorcycles and think to myself, “I bet they’d be fun but no way that’s my couple. Who wants to be worried about helmet hair for their engagement session?” I text Brittany to get her ETA and receive, “We are here! By the bikes :)”. Awesome! And not a single trace of helmet head.

We met at Brecknock Park in Camden, Delaware and the session pretty much rocked. As well as defending her against spiders, Justin can put Brittany in fits of laughter. He’s a goofball and they play off of each other so well.


We had the kind of light that you get in winter. The kind that makes everything crisp and peach-colored. March came in as a lion and we got a very chilly evening to go along with that delicious lens-flare inducing light.



Brittany grew up right around the corner. She knew the park well. We walked through some paths with dappled light, ponds, and naked trees.





I really can’t wait for their beach wedding this May. They’re the perfect combination of affectionate and playful. It seems like they’ve known each other forever.



Oh, and Brittany has the most incredible light blue eyes.


And of course we had to get in some pics of the bikes. Brittany got her bike license just a few days before in the pouring rain. Incidentally, these colors are close to their wedding colors – turquoise and orange. Nothing ordinary for these two!


Yeah, they’re pretty great.


Brittany and Justin, see you two very, very soon! I’m sending good vibes your way for a very speedy recovery for Justin.

Oh blessed be the day, the month, the year, the season and the time, the hour, the instant, the gracious countryside, the place where I was struck by those two lovely eyes that bound me.

Princeton, NJ Engagement Photographer | Casey + Eric
It’s the age old love story. She was a nurse; he was a resident. She had her eyes on him and asked if he wanted to go out one night. They went to Triumph Brewery in Princeton, down the street from the hospital, and conversation was so easy. The date that night and all of them since them have been so good that they’ll be celebrating their wedding next month at Knowlton Mansion in Philadelphia.These two have a thing for cooking that made me want to invite myself over to their place for dinner. Casey apparently makes a pretty mean mac and cheese and can rock some pancakes. Eric’s got the omelets. They made a rack of lamb for Valentine’s D ...

You can't expect these homebodies to stray too far from home.  (It's enough that Mike got Ann to move out of the city and into "the country".)  So of course we did their engagement session on their home turf: Conshohocken.  Stay tuned for ice cream, great heels, and a highly distractable husky.

Philadelphia Couples Photographer | Valley Green Inn | Carol + Walter
I photographed Carol and Walter in a session that may have been my favorite of all time.Most of my couples are in their twenties or thirties and have known each other a few years. I meet them and see that they are completely smitten that they’ve found the partner who will be there for better or for worse for the next 50 years.And then I get a call from Carol who wants an anniversary session with her husband, Walter. The difference here is that they have been married for 50 years (anniversary on January 12th). What is amazing, inspiring, and wonderful is that they are still completely smitten that they have found that partner in each other. ...
