Chester County Engagement Photographer | Longwood Gardens | Drea + Steve

Engagement

Philadelphia sports fans are famous (okay, notorious) for being particularly crazy and fanatical.  I’ve had my Flyers fans and Eagles fans and Phillies fans but Drea and Steve were my first Union fans.  In fact, they owe their relationship to the soccer team.

The Philadelphia Union cheering section, the Sons of Ben, had an away game in Montreal 3 years ago.  Steve went with a group of friends and Drea went solo (some friends backed out last minute).  It was on the bus back that Steve and his rowdy friends chatted up Drea.  They were shot down when they invited her out that night.

4 months later at a Union charity event, Steve walks in from a Santa run (in a Santa suit), recognizes Drea, and finally gets her number.

We did their engagement session at beautiful Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square during their Orchid Extravaganza.

Last July Steve and Drea took a trip back to Montreal where Steve popped the question in front of a beautiful old church.  I love the delicate diamond infinity band Drea chose for her engagement ring.

I’m psyched for their wedding this May at Duportail House.  I’m expecting a bunch of yard games and a hell of a good time!

“Why do you build me up, Philly U baby, just to let me down and mess me around.. then, worst of all (worst of all!) you never score Union like you say you will, but we love you still! We need U! (We need U!) more than anyone Union, you know that we have from the start! So build me up, Philly U don’t break my heart.”

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Spruce Street Harbor Park | Monica + Evan
In the flurry of getting the new website up (you love it?  So nice of you to say so!) there was a Society Hall engagement session that you never saw.  It’s honestly quite tragic since it was so magically perfect.  The weather, light, colors, location, and, oh right, THE COUPLE could not have been better!  As a belated treat, I give you Monica and Evan!  (Please hold your applause til the end.) We wandered around some great streets in Society Hill and Old City and ended playfully at the Spruce Street Harbor Park. These two have been together for 6 years.  They met at UCLA through a tutoring program where they were both mentors.  ...

Meet Stacy and Mike. Stacy and Mike look like they belong in an ad or the cover of a college pamphlet. They are such a good looking couple with fantastic smiles.(See what I mean?)We met at the Philadelphia Art Museum to go over some details before heading out for their engagement shoot on possibly the last absolutely beautiful day of 2009.
