Engagement Session at Chrissy Field

Engagement

This past weekend I had an engagement session with a great couple who made the drive from Union City to Chrissy Field for Golden Hour (what photographers refer to as the hour before sunset when everything gets a beautiful golden glow). They have been dating for 7 years (she’s a very patient woman). Their first meeting story was great: he threatened to throw her over a balcony at a friend’s party. What an introduction. You could say he literally swept her off her feet! (Okay, that was really bad.) It was beautiful out and we made the most of the clear skies to get the Golden Gate Bridge in a few pictures.
She’s short so I couldn’t resist a tip-toe shot. (Not that I have any room to talk, just being barely 5 feet myself!)
I love going to Chrissy Field because it has so many great areas. I love grungy old industrial buildings – they just make a great backdrop.
They marry this fall and I’m so happy for them. It was incredibly obvious that they’re truly in love.

All the best, guys!

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Kelly Drive | Carla + Ben
There’s something that happened during my session with Carla and Ben that hasn’t happened before: we were talking and laughing so much that I didn’t even get the juicy details about their relationship – how they met (perhaps gardening but I could have made that up) or even how the proposal went down. Sheesh!What I can say is that these two are magnificent human beings. We scheduled the session along Kelly Drive for primo springtime nature. I swear it’s one of the most beautiful roads in the entire city. They live in New York (Ben is from the area; Lower Merion to be precise!) and we had originally planned the session for a week or two lat ...

Beverly + Charles: An Engagement Session around Rittenhouse Square
Beverly, Charles, Emma and I met up the other week for a great engagement session around Rittenhouse Square. Let me give you a bit of back story: Bev was good friends with Chuck's sister. They've known each other for ages. They even went to the same college (Villanova) and dated a bit while they were there. They parted ways and Chuck went off to med school in Virginia. He came back to the area, the two reconnected, and guess what… They're getting hitched next May at the Radisson Warwick in Philly.The four of us started off in Rittenhouse Square. Emma is a gorgeous two year old Golden Retriever with a lovely coat and an affinity for squ ...

Katie + Justin’s engagement session
Ice cream-loving Katie met and fell in love with Justin, a guy from Tennessee with a southern drawl and the patience to wander around New York City all day before popping the question in front of the huge Christmas tree this past winter (he was almost forced to do it earlier at NBC Studios but that's another story altogether). They don't recall their first date or when this relationship became real. They met at school in Tennessee (she's from Delaware) and their friendship eventually morphed into something more.We all met up the other week at Battery Park in New Castle, Delaware for their e-session. This was a fantastic location with trees ...
