Julia + Matt’s Engagement Session

Engagement

Do you have a zombie contingency plan? No? You’d better get on that asap. Matt and Julia do and they’re awesome (and I’m not just saying that to secure a spot for the impending zombie apocalypse).

These zombie-hating lovebirds met at the University of Delaware. He played rugby for the men’s team; she played rugby for the women’s team. He hollered at her from the sidelines at games and she fell for him. They are two utterly hilarious people. Matt is good at being fussy and cracking jokes and Julia is good at rolling her eyes at Matt. They play off of each other so well. They’re partners in crime. They laugh. A lot. And it’s magical.

Their e-session had been rescheduled so many times due to the weather that I’m almost amazed it happened at all. We finally met last week in Manayunk to wander around for the pictures.



We definitely wanted to get the bridge in the background. Unless you looked for it, you’d never know there was a cute little path right behind Main Street that runs along the river.


And some great abandoned train tracks.


Then we made our way over to Pretzel Park which is right next to St. John the Baptist Church where they’ll be getting married next April.





And because they’re really just big kids (especially Matt), we had to play on the swings.


Like I said, partners in crime…


We were really excited about shooting under the train along Cresson St. The whole look of it is so neat with the cobblestone street and teal-painted metal.




As a couple and individually, they’re just fabulous people. It can be nothing short of a great session with so much laughter.


I cannot wait for their wedding next year at the Old Mill in Media, PA. I don’t want you to get too anxious, but I got a pretty good tip off that they’re going to have the most amazing, incredible, awesome cake ever. Ever! And it’ll be quite the party too. 2011, hurry up!

Thanks, Matt & Julia, I love you both to pieces!

Chester County Engagement Photographer | Longwood Gardens | Katie + Dave
Four years ago Katie and Dave met at a mutual friend’s dinner party. Truth be told, Dave wasn’t too smooth. They parted ways and reconnected a few years later on Facebook when he wished her a happy birthday and tried his luck again. This time it stuck. They met up for dinner at the same place of their first meeting and then wandered around the library browsing old books for sale for a dollar.I’m sure you can guess that things went well because I met up with them at Longwood Gardens for their engagement session on a chilly day this March during Orchid Extravaganza. They both live in Michigan now but Katie grew up right around the corner a ...

Bucks County Engagement Photographer | Lake Nockamixon | Jeanette + Kevin
Jeanette and Kevin have been together for 6 years.  I’ve known them since 2010 when I photographed Kevin’s sister’s wedding.  It does not seem like it has been that long at all!  Their family is fabulous and that’s one of the things that attracted Jeanette to Kevin in the first place – he has always shown that he’s extremely family oriented. Kevin had had his eye on Jeanette for some time.  He contacted her when the time was right and asked her out.  She was extremely nervous for their first date and was convinced Kevin was having a bad time because he didn’t smiled.  She realized at the end of the date that he had something that wasn ...

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 ...
