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!

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Queen Village |Britt + Paul
I was the fifth wheel for a sunny afternoon engagement session with Britt, Paul, George, and Frank the other week in Queen Village.  Thankfully, they didn’t seem to mind my company. They spend a lot of time enjoying their neighborhood – the walks, restaurants, and people they’ve all come to know and love.  Somehow they’ll uproot just a few days after their wedding at the College of Physicians (this weekend!) and move for Britt’s internship in Michigan. Britt and Paul met five years ago on what I consider to be the best possible place to find a partner – the internets!  Britt was foolishly apprehensive of this younger gentleman b ...

Chester County Engagement Photographer | West Chester | Keri + Dan
I had been wanting to do an all out fair engagement session for ages! Lucky for me, I have the greatest couples in the world. When Keri, Dan, and I were thinking up ideas for what we should do and I offered up a fair, they jumped right on the idea. They love amusement parks and they’re so carefree and playful that it was absolutely perfect.This wasn’t our first choice, though. We were originally going to try to get to the Harleysville Fair, out by Keri and a fair she knows and loves. A bout of poison ivy meant we had to postpone the session and choose a replacement. I scrounged up the Goshen County Fair in West Chester and we all blindl ...
