Katie + Justin’s engagement session

Engagement

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, fields, water, paths, fantastic light, and a heavenly breeze.

Helloooo, gorgeous skies!


And hellooooo gorgeous smiles. I actually asked Katie if her family was all dentists because her teeth were perfect and white. (FYI, she attributes this to Crest WhiteStrips.)





I love that the changing leaves pick up the exact amber/orange shade of their clothes.


And it really was awesome to have so many different backdrops within a 1 mile walk.



There were actually a ton of people at the park on that Sunday evening but you’d never know it by looking at these two. There’s a world around us, really?!


And with the last moments of sunset we got the pier to ourselves.


I’m totally digging those curved lights and the patterns in the wood. And with a cooler color treatment…


You’ll be seeing a lot more of these lovebirds next June for their wedding at Hockessin Memorial Hall. I’m going to be working on her to get an ice cream cake or Rita’s buffet going on for it. Stay tuned. Katie & Justin, thanks for the great evening!

All love that has not friendship for its base, is like a mansion built upon sand.

Engagement Session at Chrissy Field
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 ...
