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.

Sarah + Kevin: Engagement Session in West Chester
She was in New York for a friend’s birthday. She arrived at the spot early as the band was setting up. He was in the band. They chatted and hit it off. That was four years ago and I'll be photographing their wedding this June.Sarah, Kevin, and I met up the other week in West Chester for their chilly but sun-kissed engagement session. In the process I learned about Kevin’s vast knowledge of every food establishment in the city (he recommends Buddy’s burgers, Iron Hill, and Culinary’s, by the way), their pooch, Hazel, who was this close to being a part of the shoot, and the romantic way Kevin visited Sarah in New York one Christmas Eve, to ...
