Main Line Engagement Photographer | Bryn Mawr |Laura + Marc


I had the immense pleasure of hanging out with one perfectly quirky couple one evening in Bryn Mawr.  They are first shy and apprehensive (there’s a person with a camera right there) but after some cajoling, dandelions, and popcorn, there was plenty to say.  I present to you… Laura and Marc!


These two had the best online dating luck ever.  They were each others’ first date.  He had been online for a while but never contacted anyone; she was on for a week and a half and responded to a particularly hilarious story Marc had put up about a 3am exercise incident.  Their first date was dinner and a movie, after which they sat and talked for 7 more hours.  (What chemistry?)

That was 2.5 years and many, many movies ago.  That is one of their main hobbies together.  Her faves are campy horror flicks and he likes just about anything.  She has every ticket stub since she was 12 and he guesses he’s seen upwards to 3000.


Marc proposed in front of a theater last year where he had told her they were going to a showing with friends.  He popped the question and met up with friends to celebrate.


It made perfect sense that we’d take over the charming Bryn Mawr Film Institute for our shoot.

They complement each other in so many ways and find commonality in a million different ways.  It sounds trite but they just don’t get sick of each other.  Evenings are spent with their two very fat cats, binge watching tv shows and movies or playing board games like Settlers of Catan, Pandemic, and RISK.  In costume!  It still eludes me why I didn’t get to see this at their engagement session (ahem, take note for the wedding, please).

I did get a brief glimpse of their comic book/super hero alteregos towards the end of the evening.  Who can resist Captain America?


It was so much fun and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for their wedding next April!

Steve Rogers: Why? Where are we going?
James Barnes: The future.

It’s something pretty awesome when I ask a couple how they mat and the groom-to-be responds, “It was 8 years ago in college. I saw her across the room and I was thunderstruck.” The relationship didn’t flourish right away but they became close, spending a lot of time on the Campus Activities Team at Villanova University.Lives went on and he moved to New York. The reconnected at a New Year’s Eve party three years ago and sparks flew. Of course he had to kiss her at midnight. They did the long distance thing for a while until he moved down here.I met up with them on the insanely gorgeous campus at Villanova University for their engagement p ...
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 ...
New York Engagement Photographer | Prospect Park | Vanessa + Kenny
Vanessa and Kenny’s relationship goes waaaay back, like high school back.  And then it stops.  And then it starts again.  But before I get into that, let me set the scene: we got our schedules in sync to photograph their engagement session right around the corner from their home in Brooklyn not long before their wedding.  There were ideas swirling around about where we should go and what we should do but we decided to keep it simple and wander around Prospect Park. These two are fantastic together.  If there were any jitters of being in front of the camera, my lens certainly didn’t see them.  They felt like old friends who invited me f ...
