Main Line engagement photographer | Haverford College | Lindi + Michael

Engagement

This engagement session, and quite frankly the relationship, is pretty pooch-centered. I mean, it’s kind of hard not to fall for a happy, floppy goldendoodle. She was just 9 pounds when they took her home but Tobi, at 50 lbs now and celebrating her 1 year birthday, is pretty full grown with all of the energy that you’d expect.

But let me back up to the beginning of Lindi + Michael.

Their story is fabulous! They met online (hooray!). Michael noted that she was attractive, charming, and, most importantly, active. Michael messaged Lindi but didn’t have much of a profile up so she (understandably) didn’t respond. Michael had the gall to call her out on this, eventually giving her his name so she could do some creep-checking. She hilariously looked him up on Athlinks, a website for athletes’ race results, was impressed with his times, and gave him a chance.

They met up for coffee for their first date. She was training for a marathon and he an Ironman. Their second date was a run through Central Park.

There were obviously undeniable sparks because they got Tobi and moved in together within 3 months.

In July of this year they went walking on the beach while vacationing with the family. Michael had plans to propose then but they were kicked off the beach for having a dog. Through much coercion, he finally convinced Lindi to go back out for another walk later when he popped the question.

I met up with this adorable, fast trio the other week on a beautiful fall day at Haverford College, near where Lindi grew up.

It was such a joy to get them (relatively) still for a little while. I can’t wait to see them again at their wedding at Pomme next March!

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | 30th Street Station | Jenny + Casey
You are just going to flip over these pictures from Jenny and Casey’s engagement session at 30th Street Station the other week. The lighting was incredible, they were absolutely adorable and affectionate, and we got ourselves into some great situations. This session was fantastic because it really shows how the location can tie into a couple’s past and make pictures that are that much more special. For a little bit of background, Jenny and Casey met… out… somewhere in Boston. He was hitting on her while she was with some co-workers and Jenny, being the firecracker that she is, made him work for her attention by grilling him on what he did ...
