Montgomery County Engagement Photographer | Jennifer + Mel

Engagement

Jennifer and Mel live in a magical place. They have wild horses in their backyard. I arrived and was ushered outside to see about a dozen of them running past. You could hear their hooves. They also house a vocal cat, two hairy guinea pigs, and something about a well-loved Quesadilla.

I knew I wanted to be a part of their lives/wedding from my first interaction with Jenn and I was so excited to meet her Mel.

The two met at massage therapy school years ago. Upon seeing Mel the very first time, Jenn knew she was a big deal – enough to make her speechless.

I finally met them in person for their engagement session at their new home. They were as playful and fabulous as I had hoped. So much laughter!

Jenn proposed to Mel in late 2011. She gave her a ring with black and white diamonds that coded “143” (I Love You). As Jenn tells it, her side of the proposal was all happy waterworks and a blubbering mess. After Mel got a ring for Jenn, she waited for the perfect time to pop the question back. She thought a trip to New Hope might make for the right romantic opportunity but it just wasn’t quite there. On the way back home, she suggested stopping by the place where they met (where their old massage school used to be). It was there where Mel gave Jenn butterflies for a second time.

They spend a lot of time in their kitchen together – cooking, drinking wine, laughing, and just enjoying each other.  They make an incredible family.

Did I mention that they’re utterly ridiculous? That’s an Escalade, ladies and gentlemen. Livin large!

I had such a great time getting to know these two and being brought in to their wonderful world. I can’t wait to photograph them again at their wedding at the Morris House Hotel next year!

Washington DC Engagement Photographer | Lisa + Jeff
I love Lisa and Jeff.There, I said it.A few weeks ago I went down to Washington DC to photograph their extended engagement session around Dupont Circle where they live and Union Station where they spent quite a bit of time with hellos and goodbyes.But let me back to up to the beginning. Jeff’s roommate went to law school with Lisa. 3 months after meeting, Lisa moved to New York for a job and they worked out a long distance relationship for the next year and a half (hence the significance of Union Station) before she came back to DC and Jeff.We were all watching the weather on the day of the session. Philly was beautiful. DC, on ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Bella Vista | Joanna + John
I could go on and on about Joanna and John for a very long while. About how he’s obviously enamored with her or how impressively fit they are (we’re talking crossfit, paleo fit) or how they’re all kisses and laughter together or how they love creating masterpieces in the kitchen with one another or how they simply rock. Because they do. Hard.But I’d rather get you to the pictures from their engagement session around Philadelphia’s Queen Village/Bella Vista where they live. We had a fabulous time wandering around the streets and parks and basking in some of the most incredible light.See for yourself!So the way these two met was interesting ...

Philadelphia Anniversary Photographer | Old City | Vanjul + Adarsh
Vanjul and Adash’s session is like an engagement session but a few years after the fast. They were actually married 3 years ago in India but they don’t have any pictures of themselves from their day so they decided to make up for lost time with a sweet session in beautiful (albeit very chilly) Philadelphia. Though there wasn’t rain the day of our session, they brought it to commemorate the rain that came down in buckets on the day of their wedding, long enough for everyone to get soaked. Vanjul currently lives in Philadelphia, finishing her residency in pulmonology while Adarsh is in Connecticut finishing his residency in ca ...
