Montgomery County Engagement Photographer | Valley Forge National Park | Becca + Mike

Engagement

Becca and Mike are something else. Becca and I had a long phone consultation and then I got to meet both of them in person. It still didn’t prepare me for the engagement session we had at Valley Forge National Park not long after. We lucked out with some of the most golden light, great temperatures, and amazing colors of the year.

Becca and Mike met at a friend’s party four years ago. Mike recalls that Becca Facebook stalked him and messaged him before they went out on their first real date together.

A few months into dating Becca was invited to a friend’s wedding in Belize. She knew that he was a big deal even then because it’s not just anyone you take with you across the world for a wedding.

She is a petite little thing who is good at shopping (according to Mike) and he’s a big lug who is good at mowing stripes in lawns and watching the Flyers (according to Becca).

These two are snarky and playful and stupidly, utterly in love. What could be better?

Mike proposed one night while they were just sitting there watching TV.

I had such a fun time playing around with them in some of the most incredible light of the year. Then again, I think these two would have made anything look good! I can’t wait to see what they do next May for their wedding at Stokesay Castle.

Ashley + Kevin: a Not Engagement Session all over Philadelphia
Some go the traditional route of engagement then engagement session then wedding... No one ever said that was the way you had to do it! You might remember Ashley from a modeling shoot earlier this summer. She came back for more but brought her main squeeze, Kevin with her for some not-yet-engaged engagement pictures. She and Kevin are moving to Atlanta and they wanted to be able to bring a little Philly with them to their new home. I adore this couple. They are so much fun. Ashley is beautiful and so relaxed in front of the camera and Kevin is simply awesome with a quick wit and a great smile. We had a fantastic extended "engagement"/co ...

Chester County Engagement Photographer | Longwood Gardens | Alexa + Donny
Alexa knew she wanted a country boy. Enter Donny, a guy who grew up on a farm and still has pedicure responsibilities for the goats. The met online (hooray!) last year and the connection was clear. Their first date was after a shift of hers that ended at 11:45pm. They closed down the restaurant and talked until 2:30am. Conversation was effortless. He made her laugh on that night in June and he makes her laugh now. We met up at Longwood Gardens for their engagement photography session. Alexa, being the the nontraditionalist that she is, didn’t want Longwood for its impeccable hand-raised flowers. She wanted to use the other parts of L ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Kelly Drive | Sophie + Ben
Sophie was given fair warning about Ben.  He lived across the country and neither felt “the spark” on the first date.  Call it fate or just plain perseverance but they’re getting married at the end of the month in what I’m certain will be an incredible and emotional day. I walked around with them through a lush little park on Kelly Drive on a sunny day. The two met online.  Ben was living in California but working in DC for long stretches at a time so it made sense to look into what the east coast had to offer.  He contacted Sophie but, with no profile pictures, there was no response.  You can’t blame him for trying for this g ...
