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.

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Old City + FDR Park | Elise + Eddie
Eddie is the publisher of Philly Current Magazine and the graphic designer head honcho at Loose Leaf Concepts who makes things pretty.  He might be a familiar face if you recall Lisa + Jeff’s Ritz Carlton fusion wedding (Eddie, Lisa’s brother, was her man of honor). Elise is a child life specialist at CHOP who gives little people better lives. Individually they’re pretty great.  When they met at a Philadelphia-based Canada Day party a few years ago, the universe did a happy dance (to Oh, Canada).  This was a great event because much happiness, dancing (so much dancing), and more Catholic/Jewish fusion was on the horizon. So I met up ...

Triana + Ankur: Engagement session at Longwood Gardens
It’s adorably classic: they lived in the same dorm freshman year at Rutgers and they’ve been together ever since. That was over 8 years ago and they’ll be having their wedding at Philadelphia City Hall next month.The two just seem so comfortable and happy with each other. They take walks along the Schuykill together. They’re huge movie buffs. They happen to be really into wizards and vampires (Triana is Team Edward, by the way, though she’s no fan of RPatz). She has a kindle so she can bear that goofy grin on the train without anyone really knowing it’s due to teen romances. (And I admit, I totally geeked out on this too!)We met at Long ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Valley Green Inn | Cait & Bob
I have been falling in love with Cait and Bob for a while now. Every interaction has been so lovely. They are the kind of people you look forward to seeing and I’m bummed that I don’t have a good reason to run into them again before their wedding at the Bellevue next year.Before I get too depressed thinking about that, let me share their engagement photography session in lush Wissahickon Valley Park (part of the Fairmount Park system). We started our adventures by Valley Green Inn.I am really into their meeting/first date story. They met through a… um, mutual friend and were set up on a blind date. The plan was Bahama Breeze for dinner f ...
