New Jersey Engagement Photographer | Strawbridge Park | Kelly + Christian

Engagement

Kelly and I went back and forth over a location for her engagement session with Christian for a while. We debated the merits of so many locations and decided on Strawbridge Park in New Jersey. Had I known then what I know now, I would have just told her to show up at a trash heap and we’d still create awesomeness (hmmm… that could be cool…).

They showed up with ideas, images that she liked, a change of clothes, and absolute magic. I could not be any more in love with the engagement pictures we got that day. They are so sweet and intimate, colorful and lovely. And sheesh, these two look like they walked out of a catalog for J. Crew!!!

They met while attending the University of Scranton but didn’t start dating until 1.5 years later when they found themselves as the only singletons at a surprisingly small New Year’s Eve party. You can guess who paired up when the clock struck midnight.

I loooooove this image and that rogue strand of hair is perfection! (So there, Christian!)

They have been together for about four years now.

Christian recalls going to check out rings one day just to see how it felt. He was shocked that it didn’t freak him out and realized that Kelly was really, truly, seriously THE ONE. He bought a ring that very day and held on to it for a few months.

She says that he terrorized her about the proposal and she felt that it was never going to come. He called her out on her roofdeck one misty night under the guise of something being wrong with the grill and popped the question.

You will see a lot more of these two pretty soon – their wedding is in March at the Racquet Club of Philadelphia and I cannot wait to see what kind of magic we can make then!

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Old City | Sarah + Ryan
These two beautiful people graced me for an evening of tromping all overt Old City the other day.  They’re new in town, having moved from Florida in May. Ryan’s only request was water so we met at Race Street Pier to begin the pictures.  They were naturals from the first second. The two met at a country bar in Orlando two years ago.  Ryan walked in looking preppy as can be with rolled red pants, a linen shirt, and boat shoes.  Sarah just had to send a picture of this guy to her friends via Snapchat.  He caught her doing it and the rest is history! They were at DisneyWorld in January.  He managed a romantic private night ...

Engagement Session at Chrissy Field
This past weekend I had an engagement session with a great couple who made the drive from Union City to Chrissy Field for Golden Hour (what photographers refer to as the hour before sunset when everything gets a beautiful golden glow). They have been dating for 7 years (she's a very patient woman). Their first meeting story was great: he threatened to throw her over a balcony at a friend's party. What an introduction. You could say he literally swept her off her feet! (Okay, that was really bad.) It was beautiful out and we made the most of the clear skies to get the Golden Gate Bridge in a few pictures.She's short so I couldn't resist a ...
