Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Chestnut Hill | Riley + Gardner

Engagement

Riley and Gardener met when they were 6.  They lived close to each other while growing up which is good because they’ve been dealing with a lot of long distance since dating.  He asked her to the junior prom in 10th grade and they’ve been together ever since.

It seemed only perfect that we would get together for their engagement session right in their back yard, Wissahickon Park via Chestnut Hill.

They have seemingly traveled all over the world together through family vacations in Georgia, Massachusetts, and Colorado as well as Puerto Rico and too many other places for me to remember.

The closeness for their first few decades of life was useful because they’ve had to spend quite a while apart since then – Gardner travels for weeks at a time for work, recently in Scranton and Rhode Island.  Riley spent a year as a snow bum in Telluride.

I so love Riley’s unique blue sapphire and diamond engagement ring.

When they show up in the same place at the same time, you can find them playing squash, skiing, and watching Eagles games.

Their wedding is this November at Sunnybrook Golf Club and I fully expect a crazy dancing crowd!

Main Line Engagement Photographer | Baldwin School | Deirdre + Pete
Deirdre and Pete met while they were in college at Gettysburg.  They shared a few classes together and were both involved in Greek life.  There was a slight flirtation but that was that. They both graduated and moved on, reconnecting five years later over Facebook and chatting it up. One year after that Deirdre was coming to town for the Philadelphia Rock n Roll half marathon and asked Pete if he was around for a drink afterwards.  Suffice it to say, he was. The two now live at the Baldwin School, a private pre-K to 12 school for girls on the Main Line.  Pete is a teacher there and lives in one of the residences on campus ...

Tim and Marisa make me smile. They came up from Washington DC for their engagement session around Old City in Philly. Tim is from Bucks County and Philly holds a special place in his heart, especially this historic area around Headhouse Square and Rittenhouse with its gorgeous old rowhomes and cobblestone streets.They say that they weren’t sappy people before they met. That’s pretty incredible because they were both utterly squeezable.Could this be any more Philly? (Okay, maybe if they were munching on some soft pretzels and cheesesteaks.)Tim was worried that a November session might not yield enough fall colors. Psh!We had a certain lit ...
