Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Chestnut Hill | Stephanie + Nick

Engagement

Stephanie and Nick’s courtship has been less than traditional. The meeting, first kiss, etc. The second time they went out, he picked on her like a schoolboy (boys only do that to girls they really like, by the way). The day he proposed, Nick picked a fight with Stephanie to throw her off – it was later that evening when they were in the car outside of a restaurant where they were to be greeted by friends that he popped the question. She was so blindsided that she was speechless (she obviously said yes). Time from proposal to wedding is 5 months and yes, it can be done. They’ll be getting married at the gorgeous Glen Foerd Mansion this October.

We met in Chestnut Hill to wander around for their engagement session.

We choose those we like; with those we love, we have no say in the matter.

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 ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Italian Market | Christina + Chris
Not everyone can just hop down a block for the most delicious fresh produce, meats, cheeses, and baked goods Philadelphia has to offer.  The Italian Market is an amazing place.  Christina and Chris live right there and take advantage of their magical little neighborhood all the time.  It seemed fitting that we use it for the backdrop to their engagement session. They knew early on that they were it for each other.  Chris, a basketball fan(atic), is friends with Christina’s sister from work.  He says he played the slow game, incorporating the four corners offense to get the defense (Christina) come to him.  Whatever the tactic, it obvi ...
