Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Lincoln Financial Field, Love Park, Art Museum | Sarah + Chuck

Engagement

She’s practically a Southern belle, growing up outside of Richmond, VA. He grew up in West Chester and attended Eagles training camps as a kid. The two met at James Madison University and live in Arlington now but chose Philly for their engagement session. Sarah figured the only way she could get Chuck to agree was if it was on his home turf – Lincoln Financial Field, home of the Philadelphia Eagles. The come up frequently for Eagles and Phillies games. This time they were the main event at the stadium.

We had originally planned the photo session several weeks before but heavy rain forced us to postpone it that day. We lucked out with great (albeit very cold) weather. Poor Sarah is not a fan of the cold but Chuck is always warm so they find a way to make it work.

We started this extended engagement session at the Linc. Chuck had accidentally left his jersey at home so he had to get a new one that day. We managed to bump into Swoop, the Eagles mascot while we were there. He’s quite the charmer.

Sarah knows her man. You could say that Chuck was pretty psyched about being out on that field.

Chuck and Sarah went on vacation to Maimi. They got to the hotel and were told that “they had overbooked the standard rooms and were upgraded to something a bit swankier”. As they were led out to the beach cabanas, Chuck popped the question and had the bellhop snap pictures. Sarah was totally caught off guard, obviously said yes, and spent a luxurious weekend basking in the proposal. Check out this bling!

The two will be married in Richmond next April. Since the shoot, their family has already grown to include Riley, a 9 week old lab/retriever/terrier? puppy they adopted the night before the shoot. Trust me when I tell you this little guy is the epitome of adorable! Congratulations on the new baby and the upcoming wedding!

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Old City | Alyssa + David
This!  This session shows exactly what love looks like.  Blame it on the very cold winter temps to give you reason to snuggle up extra close.  Since we were walking around Philadelphia’s Old City on a very chilly afternoon, Alyssa and David did just that.  The resultant images just exude happiness, goofiness, and, yes, lots of love. The two met at Johns Hopkins University.  Alyssa was already a student there and David was visiting as a prospective student.  Alyssa’s friend was taking him around and showing off the campus, coming upon Alyssa’s dorm room.  Admittedly, he didn’t make the best first impression – eating her food and playful ...
