Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Manayunk | Rebecca & Nick

Engagement

In their group of friends from Penn State, Becca and Nick were the only ones not from Philly (she’s from Harrisburg and he’s from central New Jersey). This was obviously bound to happen. Their first date was at a diner that only had a half booth. This means that they sat side by side facing a wall. They ordered food and she chowed down on a burger but he was too nervous to eat. This October will mark their 6 years together and will also bring us together to celebrate their wedding at the DoubleTree in Philadelphia.

They now live in Manayunk together with a cat who snorts but can’t purr and a Jack Russell/Chihuahua mix who has a knack for getting into trouble (as JRTs will do). It seemed only fitting that we do their engagement session in Manayunk.

We met in Pretzel Park and started wandering.

Nick didn’t use many words but his expressions were priceless. I have a pretty good feeling that these two laugh. A lot.

The riverwalk behind the shops of Manayunk can be so gorgeous.

Nick popped the question this past December. Becca came home from work and Nick had assembled their little family and proposed.

I am looking forward to what they have in store this October. I can’t wait!

Philadelphia Proposal Photographer | LOVE Park | Andrew + Teresa
Teresa and Andrew’s romance has been one incredible whirlwind! They both agree that it was something special from the beginning. They live in New York and met online (w00t!) in January, talked on the phone a bit and met up briefly the next night where she mentioned that she had never been to Philly. A few days later they were sharing their “first date” in a road trip together to the city of brotherly love! They stopped at JFK Plaza (aka Love Park) that day but Teresa didn’t feel it was quite right to have their picture taken in front of the LOVE statue. They spent the day wandering around, getting cheesesteaks, and then heading back.Fast ...

Sarah + Kevin: Engagement Session in West Chester
She was in New York for a friend’s birthday. She arrived at the spot early as the band was setting up. He was in the band. They chatted and hit it off. That was four years ago and I'll be photographing their wedding this June.Sarah, Kevin, and I met up the other week in West Chester for their chilly but sun-kissed engagement session. In the process I learned about Kevin’s vast knowledge of every food establishment in the city (he recommends Buddy’s burgers, Iron Hill, and Culinary’s, by the way), their pooch, Hazel, who was this close to being a part of the shoot, and the romantic way Kevin visited Sarah in New York one Christmas Eve, to ...

Chester County Engagement Photographer | Longwood Gardens | Kelsie + Devin
I feel pretty important that these two homebodies ventured out of their house to come out for an engagement session with me.  We took a stroll around the beautiful grounds of Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA. They spend most of their free time on home projects for their fixer upper in Perkasie, PA.  I’m completely impressed that Devin has taken care of plumbing, electrical, flooring, and painting everything (then again, I haven’t seen the place so there’s that).  He now has an arsenal of tools and just figures it out when there’s an issue. Despite being a self-proclaimed homebody, Kelsie is outgoing and peppy.  She has a ...
