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!

Main Line Engagement Photographer | Bryn Mawr |Laura + Marc
I had the immense pleasure of hanging out with one perfectly quirky couple one evening in Bryn Mawr.  They are first shy and apprehensive (there’s a person with a camera right there) but after some cajoling, dandelions, and popcorn, there was plenty to say.  I present to you… Laura and Marc! These two had the best online dating luck ever.  They were each others’ first date.  He had been online for a while but never contacted anyone; she was on for a week and a half and responded to a particularly hilarious story Marc had put up about a 3am exercise incident.  Their first date was dinner and a movie, after which they sat and talked for ...

Montgomery County Engagement Photographer | Conshohocken | Ann + Mike [teaser]
You can't expect these homebodies to stray too far from home.  (It's enough that Mike got Ann to move out of the city and into "the country".)  So of course we did their engagement session on their home turf: Conshohocken.  Stay tuned for ice cream, great heels, and a highly distractable husky.

Alexis + Nick: Engagement Session in Old City Philadelphia
Alexis and Nick got engaged just one year ago on Thanksgiving (and Alexis' birthday). They were with her family and he gave her a birthday card. The card played "As Time Goes By" from Casablanca (her favorite movie). Dangling from the card was the ring. She said yes and they're having their wedding on the beach next year in Cape May.We wandered through Old City for their e-session. Nick wanted to make sure we got a few shots with the Ben Franklin Bridge in the background. Check!Then we headed to Elfreth's Alley. I'm actually ashamed I had never been here before and even more amazed that no one else had ever asked to shoot engagement/we ...
