Philadelphia engagement photographer | Old City | Allison + Craig

Engagement

Allison and Craig got together after many, many months of playing Quizzo on opposing teams at a local bar.  Craig’s team was better but that’s neither here nor there.

What matters is that one night their Quizzo host invited them out to a concert, they both went, and things haven’t quite been the same since.  We walked around their neighborhood in Philly’s gorgeous Old City for their engagement session.

Allison works long hours at the hospital and Craig can walk to work from their home in Old City.  When they’re not planning a wedding within 6 months, they roadtrip, tailgate, watch football, and take care of a particular little furball.

Zelda is a 4 year old miniature Schnauzer who was originally named Muffintop (ouch).  She is more energetic that you can imagine and is frequently guilty of walk-by lickings.  (No, seriously, they hold Zelda to the side whenever someone passed by so that the unsuspecting victim doesn’t end up with a wet ankle.)

We got some great porch access at their classically Philadelphia brick home.

In the Poconos, there is a waterfall a small hike from the road.  They had visited it a few times and it was there in May that Craig popped the question.

I will be seeing them very soon for their wedding next month at Valley Green Inn.  I can’t wait!

Jamie and Jeffrey are winos in the best possible sense of the word.  Together they share an affection for wine that has been a common thread in their relationship.  Of course that meant that there was no where else but a winery for their engagement session.  They found the perfect place at the picturesque Galer Estate Vineyard & Winery in Kennett Square. Jamie and Jeffrey are both committed to working on self-betterment.  They met at a Landmark Forum course on communicating. The romance didn’t begin until a year later as Jeffrey had just moved back from California. I forgot to ask about her apparently troubled eyes ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Philadelphia Art Museum | Stacy + Joe
I have been on the edge of my seat to show you these pictures for ages. A computer malfunction kept me away from these beloved files for far too long! Stacy is bright and smiley and Joe is the grounded one. They met at a bar about 9 years ago in college (just like in the fairy tales). They were dating for a year and she didn’t even know his real first name since he went by his last name to everyone. This became a little awkward when she called his house and realized he was one of 10.Needless to say, this was sorted out and Stacy and Joe will be getting married next month in two separate weddings, one here in Philly and another in Stacy’s ...

Delaware County Couples Photographer | Linvilla Orchards | Julie + Chuck
What was originally going to be a Trash the Dress session evolved into a fallsy love session a little over a year after Julie and Chuck’s wedding. The thing is, you just can’t expect these two to want something ordinary. After all, we had already done beach, boardwalk, kites, water, and carousels for their engagement session and then the gorgeous Bear Creek Mountain Ski Resort for their wedding. In that vein, if you’re going to do fall, you do it all the way.We met up at Linvilla Orchards in Media, PA for autumn colors, apples, pumpkins, farm animals, and as much trouble as we could find.Julie realllly likes goats. Chuck likes Julie. The ...
