Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Old City + Broad Street | Vanessa + Jeff

Engagement

I’m 95% sure Vanessa is an international spy.  Trying to coordinate schedules to talk and meet up was difficult when she was jetsetting all over the place “selling juice.”  I’ll go along with the story.  Whatever.

She, Jeff, Scout, and I got together for their extended engagement session around Washington Square, Old City, and Broad Street.  Scout is an adorable and highly active 6 year old German Shorthair Pointer that came with Vanessa.  She is convinced Scout loves Jeff more though.

As the story goes, the two (Vanessa and Jeff) met at a training class in Chicago and formed an instant friendship over craft beer, pizza, their dedication to their careers and snarky remarks. Afterwards, Jeff went back to Austin, TX and Vanessa returned to Bentonville, AR but they kept in touch.

Six months later Jeff had an opportunity to move to Philadelphia. It was only a few months later when Vanessa was offered an opportunity of her own. Upon moving to Philadelphia they gravitated to each other like any two small town Arkansans in the big city would.  This was her first time living out of Arkansas and she truly feels like it’s “their city.”

When they’re not disrupting global relations, they carve out time for Razorbacks football and Jeff fosters his green thumb, cooking with the veggies and herbs from their garden.

I can’t even tell you how excited I was for Vanessa’s outfit change into an amazing tulle skirt, plaid shirt, and pearls.

I will see them next year for their wedding at the fantastic Morris House Hotel.  I can only assume that their fabulous fashion sense is a sign of great things to come!

All I know is you stole my eyes,
And was packaged to stone ’cause you put it down right,
All I know is you pull me through,
I don’t wanna see nothing if I ain’t seeing you,

Ugh… these two! I just dread going through all of the hundreds of images from Stacy and Joe’s extended engagement session around the Philly Art Museum. The problem is that they’re just too good and it will be close to impossible to narrow them down! I was worried this would happen with Stacy and Joe when I met them. My fears have been realized. Sigh…

It was one heck of a “first date” and they ended up in adjoining sleeping bags on the Baptist church floor by the end of the trip. They now live in Center City with their 3 year old chocolate lab, Bailey.We met close to their place on a chilly day just in time for some fantastic local color!Oh-so-fashionable! They are both quite athletic too – taking trips to maximize skiing, hiking, bike riding… She may be ...
