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,

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Logan Square | Elise + Eric
Eric and Elise are getting married today surrounded by a group of 50 of their nearest and dearest somewhere in Philadelphia.  I’m not telling you where because I don’t want you to crash their party (it’s one of my absolute favorite venues in the city). Let’s go back two years ago when they first met.  Elise had just moved to the city from Chicago and went out with friends and friends of friends.  Eric was there too and they hit it off. They kept the spark going through easy conversation at breakfast dates.  She lived in Fairmount, he in Northern Liberties.  They had spent many a lovely evening per ...

He’s always hot; she’s always cold but somehow someway we managed to get the perfect day for an extended engagement session for Katie and Nate. First we strolled around Fairmount and then we wandered down to the Rittenhouse Square area for some A+ engagement pictures filled with liquid courage, Christopher Walken impressions, potatoes, high fives, the most pitiful thugs you’ve ever seen, and so much laughter. You will really want to see the rest of this session!
