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,

He’s Steven.  Hi, Steven.  She’s the mayor of Philadelphia.  Hi, Aly.  She knows just about everyone in town.  She’s a peppy social butterfly.  He is less so though the same can be said for just about anyone. They recently moved down to Virginia for Steven’s job and she has found that she misses Philly terribly.  The simply had to have engagement pictures back here in the city where they met and fell in love. We began on streets around Rittenhouse Square with their mini goldendoodle, Charlie Brown.  He will also answer to “Nugget.” The shoot was so stinking easy.  They’re so great together - laughing, playing, goofing off, an ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Morris Arboretum | Amy + Zach
Amy and Zach approached me to do their engagement session a little bit unconventionally.  They wanted to be in their wedding clothes and do it at their wedding venue.  This way they could spend more time enjoying their wedding on the day of.  Pretty genius if you ask me. And so it was that Amy’s hair, makeup, and bouquet trials were all done on the same day a month before the wedding on a beautiful day at Morris Arboretum. Amy and Zach met 4 years ago online.  Clearly these two are already smart individuals.  Their first date was to a place serving pop tarts and burgers because, as Amy puts it, she has the palette of a toddler. ...
