Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Queen Village |Britt + Paul

Engagement

I was the fifth wheel for a sunny afternoon engagement session with Britt, Paul, George, and Frank the other week in Queen Village.  Thankfully, they didn’t seem to mind my company.

They spend a lot of time enjoying their neighborhood – the walks, restaurants, and people they’ve all come to know and love.  Somehow they’ll uproot just a few days after their wedding at the College of Physicians (this weekend!) and move for Britt’s internship in Michigan.

Britt and Paul met five years ago on what I consider to be the best possible place to find a partner – the internets!  Britt was foolishly apprehensive of this younger gentleman but he was persistent and she came to her senses.  The two are absolutely snarky and playful with each other.  They are affectionate in a loving way of riffing on each other and being close.

A significant amount of their communication is in the form of grunts and noises.  This may be attributable to Britt’s profession as a vet.  I don’t have an excuse for Paul.  He’s a computer programmer.

Their pups are hilarious.  The smaller pug is 1 year old George (so named for George Costanza), a playful ball of energy.  Frank (Franklin, if you’re being formal) is 6 and seems the older, wiser one who knows when it’s best to just sit there and pant.  Their family is rounded out by 3 cats at home.

The two were engaged last year in the most practical of ways.  It simply made sense since they knew they wanted to be together and she would be moving to Michigan.  With her grandmother’s ring and a sweet ceremonial display down the street, it was done!

I can’t wait to see them again in just a few days for what is sure to be a wedding with large amounts of laughter and possibly a few subtle sappy moments sprinkled in despite themselves.

Bree + Scott: Engagement Session at Longwood Gardens
So a few things to mention about an engagement session I did at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA earlier this month.1) Bree and Scott are majestically tall (5'10" and 6'5", respectively). I am not.2) I can't believe this was the first time I had ever shot an engagement session here – the place was gorgeous. We arrived on a Sunday on the opening day of their Orchid Extravaganza. There were so many people but we found some perfect moments when the crowds moved away for mere seconds.3) Scott is Marine and Bree agreed to share him with me on one of their last days together til the wedding in October. They met online in 2006 while he ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Kelly Drive |Katie + Franc
Katie and Franc met at a little place called Tattooed Mom’s.  The story goes that Franc’s brother was chatting up a few ladies and Franc swept in for the tallest, Katie.  They talked about growing up not far from each other in New Jersey.  That was about 10.5 years ago. You know where this is going.   We met up just a couple short weeks before their wedding (which was this past weekend at the Atrium at the Curtis Center) for an engagement session at a little place I like along Kelly Drive.  The weather was gorgeous and the ambience was, um, eclectic. About two weeks into dating, Katie realized Franc was “worth further ...
