Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Queen Village | Sheila + Sanjay

Engagement

In the midst of this frozen weather, it’s nice to think back just a few short weeks ago to Sheila and Sanjay’s engagement session on an unusually mild Philly fall day. The two met at a Hanukkah party and hit it off. On their first date at Devon, Sanjay brought her a red rose though Sheila worried he wasn’t interested since he didn’t make a move at the end of the night. Lucky for us all, he was just being gentlemanly.

We took pictures around their home in Queen Village along the waterfront.

Sanjay says that he knew by the second date that she was the one. Her compassion was obvious and attractive. Their compatibility was undeniable.

The two went to a friend’s wedding in Hawaii. Sanjay had them get up early so that they could watch the sunrise from a volcano. Sheila thought it odd that Sanjay was still in the car while she was off taking pictures. He arrived just as the sun was rising and asked her to put away the camera. She protested that she would miss the best shots but figured it out once he presented her with a ring.

The bracelet Sheila wears has an inscription of the coordinates of that volcano, a gift from an incredibly thoughtful aunt.

The two have very busy lives. Sanjay is in management consulting, flying off for work during the week. Sheila is a midwife with very, very long hours. When they are together I hear they watch a lot of Breaking Bad.

I am really looking forward to the new year when I’ll see them for their two-day Hindu/Jewish multicultural wedding at Morris House Hotel!

Bucks County Engagement Photographer | Lake Nockamixon | Jeanette + Kevin
Jeanette and Kevin have been together for 6 years.  I’ve known them since 2010 when I photographed Kevin’s sister’s wedding.  It does not seem like it has been that long at all!  Their family is fabulous and that’s one of the things that attracted Jeanette to Kevin in the first place – he has always shown that he’s extremely family oriented. Kevin had had his eye on Jeanette for some time.  He contacted her when the time was right and asked her out.  She was extremely nervous for their first date and was convinced Kevin was having a bad time because he didn’t smiled.  She realized at the end of the date that he had something that wasn ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Philadelphia Museum of Art | Emily + Leonardo
It is my great pleasure to introduce Nelly (and her pets, Emily and Leonardo)! These three drove down from Massachusetts the other week for their engagement session around Philly’s beautiful Art Museum.A few things about these three: Emily is sweet as pie, Leonardo is quite the charmer, and Nelly is big on squirrels. Emily and Leonardo met online and shared their first date at a wine bar that Emily’s friends crashed, sitting a few booths down facing Leonardo. He was apparently unfazed as he managed to set up more dates with Emily, stretching a chalkboard project from a trip to a sketchy flea market into several dates together and trips to ...

It was just last month that Erin and Scott celebrated their 5 year anniversary of that fateful night in March when they met at a bar for a birthday party. They chatted and had arranged a date by the next week.I entered the picture a few months ago when they contacted me about photographing their wedding coming up this June at Castle Yacht Club in New Jersey. I was excited to meet them in person for their engagement session around the Philly Art Museum just the other week. Spring was in full bloom and I was psyched to make use of it. We had perfect puffy clouds, lots of light, color everywhere, and a touch of wind for good measure.We made ...
