Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Rittenhouse Square | Anne + David

Engagement

I literally met Anne and David 2 days before their wedding for their engagement session. They live in New York but chose Philly because it was where they first met. Dave’s parents were also married in Philly almost 40 years ago. It was great to be able to spend that time with them before the wedding day. I learned that they met while at Jefferson Hospital by having lots of mutual friends. There’s a debate over the actual first date but they’ve been together about 3 years, adventuring all over the world. Dave proposed to Anne at the summit of a mountain in Japan after a 10 mile hike and they have an adorable puppy named Jake.

We got together at Rittenhouse Square in Philly to play around for a while. It was a blustery day but I absolutely adore the obvious warmth between these two.

Her family is known for doing silly jumping pictures whenever they’re together so we had to integrate that into the session.

It was a great time and their wedding at Colonial Dames the next day was fantastic. Definitely stay tuned for that very soon!

Main Line Engagement Photographer | Bryn Mawr, PA | Colleen + Karl
I really don’t think I could have asked for a better day/place/couple for an engagement session. I met Colleen and Karl on one of the most beautiful days of the year when the autumn colors were just screaming off of the trees and the temperature was ideal. On top of that, Colleen and Karl were perfectly playful, loving, and photogenic. We shot at and near their beautiful house in Bryn Mawr on the Main Line. The icing on the cake was their 6 month old Greater Swiss Mountain Dog, Samson.We played at the house for a while with Samson. We took a tiny break to change clothes so that we could wander around the gorgeous neighborhood. I loved t ...

Chester County Engagement Photographer | Longwood Gardens | Kelsie + Devin
I feel pretty important that these two homebodies ventured out of their house to come out for an engagement session with me.  We took a stroll around the beautiful grounds of Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA. They spend most of their free time on home projects for their fixer upper in Perkasie, PA.  I’m completely impressed that Devin has taken care of plumbing, electrical, flooring, and painting everything (then again, I haven’t seen the place so there’s that).  He now has an arsenal of tools and just figures it out when there’s an issue. Despite being a self-proclaimed homebody, Kelsie is outgoing and peppy.  She has a ...
