Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Rittenhouse Square | Jen + Jeremy

Engagement

Jen and Jeremy make my heart flutter. They have the trifecta: warm, wonderful personalities, great looks, and a ridiculous dog.

The two met while attending Villanova University on a Habitat for Humanity group trip to Taos, New Mexico. It was one heck of a “first date” and they ended up in adjoining sleeping bags on the Baptist church floor by the end of the trip. They now live in Center City with their 3 year old chocolate lab, Bailey.

We met close to their place on a chilly day just in time for some fantastic local color!

Oh-so-fashionable! They are both quite athletic too – taking trips to maximize skiing, hiking, bike riding… She may be small but Jen was practically born in heels. She is the queen of heels from pumps to wedges. I suppose great legs come with the territory when you’re also a runner and fitness instructor teaching spin!

Jeremy knew that Jen would be expecting a proposal. They were going off on a trip to Spain and things were serious between them. He wanted maximum surprise value. Two mornings before the trip, Jen was in the shower, getting ready for a big interview. Jeremy paced the kitchen and decided that the time was now! Jen got out of the shower and took the towel from Jeremy, under which lay the ring. Complete surprise? Definitely.

I wish I could remember what prompted this but I assure you that I don’t condone domestic violence.

Then came Bailey, a rompy, floppy, happy, energetic pooch. She loves Jen but adoooores Jeremy. Bailey gets insanely jealous when she is forced to share her man.

Bringing dogs into shoots always involves an element of surprise. Here’s an outtake from just getting her. Yes, those are Jen’s legs in the air.

Bailey charmed everyone at Rittenhouse Square that day.

Then there comes a time when you just need to stiff-arm your dog to get a smooch from your sweetie! I can’t wait until their wedding next October at Tyler Arboretum!

p.s. Jen’s beautiful makeup was done by the talented ladies at Cheekadee.

Moorestown, New Jersey Engagement Photographer | Strawbridge Park | Courtney + Ryan
I’ve known Courtney for years and years. We went to grade school together. I remember going over to her house and getting amped up to go to the dinky St. Denis dance where all of the cool kids went. This has nothing to do with why I’m writing about Courtney today. When I came back from San Francisco Courtney emailed me to welcome me back to the area and said, “I want to get engaged just to get some of my own LDP originals for myself!!” Fast forward to this June when I get a new email from Courtney telling me that she got engaged that weekend and it was time for her to get those LDP wedding pics!Courtney and Ryan have been dating for about ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Old City | Alyssa + David
This!  This session shows exactly what love looks like.  Blame it on the very cold winter temps to give you reason to snuggle up extra close.  Since we were walking around Philadelphia’s Old City on a very chilly afternoon, Alyssa and David did just that.  The resultant images just exude happiness, goofiness, and, yes, lots of love. The two met at Johns Hopkins University.  Alyssa was already a student there and David was visiting as a prospective student.  Alyssa’s friend was taking him around and showing off the campus, coming upon Alyssa’s dorm room.  Admittedly, he didn’t make the best first impression – eating her food and playful ...
