Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | University of Pennsylvania | Amanda + Nick

Engagement

Amanda and Nick met at Albright College about 10 years ago. He was her orientation leader. Turns out their first date was at a birthday party for one of Nick’s fraternity brothers. Things apparently went well because they’ve got a wedding coming up this May at the Trump National Golf Club in Pine Hill, New Jersey.

They’ve pretty much lived all over together. He went to graduate school at the University of Pennsylvania and then they took off to Germany together for a few years and then landed in San Diego where they are now. They try to be outdoors together as much as possible, hiking and vitising the beach since they live right by it. We met (for the first time) at Penn’s campus for their engagement session a few weeks ago and had such a good time despite the cold.

They’ve got their own flavor of goofiness together and I absolutely love it!

Nick took Amanda to their favorite Italian restaurant up in California and then retired to a cabin together for the evening. It had to be stressful – he got the cork stuck in the wine bottle and Amanda took “forever” to respond to him (though it was probably closer to a minute) before she blurted out if he had already asked her parents’ permission. Needless to say, she responded yes and I do believe they eventually got into that wine.

They had to rock their home teams. Nick’s from Cherry Hill so naturally he was representing the Phillies. Amanda, from Oregon, rocked the Mariners.

Amanda and Nick, can’t wait to see you back on the east coast in just a few short months for the wedding!

Love is like pi – natural, irrational, and very important.

Trish + Tom: Engagement Session around the Art Museum
Allow me to introduce Trish, Tom, and Seydou…Trish and Tom met a couple of years ago through a mutual friend. It's a very good thing they hit it off because they began running into each other all the time.They live right across the street from the Philadelphia Art Museum and we spent time wandering around the area close to their house and even kind of recreating the would-be proposal. They brought along their sweet-as-pie pup, Seydou (a name Tom received while he was in the Peace Corps).We started at the azalea garden along Kelly Drive by the Art Museum for some greenery and get some shots at just the perfect time of year for those vibrant ...

Bucks County Engagement Photographer | New Hope | Ali + Mike
It is not common that I meet my couple for their engagement session the day before their wedding.  Sometimes that’s just the way it works out, especially when the couple is out in sunny California dealing with moves and opening a coffee shop and planning a wedding. Regardless, I was so happy that they were able to carve out a little time for us to just play before their rehearsal dinner and big wedding festivities.  Since they were getting married and staying at Holly Hedge Estate, it made sense that we do the mini session in New Hope. It was a very chilly day.  Mike would have preferred about another 30 degrees but you could se ...

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 ...
