Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | West Fairmount Park | Candace + Scott

Engagement

I feel like I got quite the treat the other week when Candace showed up in something other than sweatpants to her engagement session with Scott in West Fairmount Park. From what I’m told, she practically lives in them. Rightfully so. Their schedules are sooo busy – her with dental school and him with doctor’s hours. Nights involve coming home, getting take out, watching Law & Order, and falling asleep on the sofa together.

I was so glad that they were able to make time to come to Philly from Boston for our session. It was a bit chilly but they both looked absolutely fantastic and the park was incredibly lush and all ours!

They’re pretty hilarious together. Apparently impromptu dance parties are somewhat common.

Scott proposed to Candace on a hike along the ocean in Rhode Island. He had been picking on her for walking like a grandmother. He popped the question and she never saw it coming.

They’ll be back in town this September for what is sure to be a gorgeous wedding at the Radisson Warwick Hotel in Philadelphia. (I’m kinda hoping Candace changes into sweats for the reception so they can get their dance on!)

Philadelphia Couples Photographer | Penn’s Landing | Sheila + Chris
I got to be let in on one of the most romantic dates ever. Chris contacted me a few weeks ago and wanted me to get some candids of Himself and his girlfriend, Sheila, going on a date as a complete surprise to her. Chris’ idea was ice skating and I loved it. It was the morning of New Year’s Eve and I got to the River Rink at Penn’s Landing to scope out a great spot to be able to photograph them without being noticed. I sweet talked some of the people setting up fireworks to let me slip into their area for a better view.I had been texting with Chris to get an idea for what they were wearing so that I could spot them coming. I saw them and ...

It wasn’t very long ago that I was contacted by the organization Wish Upon a Wedding to photograph Jared and Stacy’s wedding. Wish Upon a Wedding is a nonprofit wish granting organization that provides weddings for couples facing terminal illnesses and serious life-altering circumstances. There have only been a handful of these weddings in Philadelphia and there are scores of wedding photographers signed up as members so I was truly humbled to be asked to be a part of this incredible experience.Stacy and Jared met at a Nascar race. She was there for the race; he was there for the beer. It started raining and Jared’s group was invited to s ...
