Philadelphia Proposal Photographer | LOVE Park | Andrew + Teresa

Engagement

Teresa and Andrew’s romance has been one incredible whirlwind! They both agree that it was something special from the beginning. They live in New York and met online (w00t!) in January, talked on the phone a bit and met up briefly the next night where she mentioned that she had never been to Philly. A few days later they were sharing their “first date” in a road trip together to the city of brotherly love! They stopped at JFK Plaza (aka Love Park) that day but Teresa didn’t feel it was quite right to have their picture taken in front of the LOVE statue. They spent the day wandering around, getting cheesesteaks, and then heading back.

Fast forward to the other week… Andrew takes Teresa back to Philly under the guise that they were going to a picnic for a friend. She had even bought ingredients for some dishes but was convinced not to deal with it.

Andrew knows her so well – Teresa suggested that they go back to Love Park. This was exactly where Andrew had set me up to be for him to bring her back to where it all began and pop the question. Love Park being what it is, there was a guy there hustling people to take their picture. How classically Love Park!

She was totally surprised! Throughout the shoot, she kept saying, “I’m engaged…  I’m engaged!!!”

I had such a blast. Proposal shoots just thrilling and I jump at the chance every single time. The proposal and the time immediately following are just electric. Teresa and Andrew, congratulations! Thank you so much for including me in something so special and amazing!

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”
~ Pablo Neruda

Main Line engagement photographer | Haverford College | Lindi + Michael
This engagement session, and quite frankly the relationship, is pretty pooch-centered. I mean, it’s kind of hard not to fall for a happy, floppy goldendoodle. She was just 9 pounds when they took her home but Tobi, at 50 lbs now and celebrating her 1 year birthday, is pretty full grown with all of the energy that you’d expect.But let me back up to the beginning of Lindi + Michael.Their story is fabulous! They met online (hooray!). Michael noted that she was attractive, charming, and, most importantly, active. Michael messaged Lindi but didn’t have much of a profile up so she (understandably) didn’t respond. Michael had the gall to call ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Chestnut Hill | Stephanie + Nick
Stephanie and Nick’s courtship has been less than traditional. The meeting, first kiss, etc. The second time they went out, he picked on her like a schoolboy (boys only do that to girls they really like, by the way). The day he proposed, Nick picked a fight with Stephanie to throw her off – it was later that evening when they were in the car outside of a restaurant where they were to be greeted by friends that he popped the question. She was so blindsided that she was speechless (she obviously said yes). Time from proposal to wedding is 5 months and yes, it can be done. They’ll be getting married at the gorgeous Glen Foerd Mansion this ...
