Yorklyn, Delaware Engagement Photographer | Private Home | Si + Tanard

Engagement

I have a hard time believing that Si and Tanard ever stop laughing. They can’t even fight without laughing – he will put his finger up her nose. How’s that for romance? They do everything together. From what I can tell, this consists of going for walks, going to bars and restaurants, and watching the League. Tanard will come up with quotes from just about anywhere so you’d better be up on your pop culture references.

Speaking of, these two met in a bar about two years ago. He was wearing a Ninja Turtles shirt; she was in plaid (which Tanard still confuses with flannel). He stared at her for a while, mesmerized, but was too shy to make a move. A friend intervened on his behalf and she walked over to him. Their evening went on to discuss TMNT and short torsos. It was love.

We did their engagement session at Si’s family’s property in Yorklyn, Delaware. The grounds are gorgeous and will be even more impressive this weekend for the wedding.

I can’t wait to see the big barn transformed into a reception.

I was very touched that I got to share part of their wedding gifts with each other. They chose an inscription on each other’s ring and opened them during the engagement session to read what the other had picked. I decided to wait until the wedding day to see the emotional inscriptions.

This weekend’s fete will certainly be something no one forgets. I can’t wait to see the guests’ reaction to such an awesome wedding.

Cassie and Paulo are fun, spunky, and totally in love. They met at a birthday party and she approached him and started peppering him with questions about himself. As the story goes, he ran away but came back later that night and they talked together all night long. I appreciate a chick who sees what she wants and goes after it!Their first date was another marathon – they closed down the restaurant after talking together for 5 hours! Fast forward to a few months ago and Paulo has a plan to propose that gets thwarted by a dress shopping trip with Cassie’s sister. So she comes over to his place one day and he presents her with flowers and a ...

NYC Engagement Photographer | Manhattan | Kat + Dan
3 years ago, Dan showed up to his first date with Kat with a Barnes & Noble bag and four books.  He had a dimple and bright blue eyes.  Kat, an English major and writer, was done for. They will be getting married at Aldie Mansion this December but wanted their engagement session in the place they call home – Manhattan.  They traverse the area for comedy shows, restaurants, movies, and so had a million ideas for where their engagement session should take us. We began in Greenwich Village, taking advantage of cobblestone charm and a beautiful day. We strolled through Washington Square Park where I learned that Kat and D ...
