Philly Engagement Session

By | Engagements | No Comments

Well I did mention a few weeks ago that I was determined to get caught up on all of my blog posts from 2019 so I guess now is a good time to actually do that! It’s only day 3 of our technical quarantine and I’ve had crazy ranges of emotion going from fear to excitement to depression and anxiety. Let me clarify that the excitement came from a part of me where I enjoy a challenge and looking on the bright side. I thought that home-schooling my kids and involving them in a more simple life would be awesome. Today was a little stressful as I tried to work and entertain my kids. When dinner finally hit I had a bad headache and was just completely exhausted. But then the evening got more simple and I felt better about this whole situation. Sitting down to work on this business of mine which I love so very much, is actually great therapy. I have worked so hard to get where I am and I will not let this get in the way of working hard for my couples and any future couples that book me as their photographer.

Anyhow, now that I’m off my soapbox – let’s talk about how awesome Jamie and Matson are! Oh – and we can’t forget Phoebe, their dog! We had a really great time with their Philly engagement session even though it was one of the coldest days we had all winter! We started at City Hall and then wandered around the area including the Comcast Center, Dilworth Park, and Broad Street. Jamie and Matson are getting married this fall at the Knowlton Mansion in northeast Philadelphia which is not far from my childhood home! I always loved the mansion and I’m so excited to photograph not one, but two weddings there in 2020! The future Mr. and Mrs. are super down-to-earth and a joy to be around! Also Jamie does crossfit like a fiend and is amazing, FYI. I am SO excited to photograph their wedding – even more so now that I have an unexpected slow season now 🙂

Central Park Engagement Session

By | Engagements | No Comments

I’m so excited to finally getting around to sharing Ashley and Jeff’s Central Park engagement session from this past December! The timing of the session worked out perfectly. I had a trip to New York City planned with my family for the weekend to enjoy some of the Christmas activities. Ashley and Jeff were hoping to do their session in New York City so with some cooperation from my amazing husband, the date was set! We decided on a sunrise session so that we could avoid as many crowds as possible since this is New York City, and it was the weekend before Christmas! I learned that weekend that the farther you are from Rockefeller Center the better, so we were in a great spot! We were prepared for a really cold morning but it was actually not so bad and we really enjoyed strolling, and getting lost in Central Park! Not only was the session itself just wonderful but Ashley and Jeff are equally as amazing! We had so much fun trying to read maps, stay warm and befriend all of the dogs in Central Park! I’m really looking forward to their Cafe Madison wedding this year!

New Hope Engagement Session

By | Engagements | No Comments

There is no better way to start an engagement session than with a good drink to loosen up the nerves! Although I’m pretty sure that Jenn and Chris would have had just as good a time even if they didn’t stop for a beer first. Jenn and Chris’ New Hope engagement session was a blast! We started at the Weyerbacher Brewery before wandering the adorable streets of New Hope, talking about their upcoming 2020 wedding. The happy couple decided on the brand new (not even open yet) River House at Odette’s for their venue.

These two are about as genuine as you can get. They were silly, happy and goofing off at every opportunity and they swore that only one picture would actually turn out nice! I disagreed and loved the fun energy they brought to their session. I’m so excited to get to hang out with them again on their wedding day!

Northern Liberties Engagement Session

By | Engagements | No Comments

Fun fact – when couples inquire for wedding photography and we set up a phone call instead of meeting in person I get terrified before their engagement photos! So for whatever reason, I was so afraid to meet Erica and Jason for their Northern Liberties engagement session! But that fear was gone within minutes because they are so kind, down-to-earth, and fun to hang out with. We started their session at Penn Treaty Park where Jason proposed and then wandered the neighborhood! We stopped at the Fillmore, Piazza, and even walked by their future wedding venue – Cescape Ballroom! It was such a nice, relaxing, and chill session. I can’t imagine their wedding day will be any different and I am now super pumped for their day this coming May!

Del Frisco’s Philadelphia

By | Engagements | No Comments

Keli and Michael are seriously awesome! They were looking for a formal, fashionable engagement session. We had great locations in mind only to find that we were not allowed to work there. Del Frisco’s Philadelphia was more than gracious and allowed us to use their gorgeous restaurant space before opening to the public for the day. And what a relief because it was one of the coldest days we had this past fall! After working in Del Frisco’s for about half of the session we ventured out into the cold, pausing at the best locations just to remove coats. And special thanks to my husband Chris for tagging along as my assistant and holding said coats for us! Kely and Michael are a picture perfect couple, kind, and so easy to talk to. I am really looking forward to their wedding at the Loews Hotel this coming October!

Long Beach Island Engagement Session

By | Engagements | No Comments

Stephanie and Kyle’s Long Beach Island engagement session was the perfect way to close out the summer! The Sunday evening drive to LBI was so enjoyable without the typical shore traffic. We started the session at Barnegat Light – Stephanie, Kyle, myself, their dog…and Stephanie’s parents! We took some hilarious photos with mom and dad that I won’t share here but I’m thinking that in the future, if more parents want to tag along to the engagement sessions, it might be awesome!

After we wrapped up at Barnegat Light we made our way to the beach in LBI to catch a gorgeous golden sunset along with a champagne toast! So there are a few things that define me as a person, one of them being how much I love the city and really don’t like nature and/or bugs. The second is that I have a major fear of balloons popping and opening champagne bottles. So when a couple brings bottles of champagne to their session and wants to pop them open in my general direction, I panic. I gave very strict rules to pop those bottles AWAY from my face and just prayed that I got the photos in focus as I cowardly made my body as small as possible so as to not get hit with multiple corks. And it all worked out perfectly.

Thank you Stephanie and Kyle for an awesome session, not hitting me with champagne corks, for running into the ocean, and for doing endless dress twirls. Also, thank you to Mr. and Mrs. S for being good sports 😉

Cape May Engagement Session

By | Engagements | No Comments

Suzanne and Michael had the most beautiful Cape May engagement session just a few weeks ago when summer seemed like it would just continue on, blissfully, forever. It was a big weekend – my 35th (ahh!) birthday, my 12th wedding anniversary, and Suzanne and Michael’s engagement photos. All of that summed up the perfect reason to spend a late summer weekend at the beach. The weather turned out to be just perfect – not too warm, not too cold, and a beautiful glowing sunset to end our session.

The happy couple got engaged just two months prior and knew they wanted a Cape May engagement session since that is where Michael proposed! They acted quickly in booking me and I’m so glad I had the availability! We had a great time wandering Washington Street then strolling through the sand after a quick outfit change. Also…slow clap for Suzanne being able to change from jeans and a top into a gorgeous dress all while inside of their car!

This session was the perfect way to end the summer season and bring on the fall craziness. I only wish that I had done more beach sessions this summer because nothing compares to those amazing sunsets and the way the saltwater makes you feel free and relaxed.

Cherry Street Pier Engagement Session

By | Engagements | No Comments

I met Allison & Eamon at their apartment in Old City to start their engagement session before heading down to Cherry Street Pier for some spontanteous photos and ice cream. Our initial walk around Old City led us through this gorgeous golden light on our way to Allison’s favorite tree. After a quick outfit change and dropping the pup off back at home, we made our way to Cherry Street Pier. This was my first time at the new venue and I immediately fell in love! Not only is the space the perfect balance of industrial design, art, and color, but the happy couple bought me ice cream, which is a win in my book! I can’t wait to see Allison and Eamon again for their September wedding at another one of my favorite locations  – the Reading Terminal Market! Until then, enjoy these warm and romantic engagement photos from their spring time session.

PHILADELPHIA ENGAGEMENT SESSION

By | Engagements | No Comments

 

I recently met up with Kaitlyn and Rob for their engagement session in Philadelphia! We met a little while back in my studio, along with Kaitlyn’s parents and I knew working with them would be a blast. We had a great time just at our initial meeting and I enjoyed getting to know them more at their engagement session. The happy couple are planning their November wedding at the Bellevue so getting outside for some springtime sun and scenery was perfect!
