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!

OLD CITY ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER

By | Engagements | No Comments

 

Melissa and Mark and I had such a fun and relaxed engagement session a few weeks ago. The future bride and groom live on a quaint street in South Philly where we started our session – replicating a familiar walk they take with with their two pups. Afterwards we piled into an Uber and headed to Old City to take another relaxing walk. We went everywhere from the Merchant’s Exchange Building, random alleyways, Elfreth’s Alley, and even to a parking garage rooftop to catch the beautifully golden setting sun. We laughed and talked and had such a great time! I never pressure my couples to do an engagement session but I really do love when they opt in because it’s so much fun getting to know each other and build that connection. I can’t wait for Mark and Melissa’s October wedding!

 

WASHINGTONS’ HEADQUARTERS ENGAGEMENT SESSION

By | Engagements | No Comments

 

Elizabeth and David are another awesome and inspirational couple that I am so excited to work with! They are tying the knot this summer at the Colonial Dames in Rittenhouse which is a quaint venue right in Rittenhouse with the most perfect garden. It is such an incredible and overlooked (in my opinion) venue in Philadelphia. Elizabeth, David, and myself headed to Valley Forge Park this past February for their engagement session. Valley Forge is where David proposed just a few months ago and since we weren’t quite sure of the exact location where he popped the question, we settled on Washington’s Headquarters for our backdrop. I love this location because of the variety but also because it is simple to find and Valley Forge can get very confusing! I loved officially meeting the happy couple for the first time and I am so excited for their summer wedding!

 

OLD CITY AND RACE STREET PIER ENGAGEMENT SESSION

By | Engagements | No Comments

 

I don’t know how I am lucky enough to work with so many down to Earth, fantastic couples! Zach and Abby were such a joy to be around even from our first meeting. Their wedding is quickly approaching this September at the Desmond Hotel in Malvern so we wanted to make sure we did their engagement session as soon as possible… which meant braving some pretty cold weather in Philly! Fortunately they were able to thaw out in Belize shortly after! We kept their engagement session meaningful to their history by stopping at the Race Street Cafe and then wandering through Old City and Race Street Pier, stopping between photos to put coats back on and warm up between shots! I’m sure their wedding day will be much warmer and I can’t wait to be a part of it!

 

FORBIDDEN DRIVE ENGAGEMENT SESSION

By | Engagements | No Comments

Better late than never when it comes to sharing this post! Christine and Devon are one of my wonderful couples for 2019! They will be tying the knot next to very close friends and family this spring at the Hotel Palomar in Philadelphia. We squeezed in their engagement session in Fairmount Park along Forbidden Drive this past fall. Forbidden Drive might be in the middle of Philadelphia but to myself and Christine, it was a bit more nature than we were used to. Luckily Devon knew his way around and managed to move some branches and logs for our photos, and also warned me when I was getting too close to poison ivy! We certainly had a lot of laughs during our little adventure and I can’t wait to see them get married in a few short months!

SWARTHMORE COLLEGE ENGAGEMENT SESSION

By | Engagements | No Comments

I have been so excited to share this engagement session at Swarthmore College! Stephanie and Steve just got engaged this past fall and are in the process of planning their wedding. They were a blast to work with! We laughed throughout their whole session while we wandered the campus at Swarthmore, uncovering great locations for photos. If the sun hadn’t completely disappeared at the end of our time I would have never even guessed we blew threw the entire hour long session. I kind of love that I’m just sharing these photos now even though the gallery was delivered several weeks ago because these two and their genuine happiness, silliness, and love for each other just bring a smile to my face! Enjoy!

OLD CITY PHILADELPHIA ENGAGEMENT SESSION

By | Engagements | No Comments

It’s always awesome when couples want engagement photos. It’s a major bonus when the bride and groom to-be show up perfectly styled! This Old City Philadelphia engagement session couldn’t have worked out any better. The weather cooperated which was rare for the summer we had and the locations were perfect! We started out in Elfreth’s Alley which is close to the couple’s home. I loved exploring areas that they have never visited despite living so close! After a quick outfit change we walked down to Race Street Pier and were able to catch the beautiful pastel sunset. I had such a great time getting to know Chelsea and Tony during our walk around the city and am really looking forward to their wedding at JG Domestic this October!
