Jess & Mark – The Philadelphia Engagement!

Check out these bangin shots from Jess & Mark’s Philadelphia Engagement Session this past Winter! It was freezing so we stopped for homemade hot chocolate at Franklin Fountain to warm us up a bit. After that it was up to Mark’s hands to warm Jess up!

Anna & Jonas – The Philadelphia Engagement!

Meet Anna & Jonas! I flipping love them! Hard! We started off their Engagement Session at their favorite cafe One Shot Coffee in Northern Liberties. If you haven’t been there, go. It’s has such a great atmosphere and lots of space to hang out. It was such a great place to start off the day! From there we explored their neighborhood and then went by to pick up their pup Charlotte. My dog Benny totally needs a play date with Charlotte, btw. She is the sweetest and could not have cooler parents! Congratulations guys!

Avital & Brian – The Philadelphia Engagement Session.

Meet Avital & Brian! First off, how awesome is the Avital’s name…Love it! Great name and great couple to match! After battling the weather on our initial Engagement Date, we met up in center city Philadelphia and lucked out with a gorgeous August day. It was such a good time walking around the city with these two, from broad street up past the Sugar casino we definitely covered some ground. Congrats Guys, Can’t wait to shoot your wedding!!!

Megan & Brendan – The Wedding.

Meet Megan & Brendan! I love a couple who is into taking pictures and with this couple (specifically Megan) we could do this daily. I don’t believe she has ever met a camera she didn’t like. 🙂 They were married at Saint Bridget Church in Philadelphia, PA. This was a full catholic mass and even at the alter she was ready for her closeup! After our amazing 3 hours of picture time around the city we headed to the reception which was held at the City Avenue Hilton Hotel.

Michelle & Dave – The Engagement.

Meet Michelle & Dave! They are getting hitched later this year in VEGAS! And even though I can’t be there to shoot the actual ceremony (believe me I would if I could) we will be shooting their Wedding Portraits with the entire wedding party back here in Philly when they get home. 🙂
For their Engagement Session we started at Raw Sushi & Sake Lounge, which is this delicious restaurant located off of Sansom Street, where the couple had their first date. Throughout the day we stopped at a few famous areas in Philly like Love Park and Broad St. but it was the in-between moments that really caught my attention. Outside of the Comcast building there is this little common area where a group of trees shade a few lunch tables. I had the couple sitting at one of the tables and I was shooting them from a distance when I read Dave’s lips as he whispered to Michelle right before he kissed her. He said to her ‘I’m so in love with you right now’. Smooth right?! Such a great moment!!!

Kate & Howie – The Engagment.

Meet Kate & Howie. They are going to be married in about three months and counting and I am stoked to shoot their wedding! Howie is not at all scared to get crazy and be a goofy, just to make Kate laugh and it’s written all over her face just how much she loves him. Check out some of my favorites.
