Heather & Mike – The Philadelphia Engagement!

Meet Heather & Mike!! These sexy beasts met up with me on south street next to the Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens with their beautiful daughter who has the most adorable giggle ever! After some sweet moments with the little lady, I took the couple all around the area and exploring all the alleyways and parks, looking for cool spots. I remember loving how attentive he was to her. Helping her walk down the uneven sidewalks and how she clutched onto him, not just for help but because she is his. There wedding is in seconds and I can’t even wait!

Sarah & Buddy – The Philadelphia Engagement Session!

Meet Sarah & Buddy! How freaking cute are these two?! We met up at the Khyber Pass Pub in Old City for a beer and to talk about how crazy the last episode of Game of Thrones was…and yes it was crazy. After that it was time to explore Philadelphia. For their Engagement Session we went all over, from Market Street subway terminal to the beautifully graffitied alleyways of South Street. I have to say though, my favorite find would have to be the mural of the race horses under I95. Freakin LOVE it! They both did so good and I can’t even wait to shoot their wedding!

All Roads Lead to Rome – Part 1.

At least the road that I was on led me there and it was unbelievable! Rome…I love that you will forever be the first stamp in my passport (even if the customs guy stamped my passport on the 3rd page). We rented this amazing little apartment near Campo de’ Fiori, one of the many famous squares in the heart of Rome. During the day it was home to an Italian Market (Just plain Market if you’re yourself Italian) where you could buy anything from pasta to espresso pots. The neighborhood itself had everything you’d want. Tons of shopping, cafes and restaurants to choose from. I think I ate pizza at least once everyday and the wine, OH The Wine! I know I wrote this before but this would be such an amazing place to shoot a wedding or just any couple session really. Every angle looks like it’s right out of a postcard!
I shot over 1600 images so I’m going to have to break this up into a few posts 🙂 Here is a taste of Rome through my eyes.

I Was Born to Love you.

This time last week I was in Rome. That’s so weird to write but I love that it’s true. I would most likely be heading back to the apartment after another jaw dropping dinner, passing one alley after the next that looked like a scene in a postcard. I shot plenty and I’m working on that post as I type this but I wanted to share this image because it really got me excited about this coming Engagement & Wedding Season! I found this on one of those walks after dinner and it, like all the amazing backdrops in Rome, made me want to shoot a wedding there! Any Takers!?!

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!!!
