Mona & George, Engagement

I think we covered almost every major landmark on our engagement session with Mona and George! Mona just took a job out of state, so it meant a lot to them to be able to document Philadelphia and all that places that have meaning for them. We had a great time running around everywhere from Independence Hall to the art museum.

We got around quickly by grabbing a few cabs, which was nice because we were able to cover a lot of ground in very little time! Mona and George - I had a blast, and I hope you did too - and I hope these images will help you remember all the fun times you had in Philadelphia!

Nicole & Duncan - Engagement

A week after Natasha & Tyler's wedding we got to see our friends Duncan & Nicole again for their engagement photos.

As they both grew up in the Medford, NJ area we thought taking a walk around this cute little historic town would be a great idea for their session. Not only did I get my candy fix as I found yet another British food shop unexpectedly but we got to know these two a whole lot better. You guys are awesome! We're definitely gonna get out in Philly one night!

Stacey & Brian - Engagement

Stacey and Brian came down to Old City a few weeks ago to do their engagement session. Since they live by NYC, Laura and I took the opportunity to show them the parts of Philly we love! We got to walk across the Ben Franklin Bridge, hang out by Independence Hall, and some really cool old textured walls to get some great backgrounds for their session. I hope you guys had as much fun as we did!!

Kate & Rory, Engagement

Kate and Rory came down to Old City for their engagement session. It was a great challenge shooting around town at night. It was also a ton of fun to run around trying to find unique light sources.
Kate and Rory were totally up for the challenge too - stopping traffic with a kiss, holding a pose outside "The Continental" (a great martini bar!) and generally just exploring every alley and street that looked like it had potential. Plus Rory is a fellow Brit so we got to reminisce about all the great british food we both miss and no that is not an oxymoron!!

Kathleen & Brian, Engagement

Another great day at the shore! (beach for those of you outside NJ)
Kathleen and Brian met us at Pete & Elda's (THE best pizza in the world!) for a little pre-shoot meal - then we hit the sand and took these fun shots!

I actually photographed Kathleen's brother's wedding a few years ago, so it was really nice to catch up and find out all the new happenings with her family!

Alex & Rachael, Engagement

Alex and Rachael's wedding is coming in March, so we decided to get a jump on their engagement session in August (sorry - I know - very behind on blogging!). We had a beautiful day at the Waterworks... We love shooting there because you can capture so much "Philly" in such a small area! I love this shot with Boathouse Row in the background...

I loved the color that day, but I just thought this image needed a bit of a desaturated look....

And look at how the light reflects in Rachael's eyes!

I was super excited that Rachael and Alex wanted to do a Save The Date (and engagement album!). I just love the simple graphic and layout...

Thank again for spending the day with me! I hope you guys had as much fun as I did!!

Peiti & Dave, Engagement

Peiti & Dave met each other near Old City, so we decided to meet at our studio for their engagement session. The weather and light definitely cooperated! We were able to get these amazing sun-flares

And great backlighting

Peiti and Dave were so much fun and so easy-going we just knew that we would love shooting their wedding (which we did! Blog post to come soon!)

Peiti and Dave loved the images, so they decided to order an engagement signing book - and since we were a little tight on time, we just picked out our favorites to get the layout started. Turns out, our "favorites" folder was the same as Peiti's! And style-wise, Peiti says we were right on target!

Lindsay & danny - August 22nd, 2008

**excuse the changes to the blog, I'm experimenting in actually showing the photos in a decent size.

Laura and I had a great time photographing Lindsay & Danny's wedding. Lindsay started her day in historic Collingswood, NJ and then moved onto the beautiful Scottland Run golf club
We're so sorry we just got around to blogging about it now. We've had an exciting summer thanks to all our great clients!

I got to play with my 50mm 1.0 lens and took this amazing shot of Lindsay's dress.

Courtney and Mike Engagement Session

Hello again! Yes, we are LONG overdue posting to the blog - and we are sorry! We've had a lot of weddings and TONS of engagement sessions lately, so blogging sort of got pushed to the bottom of the list of priorities! But here we are - back in action! :)

Courtney and Mike picked THE best day ever for their engagement session! We met on a Friday afternoon in September. It felt like summer at the beginning of the shoot, with just a hint of fall by the end! We started in Spring Lake and the light was just beautiful!

I love the framing Paul captured with the flowers in the above image...

After Spring Lake, we took a short drive to the beach to catch the last 20 minutes of the sunset...

I think I got a little sea-spray on my lens, but I love all the little round points and light, combined with the lens flare - it just looks like "end of summer" to me!

Courtney and Mike, we hope you had just as much fun as we did! We are so looking forward to your wedding!!!
