Tom & Erin’s Proposal!

Posted on February 2, 2020

Tom & Erin are engaged! And OMG, this was one for the books! Tom found me through doing a search for proposal photographers in Philadelphia – since I guess I’ve done this a few times…what can I say, I like hiding in the bushes and being a photo love ninja. ūüôā
It was all planned out – we even met 2 days before to do a little walk-through on picture-perfect Addison Street of what would happen, what trees he’d stop at to kneel down…the whole thing. He managed to plan everything without Erin knowing, which was a feat because this girl is on it! Erin has an incredibly awesome and popular food blog and instagram called https://www.erinliveswhole.com/. Tom, in turn, has a parody account called “Tom lives full.”
Erin and Tom met at Penn State University through a childhood best friend while in college. Three years later they reunited when Tom invited Erin to an ugly sweater party in Philly of December 2015…hoping on a whim to catch up as a group with some mutual friends. They hit it off that night, and haven’t gone a day without talking since! They were official by the next month and have been together for exactly 4 years before proposing 3 days after their 4 year anniversary and one day after her birthday! She had NO idea it was coming, which was the best feeling ever for both of them! Tom, you really such an amazing job!
Erin was so expressive, so surprised and so adorable in every way. Tom organized both families to be there soon after, and even threw an after party only blocks away at Lou Birds where the rest of the family and friends were waiting! Erin and Tom, it was an absolute joy to be part of this amazing moment for you both. The whole thing was just full of happiness and joy. So so happy for you both!!!

Rebecca & Warren – Pennsylvania Museum of Anthropology

Posted on May 30, 2017

I’m in the mood to spread a little love today. Reflecting on just over a year ago when I had the very awesome privilege of shooting Rebecca & Warren’s wedding at the¬†University of Pennsylvania’s – Museum of Anthropology in Philadelphia. This wedding was nothing short of epic moments throughout the entire day. These two are both such beautiful people, inside and out. I loved their classic and stunning attire. I loved their expressive and amazing friends and family, who are all clearly the most perfect reflection of them. I loved their heartfelt and absolutely jaw dropping beautiful vows, reaching deep into each others’ raw hearts for all of us to hear and see. Their wedding day was the same day as the Kentucky Derby…and…

Charlotte & Brian gave me so many amazing opportunities to take unique and beautiful photos every time we were together. From their engagement shoot in Hickory Run State Park, to an amazing day at the Philadelphia Racquet Club and a stroll down to Rittenhouse Square , to their sweet and emotional vows, ¬†photography has always been really important to them, and of course, that makes my heart sing! It was a beautiful day, and they were just so so so so so so happy. I’ve never seen a dress move like Charlotte’s – it flowed through the air like a dream, so dancing throughout the day served the purpose of amazing photos and practicing their epic first dance. But I think my favorite dance of all them was the one they did at the end of the night on Broad Street! Holy amazing you guys!
Charlotte and Brian, thank you so much for inviting me to be part of your story.

A Christmas Proposal – Ryan & Meghan

Posted on January 2, 2015

My heart was beating so fast as I kept looking toward the South entrance to city hall. With two huge lenses hanging from my side, I clearly had a purpose, but somehow kept getting in the way of all the folks trying to take their yearly selfies and portraits in front of the Christmas Tree. Another text……they were parked and now walking! I had my perfect shot all set-up, but a large group of tourists happen to step into my composition as Ryan and Meghan stepped through the South entrance to City Hall. They were SO cute. I suggested he take some deep breaths, chat a little while I move around upon their arrival. Ryan told me he had asked Meghan’s parents for permission…

Ben & Marie

To find the one that compliments you, that loves what you love, that wants to walk alongside you in life. And climb rocks.
Ben & Marie are an incredibly active couple. Besides climbing, they are bikers, runners and avid and amazing ultimate frisbee champions. Capturing the essence of my couples is always my goal, but it gets tricky sometimes…although I’m always willing to go to great lengths to do it.¬† We actually hadn’t solidified all the plans, but when they both got out their climbing shoes at the base of the trail to Forbidden Drive in the Wissahickon woods in Philadelphia, I knew we were off to a good start. Ben & Marie are both from Philadelphia area, so shooting in a place that they love and have spent time rolling over the trail or bouldering the rocks was a great choice, not to mention absolutely beautiful.
These two are such a great match, and I’m so excited to be shooting their wedding in two weeks at the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia. It’s only fitting that people who love to climb rocks would want to throw a big party with the dinosaurs.
