Nicole, Erik & I planned their engagement session months in advance. I COULDN'T WAIT. Erik is in a band that travels a lot so scheduling wasn't easy. The day of their session we all waited in our cars for at least 20 minutes waiting for the rain to slow down-still determined to shoot.
I'm so glad we didn't reschedule! I love a good cloudy shoot. I especially love how the blues in their outfits matched race street pier and the general vibe of the weather.
They brought along their pup Ollie! I brought along my partner, Jake, to help hold Ollie and help demonstrate poses.
We walked around Race Street Pier & Elfreth's Alley.
At some point there was a joke about Nicole and John murdering me and leaving me in the woods and this was one of my favorite engagement shoots ever.
What a fun, cool couple. I'm truly happy when I get to work with people that I would be friends with outside of working together! These two were as weird as me and we had a great time.
We started the shoot off during their cake tasting at Queen Bee Pastry! Which was really fun. I always love when there's an opportunity to take part of the shoot inside somewhere, especially when it has a lot of natural light!
We spent the rest of the shoot at the Wissahickon during golden hour, where Nicole and John spend a lot of time together with their pup!
HOLY MOLY I LOVE MY JOB. Lucas and Sara were soooo fun. We met at The Monkey & The Elephant in Brewerytown, which has a super cool backyard area. We walked around the area and went to my favorite Philadelphia bridge. I can't wait to photograph their wedding this fall in Maryland!
