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!
I got to photograph Sarah & Rich's engagement photos at the end of July. We got a lucky break from the heat for this one!
We started at their house and then headed into the city. They are having their June wedding at Bok Bar in South Philadelphia and wanted to do some photos close to their venue.
I caaaaan't wait to work with them next year!!!
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!
