Barring any last minute changes… this is THE final engagement session of the year! And we couldn’t ask for a better way to wrap up a year of incredible sessions than with a trip to Longwood Gardens in Kennet Square. This was the second time that I’ve photographed at Longwood Gardens and I have to say that I’m still overwhelmed with appreciation and awe of the gardens. We had a great time and to be honest it didn’t really feel like work at all:) I also have to say that the 1000 bloom chrysanthemum was amazing to behold (although very difficult to photograph since there was so many people around).
Lilly & Regis are a fantastic couple:) I had such a great time working with them because they’re so sincere and genuinely affectionate. Regis didn’t even mind being buried in leaves by us;) I love when a couple’s goofyness & playfulness comes through in the images.. Thanks so much for a great afternoon Lilly & Regis. We’re lucky to be working with you and can’t wait for your wedding!
This was the first of our awesome engagement sessions last weekend. Natalie & Dan actually just booked us for their wedding a few weeks before and they wanted to have a fall engagement session, so we didn’t waste any time! They were so awesome to work with and are truly great people to know:) I told Maureen before we started this weekend that I wanted to go ALL OUT with the fall pictures… So we gravitated to the most beautiful fall colors that we could find.
I also loved how excited Dan was to have his picture taken with the Rocky statue (Truly priceless) and their affinity for the Bison statutes in front of the Art Museum. Thanks again for a great Saturday morning Natalie & Dan, we can’t wait to see you two again! Enjoy the images that we created with you.
Here is the wedding of Natalie & Brian in Northeast Philadelphia. They did an excellent job leaving plenty of time for pictures despite all of the driving around we did. Maureen and I started out with Brian and his groomsmen then headed over to see Natalie at the Radisson Hotel in Northeast Philadelphia. After we created some beautiful images at the hotel we took off for the ceremony in Levitown.
We didn’t have a choice but to take their wedding party images in the dark since the sun sets around 5pm these days. It’s very difficult to photograph in little to no light but of course we pulled it off;) Then we headed to the reception back at the Radisson Hotel. Before the wedding party was introduced I took a very special image from the 6th floor shooting down into the lobby. It definitely took some close communication but the final image is beautiful.
Congrats Natalie & Adam and thanks for letting us be a part of your wedding day.
Here are some of my favorites from Lauren & Nicks engagement session. We have been so busy the past two weeks fitting in engagement sessions before all of the leaves disappear… however we have been so happy to be working with awesome people and taking advantage of the beautiful fall colors. I really can’t get enough of the fall;)
Anyways I was able to talk Lauren & Nick into using one of my favorite locations for their session… Sayen Gardens in Hamilton, NJ. Everywhere we turned was a picture waiting to happen;) We also found a red couch in the middle of the gardens as well which we certainly took advantage of. Maybe someday we’ll bring our own furniture with us;)
Thank you so much Lauren & Nick for a wonderful Sunday morning and we hope you enjoy the images we created with you.
