Brrrr! On a cold, winter day Anna, Adam and I met for their engagement session in the lovely center city Philadelphia neighborhood in which they live, Filter Square, chatted, warmed up over coffee and hot chocolate at the snug Gavin’s Café, played with the snow a little, and took their sweet rescue pup Kima for a chilly stroll. I believe my car thermometer told me it was 18 degrees outside! This is where Adam & Anna make their most intimate memories, in their daily routine. And it’s great. Now one might think, WHY would anyone want to shoot an engagement session in these conditions and to this I say, “Why not?” I am such a winter person, I would be happy shooting in the cold all the time! I also love the challenge of working in different and not ideal weather conditions. Late afternoon sun beaming off an earlier snowfall is gorgeous and I loved taking advantage of it to photograph this romantic, easy-going, smart & friendly couple. I am looking forward to photographing their wedding this fall at the beautiful Appleford Estate in the Philadelphia suburbs.

This is where Adam proposed to Anna…

I love this look Adam is giving to Anna. It’s truly his personality!

This is the bar that Anna & Adam first met, called Doobie’s. You can bring your dog. It’s a pretty awesome place. Mental note…

One of my personal favorite places to photograph is Longwood Gardens. and although it is a hike to get to, I always am so happy to be there shooting. Late summer at the gardens never disappoints – well truly, every season is beautiful when surrounded by so many plants, trees and often, gorgeous flowers. With late day sun and a couple of romantic goofballs, I can’t lose, and Lam & Danny and I were loving every minute of being there. What a fun session, and their September wedding is going to equally unique (their ceremony is at the Shofuso Japanese Tea House in Fairmount Park, Philadelphia.) I am excited!

I love how cute they are!

And yes, Lam + Danny are thrilled to announce the new addition to their lives. There’s a baby on board!

Fall and wind and Liz and Andrew. This is where they met, the University of Pennsylvania (and where Andrew is still a grad student). And some shots between the stacks at the Van Pelt Library. We are looking excited for their wedding next spring at the Please Touch Museum…a fun venue for a fun couple!

Food. An integral part of any courtship/relationship, and Liz + Andrew favor this food truck, Hemo’s.

Where they met…the Van Pelt Library at UPenn. It’s such a cool, modern building, and while we spent only a few, fun minutes there trying to be quiet, I love these shots!
