A Philadelphia Engagement Session

I had a blast with Julia and Michael for their Philadelphia engagement session. Julia grew up in the area around the Parkway, and it was really meaningful to her to visit some favorite spots during our time together. It had been a little while since I had a session in the City of Brotherly Love, […]

An Engagement Session at Longwood

One of the beautiful things about an engagement session at Longwood Gardens is that the space is so large. You can’t cover everything in a one hour session. The gardens are also always changing, and therefore, the sessions are always different. As a Wilmington Delaware wedding photographer, I shoot there often – it is right […]

Engagement Session – Brandywine Park

This time of year is so much fun for an engagement session in Delaware. Little green leaves are starting to come out on the trees. The cherry blossoms are everywhere. My favorite blossoming tree is the Kwanzan Cherry. They were actually the inspiration for my logo! A couple of weeks ago we had some really […]

Why an Engagement Session is Important

I hear it often – “mmm we don’t really think we need an engagement session.” It’s an area where I often make a case for why something is more important than couples realize. Part of my job as a professional photographer is to share information and allow clients to make the best decision for their […]

A Snowy Engagement Session

As I type this, it’s sunny and about 60 degrees outside (with a high of 74 today)! Six days ago when I met Courtne and Jon at Longwood Gardens, it was clear that they were going to have a gorgeous snowy engagement session! That’s March in Delaware, right? You just don’t know what you’ll get […]

Worsell Manor Wedding Prep

Over the weekend I enjoyed some freezing but fun time with BJ and Britney in preparation for their Worsell Manor Wedding. I don’t always get to do an engagement session at the actual wedding venue site – it was nice to get to know them, take some great photos, AND plan for their wedding as […]

A Summer Engagement Session

Middletown, Delaware You know that song, ‘Summertime’ (and the Livin’ is Easy)? These hot August days bring that song to mind. I can just hear Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong’s voices belting out the lyrics. When I look at the images from Katie and Mike’s session, I’m also reminded of this song. There are greens […]

A Sayen Gardens Engagement Session

It’s always exciting when you get to explore new places. This Sayen Gardens engagement session on Friday was so much fun and the perfect location for Aaron and Alexandra. I had no idea that these gardens existed – Sayen is definitely a hidden gem in Hamilton, New Jersey. It wasn’t overly crowded for an early […]

A Spring Engagement Session

Wilmington Delaware A Spring engagement session is such a great idea. By this time in Delaware, everything is budding and if you time it just right, you can get some really beautiful cherry blossoms in your background. There is a perfect line of cherry trees on the edge of Brandywine Park by the Todd World […]
