Cait and Jake's Engagement session

“Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.” 
― Anaïs Nin

A little over a year ago I met my friend Caitlin for the first time- You know when you meet a new friend that you know will just become an amazing friend? That is Caitlin. When we first met I knew that she would become a person in my life. I love the Anais Nin quote above. 

 Caitlin is funny, kind, sweet, good hearted. She is an amazing artist. Caitlin got engaged last Christmas to her sweetie Jake. When Caitlin asked me if I would like to photograph their wedding I was beyond happy and excited to do it. 

Caitlin and Jake are just adorable together- Their love is sweet, comfy, and as real and natural as it gets. When you're with them, it just feels like being with best friends. 

For their engagement session, we decided to let the day lead us naturally. We drank coffee, we walked around, we sat on stoops. We walked in the woods, and visited an old greenhouse. We talked and laughed together. 

For this shoot I did a mix of digital and film. 

I am so excited that I was able to have this adventure with Cait and Jake, and I am so looking forward to their wedding next year! 


Heather and Mike's Engagement Session

Heather and Mike are two really awesome individuals- Together they make one extraordinary couple. I really wanted to make sure I blogged their session because it was just so much fun! We really took our time making fun pictures, and all that time really allowed me to get to know these two even more. I loved that. We all have a lot in common, which led to lots of excited conversations ranging from Sia, to Harry Potter, to Cats and Craft beers. It was a fantastic afternoon. We began our session at Heather and Mike's home ( the cutest apartment ever!) and then headed to Norristown Farm Park. I photographedHeather and Mike and their two cats (Grace and Phillip) doing things that feel normal to them - drinking copious amounts of tea and listening to records.

We headed to Norristown Farm Park, chasing some pretty sun. What I thought was super cool, was a big storm was moving in on us as we were shooting. It allowed for some really cool sky moments during our session- Sun pushing through black wall clouds. At times, between the barns and sky, I felt like we were in Kansas. At other moments, like I stepped in to a Andrew Wyeth painting. Maybe it was because it was Halloween Eve. Maybe it was the deep Autumnal Light. It all just felt a little bewitching, and it's during these times that I feel most alive in my work. It was a fantastic day.

Heather and MIke- You two, oh you two are the sweetest. I know your wedding will be amazing.

Happy Thanksgiving friends! Fill your plates with love.
