Are you ready for your engagement session? Having photos that illustrate the love you have for each other is a profound way to express that love you have for each other and the relationship you cherish. An engagement session is such a great way to meet your photographer that will eventually photograph your wedding. Meeting couples and spending time with them is so valuable. Capturing those memorable moments in a couples life is a privilage. I have been photographing couples throughout New Jersey and the Philadelphia area for over a decade. As a husband and wife photography team, we have discovered that we have a sincere understanding and appreciation of our clients and how they want to be photographed. Photographing in a way that brings out their personality. Not only are the photographs important, but having an excpetional and relaxing experience is how a session should be. There has to be a level of trust and comfort with your photographer. It also depends on the skill level and communication skills of the photographer.
Our goal is to provide you with a complete narration of your engagement through our photography. It is a way to tell a story of life events in a meaningful and contemporary way. I truly enjoy capturing a story as it unfolds.
Philadelphia has so much character and charm with its tall structures and historic buildings. It has a facet of cultural division, but yet it is all intertwined giving you the ability to travel short distances and have those engagement photos taken that best match your personality and style. The pier near the Benjamin Franklin Bridge has breath-taking scenes along the stretch of Penns Landing. You have restaurants that stretch throughout the Delaware river that can be used as beautiful backdrops such as the Moshulu, Charter House and The Lodge at Blue Cross RiverRink just to name a few. Travel back in time by just enjoying locations within center city with its rich history. Engagement photos at the Philadelphia Museum of Art is another prime example of a few ways to capture special engagment pictures with its splendid architecture and grand steps in front of the museum. We have also taken engagement photos at City Hall, Logan Circle, the Love Park, Rittenhouse Square Park, Washington Square Park and Fairmount Park. Just outside of Philadelphia at Kennett Square is Longwood Garden is another wondferful location for engagement photographs. Longwood Garden is open all year long and it has so much to offer.
This gallery contain just a few engagement photographs that I have captured these past couple of years. They represent the fun and enjoyment each couple had while I photographed them. Some of these photos were taken in New Jersey and some where captured in Philadelphia or within the vicinity of the city. This collection of photographs are just a few of my favorite images that I fondly remember capturing with couples who simply had a wonderful time. A few of the couples already have already had their wedding and a few are planning on having it soon. I am honored because each of them have selected my photography studio for their wedding.
I am located in New Jersey and many of our couples either live or come to New Jersey to enjoy what the state has to offer for engagement photos. I spend much of my time photographing engagement sessions throughout New Jersey. South Jersey has beautiful locations where couples can have their engagement session. From the vast number of parks to the splendid shores at places like Cape May, Ocean City, Sea Isle, Wildwood, Avalon, Stone Harbor, Brigantine, Long Beach Island, Beach Haven and Barnegat Light just to name a few. We have photographed couples at various marinas up and down the Jersey shore. There are times when I will ride along with them on their boats or simply photograph them on their boats while it is docked. We have had couples photographed at some lovely wineries as they enjoy their favorite drink and walk along the splendid vineyards. New Jersey has a variety of beautiful vineyards that are great locations for engagement photos such as the Renault Winery Resort, Valenzano Winery, Cape May Winery and Willow Creek Winery in Cape May. We have also had the pleasure of photographing couples at Sayer Garden in Hamilton Township and locations throughout Princeton, including Princeton University with its beautiful buildings and structures. Cooper River Park is also a wonderful location to have your engagement photograph taken. There are also so many locations near our studio. The local parks and lakes also lend itself as great engagement photo spots. If you are thinking of having portraits of your engagement, we have a beautiful studio where we will capture some formal engagement portraits before heading out to your favorite location.
When we photograph a couple, we take into account their personalities, their likes and dislikes. We also take into consideration the time of year or season that they prefer to have their photos taken. Sometimes the middle of the summer is just way too hot so we suggest you have your engagement photos taken during the spring when the flowers are blooming or in autumn when the leaves are changing color. Depending on the time of year, the foliage can definitely enhance the scene and mood of your engagement photographs. We are always open to your suggestions and we love to capture your vision. If you wish to travel and go beyond the local area, we are open to your suggestions as well. We have photographed engagement sessions at the Pocono Mountains, Central Park in New York City, Delaware and beyond just to name a few.
