Valerie and Greg (A quick glance)

Greg and Val found me through their cousin’s wedding a few months earlier and just like Ashley and Mike, we seem to jive immediately. The day that Greg was scheduled to leave town for two months (work related) we were able to squeeze in a sunrise engagement session. We started at Race Street Pier and continued exploring Old City, Philadelphia. While it’s far and few between, I really love sunrise sessions. The quality of light is great and the foot traffic is usually less. It was an interesting setup for me to witness- how were the emotions of them being separated for that length of time mixing with the nervousness of having their engagement session photographed? It seemed to bring out a cute, romantic side. While those images will be included in their gallery for them to see, here are some of my favorites from the day…
Thanks for taking the time to view.

Brittany & Ren Engagement Session

Brittany and Ren had their engagement session at Johnson’s Corner Farm in Medford, NJ. They were silly, fun and really into each other; which made it fun for me to photograph. We took a tractor ride out to the orchards, got to trek through the pumpkin patch, and even utilized the playground a bit. This session was shot last summer and their wedding, which was held at Brigalias in Sicklerville, NJ will be the post that follows. We had a beautiful fall day with an emotional crowd that was really supportive of their marriage, as everyone celebrated and partied on Halloween.

Thanks for taking the time.

Ashley & Mike Engagement Session

While we’re playing catch-up on the blog postings, I wanted to get this in prior to their wedding this summer. I met Ashley and Mike at the Smithville Mansion in Marlton, NJ, along with her wonderful parents and pooch. We took a few with their dog and then wandered the rest of the mansion as just the three of us. They had a few props that we worked in and it was really cool to get to know them along the way. I found out that Mike is an artist and likes to display his artwork. I love when people open up and share their passions, as it helps me photograph the “true” version of them. As a couple, they were cuddly and cute and they let me into their world for a bit. Some couples choose to pass on engagement sessions, which is sad because it helps both parties learn more about each other, and it really makes the wedding day more comfortable and easier. Here are some of my favorites from their engagement session.

Thanks for viewing!

Dana & Bobby Engagement Session

We met, on a gorgeous winter day, in center city Philadelphia. We started at the Lowes hotel on Market street, walked through City Hall, down to Rittenhouse Park, stopped for a drink at Devon and finished on Broad street. It was a great day, good day to walk, great to get to know this couple and awesome to photograph them. Dana and Bobby ooze their love and it was great to be let in for a bit and to document them out & about in the city, as they like to be.

Ashley & Mike

We had a gorgeous, fall day to roll around the grounds of the Smithville Mansion for Ashley & Mike’s engagement session. The sun, leaveas and weather played along perfectly. Ashley’s parents helped bring their dog, so he could join in for a few. Here’s a couple that grabbed my attention as I was scanning through. Love this time of year!

Erin, Jason & Jabo

We photographed Erin & Jason’s engagement session just about two years ago, in November of 2013 They picked a great spot, where they could bring their dog Jabo. Often, dogs can be tricky to photograph, as they’re not very good at reasoning with “if we just take a few minutes of photos….”. However, Jabo was awesome! I’ve sat on these images, like many, thinking one day I’ll share them. Today, through Facebook, I saw that Erin and Jason lost Jabo. Despite their wedding occurring this past June (as you can see from their save the date props), I thought today is a great day to finally share some of their images we captured with Jabo. I hope these images last years, so Erin and Jason can keep Jabo close to their hearts. Thanks for taking the time to view.

Katie and Ross

Many couples ask if an engagement session is necessary. My answer is consistent: It’s not necessary, but it definitely helps to see how each side works. I get a sense of how a couple interacts (who’s the goofy one, are they affectionate…), and they get a chance to see how I handle the photography. I feel this eliminates the feeling out process on their wedding day. With Katie and Ross, their engagement session was the first time I had a chance to meet face-to-face. It was enjoyable to learn of how they met, the details of their engagement and what’s going on in thier lives as they plan their wedding. I’ve shot at Wissahickon park a few times, and it’s nice. Huge. But, this was my favorite time shooting there, as we stumbled upon an area I didn’t expect. It’s refreshing to find something new in a place you think you know so well. Katie was a bit nervous, understandably, but once we started she was the perfect subject. Ross was cool, relaxed and sweet. I had a blast with them, but we all knew that after our find near the creek-we had what we came for, photographically. It was a rewarding session, getting insight into how they work and I’m super excited to document their wedding.

Emily & Jeff

Last summer I was asked to meet Emily & Jeff in Philadelphia for their engagement session & to photograph their wedding a few months later. I really enjoyed every step with them. Jeff was funny and caring. Emily is so easy going and beautiful! Below are some of my favorites from both days. Images courtesy of Intrigue Photography

Deb & Greg (and Blue!)

I’ve known Deb since I worked at her family’s peach packing farm/plant, when I was still in high school.  Her wedding is next week!  We met at their place in center city, Philadelphia.  I had a chance to get to know Greg a bit and even win over ol’ Blue prior to our session.  We wondered the gorgeous neighborhood a bit and played in the park with the pooch.  It was great practice for their wedding!  Even a bit more unique was that the next day I photographed Deb’s sister, Lisa’s, wedding!  I always enjoy being around the DeEugenio family and I look forward to the final sibling wedding next week.  Bitter sweet.  Here are some of the photos Deb & Greg selected to share on their wedding day: All images courtesy of Intrigue Photography

Steve & Janet

My cousin Steve called me to photograph his wedding a few months back.  After discussing some details with he and Janet we decided to find a time to catch up and have some fun “practicing” for the big day.  We ended up with a perfect fall day.  It’s been some time since I’ve seen Steve or Janet, so it was good to have an excuse to spend some time.  The majority of my memories involving Steve are from when I was probably in my early teens.  For the past 10-15 years we lived a few states apart and each had things going on.  But, at points during photographing him with Janet I saw that little/big kid with a deviant smile, but with a big teddy bear heart.  He is the comic relief in the relationship, no doubt.  It was good to see him in love.   Janet, having experience from the other side of the camera, seemed to be a natural- and is no doubt all about Steve.  Here are some of my favorites….
