Anna - An Edgy Lokal Hotel Philadelphia Boudoir Shoot

Anna-90.jpg

I remember reaching out to Anna and asking if she would be willing to model for me while I was shooting my summer boudoir marathon at Lokal Hotel and was THRILLED when she said yes.  Often my clients choose to not allow me to share their images online so whenever I can I try to work with a few models here and there so I can show new work and I knew that I wanted to show something a little edgier and darker this go around!  This burlesque meets massage therapist meets bombshell is not only stunning but so down to earth and sweet too!  She worked it for me from the moment we started shooting and I love how these images turned out!!!

Anna, you are seriously an incredible woman and I am so grateful you trusted me to photograph you!  I can't wait to shoot you and that adorable girlfriend of yours Siona together and am ever grateful for your willingness to come play with me!  Enjoy a few of my favorites! 

Ps.  Wanna come play at Lokal Hotel with me too?  We have just ONE date left in November before the holidays for boudoir shoots and then thats it till January!  Message us today to secure your spot and give yourself (and someone you love) the best gift ever this holiday season!  Sessions are on sale now and won't last long!!! 

Gabby and Brooke - A Philadelphia Gayborhood Proposal

Well, I originally had no plans of blogging any of the photos from yesterday for a bit but as soon as Jordan mouthed the word "ring" to me, I knew that all had changed.  Gabby responded to a model call I put out about needing several LGBTQ couples to photograph this past weekend for a little something I am working on and I was so excited to photograph her again!  AS we started walking with them toward their location, I caught Jordan mouth the word RING to me and all of sudden my brain went into rapid mode trying to figure out how I would signal Brooke that I was ready for her to propose.  Somehow it all worked out perfectly because when I asked Brooke to do the most romantic thing I could think of (something I ask all of my couples at the start of their session) she took a step back, reached into her pocket and dropped to one knee.  Gabby couldn't believe she was proposing but the look of joy on her face says it all. 

We spent the next 3 minutes photographing them around the "gayborhood" section of Philly in some of my favorite locations and they literally couldnt stop smiling.  Gabby kept staring at her ring, asking all the questions about how long she had it and who picked it out!  Brooke perfectly picked out with the help of few of Gabby's favorite people, a stunning art deco inspired, princess cut engagement ring that was beyond what Gabby had hoped for.  It was perfection. 

So while I am not sharing why I asked these two to model in the first place just yet, I am THRILLED Brooke decided this would be the perfect time to propose and that my wife is always on it when it comes to making sure I know the details!  Brooke and Gabby, I adore the two of you together and am so so excited for you.  You so clearly love each other and I know this next season of your life will be a beautiful one as you plan to become wife and wife.  Love love love to you two!!!

Meg and Tim - A Manayunk Philadelphia Summer Engagement Session

It's funny how some locations I never shoot in and then all at once I'll have 3-4 sessions in the same location within a few weeks!  This summer that has been the case with Manayunk Philadelphia!  I shot around main street Manayunk several times and so when Meg and Tim wanted to do their shoot there as well, I knew I had to find new favorite spots to shoot these two in.  And oohhhh did we! 

Meg and Tim brought their cute little pups for a few photos and then we wandered around side streets, the riverwalk and these two stole sweet little kisses along the way.  I LOVE the way Tim looks at Meg, and how easy going these two are.  They were so fun and easy to photograph and I loved getting to hear more about their wedding plans as we walked around.  These two tie the knot next fall and I just know it will be a beautiful day because of the love they have for each other.  And for me, that's my favorite to capture of all. 

Meg and Tim, thank you for choosing me to be the one to photograph your wedding day and this season of your lives.  I love so many of these images and I can't wait till next year for you two to finally be husband and wife!
