Crystal and Marissa - A Center City Philadelphia Lesbian Engagement Session

It's been a while since we've blogged but that doesn't mean we've been taking time off!  The last few weeks have been full of sweet engagement sessions, weddings and some of our favorite people!  And I am so excited to be sharing one of those sessions today!  Over the weekend, we had the chance to hang out with some friends, Crystal and Marissa and since our camera was with us, we managed to get these two to let us take a few engagement photos of them.  These two ya'll, are the perfect picture of love and we can't wait for them to tie the knot this summer.  Even with all that is going on in politics and in the news, these two lesbians are just so madly in love that its easy to forget all the chaos when looking at them!  

Crystal and Marissa, thanks for giving me 5 minutes to capture some images of the two of you on the streets around your apartment, even though it was cold and the sun was setting.  Jordan and I are SO grateful for your friendship, that you waltzed into our lives and ever since things are just so much happier.  We adore ya'll and are so happy for you and can't wait for your big day come August!  Enjoy a few of my favorites!  

Debra and Lindsay - A Philadelphia Lesbian Anniversary Session

For many married couples, the day the get married is one of the only times they get photos together until they have kids.  Life gets busy, money tight and photos seem like one of those things that just isn't worth spending the time or money on.  And while I get it, life in all of its seasons ought to be captured.  It goes by so quickly and photos have a way of making us slow down and remember what a particular season of life was like.  Debra and Lindsay are two people that value photos and after being married 2 years, they are still looking for ways to have their love for each other captured!  

On a very windy day earlier this month, Jordan and I got to spend some time with these two walking around behind the Philadelphia Museum of Art.  Debra hand made her flower crown and I loved how well their styled went together for this shoot!  Their love for each other was evident in the first 5 minutes and the two of them were great and posing from the start which made their mini session fly by and still allowed them to get so many great images!  And I mean come on!  The way Lindsay looks at her wife?  Swooning ya'll!  

Enjoy a few of my favorites!  

Lee and Alex - A Valley Forge Park Queer Engagement Session

I can't believe that I will have the honor of photographing these two again in just FIVE days!  Lee and Alex are tying the knot on Saturday at a family farm and last weekend we met up to shoot their engagement photos!  It was so fun getting to this awesome couple as we explored around Valley Forge National Park!  From the moment we started taking pictures, it was obvious that their love is built on a lot of laughter.  And coming from 2 years of marriage, I can tell you that a love that is full of laughter makes for the best kind of life!  But seriously though, these two are so easy going, down to earth and obviously in love that you can't help but like being around them.  

Lee and Alex, I can't wait for this weekend and being so honored to capture the start of this exciting next chapter in your lives.  I am crossing my fingers for the perfect weather and the most amazing day for the two of you!  For now, enjoy a few of my favs and look forward to seeing them again real soon!
