Jen and Eric - Engagement in Philly
Thursday, May 8, 2008 - EngagementsWell the season is all of a sudden in full swing and we find ourselves bombarded with weddings, engagements and portraits! More yummy stuff for all of you blog followers to ogle at. We have several recent shoots to blog yet, and another wedding from last weekend, but I will get to those within the next few days. Our daily lives have been a bit hectic, and we are sorry if we aren't replying to emails or phone calls as quickly as we normally do. It's funny how all of a sudden as soon as that first wedding of the year hits, you are suddenly so busy you can't think straight! We surely love it and wouldn't have it any other way, just please be patient with us!
Anyway, I am rambling too much about the mundane stuff and not nearly enough about this fabulous couple - Jen and Eric. We first met with these two last August when they made the drive up from Philly (in rush hour!) to meet with us to see if we were a good fit for their wedding. Well we all hit it off from the start and we were so thrilled to do an engagement session with them in their city of Philadelphia. We will be photographing their wedding later this summer in downtown Philly and are waaay excited for it!
For their engagement session they just wanted to take a walk around town and just get what we found. Well we found a lot! We actually almost had to cancel this shoot as the rain literally followed us this day all the way down the turnpike. And I don't just mean rain, I mean huge dark forboding storm clouds! We were sure we were going to get down there and it was going to dump on us, but luckily, it only sprinkied for about 10 minutes or so and totally disappeared. It worked out beautifully for us.
So we ran around town with Jen and Eric, and found lots of well...spring! The pollen was so thick and heavy, and normally Joel and I don't have allergies too bad, but we were jinxed as Jen kept saying all afternoon, "It's a good thing none of us have allergies!" The entire way home in the car Joel and I were sneezing up a storm and felt like we had taken a pollen bath. It was totally everywhere. Jen and Eric were so into each other and so full of great expressions, it was hard not to get good shots. In fact, when they came in with their parents to view their photos last weekend, we all couldn't stop laughing about how many funny pictures of Eric we ended up getting. We just kept catching him making goofy faces. I didn't post a lot of them here (just one or two!) - we picked on him enough last weekend.
Jen and Eric! We loved working with you two and can not wait until your wedding this summer! Now, on to the photos and the mysterious meadow we found in downtown Philly...hmmm....
I think this first photo here is super sexy! What better way to start the session than thrusting our couple out into like 8 lanes of traffic near the Art Museum?
