{Engagement Proposal} Murray + Julie Get Engaged at Longwood Gardens | Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square PA Engagement + Proposal Photographer

Every time I shoot at Longwood Gardens, it’s like the first time. I always discover new little nooks. I love exploring the grounds and really, there’s no better way to do it than capturing an actual proposal and then some portraits of two people completely in love. Murray and Julie are such an awesome couple. So down to earth and easy to talk to. It’s like we had known each other for years. I was honored to capture their proposal and I wish them so much love and happiness in their lives together! Here are some of my favorite photos from their session (even though I could’ve shared a ton more!)…hope you enjoy them!

{Married} Lauren + Russell’s Vintage Fairytale Wedding at the Mountain Lakes House in Princeton, NJ | Princeton, Philadelphia, Main Line Wedding Photographer

Lauren and Russell’s wedding at the Mountain Lakes House in Princeton was simply perfect in every way. There were many moments that tugged on my heartstrings and brought tears to my eyes. So much love. So much support for these two beautiful people. The day started with the traditional “getting ready”. Lots of laughs being shared from tie tying tutorials to sisterly giggles. And then the first look with Dad. Oh my. I’m crying just thinking about that moment. It was so incredibly special. Then, when we headed out for Lauren and Russell’s first look, it started to shower! You would think they would be fretting but they were so prepared with their super fun clear bubble umbrellas. Another moment for the books. Following the first look, we did some exploring, found ourselves nestled in the woods. Is it me or does Lauren resemble a Disney princess and Russell is her knight-in-dapper-suit-and-tie?! I have been watching a ton of Disney movies lately with my kiddos, can you tell?! The ceremony was beautiful and their readings were probably the best I’ve ever heard! Giant Jenga and Cornhole were definite crowd pleasers during cocktail hour and reception. We had a lot of fun photographing that! And then, just when you think it can’t get any better, the Nomad Pizza truck arrives. Lauren and Russell are big-time pizza lovers so it was only appropriate for them to have a pizza truck at their wedding reception. Best. Decision. Ever. Their pizza is phenomenal and plus they drive around in an REO speedwagon….what?!?! After dinner, the dancing certainly took off. Boss Entertainment DJ’s knew how to bring the party. Overall, it was a fantastic day/night and I was thrilled to be a part of it all. Here are a good chunk of my favorites from their day. So hard to choose since there were so many awesome moments. Hope you enjoy!
