Great Dinner in Philly

Fabulous day and night out on the town in Philly, followed by an amazing dinner at Sbraga (compliments of my amazing kids). It doesn’t get much better when you cap it off with a picture with celebrity chef/owner.  Tremendous!

Blessed to be in Philly

The likelihood of overwhelming crowds wasn’t influential.  The panic ridden media hype wasn’t a deterrent.  The historic event of Pope Francis visiting Philadelphia was not to be missed.  It was, and will be, something to remember.

Engagement Picture Locations – Make It All About YOU

A lot of our clients will ask us for our professional opinion when it comes to picture locations.  Especially when it’s time for their GTKY session.  There are so many different places to go, and while we can always recommend the perfect location, we always suggest that you ultimately choose somewhere that has meaning to you…as a couple.

Your engagement session could be a great time for Save the Dates or maybe used for table numbers at your wedding reception.  In either case, be sure to incorporate something that has significance to the both of you.

Of course, there’s always the time of the year.  It could be that you’re a fan of the vibrant colors during the fall season, or you spend most of your time together down the shore in the summer, or maybe you’d prefer making Snow Angels in the winter months.

Then again, there’s always the location where he asked the question and you said, “YES!”  In an instance such as this, the sky is the limit for places to go.  Citizens Bank Park, that perfect little coffee shop in the city or even at your favorite restaurant while you DO|AC.  These are just some of the many backdrops that make for your ideal engagement session!

So no matter the time of the year, the place you got engaged or if the session incorporates some kind of sentimental “prop”…the most important thing, regardless of where it is, is to be yourself.  That’s what makes your session unique and all about YOU!
