We had such a wonderful adventure during Carly and Adam’s engagement session.

We hit all the best spots in South Philly. From Bookbinder’s to The Victor Cafe and finally finishing at the famous Italian Market.

The pale lilac mixed with a dash of the golden afternoon light + a sprinkle of one of the loveliest people I have had the pleasure to work with, Mrs. Ashley Meyers was perfection!!!

This shoot was inspired by the paintings of Andrew Wyeth. I love the light that inspires him and the use of muted tones.

It was very fitting that we did this shoot with some of my favorite light that I get in my home. Specifically my attic.

Best piece of advice for how you help be supportive of your spouses business:

I remind myself that this more than a business for my wide, this is a part of her identity, part of who she is and how she sees herself in the world. This business fills (in addition to being a mom) a sense of purpose. When I remember that, then the sacrifices she makes and we make as a family are easy to endure.

I am so grateful for the woman who have made these inspired fine art portraits possible.

For this shoot I really wanted this piece to stand out, hence the more monochromatic set design in the studio. I love the texture it gives without competing color wise with the dress.

Emily thank so so much for coming in and shooting with me.
