I could have listened to Christina tell their story all day. They’re Texas natives and foodies with all the splendors of Philadelphia to feed their every need and want. She does regular yoga and they ski on the weekends whenever possible. Okay well, Christina skis and Ben humors her because he loves her. They travel the world and have fabulous families but at the end of the day, it’s as simple as they LOVE each other. Ben seriously couldn’t stop kissing her. If you ever wondered what it is like to be adored, ask Christina.
It was my first time shooting in Philadelphia. So, to ensure I could focus on creating beautiful images for Christina and Ben and not get distracted by trying to drive in and find my way around or get hit by a bus while looking for the best lighting options, I called in the big guns…..the photographer I called for MY wedding…none other than Valerie Buller, owner of Rough Coat Photography. She graciously agreed and laughed her way though my anxieties over jaywalking and weaving our way through city traffic. She is both an AMAZING photographer and a beautiful soul. Thanks Val. 💕
Christina and Ben showed us their wedding venue, where they both used to live, her yoga studio, their first date location and his favorite restaurant. We meandered through Rittenhouse Square and made time stop on the median in front of City Hall. Magic. Their July wedding at the Free Library of Philadelphia is going to be amazing. From the venue that’s “not a venue” to the rooftop reception location, it’s going to make my photographer heart explode with anticipation.
Christina and Ben, it was such a pleasure to finally meet you in person. Thank you for sharing so many memories with me yesterday. You are a lovely couple and I’m so grateful you contacted me. Your wedding day is going to be a dream come true and I can’t wait to capture it for you. Until the full gallery is ready in a few days, I hope you enjoy this sample of my favorite photos from your fabulous engagement session. And, because I know how hard it is to wait to share some, there are a few surprises waiting for you in your email RIGHT NOW so go check!!!! XO – Megan
