Hunting Hill Mansion Engagement | Janet + Brendan

hunting-hill-mansion-engagement_0001.jpg

Am I allowed to play favorites? Probably not. But. Listen, this engagement session and this couple were such a dream to shoot and work with that I would be lying if I said it wasn’t one of my favorites. Hunting Hill Mansion provided the perfect backdrop for Janet and Brendan’s engagement session on a warm summer evening!

I met up with them on Memorial Day Weekend to capture these portraits ahead of their October wedding in D.C. and I had so much fun getting to know them, chatting about their wedding and capturing their sweet interactions. I love how fun and outgoing these two are. I knew I could be a little bit of my loud, weird self around them and that we would all get along just wonderfully. They have a beautiful wedding planned for The Congressional Club in Washington D.C. later this fall and I cannot wait to capture it!

But for now, enjoy some of my favorite shots from their Hunting Hill Mansion engagement session!

Intimate Philadelphia Yards Brewing Co. Wedding | Bri + Bobby

Philadelphia-Wedding-Brewery-Wedding-1.jpg

I’m so excited that Bri and Bobby are on the blog today! Their down-to-earth quintessential Philadelphia wedding was such a sweet affair and it was an honor to capture it. Truly, truly.

Considering they decided on a November wedding date, the weather was extraordinarily beautiful (with a touch of chilly wind that did gently remind you of the season)!

They chose to celebrate their wedding day with very little fuss and honestly, that’s exactly how I love weddings. Their bridal party was small but loads of fun, their guests sat at their dinner tables for the ceremony (overlooking the brewery at Yards) and their details were meaningful family pieces. Bri wore family heirloom jewelry - including a ring that has been in her family since 1876!

There were personal touches all around the venue including the table numbers, card box and ceremony arch that Bobby made!! Have I mentioned how much I love personal touches?! After their friend, Michael, officiated their short and sweet ceremony, Bri and Bobby danced into the night with their dearest friends and most loving family members.

Congratulations to the new Dr. and Mrs. Gaunt! I absolutely loved walking around the city with you, spending the day with your friends and family and capturing this incredible day. Thank you for the honor of being your wedding photographer.

Enjoy some of my favorites from Bri and Bobby’s wedding day!
