From The Bride...I wanted our photos to reflect who we are as a couple, but also be timeless at the same time. We both love the outdoors, as well as the beach. I love magical garden environments, flowers, cool mountains, rocks, succulents, pretty much anything outdoorsy. We are getting married at Terrain, the Anthropologie wedding venue in Philadelphia, and am envisioning a very boho-garden inspired wedding, so thought would be great for the engagement session as well.

From Hello Blue Photo...The couple also wanted their dog, Chloe, because she is such a big part of their lives. They even had a floral collar made for her for the session. Ryan and Sara were so laid back, and super easy to shoot! Their chemistry really came through on the film, and they were thrilled with how they turned out.

One of my favorites parts about the session was that Sara brought basically her "Girl Squad" with her! She had Aimee, a childhood BFF and her make up artist, doing touch ups on her hair and even changing her lip color throughout the session which was amazing for me, because her make up was perfectly on point the entire time! And, she also brought another BFF to help take their dog, Chloe, on walks and entertain her when she wasn't needed! The girls brought champagne to kick off the session and help the couple relax which ultimately made for an easy, super romantic, cuddly session! I wish I had Sara's #girlsquad to follow me around everywhere!
