If you’ve been following my blog then you might recognize these two lovely ladies from our portrait session in Asbury Park, NJ almost exactly two years ago – you can see it here in case you missed it! You can imagine my excitement when they contacted me again for their official engagement photos! I was absolutely thrilled to hear not only that Mandy had proposed to Michelle, but that it was a complete surprise! Â The big event happened at the Ritz Carlton, Philadelphia, so it was only fitting that we start their *official* engagement session there. These down-to-earth beauties are an absolute joy to photograph, not only are they naturally gorgeous but their mutual love is just as natural and genuine. I already can’t wait to photograph their wedding, we’re all crossing our fingers for 2014 when hopefully everyone will be allowed to marry the one they love. Until then I hope these photos bring a smile to your face and warm your heart – that’s just what they did for me!
