Engagement: Kate + Dan | Bartram’s Garden, Philadelphia
I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter couple to welcome me back behind the lens after my maternity leave. I forgot to mention on here that our daughter arrived safe and sound in September, but I’ll save that for a boring mom post. I was emailing Kate while in labor at the hospital and she was a pleasant distraction from the contractions and ice chips.
Kate and Dan are getting married at JG Domestic, a wedding venue by Jose Garces at the Cira Center Atrium. They wanted an engagement shoot location with a view of the city skyline, so Bartram’s Garden seemed like the perfect choice. It was a brisk morning and the gardens were actually gated off for safety reasons, but we were allowed in thanks to a trusty employee. Kate and Dan braved the windy weather and were a pleasure to photograph.
I can’t get enough of these two. Next October can’t come soon enough <3
