From the Photographer

Meg and Chris had an epic city hall engagement shoot. It was complete with the infamous “Broad Street Bride” shot, a pit stop at The Union League and finishing at Rittenhouse Square with a pop of champagne. Inside City Hall, there are so many little spaces to shoot, the opportunities are endless. As we walked from City Hall towards Rittenhouse Square, I noticed the City had put up some Christmas lights in the trees already, so I decided to incorporate them into the shoot. Meg and Chris will wed September 5, 2020 at Downingtown Country Club. We can’t wait for their special day!

Let’s start at the beginning. How did you two first meet?

We met at a mutual friends NYE party. Years later we reconnected on social media, from there the rest is history!


What makes your relationship special? Tell us some things that you both value in your time together. What makes your relationship unique?

Our relationship is unique because we love to do the simple things together, watching TV shows routinely, enjoy pizza on Friday, etc. We also are each others biggest cheerleaders through life.


How did you know your partner was the one? When did you first know this in your relationship?

I knew Meg was the one when she came down the train station steps to go on their first date! Meg knew the same moment too!


Give us all the details about the proposal. How and where did it happen? Was it a surprise? What was the planning process?

Chris proposed at their home in Media, PA on July 5, 2019! Meg and Chris were getting ready to go out to dinner for the big night to come and naturally, Meg couldn’t find anything to wear. Chris wasn’t going to wait any longer and said he had something for her that would “Always match anything!” Then, she turned and he was down on one knee!


We’re all about the bling… Tell us all about that ring!

Chris custom made the ring with our jeweler in about four weeks time! All of our bling is from BarryJays in Springfield, PA.


What are you most excited about when it comes to your wedding planning?

We are excited to have everyone we love in one room! That is not often it happens and the day will be filled with loved and excitement!
