    Hi Hannah – Here’s our story! Chris and I met at orientation for the University of Maryland and instantly connected. We spent the night wandering around campus and talking with our feet in the fountain in the heart of campus, and even spent a few hours looking for his lost room key (little did I know that I would spend the rest of my life helping my somewhat-absentminded fiancé look for lost items). I should’ve known the universe had plans for us when we were randomly placed on the same hall in the same dorm when school started just a few weeks later. We became fast friends but nothing more for a few months, and he even encouraged me to get out there and meet new people after a rough breakup with my high school sweetheart first semester (typical story, I know). Other people weren’t on my mind, however, and 2 days before Christmas 2007, Chris officially asked me to go steady, and the rest has been history. We love podcasts, dark dramas, exploring cities, foosball, farmers’ markets and food trucks, cooking homemade pasta, eating at new restaurants, running along the Schuykill in the heart of Philadelphia, geocaching, and craft beer, just to name a few. We spent a semester abroad together, traveling to over 30 different places, and have lived in 3 cities since we’ve been together, but have tamed our wanderlust (for now) to settle in Philly. We knew we’d be together forever from the very beginning, but were never in a super huge rush to tie the knot. So in December, when Chris completely surprised me with an incredibly heartfelt and personal proposal, it was so unexpected I could only manage to say, “Are you serious? Really?” over and over before he reminded me that I should probably say yes. Our tentative initial plan for a 2015 wedding went out the window after we got some serious news from Johns Hopkins about Chris’ mom, who has been battling brain cancer for nearly five years, and we’ve jumped full force into planning for a June 2014 wedding instead – all while working crazy consulting hours and buying our first place together at the same time – guess we’re just gluttons for punishment! Anyway, this long rambling story is all to say that while we’d LOVE to splurge on engagement photos, my ever-practical fiancé has reminded me that it may not be the most prudent move, given the whole paying-for-our-own-wedding-while-buying-a-house budget thing. We absolutely love your work, and would really love to have our engagement session done by you!! Thanks for considering us! :)

  • Hannah is one superrad photographer. I’d love for her to take photos of my breathtaking fiance… but lets be real, Michelle Parks has this contest all locked up…

Casady and Bennett definitely win the award for toughest couple!  You can’t quite tell in these photos (because we went to great lengths to hide it!) but it was miserable outside during their shoot!  First it was freezing, and second it was icing.  Oklahoma doesn’t always do snow, but it does ice.

So here’s to a wonderful couple inside and out who are probably still trying to get warm after this shoot!
