Hey there! I'm a photographer based out of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania who specializes in lifestyle wedding and portrait photography.
Self-taught and college-educated professional photographer who discovered her talent for photography in 2004 while attending the Art Institute of Philadelphia.
When not doing photography, her favorite past times includes being a gamer mom, enjoying new music, or pretending to know how to garden.
It’s Summer here in Philadelphia, and if you’re like me, that means you prefer to stay inside all the time. Yet when I’m not hiding from the horrible heat, I’m outside still taking fantastic pictures of happy couples in the city with engagement shoots. COVID-19 made it impossible to enjoy the beautiful spring weather, and thus we are left with hot and melting Philly days. But despite the weather, engagement sessions are still going strong in Philadelphia, especially for this couple who I have the honor of photographing their wedding in 2022 at the Morris Arboretum!
Benjamin & Kellsey met at work! After four years of being friends, they started dating while keeping it relatively private from co-workers. Eventually, news broke out of their arrangement, and the two have been going strong since. Like myself, this pair is relatively private and likes to keep things simple. Kellsey is a beautiful and funny woman who can make Ben light up like a Christmas tree! These two were so utterly adorable that I didn’t even need to give too many suggestions! I love sessions where couples can just be themselves, and there’s no expectation of being or posing a certain way. Sometimes just being us is the most photographable thing we can do because no one will understand what’s going through our minds except us whenever we look at a photo.
The engagement session in Philadelphia, where we paraded around the pier at Penns Landing, headed to Elfreth’s Alley for gorgeous architecture and old city buildings. After that, it was ice cream to beat the hot weather topped off with a classic shot at City Hall! Kellsey gave me some serious Cinderella vibes throughout the engagement pictures! Beautiful golden hair and a long flowing blue gown? Uhm, yes?! I loved how magical it was!
Overall, it was a fantastic day, and these two were such a joy in front of my camera. Engagement photography is a must-have when it comes to working with me. It’s the best way for us to get to know each other AND do a bit of practice before the big day! I know their wedding is going to be even more mushy and cute. Honestly, I’m not even mad about it! I can honestly say capturing people who remind me so much of myself and my husband is the best part of my job. Who’s going to understand what it means to be lowkey and genuinely better than your awkward nerdy photographer, Sabrina? Well, I’m sure there are others, but I’m the best at being a supreme nerd, just saying!
I’m looking forward to their wedding in 2022!
