Phil and Jessica’s Love Story

Phil and Jessica first met in 2010 where they were introduced by a mutual friend at a Halloween party. Over the next couple of years, the two crossed paths several times. However, it wasn’t until a random encounter at Wawa which happened to be Halloween 2012 when Jessica and Phil exchanged numbers. 

Jessica and Phil clicked instantly. Phil fell in love with Jess’s great sense of humor, her creativity, and the fact that she wears her heart on her sleeve. For Jess, it was Phil’s charisma and loyalty. Phil’s ability to make Jess laugh every day is what officially won her heart over. Phil and Jessica’s love story is a classic testament of fate. 

Phil’s Beautiful Engagement Proposal

Phil’s proposal was intimate and simply lovely. He hired a private chef to come to their home and cook their favorite meal. After the chef arrived, the couple’s cute little dog Lou Lou appeared wearing a red  “Will You Marry Me?” bandanna. Jessica was shocked and immediately said yes. Phil immediately got down on one knee and popped the question. Jess quickly said yes. 

After dinner, the couple went out for a few celebratory drinks. To Jessica’s surprise, Phil had arranged an engagement party with all of their immediate family and friends.

Jessica and Phil originally planned their wedding for the Fall of 2020. The couple finished planning their wedding a month and a half after their engagement. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 they had to postpone the wedding to Spring 2021.

Hunting Hills Mansion Engagement Session

For their engagement shoot Jessica and Phil wanted a formal vibe. John provided a list of suggested locations for the shoot and we saw that Hunting Hills Mansion at Ridley Creek State Park. was on the list. This was the perfect place for an autumn engagement session.

Our team of creative photographers played off the architecture of the house, the thriving forest of trees. We captured some shots of the couple’s most intimate moments in the rustic archway in the garden.
