Ashley and Chaz’s story begins in September 2015 at a local park where they were scheduled to go walking around the track with a mutual friend. That friend ran late and Chaz decided to introduce himself. The two decided to start walking the track after the somewhat awkward introduction, and the two have been inseparable since.
Being an active couple, the two often enjoy walking and it is this love of walking that prompted Chaz’s proposal. Per the couple, “The proposal happened at the same park that we first met at in March 2018. After stopping for a quick breakfast and “a busy day ahead filled with errands”, Chaz had the idea of stopping at the local park to walk off some of the food. As we were walking along the track, we were reminiscing on the first day we met.
Ashley who always speaks her mind decided to say, ” It’s such a cute idea for a man/woman to propose to his significant other at the spot they first met. One day when you decide to propose, I don’t think you would do that though because I would definitely be able to pick up on the surprise/proposal.” Little did I (Ashley) know, I had eaten my own words. Chaz then quickly began to complain of his shoe/foot bothering him and mentioned that we needed to get back to the truck. As we started walking back, Chaz had said: “That’s it, I have to fix my shoe here on the track.” Meanwhile, there are runners and a decent amount of people walking the track as Chaz just stops right in the middle of it to “fix his shoe”. While kneeling down and as Ashley was watching for runners coming by, he had then pulled out the ring!”
The two have a love of boats and water, so as we reviewed some popular locations for an engagement shoot, Kelly Drive immediately came to mind. Situated right next to Boathouse Row and the Schuylkill River, it had a perfect nautical theme. Furthermore, it contained the same types of running paths that the couple so often frequent and is similar to the place Chaz proposed. We knew it would be a perfect fit.
The images themselves are bohemian-rustic inspired, incorporating winter colors, flannel, personalized mugs the couple chose and of course iconic pictures featuring the Schuylkill River and Philly skyline. During the shoot itself, I remarked often to myself how easy going and relaxed the couple was which plays perfectly to their wedding theme of beach, marina and nautical themes. The couple hopes to have a relaxed, comfortable and fun atmosphere at the wedding and it is these careful observations of their behavior that I wanted to elicit the comfortable, relaxed nature of their relationship with the images. I chose deliberately casual and playful poses for most of the images as I felt it fit their personalities best.
I, of course, reserved a few epic “dip” shots to feature the grandeur of the Philly skyline or the iconic Schuylkill River, but otherwise kept the session very relaxed and I feel that is communicated well in the images.
