DMac + Colleen [Surprise Proposal]

Capturing a surprise proposal is THE BEST! It's even more exciting when it's one of your friends. The second David (or DMac) called and said he was going to be proposing to his amazing girlfriend of forever, Colleen I jumped out of the chair. Colleen has been living in Manayunk, PA for some time now and is in love with the city (and if you have never been, you should go because you'll love it too). Recently, the iconic Manayunk train bridge was converted into a walking/biking/running/yoga path and Dmac knew this was just the place to pop the question. 

Luckily, I had my trusty up and coming photographer friend Jess in tow. Posing as hardcore runners deep in pre-workout stretching, we stealthily gaged the pass by through our legs. The rest you can check out below. 

So excited for you both! 

Kevin + Lyndsey [Engagement Session]

To my brother Kevin and his bride to be:

Though Kevin isn't my sibling by blood, his three brothers and my three sisters were raised together. For those that know the Nichols/McCormick clan, you've probably seen our bond. I'd even venture to say that we are the closest thing to family that a non-bloodline member could get. So obviously, doing this engagement session for Kev and his beautiful partner Lyndsey, who's more of a sister to us now, was extremely special (for so many gushy reasons I won't list here) but most of all because they are such a piece of me. It was important to capture them as they are: fun, in love and happy.  

Of course the 3 hours that we scheduled on the one day the entire Memorial Day Weekend rained, but a testament to making the best out of any situation. Wouldn't you know we even got a full rainbow. 

I love you K & L!  and to our blog viewers, let us know what you think in the comments! 


Erin + Rich [June 3rd, 2016]

What a great way to launch the new Escaped Studios website. There's still a bunch to do here but we hope you enjoy the below. 

This wedding was especially joyous and emotional for me. Why? Because Erin (or 'Sechrist' as she's always been called) and I have been friends for a realllll long time. There is a reason that Sechrist has 10 bridesmaids and 10 groomsman... it's because she (and her now better half Rich) are incredible friends. 

Always there for you, always there to captain the party, nothing was more heartfelt than having the honor to capture the 27 dresses girl on HER wedding day. 

Erin and Rich what a couple...what a day!!!
