Why I Love Photography

I love photography. I love it because of the places it can transport us to. I’ve been through boxes and boxes of my family photos, and each time it’s a new journey. Am I going to St. Thomas to experience my parents’ honeymoon through their eyes? Will I be helping

Tips For Capturing the Perfect Proposal

Proposal season is upon us, and capturing the “Will You Marry Me?” question has become one of the major life events worthy of documenting. At JPG, we are typically part of 10-15 proposals every year. Here are some tips to help plan the perfect proposal. 1. Location is key. We suggest proposing somewhere slightly

The Picture Perfect Portrait Session at Longwood Gardens

As one of the most famous botanical gardens in the United States, Longwood Gardens is one of the first places that come to mind for “beautiful portraits outdoors complete with a garden in the background that I could pretend is my own but could really never have”. Don’t worry. We’re

Reasons to Come to Manayunk for Your Engagement Portraits

Manayunk is worth the trek. Full disclosure: we’re a little biased when it comes to talking up our neighborhood. We think the combination of bridges, tow path, trees, architecture and all the secret spots make it one of the best places to explore and take stunning engagement portraits. In case

Genevieve & Owen’s Sunrise Ocean City, New Jersey Engagement

Jincy & Snoben’s Franklin Institute Proposal

Proposal stories are the best.

Caitlin & Ryan’s Center City Engagement

Photographing Caitlin and Ryan was easy from the get-go.

Emilie & Jamar’s Manayunk Engagement

Jackie & Nicole’s LGBT Headhouse Square Engagement

  It’s easy to say which part of Jackie and Nicole’s LGBT Headhouse Square engagement session was my favorite. It was towards the end of their shoot when we composed a few frames along Philadelphia’s historic cobblestone streets. The brides-to-be embraced while framed by the pristine American flag in all

Kate & Zac’s Magic Garden Engagement

“It was right over here,” Kate said as she led the JPG Photography team towards one of the many colorfully tiled staircases at Philadelphia’s Magic Garden on South Street, “This is where we took a picture together on our first date.”  Kate and Zac sat down on the same stairs they
