Corinthian Yacht Club Engagement Session | Essington, PA | Kristi & Drew

Earlier this year, I photographed Kristi and Drew’s Corinthian Yacht Club engagement session in Essington, PA!

Kristi and Drew met on their first day as new nurses working in the ER and their first date was on July 4th of that year, they went swimming and then watched the fireworks in downtown Pittsburgh. Drew says he knew Kristi was the one when she swept him off his feet by making buffalo chicken casserole! Kristi says it was when Drew had driven five hours from Pittsburgh to Philly with a 12 foot ladder so he could change her lightbulbs for her after having the flu.

Kristi and Drew's Corinthian Yacht Club Engagement Session in Essington, PAEngaged on 05/18/2019, the proposal from Kristi: “Drew did a super impressive job coordinating all of the moving parts for what I thought was just a weekend at the beach. He made sure my aunt knew and my Dad and sister would be there the next day. The week of, he wanted to “practice flying the drone” which wasn’t suspicious since he often takes pictures with it at the beach. The day of, I (unknowingly) helped coordinate the proposal by suggesting we go to the north end of LBI to see the lighthouse to fly the drone. All was going smooth until we saw no drone signs everywhere. So we get out of the car and Drew is marching around the park with his tripod looking like he’s going to complete his last mission on earth. I wasn’t sure what was happening but eventually he put the tripod down to “focus” the camera so he could get some pictures of us. He ended up getting a great video recording of the entire proposal with a beautiful scenery.”
