FDR Skatepark Engagement Session – Jennifer & Sean

I’ll let you in on a little secret – when I was younger I used to dye my hair all sorts of crazy colors. When I first pitched the idea to my mom that I wanted bright pink bangs to offset my jet black hair, she looked at me and said “Are you sure? You’re going to look like a rockstar.”

Robert Smith was a huge hair inspiration for me – yeah, big ol’ messy black hair was my jam, and I remember thinking “You can look like one without being one!? Yes, I want that!!”

While my days of wild hair are a thing of the past, I fully understand the feeling of wanting to dress like a total badass.

When Jennifer told me of her vision for her engagement session with Sean in South Philadelphia’s FDR Skatepark (complete with a leather jacket and black tulle skirt), I instantly understood the vibe she wanted. A real rockstar session. Since Sean has a love of skateboarding, this grungy graffitied location made perfect sense, and on a hot Summer day, we made some magic.
