Chester County Photographers Meet up | Karen & Kate in West Chester
September 1, 2015
I just LOVE meeting new photographers and it’s even better when you hit it off right away with them as if you’ve been friends forever. This happened with Karen and I. We laughed and talked as if we’ve known each other forever and bounced from one topic to the next without caring that we didn’t finish discussing the last topic haha
Thanks to Jasmine Star’s “The Complete Wedding Photographer Experience” course, a Facebook group page was created for fellow photographers to discuss the course, to build each other up and to help each other grow. A group of photographers from east Pennsylvania ended up creating their own page to support each other locally. Having met through this group, Karen and I have been chatting a lot over Facebook and have been getting to know each other really well. I even referred a West Chester courthouse wedding to her at the beginning of August! (she did an AMAZING job by the way)
Some of the ladies in the group, who live around this area, planned on getting together to meet and take pictures. However, it turned out that Karen and I were the only two who were able to make it. We ended up meeting in West Chester and strolled around for a bit, discovering new places and taking a lot of pictures; because of course, when you get two girl photographers together that’s what happens haha
Two of my favorite places we found in West Chester were Gemelli Gelato and D’Ascenzo’s Gelato! This was my second time trying gelato and I must say, I’m a HUGE fan!!
I got Pistachio and goat cheese/raspberry gelato…yummm!!
I just LOVED Gemelli’s inside decor. So chic and cozy.
D’Ascenzo’s Gelato had beautiful outdoor plants and a gorgeous brick wall.
I had such a great time hanging out with Karen! Here bubbly personality and laughter were so contagious and I walked away smiling. I’m so happy that I have found another friend who shares the same interests as me!
However, I’m kinda sad that she is moving back to her home state, Florida, in October. I hope we are able to get together a few more times before then, because she is such a joy to be around. Check out her work on her site >>> http://nassimbeni.com she does an amazing job and her pictures are gorgeous!
