Carolyn + Jeremy: Engagement Session at UPenn

Engagement

I met with Carolyn and Jeremy the other week at the University of Pennsylvania, where Carolyn went for undergrad, for their e-session. She had given tours during her tenure there so we got a great walk around the campus. Carolyn is from the Philly area though the couple now lives in Boston. They’ll be celebrating their wedding in April at St. Thomas Church of Villanova and Philadelphia’s Down Town Club.

We started by the Fisher Fine Arts Library to warm up from the blustery day. Who knew they had stairwells like this?


It was chilly, but really, who cares?


It’s a fantastic campus and I learned a great many things about these two: Jeremy’s brief stint as a model, the marathons and half marathons they do for kicks, Carolyn’s apparent love for trashy TV during serious life moments, Jeremy’s inability to finish cheesesteaks (for shame!)…




I believe the pickup line was “Are you tired? Because you’ve been running through my head all day.” Always a winner.


So Jeremy proposed to a starving and “comfortably” dressed Carolyn. He came back from a business trip and presented her with a silver plated picture frame. He proceeded to tell her it could be used for a wedding picture and then popped the question. Meanwhile, Carolyn had NJ Housewives in the background while eating pizza, and had just come back from a rained out golf tournament. I love it! (She wiped her hands and said yes, by the way.)


They’re hilarious, beautiful, and so laid back.





Though we passed up a photo op at the button, we ended at New Deck Tavern to warm up again and get a few beers.



I can’t wait for the wedding next Spring. It’ll be a blast!

He’s Steven.  Hi, Steven.  She’s the mayor of Philadelphia.  Hi, Aly.  She knows just about everyone in town.  She’s a peppy social butterfly.  He is less so though the same can be said for just about anyone. They recently moved down to Virginia for Steven’s job and she has found that she misses Philly terribly.  The simply had to have engagement pictures back here in the city where they met and fell in love. We began on streets around Rittenhouse Square with their mini goldendoodle, Charlie Brown.  He will also answer to “Nugget.” The shoot was so stinking easy.  They’re so great together - laughing, playing, goofing off, an ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Queen Village | Sheila + Sanjay
In the midst of this frozen weather, it’s nice to think back just a few short weeks ago to Sheila and Sanjay’s engagement session on an unusually mild Philly fall day. The two met at a Hanukkah party and hit it off. On their first date at Devon, Sanjay brought her a red rose though Sheila worried he wasn’t interested since he didn’t make a move at the end of the night. Lucky for us all, he was just being gentlemanly.We took pictures around their home in Queen Village along the waterfront.Sanjay says that he knew by the second date that she was the one. Her compassion was obvious and attractive. Their compatibility was undeniable.The two ...
