Chester County Engagement Photographer | Longwood Gardens | Jennifer + Mark

Engagement

Many people who meet at school do so over beer in some bar. Not Jennifer and Mark. They’re far classier than that nonsense. They met at a wine tasting at Oxford. Mark is very, very into wine (he was president of the Oxford University Wine Society) and they promise to divulge some great wineries to me for my future travels. This is often a focal point for their travels as they both love wine and cooking.

Though they both live in England, Jennifer grew up in Penn Valley and so they came back for their engagement session (and their wedding at the Atrium at the Curtis Center this August). It was a blustery but bright day when we wandered around Longwood Gardens for their pictures.

They had been together about 7 years when they moved into a flat together. That day, after the movers had cleared out, Mark proposed. He had known that Jennifer wanted to pick out her own ring. She choose an absolutely stunning oval diamond with a halo in a rose gold setting. It was spectacular!

They had spent two years in a long distance relationship while she was in Liverpool for a job. It was two hours away by train. He knew that if they were able to survive that together, they were good to go.

I’m sure you noticed her fantastic red lips (makeup by Cheekadee) but did you check out her vintage seamed tights? Sooo good.

I can’t wait to see what’s in store at the Curtis Center later this summer for their wedding. Hurry back to this side of the pond soon!

Engagement Session Photography at Valley Forge National Park: Kelly + Kevin
I don’t think I have it in me to live too dangerously. Kelly and Kevin’s engagement session at Valley Forge National Park is about as ferocious as things get for me (as long as you’re not counting sky diving and training for a marathon). We battled geese, ticks, traffic, gnats, and a very intense park ranger named Bruce. Never fear; we overcame and have some fantastic images to show for our adventures.But first let me tell you a little about Kelly and Kevin. They knew each other back in high school. He was a too cool quarterback and a year ahead of her. It wasn’t until a few years ago that they reconnected at a pub and she was eventuall ...
