Engagement Photography at Morris Arboretum in Philadelphia: Jessica + Camren

Engagement

Remember Matt and Julia? Well this isn’t them. This is Jessica and Camren – Cam was one of Matt’s groomsmen. They all knew each other from college at the University of Delaware where Jessica and Camren first met. Both were rugby players and hung out in the same social circles as “buddies” before finally making things legit about three years ago.

They’re totally laid back and comfortable. They complement each other so well – for one thing, she’s always hot and he’s always cold. We met up at Morris Arboretum for their engagement session and had a great time (despite the bee stings). The light was glorious.

They were cracking each other (and me) up the entire time. These two seem like they were made for each other. They just fit.

In all honestly, Cam soon got jealous and won Jessica back…

Cam had bought the ring but couldn’t hold onto it for long. The beach trip that he initially planned was nixed because he just had to get this stone on her hand. He told her that a coworker had cancelled reservations at a nice steakhouse and called ahead to have champagne and flowers set up. When they arrived, the server came around with the ring on a platter and Cam popped the question.

Try not to be a hater but… Jessica is a Mets fan. There, I said it. Love truly conquers all, even baseball rivalries.

I can’t wait to see them again in September for their beach wedding at McLoone’s Pier House in Long Branch, NJ. If previous weddings are any indication, this one’s gonna be a great time!

You have to walk carefully in the beginning of love; the running across fields into your lover’s arms can only come later when you’re sure they won’t laugh if you trip.

This session had already been postponed once and I had already called it off on this day due to impending thunderstorms. I am soooo thankful that I kept refreshing weather.com because the evening for Kate and Kevin’s engagement session was a thing of dreams. We met at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and were given the most perfect light, clouds, and scenery. Oh, and a beautiful, happy couple.As for these two: Kate and Kevin. They’re pretty much destined to save the world. They met five years ago at a homeless shelter (Kevin runs it, Kate was volunteering). One 10 minute conversation and Kevin was smitten. He knew. They went out on two ...
