Haesook + Wayne: Engagement Session at Longwood Gardens

Engagement

It’s fun when couples tell me that they’re not really big on PDA; I like a challenge. Haesook and Wayne were one such couple though you’d never believe it by looking at their pictures. They met at Penn through church, were friends for a few years, and then slowly turned that friendship into a romance.

She actually didn’t believe him on the night that he proposed. He picked her up from the airport after visiting family in Korea. He had candles everywhere, pictures of the two of them, he sang to her, and then got down on one knee. Still in a state of jetlag, she thought it was all in fun! Not so.

They’ll be getting married next month with a wedding in North Wales. For right now, check out their fantastic wintery engagement session we had over at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square. We showed up during the orchid extravaganza and wandered through the glorious displays.




I love that these photographs show just how into each other they are.





We braved the cold for some really fantastic shots around the snow covered grounds. Most people were in the greenhouses so we practically had the place to ourselves. It was serene and so beautiful.


And seriously, could they be any more adorable?




Haesook and Wayne informed me of the wonders of Korean dramas and we came up with some absurd plotlines of our own. It was a great afternoon with cuddling, laughing, and some beautiful winter light. I can’t wait for the wedding next month! Thanks again, you two!


Love me and the world is mine.

Philadelphia engagement photographer | Rittenhouse Square | Angela + Robert
I had to begin wondering if this engagement session would ever come.  Angela and Robert were coming down from New York and we had rain plan A-F for a myriad of dates.  Finally I saw them on an overcast day in Philly for their whirlwind engagement session around Rittenhouse Square. The two have been together for 13 years, meeting while working together at the Sports Authority in Queens.  He was a “bad boy” who smoked cigarettes and had an Abercrombie jacket.  She was smitten. Robert was two hours late in picking her up for their first date.  He forgot her house number and knocked on every door up and down the street until he ga ...
