Jason + Erin: Proposal in Rittenhouse Square

Engagement

Jason called me up the other week. He had hatched a plan with the help of Lori from Keystone Concierge. The plan was to propose to his longtime girlfriend, Erin, in Rittenhouse Square one Saturday morning. They were going to walk through the park on the way to “get something to eat at Parc”. And then they’d stop and notice how someone had set up a lovely picnic. And then they’d notice the musician strumming away right beside it (their very own minstrel, if you will). And then Erin would notice Jason on one knee with a ring.

That’s how it went down and it was awesome. And I got to be a part of it. I photographed the whole thing from afar. It was such a rush!

Jason had scoped out the situation down to the very tree. It was one of the last still hanging on to bright red leaves. The setup:



The approach:


The question:


The answer:


The picnic:





And then I came in and introduced myself as the last part of the surprise. I got them for a few minutes as they were still basking in such bliss!



Here’s the bling. It was a beautiful custom design, conceptualized by Jason and perfected by Brian Gavin. Read the whole back story about the ring here.

Jason, fantastic job! Erin, you’ve got yourself quite the guy there. I’m so thrilled to have been able to be a part of it! Congratulations!

I am in love – and, my God, it is the greatest thing that can happen to a man. I tell you, find a woman you can fall in love with. Do it. Let yourself fall in love. If you have not done so already, you are wasting your life.

Brittany + Justin engagement session in Delaware
So I see this couple show up on motorcycles and think to myself, “I bet they’d be fun but no way that’s my couple. Who wants to be worried about helmet hair for their engagement session?” I text Brittany to get her ETA and receive, “We are here! By the bikes :)”. Awesome! And not a single trace of helmet head.We met at Brecknock Park in Camden, Delaware and the session pretty much rocked. As well as defending her against spiders, Justin can put Brittany in fits of laughter. He’s a goofball and they play off of each other so well.We had the kind of light that you get in winter. The kind that makes everything crisp and peach-colored. M ...
