Main Line Engagement Photographer | Villanova University | Jamie + John

Engagement

It’s something pretty awesome when I ask a couple how they mat and the groom-to-be responds, “It was 8 years ago in college. I saw her across the room and I was thunderstruck.” The relationship didn’t flourish right away but they became close, spending a lot of time on the Campus Activities Team at Villanova University.

Lives went on and he moved to New York. The reconnected at a New Year’s Eve party three years ago and sparks flew. Of course he had to kiss her at midnight. They did the long distance thing for a while until he moved down here.

I met up with them on the insanely gorgeous campus at Villanova University for their engagement photography session. The day was overcast and surprisingly chilly but these two were incredible.

There is an archway on campus. Legend has it that anyone who kisses under it will be together forever.

I got quite the tour. There’s also “The Oreo”, a big black and white circular sculpture in the middle of the place.

Jamie grew up in Maine and goes back to visit her family often. She was there last Labor Day and wanted John to come up but he had already made plans with a friend for a concert. She drove up that night and he flew in on the red eye to get there in the morning. There is a beautiful lighthouse in town where her mother told her to go to run an errand. She arrived there to find John with a ring. It’s a pretty classy move to show up at the most beautiful spots in your hometown to pop the question and somehow arrange for the weather to be absolutely perfect. He designed her ring based on her grandmother’s ring.

These two are goofballs. Some conversations are held in animal noises. Cats are currently trending.

And so studly too! I think it was around this time that we discussed their frequent 90s dance parties, sometimes when no music is playing. Jamie had NKOTB playing through her head during the session.

We had a great time and I am so looking forward to seeing them again this year for their Philadelphia wedding.

Cassie and Paulo are fun, spunky, and totally in love. They met at a birthday party and she approached him and started peppering him with questions about himself.
