Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Rittenhouse Square | Jen + Jeremy
Jen and Jeremy make my heart flutter. They have the trifecta: warm, wonderful personalities, great looks, and a ridiculous dog.
The two met while attending Villanova University on a Habitat for Humanity group trip to Taos, New Mexico. It was one heck of a “first date” and they ended up in adjoining sleeping bags on the Baptist church floor by the end of the trip. They now live in Center City with their 3 year old chocolate lab, Bailey.
We met close to their place on a chilly day just in time for some fantastic local color!
Oh-so-fashionable! They are both quite athletic too – taking trips to maximize skiing, hiking, bike riding… She may be small but Jen was practically born in heels. She is the queen of heels from pumps to wedges. I suppose great legs come with the territory when you’re also a runner and fitness instructor teaching spin!
Jeremy knew that Jen would be expecting a proposal. They were going off on a trip to Spain and things were serious between them. He wanted maximum surprise value. Two mornings before the trip, Jen was in the shower, getting ready for a big interview. Jeremy paced the kitchen and decided that the time was now! Jen got out of the shower and took the towel from Jeremy, under which lay the ring. Complete surprise? Definitely.
I wish I could remember what prompted this but I assure you that I don’t condone domestic violence.
Then came Bailey, a rompy, floppy, happy, energetic pooch. She loves Jen but adoooores Jeremy. Bailey gets insanely jealous when she is forced to share her man.
Bringing dogs into shoots always involves an element of surprise. Here’s an outtake from just getting her. Yes, those are Jen’s legs in the air.
Bailey charmed everyone at Rittenhouse Square that day.
Then there comes a time when you just need to stiff-arm your dog to get a smooch from your sweetie! I can’t wait until their wedding next October at Tyler Arboretum!
p.s. Jen’s beautiful makeup was done by the talented ladies at Cheekadee.
