Carolyn + Jeremy: Engagement Session at UPenn

Engagement

I met with Carolyn and Jeremy the other week at the University of Pennsylvania, where Carolyn went for undergrad, for their e-session. She had given tours during her tenure there so we got a great walk around the campus. Carolyn is from the Philly area though the couple now lives in Boston. They’ll be celebrating their wedding in April at St. Thomas Church of Villanova and Philadelphia’s Down Town Club.

We started by the Fisher Fine Arts Library to warm up from the blustery day. Who knew they had stairwells like this?


It was chilly, but really, who cares?


It’s a fantastic campus and I learned a great many things about these two: Jeremy’s brief stint as a model, the marathons and half marathons they do for kicks, Carolyn’s apparent love for trashy TV during serious life moments, Jeremy’s inability to finish cheesesteaks (for shame!)…




I believe the pickup line was “Are you tired? Because you’ve been running through my head all day.” Always a winner.


So Jeremy proposed to a starving and “comfortably” dressed Carolyn. He came back from a business trip and presented her with a silver plated picture frame. He proceeded to tell her it could be used for a wedding picture and then popped the question. Meanwhile, Carolyn had NJ Housewives in the background while eating pizza, and had just come back from a rained out golf tournament. I love it! (She wiped her hands and said yes, by the way.)


They’re hilarious, beautiful, and so laid back.





Though we passed up a photo op at the button, we ended at New Deck Tavern to warm up again and get a few beers.



I can’t wait for the wedding next Spring. It’ll be a blast!

Love is the condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.

Engagement Photography at Morris Arboretum in Philadelphia: Jessica + Camren
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 (an ...

30th Street Station in Philly is just gorgeous. I absolutely adore the architecture and it's just neat to photograph at a train station.Michelle and Alastair found me through some strange connections (my friend Martha who lives in Seattle who I met at photography school in Montana referred me to Michelle and Alastair who live in San Francisco but met Martha and her husband, Jason, in Ithaca). Despite their wedding being in New York, Michelle and Alastair happened to be in Philadelphia for Michelle's bridal shower. Need a flow chart? I do.Regardless… I met with the adorable Michelle and Alastair for a lovely (albeit rainy) engagement sess ...
