Chester County Engagement Photographer | Longwood Gardens | Jennifer + Mark

Engagement

Many people who meet at school do so over beer in some bar. Not Jennifer and Mark. They’re far classier than that nonsense. They met at a wine tasting at Oxford. Mark is very, very into wine (he was president of the Oxford University Wine Society) and they promise to divulge some great wineries to me for my future travels. This is often a focal point for their travels as they both love wine and cooking.

Though they both live in England, Jennifer grew up in Penn Valley and so they came back for their engagement session (and their wedding at the Atrium at the Curtis Center this August). It was a blustery but bright day when we wandered around Longwood Gardens for their pictures.

They had been together about 7 years when they moved into a flat together. That day, after the movers had cleared out, Mark proposed. He had known that Jennifer wanted to pick out her own ring. She choose an absolutely stunning oval diamond with a halo in a rose gold setting. It was spectacular!

They had spent two years in a long distance relationship while she was in Liverpool for a job. It was two hours away by train. He knew that if they were able to survive that together, they were good to go.

I’m sure you noticed her fantastic red lips (makeup by Cheekadee) but did you check out her vintage seamed tights? Sooo good.

I can’t wait to see what’s in store at the Curtis Center later this summer for their wedding. Hurry back to this side of the pond soon!

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Wissahickon Park | Amanda + Matt
Perhaps they can’t be trusted to write their own vows but Amanda and Matt are the kind of couple I want around all the time.  This isn’t about the pictures (though, yes, they’re both pretty damn hot) but just because they’re fun people and I feel that I could come up with some kind of tough mudder obstacle course to get them back for our engagement session.  (I kid, I kid.) I had a really great time sweating through the woods in Wissahickon Park near Valley Green Inn.  This was a special place for them – when they were both in law school at Villanova and living in Roxborough this is the place they’d come to take a break from the stress ...
