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!

Free LGBTQ proposal photography offer
I have thought about what I want to do to celebrate Pennsylvania’s new marriage equality and have come up with the perfect thing: free LGBTQ proposal sessions! Wedding proposals are my favorite things to photograph. I get excited and all aflutter scheming with the nervous asker and sneakily waiting for the happy couple to appear before my lens. If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you know that I don’t really do the discount thing. I am lucky enough to have a ton of couples who love my work and keep me more than busy. But marriage equality in Pennsylvania is a really huge freaking deal and an issue that is monstrously ...
