Engagement Photography at Morris Arboretum in Philadelphia: Jessica + Camren

Engagement

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 (and me) up the entire time. These two seem like they were made for each other. They just fit.

In all honestly, Cam soon got jealous and won Jessica back…

Cam had bought the ring but couldn’t hold onto it for long. The beach trip that he initially planned was nixed because he just had to get this stone on her hand. He told her that a coworker had cancelled reservations at a nice steakhouse and called ahead to have champagne and flowers set up. When they arrived, the server came around with the ring on a platter and Cam popped the question.

Try not to be a hater but… Jessica is a Mets fan. There, I said it. Love truly conquers all, even baseball rivalries.

I can’t wait to see them again in September for their beach wedding at McLoone’s Pier House in Long Branch, NJ. If previous weddings are any indication, this one’s gonna be a great time!

You have to walk carefully in the beginning of love; the running across fields into your lover’s arms can only come later when you’re sure they won’t laugh if you trip.

Philadelphia engagement photographer | Rittenhouse Square | Angela + Robert
I had to begin wondering if this engagement session would ever come.  Angela and Robert were coming down from New York and we had rain plan A-F for a myriad of dates.  Finally I saw them on an overcast day in Philly for their whirlwind engagement session around Rittenhouse Square. The two have been together for 13 years, meeting while working together at the Sports Authority in Queens.  He was a “bad boy” who smoked cigarettes and had an Abercrombie jacket.  She was smitten. Robert was two hours late in picking her up for their first date.  He forgot her house number and knocked on every door up and down the street until he ga ...
