Jason + Erin: Proposal in Rittenhouse Square

Engagement

Jason called me up the other week. He had hatched a plan with the help of Lori from Keystone Concierge. The plan was to propose to his longtime girlfriend, Erin, in Rittenhouse Square one Saturday morning. They were going to walk through the park on the way to “get something to eat at Parc”. And then they’d stop and notice how someone had set up a lovely picnic. And then they’d notice the musician strumming away right beside it (their very own minstrel, if you will). And then Erin would notice Jason on one knee with a ring.

That’s how it went down and it was awesome. And I got to be a part of it. I photographed the whole thing from afar. It was such a rush!

Jason had scoped out the situation down to the very tree. It was one of the last still hanging on to bright red leaves. The setup:



The approach:


The question:


The answer:


The picnic:





And then I came in and introduced myself as the last part of the surprise. I got them for a few minutes as they were still basking in such bliss!



Here’s the bling. It was a beautiful custom design, conceptualized by Jason and perfected by Brian Gavin. Read the whole back story about the ring here.

Jason, fantastic job! Erin, you’ve got yourself quite the guy there. I’m so thrilled to have been able to be a part of it! Congratulations!

I am in love – and, my God, it is the greatest thing that can happen to a man. I tell you, find a woman you can fall in love with. Do it. Let yourself fall in love. If you have not done so already, you are wasting your life.

Allow me to introduce Trish, Tom, and Seydou…Trish and Tom met a couple of years ago through a mutual friend. It's a very good thing they hit it off because they began running into each other all the time.They live right across the street from the Philadelphia Art Museum and we spent time wandering around the area close to their house and even kind of recreating the would-be proposal. They brought along their sweet-as-pie pup, Seydou (a name Tom received while he was in the Peace Corps).We started at the azalea garden along Kelly Drive by the Art Museum for some greenery and get some shots at just the perfect time of year for those vibrant ...
