Kelly Anne + Dave: Proposal in Fairmount Park

Engagement

She didn’t even see it coming. Dave had convinced Kelly Anne a proposal was about a year away so she didn’t think much of it when they went into the city last week for lunch and then drove around parts of Philly for her to take pictures.

Kelly Anne is a burgeoning photographer; pictures are important to her. She’s the beautiful snow bunny I photographed last winter. Dave came to me knowing three things:

1) he wanted to propose
2) he wanted fabulous pictures of it
3) he wanted it to be in a beautiful place so the pictures would be that much better

We brainstormed and scouted and came up with this hidden gem of a park on Kelly Drive. This piece of Fairmount Park was absolutely perfect! The plan was this: they’d happen to drive along Kelly Drive and Dave would point out this itty park along the side and exclaim, “Oh hey, that looks like it might be good. Let’s go check it out.” So they’d park and wander towards a particular tree where Kelly Anne would happen to see this:

Then she’d turn around and see this:

After some blissful moments of hugging and kissing she’d see me:

It was awesome. Completely and totally awesome. We wandered around the park a while afterwards for some pictures of the two of them.

And sometimes Kelly Anne would realize that she just got engaged.

Nathan, no matter how terrible a fellow seems, you can never be sure that some girl won’t go for him. Take us.

(Kelly Anne and Dave starred as Adelaide and Nathan in a local production of Guys and Dolls just a few weeks before. How great is that?)

Haesook + Wayne: Engagement Session at Longwood Gardens
It’s fun when couples tell me that they’re not really big on PDA; I like a challenge. Haesook and Wayne were one such couple though you’d never believe it by looking at their pictures. They met at Penn through church, were friends for a few years, and then slowly turned that friendship into a romance.She actually didn’t believe him on the night that he proposed. He picked her up from the airport after visiting family in Korea. He had candles everywhere, pictures of the two of them, he sang to her, and then got down on one knee. Still in a state of jetlag, she thought it was all in fun! Not so.They’ll be getting married next month with a ...
