Longwood Gardens Engagement Photos

I met Gabrielle last year at a styled shoot for Jasna Polana.  It was so great working with Gabrielle, and since she knew my style of shooting, she decided to choose me as her wedding photographer!  Fast forward to today and I am SO excited to share Gabrielle and her fiancé Jeff’s, Longwood Gardens engagement photos! We explored the grounds of the gardens and got some really great images – such a variety!  Gabrielle wore two different dresses for her shoot, both from Club Monaco! Gabrielle wanted her white dress from Club Monaco to coordinate with Jeff so he wore navy khakis and a white Burberry button-up. For the other outfit, Gabrielle wore a tan dress with blue flowers that matched with Jeff’s blue suit from My Suit.

 How did you two meet?

My sister-in-law spent 8 months trying to get Jeff and I to meet. She knew him through friends in Philadelphia and thought he was the perfect guy for me, turns out she was right! At the time I have no interest in being set up on a blind date. Luckily she was persistent!

 What do you both enjoy doing together with your free time?

In our free time we enjoy going to the beach and going for bike rides.

If you could vacation right now, anywhere in the world together – where would it be?

If we could go on vacation right now together it would be back to Bermuda for a quick getaway. We are both so busy right now it would be nice to go somewhere close (the flight is under 2 hours) and so beautiful so just relax and spend time together!

 How did he pop the question?

He popped the question while on vacation in Bermuda with my best friend and her boyfriend. After he popped the question my parents and his mother and god-mother were waiting inside the restaurant to surprise me.
