Lauren and Tom’s beautiful Philly Center City engagement session is on today’s blog… I am thrilled to be sharing it with you! These two are absolutely the sweetest and one of the most laid-back couples I’ve ever worked with! I’m actually a little bit sad I won’t be shooting their wedding (because they’re AMAZING!). But, I’m thrilled I got to work with them for their stunning engagement session!! A friend of mine introduced me to Lauren and Tom and I am definitely grateful!!
These two live in Connecticut but were in Philly for a concert (they’re avid music lovers!). I’m happy they were willing to squeeze in a session while they were here! Although it was definitely hot and humid, Lauren and Tom were amazing and you’d never know it from their big smiles!! They are clearly very much in love! Having their session in Center City was perfect because Laruen has always dreamed of having photos with Tim dipping and kissing her in front of the City Hall… So make sure you don’t miss those bucket list photos on the blog!
Their Love Story
Lauren and Tom were set up by their friend after college. What’s funny is Tom’s dad was trying to set them up too! These two actually grew up in the same small town years apart, so their paths didn’t pass until they were adults. They didn’t want to get together but after Lauren finally texted Tom, they met up and as she told me “the rest was history!”. Lauren and Tom have their sweet fur babies and a new home, and it was at their new home that Tom proposed!
Getting engaged was something Lauren and Tom had been discussing as they bought and settled into their new house. After some hinting around that the engagement would come last fall, Lauren figured it would happen at their new house warming party. But once Tom picked up the custom ring he designed for Lauren, he couldn’t wait any longer! While some friends were visiting to help with the house, an impromptu photoshoot happened… one that Lauren was a little annoyed was happening (which, as she told me, is pretty odd for her!). Thankfully her friends and family kept insisting and there was Tom, ready to ask her to marry him!! What a sweet way to celebrate their next step!!
Their sweet summer Philly Center City engagement session was so much fun to photograph. Watching these two in love was so special!
What Lauren loves about Tom
“Tom is always doing something, going on a new adventure and living in the moment. Tom reaches me to take new risks, believe in myself, and makes me laugh until I cry… I love Tom’s ability to go into a room of strangers and find ways to connect with them almost instantly.”
What Tom loves about Lauren
“…how she makes me feel like I’m at home and that I trust that she will be there with me through life, no matter what we face.”
