University of Scranton Engagement
Laura + Kevin
"I belong with you, you belong with me...you are my sweetheart" | the lumineers
Laura and Kevin met and fell in love while study at the University of Scranton! He was a business major, involved in Lacrosse and Hockey, while she was study to become one of the greatest things in the world, a teacher. As we walked around campus, Laura told me a story about while they were all hanging out around campus on the weekend a limo bus pulled up and an entire wedding party and a bride and groom walked out. Laura remembers “all the girls from our group gathered and watched like she was a celebrity and I thought ‘HOW COOL is that to come back to campus for pictures on your wedding day!” Since graduating Kevin and Laura have begun their careers down outside of Philadelphia, but always knew they wanted to incorporate this very special place in their story somehow. So, when Kevin popped the question – – there was only ONE PLACE to head back to to celebrate their engagement – – The U! I absolutely LOVED my time with these two, as they are incredibly loving, caring and beautifully genuine people! Like the time I put Kevin’s keys and cell phone in the COMPLETELY OPEN back pocket of my bag and we lost them somewhere on campus! While I felt beyond horrible and worried, both Kevin and Laura just kept saying “It’s okay!! We will find them!” We eventually did, however for those good 10 mins I was in a pure state of panic while Laura and Kevin just kept calm and positive!
After a slight recovery it was back on track for telling their awesome love story! Seriously, the way Kevin just looks at Laura and makes her smile is out of a movie! Laura has such a beautiful bright smile that is AMAZING to capture on camera! I loved hearing stories from their college days and watching them as they walked around campus, remembering. We took a quick stop by Kevin’s old house on Clay Ave for a few “beautiful people in ugly places” photos, which actually ended up being some of my favorite for their session! Then it was a quick outfit change and up to Nay Aug Park for some “pretty people in pretty places” photos as well! When it was time to say goodbye, I got sad that they had to leave! I made them promise if they ever come back up to Scranton that we’d stop by the Green Frog for a drink, and Good Fellas for a slice and chat more about the “good ol’ days!”
Cheers to Kevin + Laura 🙂
