Jennifer & Jeremy Engagments at Hubbard Park

Let me tell you about Jen and Jer.  (Sorry for the shortened names, it is who they are to me!)  I met Jeremy in 2004 when my husband and I began attending Hillside Community Church.  Jeremy stood out to me almost immediately.  He was also a relative new comer to the church and his personality, enthusiasm, and sense of humor could not to be missed.  I was fortunate to find myself in a Bible Study with Jeremy.  His constant antics and hilarious take on life left me aching from laughter each week.

Over the years since I’ve come to know Jeremy as a man of God, of integrity, and of dedication.  He is fiercely loyal to his friends, his church, and his God.  I’ve watched in awe as God worked wonders through Jeremy using his talents in his multiple ministries.  Even during difficult times in his life I’ve always been impressed with how he worked through them and clung to his beliefs.

It wasn’t all that long ago that a new face appeared at Hillside alongside Jeremy.  From our first introduction I knew I’d like Jennifer.  It turns out she and I have lot in common.  Unbeknown-st to me we attended the same university, carried the same major, and traveled similar career paths. Well, until I veered off into photography!

I asked Jen and Jer to share with me how they met and the details of their first date.  It turns out it was an online dating service that brought the two together.  I LOVE that!  I’ve had more than a couple of friends hook up that way!  It appears that the world wide web almost derailed the two would be love birds when the chat system failed and poor Jeremy thought he offended Jen with a joke about the Red Sox and the Yankees.  Finally the two managed to get their wires uncrossed and they headed out for a real date.  And where did Jeremy take his new found interest?  To WORK!  Jeremy is a restaurant manager and he took her to the same restaurant chain he works for.  Ok, to be fair, they didn’t go to HIS restaurant.  But I still couldn’t help but find the situation so… Jeremy!

Well I am beyond thrilled and totally honored that they chose me to photograph their upcoming wedding.  I know it’ll be fabulous.  One thing is for certain, it is going to be a BLAST!  In the meantime, as we await the big day, I thought I’d share with you some favorites from their engagement session.  Enjoy!

FAQ: What do your spiral bound photobooks look like?

In the past I offered something called a session album as part of a couple of my packages.  I found the description must not be very clear because most of my clients asked me what exactly that was.  So I’ve decided to rename the product. I think Spiral Bound Photobook is a bit more accurate.  It features front and back custom designed sturdy covers.  These books are absolutely adorable and perfect for toting around in your purse and sharing with others.  They make fantastic gifts as well! I feature the 5×7 version in my packages but they also come in 4×6, 5×5, and 8×10.

Since a picture is worth a 1,000 words I thought you’d appreciate a visual of exactly what I am talking about.  I created this album for one of my recent clients.  I was quite pleased with how it turned out.  Of course, I did have a gorgeous model gracing the pages.
