Longwood Gardens Engagement Photos | Lauren & Matt
It seems like a lifetime ago that we did Lauren and Matt’s Longwood Gardens engagement session this winter. Longwood Gardens is one of my favorite places in this whole world. It is so pretty there all year long, with each season having its own flowers and overall vibe. This was actually my first time being there in winter and it was just lovely. They just started putting up some of the Christmas Lights on the trees and season plants were in bloom. And it was still warm enough to not need a jacket but also not too hot as it can get in the summer. You could call it the perfect setting for a great photoshoot!
Lauren and Matt are currently planning their 2020 wedding during COVID-19 – a pandemic affecting every person in this world. Same as so many couples out there trying to make plans when everything is so uncertain. So many have had to postpone, cancel or completely change the most important day of their lives. It’s so hard to even know what to do to plan ahead. I think it’s most important to do what feels right (and of course safe).
Lauren is actually a respiratory therapist at Lankenau Medical Center. She is working on the front lines every day and has had to put wedding planning on the back burner a bit. There are some things she cannot even do until certain retail stores are open. I hope that by this fall when their wedding is supposed to be, that their wedding can go on as planned with little sacrifices. I really want to celebrate with these two in October! She was interview by Philadelphia Magazine about her planning process and journey, take a look!
