Longwood Gardens Summer Engagement Session

May 30, 2024

Kaitlyn and Matthew’s Longwood Gardens summer engagement session was a beautiful representation of their fun-loving relationship. With vibrant flowers and breathtaking fountains, it was the perfect backdrop for their beautiful love story.

An incredible backdrop for an incredible couple.

Kaitlyn and Matthew’s love story is a modern romance — they met on Bumble and instantly connected. They didn’t waste any time getting to know each other, going on their first date the very next day. They met at a restaurant bar after work and had a lively and unconventional conversation, diving into topics like religion and aliens. Despite the unusual first-date subjects, or maybe because of them, they clicked and quickly became inseparable.

You never know when or how love is going to spark.

One of their favorite dates was a weekend getaway to Pittsburgh. They visited the Phipps Conservatory, explored the Carnegie Natural History Museum, enjoyed a lovely restaurant, and wandered through downtown. This trip was packed with fun and adventure, creating wonderful memories that brought them even closer.

But that wasn’t the best of all.

On December 16th, 2023, they spent a weekend in Bethlehem, PA. They enjoyed a Christmas market, visited family, and had dinner at a lovely Greek restaurant. Under the twinkling Christmas lights of downtown Bethlehem, Matt proposed with a ring that Kaitlyn designed herself. As a talented jeweler, she poured her heart into creating a one-of-a-kind piece.

It was a date night they will never forget.

During their Longwood Gardens summer engagement session, the HMP Team captured so many sweet moments that reflect their unique love story. The lush gardens and serene atmosphere provided a perfect setting for them to relax and be themselves. Their joy was palpable, and it was such a pleasure to document their love in such a beautiful location.

Kaitlyn and Matthew, thank you for letting us be a part of your journey. Your love story is truly inspiring, and we can’t wait to have you two back in front of our camera later this year.

XOXO ~ Heather Marie
