How adorable are Steph and Matt? I’m loving every single one of the shots from their engagement session with Rachel Jacobus of Rachel & Jared. Sorry Philly friends, but Rachel is based in Columbus, Ohio, which is where Steph and Matt lived when this shoot took place. They’re in LA now for Steph’s new gig as a Hematology/Oncology Fellow, but they’ll be back in the Philly area next May for their wedding at Brandywine Manor House (and I cannot wait!).
Schiller Park in German Village and Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams lent the backdrop for their super sweet shoot. Jeni’s was one of the first places that Steph took Matt when they moved to Columbus, and she says it’s one of those unique places that you crave. Lucky for them, Jeni’s just opened a location a few blocks from Steph’s new hospital in LA. Schiller Park features a rec center, duck pond, and outdoor theater. It’s a place where Steph and Matt fondly remember enjoying afternoon walks (usually with ice cream in hand).
Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to see their cute cats, Smudge and Ink, who joined them for a few shots at the end of the photo shoot!
