College Sweethearts get engaged
When Jean asked me to photograph her wedding, I was, of course, thrilled. When you’re starting a new business, any such vote of confidence is a big deal, but I’d also met Jean and Corey a loooong time ago, back when I lived in Baltimore and they were still “just friends” who had met on the Johns Hopkins University Taekwondo team.
Jean’s the younger sister of one of my sorority sisters/oldest friends, so a whole group of us were rooting for Jean and Corey. We watched via social media (so Millenial!) as they dated long distance with Corey in California for work and Jean at Princeton for graduate school. Then Corey moved to New Jersey to be with Jean … then the couple moved to North Carolina … then after nine years knowing each other and seven years of dating, they went on a trip to Europe AND HE PROPOSED!
I can’t wait to go back to Baltimore for the wedding in early September!
