Sometimes you have to travel far to stumble upon love… and such is the case with Lauren & Yoon. Their international love story starts out with Yoon hailing from South Korea and Lauren from Hershey, Pennsylvania, meeting in veterinarian school in Philadelphia, and ultimately realizing there might be “something more” than just friendship while on a vet school project in Nepal. Yes, Nepal! There’s no doubt there are grand adventures in store for these two!
I met up with Lauren & Yoon this past fall for their engagement session at the University of Pennsylvania where they met. And, surprise! These two vets brought along one of their furry children, their pup, Zuni. It was an absolutely beautiful day, and it was an honor to witness and capture the quiet love these two share. They enjoy a lot of smiles and laughs together, but there’s also a deep tenderness and fierceness to their love. It’s clear that Yoon absolutely adores his soon-to-be bride, and Lauren is radiant in her fiance’s arms. And, c’mon — they’re veterianarians! People who dedicate their lives to helping animals are pretty much awesome all around, so the fact that they’re both vets makes them doubly awesome. Yup, it’s true!So, without further ado, check out the beautiful duo that is Lauren & Yoon!Seriously… is this little guy not the cutest? His parents are pretty endearing, too…
The University of Pennsylvania campus is quite stunning, and the architecture and grounds are beautiful… especially at the end of fall. We had such a great time meandering along Locust Walk with its vibrant colors, sweet arches, and “LOVE” statue. Lauren & Yoon were simply happy to be with each other, and I loved witnessing their effortless laughter together and sweet kindness to each other.
While on Penn’s campus, we visited the Fisher Fine Arts Library — its staircase is breathtaking! I love the beautiful ironwork there — timeless and classic, just like these two!To finish off their session, we headed into center city Philadelphia to City Hall. Even though it was getting chilly, these two braved the cold and the cars, and we wandered around the downtown area a bit, grabbing some fun shots. And, just for a moment, can we all appreciate how beautiful Lauren is?! And trust me, the inside matches the outside. Yoon, you got a good one!
Lauren & Yoon, I’ve loved getting to know you over the past few months, and I am so excited for your wedding this summer! I know that there are so many wonderful things in store for you, and I’m excited for your journey as husband and wife to begin! Until then, keep on loving and laughing together, saving animal’s lives, and making Zuni shut his eyes in embarrassment over his parents’ public displays of affection!
