How Kara and Mike Met and Fell in Love

Every love story is different. While some couples may experience a whirlwind romance for others it’s a slow burn. Mike and Kara met during their college year. They worked at the same grocery store. Mike was a produce associate and Kara was a cashier. They shared an instant connection and became friends quickly. “We would find ways to purposely bump into each other,” Kara recalled. Mike and Kara have been best friends ever since.

What Kara loves the most about her soon to be his hand is his enchanting heart and how he gives everything his all and never walks away from a challenge. According to Kara, Mike is the most thoughtful person she has ever met and the fact that he always thinks of other is what officially won her heart. 

Mike and Kara are truly a perfect match. They enjoy doing home projects together in their free time. Kara describes them as being gift-giving aficionado’s, mainly due to their competitive nature. 

City Style Engagement Photo Shoot

Mike and Kara wanted to commemorate their engagement somewhere that was special to the both of them. Since they both loved the city the couple decided to go for a city style session. They explored the internet for some inspiration and our creative photographers helped the couple find the perfect locations for the session.

Since Mike and Kara love the city, we had to snap some photos of the couple right in the heart of Philadelphia where the passing automobiles provided a cool backdrop.
