All last week, the forecast for this weekend didn’t look good. Odds seemed strong that we’d have to reschedule Jordan & Andrew’s engagement session. But apparently weather forecasting has a long way to go, because it turned out to be a perfect morning.

And it was indeed morning. Kudos to Jordan and Andrew for being willing to meet really early in the morning.

Jordan and Andrew met during their undergraduate years at Duquesne University, and that’s where we began their session.

These two laugh constantly. This is what they look like most of the time:

The big fountain on Academic Walk wasn’t turned on, but the lovely Duquesne campus has a second fountain, so we headed over there. This spot is very close to where Jordan and Andrew first met, and also where Andrew proposed.

As we left the fountain area, there was a young man who stopped us to ask if there was some formal activity happening there that day. Apparently our photo shoot looked like a big production and he thought we might be part of some big to-do. He explained that he was concerned because he planned to propose to his girlfriend later that day. He pointed to a brick on the ground that said, “I love you Carol. Marry me -John” and said that in a few hours he’d be walking past that spot and showing her the brick. Best of luck to you, Carol and John, wherever you are!

Our second stop was the Hot Metal Street Bridge by the South Side Works.

Jordan’s eyes are gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.

Jordan and Andrew, I had a great time this morning and laughed a whole lot. I am very very much looking forward to your wedding at Riverside Landing in July!
