This couple is honestly just the sweetest. They totally embody classic romance. Hope is currently in Medical School at Duke so it stands to reason that the only time she has for engagement photos between becoming a doctor and wedding planning would be on campus! In fact, Hope’s parents are the folks who hired me for her upcoming wedding! After meeting Rob and Hope in person, we found that it couldn’t have been a more perfect fit!

When I think of the term “power couple” these two come to mind. Caroline is a Duke grad from Idaho who I weirdly met in our Freshman year Spanish class. She just made the Forbes 30 under 30 list for being a media queen. If you don’t know what that list is, you should know it’s harder to get on that list than to get into any Ivy League college. Bam. Dan is the sweetest guy from New Jersey and works for Deloitte. While the two now live in San Francisco, Dan is in New York a ton for work and their jobs take them all over. The future Gadinos decided to snap engagement photos where it all began: Duke University.

Abby & Sam’s story is one of my absolute favorites. Abby, the Olympic diver and Sam, a talented collegiate athlete himself, both met at Duke. She attends Duke medical school and Sam is the Duke assistant football coach so it stands to reason that these two would meet on campus no? Wrong! Actually, these two met through a kismet accident.
