Kat & Jason’s Engagement Session
Capitol of Harrisburg, Harrisburg, PA
THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION!
We went to the Harrisburg Capitol for Kat & Jason’s Engagement Session and what can I say?!?!?! The pictures turned out AMAZING and I had a wonderful time with this couple!! Kat & Jason are getting married in March of 2023 at StoneHedge Golf Course and Shay Scala Photography can’t wait to capture those amazing moments as well!
HOW YOU MET?
Kathleen: We met on Tinder. I was on there more so for entertainment, but came across Jason’s profile. I didn’t think it would actually turn into anything, but 5 years later we’re still together 😊
Jason: We met on Tinder.
HOW YOU FELL IN LOVE?
Kathleen: I pushed Jason off for almost 2 months of him asking to meet in person and to take me on a date. I used about every excuse in the book; However, Jason was persistent & I eventually caved. The first date was all it took. Getting to know Jason showed me how he is patient, loving, kind, gentle and caring. From day one of even talking – before we met in person – he always treated me with respect and seemed to want to spend time with me, which is not typical for our generation. He also handled meeting my friends and family really well. When he got along with my sister and actually talked to her, that was definitely a moment of falling in love even more. No other relationship I have had has even considered connecting with my sister, let alone finding common interests.
Jason: I don’t know exactly how it happened, but it happened over time. I fell in love with her more in stages as I learned more about her and her life.
HOW DID YOU PROPOSE?
Jason: I coordinated with two of Kathleen’s best friends for MONTHS somehow without Kathleen knowing. We planned a “New Years Party” at Kathleen’s friend Kat’s house. Kathleen even helped to make food and Jello shots for the party. When Kathleen was out with friends pre-gaming the party, a few of Kathleen’s friends and I set up the whole thing. There were rose petals, tea light candles, photos and tiny chalkboard with phrases going up the stairs. I was at the top of the stairs with everyone else around and with Balloons saying “Will you Marry Me?”.
Kathleen: I had no idea they were planning and when I walked into my friends townhouse, I saw a friend’s boyfriend in the stairwell, and I thought I had walked into her surprise, so I stepped aside. It didn’t take me long to realize the surprise was for me, and I had been complaining for months over nothing.
WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED ABOUT WITH PLANNING YOUR WEDDING?
Kathleen: I am so excited to plan in general. Event planning is a passion of mine, so this is right up my alley. I am really excited to basically have a huge dance party with all of our closest friends.
Jason: The most exciting part of it to me was picking the venue, and I also find it really exciting doing groomsman proposals.
YOUR LOVE STORY IS MADE INTO A MOVIE – WHAT WOULD YOU TITLE IT?
Kathleen: The Unexpected: A Love that Lasts
Jason: The Tinder Date
DESCRIBE YOUR RELATIONSHIP IN 5 WORDS.
Kathleen: Patient, loyal, fun, loving, exciting
Jason: Loving, Productive, Always Growing, Exciting, Unpredictable
SOMETHING THAT MEANS THE MOST TO YOU.
Kathleen: It means the most to me that Jason enjoys the wedding as much as I do & to have input and dreams carried out in the event as well.
Jason: My time with Kathleen.
