What can I say about Shannon and Drew? They are easygoing and so much fun! Shannon has a sparky energy that is so lively and Drew seems to be the calming factor. I have a feeling they are pretty perfect for each other and I just cannot wait for their Pump House Bed & Breakfast wedding next month! The Pump House is always such a great place to shoot, but with this couple I know it will be top notch. Now I need to take a minute to talk about those boots. I loved Shannon & Drew's easy wardrobe options (you can never go wrong with neutrals and jeans in my opinion), but those boots are killer, Shannon. I need to know who makes them by the way, but that's for another time and place. For now, enjoy this country engagement session in Stillwater! This was split between my property and the covered bridge at the bottom of my road, which are always two of my favorite places to shoot. Enjoy!
Kelsey and Joe had a perfect day surrounded by close family and friends for their intimate Benton Backyard Wedding at a private residence in Northeastern Pennsylvania on a beautiful day in late September. The leaves were just starting to turn at the Ol' Country Barn, an antique shop owned by a family friend, where the event took place. The vintage chairs from Forget Me Not Vintage Rentals served as both ceremony seating as well as reception seating (the guests just picked up their seats and moved them to their tables prior to cocktail hour - genius!) which added a lot of personality to the outdoor event! Lots of love was put into the rustic yet elegant details of the day, which were polished off with bits of babies breath. My favorite thing about this couple's day was how laid back, easygoing, and FUN it was. It's so refreshing to work with a couple who is not afraid to have a stripped down day without the fuss and just let it flow... and that's exactly what Kelsey and Joe did. In the midst of building a house together, they didn't want to get carried away with an over the top wedding and instead had an intimate gathering that seemed to suit them perfectly, and it was absolutely gorgeous. In fact, they were so eager to head on out to their honeymoon, they didn't even care to cut the cake (they wanted to take it with them... perfect!). Don't worry, all of the guests were able to hit up the adorable pie bar, where loads of beautiful pies were on display.
Congratulations Kelsey & Joe, I hope the past two months have been wonderful!

I LOVE this time of year. Summer is in full swing and there's a ton of luscious golden light in the evenings that makes for a hazy, romantic look to summer engagement pictures when shooting into the sun. The evening hours are absolutely perfect to work in, especially for an engagement session where that glow perfectly frames a couple in love! It was such an honor capturing gorgeous Hannah and Brian for their engagement session and I wish them the best of luck in planning their wedding. Enjoy!
