Engagement

One of the most commonly asked questions I get is "Where should we have our photoshoot?" I always encourage my clients to choose somewhere that feels like you and to think outside the box a bit. Maybe your gorgeous venue or you have a friend, family member, or coworker that has access to a beautiful farm or property that you wouldn't have thought of initially. But, if you want to know my favorites in the Lancaster and Harrisburg area that are free, not super busy, and close by - check out my list below!

Alyssa and Jim's engagement session felt like a mini-vacation! Mike and I ventured down earlier in the day to take in the sights and then met up with Alyssa and Jim in Old City Philadelphia at Elfreth's Alley, which is the oldest residential street in the nation. How cool is that!! The joy and love they have for each other absolutely shines on their faces and we had SO much fun hanging out with them! October needs to get here fast for their wedding at the Farm at Eagles Ridge! I can't freaking wait!!

Meeting Alyssa was like talking to a friend you've known for years. She's a blast to talk to and we have a ton of things in common! We're both cat moms and huge Harry Potter nerds - yesss! I had an amazing afternoon going around with her and Chris to all of the gorgeous spots at the Capitol building. They looked like total royalty with our Capitol escort and me following them around with a big camera. I loved Chris's bold blue suit and Alyssa's gorgeous black dress (with pockets - heck yes!). Total Will and Kate vibes. Can't wait for their wedding at the Capitol this fall!

Emily and Joshua are so unbelievably adorable together, I couldn't even handle myself. They're like two magnets that are totally in sync with each other and photographing their love was a DREAM! And guys - Joshua brought his guitar! Cue the swooning! October needs to hurry up because I can't wait for their big day at Brick Gables!
