Brittany + Justin engagement session in Delaware

Engagement

So I see this couple show up on motorcycles and think to myself, “I bet they’d be fun but no way that’s my couple. Who wants to be worried about helmet hair for their engagement session?” I text Brittany to get her ETA and receive, “We are here! By the bikes :)”. Awesome! And not a single trace of helmet head.

We met at Brecknock Park in Camden, Delaware and the session pretty much rocked. As well as defending her against spiders, Justin can put Brittany in fits of laughter. He’s a goofball and they play off of each other so well.


We had the kind of light that you get in winter. The kind that makes everything crisp and peach-colored. March came in as a lion and we got a very chilly evening to go along with that delicious lens-flare inducing light.



Brittany grew up right around the corner. She knew the park well. We walked through some paths with dappled light, ponds, and naked trees.





I really can’t wait for their beach wedding this May. They’re the perfect combination of affectionate and playful. It seems like they’ve known each other forever.



Oh, and Brittany has the most incredible light blue eyes.


And of course we had to get in some pics of the bikes. Brittany got her bike license just a few days before in the pouring rain. Incidentally, these colors are close to their wedding colors – turquoise and orange. Nothing ordinary for these two!


Yeah, they’re pretty great.


Brittany and Justin, see you two very, very soon! I’m sending good vibes your way for a very speedy recovery for Justin.

Oh blessed be the day, the month, the year, the season and the time, the hour, the instant, the gracious countryside, the place where I was struck by those two lovely eyes that bound me.

Lisa appears to be part mouse.  After all, her first date with Stephen ended with the fastest kiss on record and her skittering away through her gate.  I’ll get to more of that later.  The part of Lisa that isn’t small, bright-eyed, and fast holds a huge heart, abundant laughter, and a goofiness that bursts out among friends. Stephen is the dapper, thoughtful  gentleman on her arm.  And he is a gentleman.  He’s a holds-the-door, finds-the--only-green-Eagles-superbowl-shirt-in-the- city-for-Lisa, mails-her-classroom-supplies-from-across-the-world, and cooks-for-her kind of gentleman. Unrelated: he is a ...
