Engagement Session Photography at Valley Forge National Park: Kelly + Kevin

Engagement

I don’t think I have it in me to live too dangerously. Kelly and Kevin’s engagement session at Valley Forge National Park is about as ferocious as things get for me (as long as you’re not counting sky diving and training for a marathon). We battled geese, ticks, traffic, gnats, and a very intense park ranger named Bruce. Never fear; we overcame and have some fantastic images to show for our adventures.

But first let me tell you a little about Kelly and Kevin. They knew each other back in high school. He was a too cool quarterback and a year ahead of her. It wasn’t until a few years ago that they reconnected at a pub and she was eventually smooth talked into something serious. Could you resist those big, green eyes? Didn’t think so. He surprised her with rose petals, a ring, and down on one knee when they were “going to go out for his father’s birthday”.

I can’t wait to photograph their wedding this November at Philadelphia’s Please Touch Museum. For now, here are some pictures from their engagement session…

A quick change later and we were on our way. Kelly is gorgeous and her laughter is infectious. Her entire being smiles with her and it’s awesome.

And seriously, what a ring, right?!

I promise these two weren’t dragging blankets like Pigpen. The gnats were out to get us. Think of them instead as tiny, little bug fairies. There, isn’t that better?

We lucked out with some incredible light from golden hour.

Kelly and Kevin, can’t wait for the wedding! Thanks so much for spending (and surviving!) a wonderful evening with me.

I had been wanting to do an all out fair engagement session for ages! Lucky for me, I have the greatest couples in the world. When Keri, Dan, and I were thinking up ideas for what we should do and I offered up a fair, they jumped right on the idea. They love amusement parks and they’re so carefree and playful that it was absolutely perfect.This wasn’t our first choice, though. We were originally going to try to get to the Harleysville Fair, out by Keri and a fair she knows and loves. A bout of poison ivy meant we had to postpone the session and choose a replacement. I scrounged up the Goshen County Fair in West Chester and we all blindl ...
