Montgomery County Couples Photographer | Valley Forge National Park | Elizabeth + Matthew

Engagement

It was drizzly and traffic was bad but the colors were incredible, the location was perfect, and Elizabeth and Matthew were awesome. The last time I saw them was on a cold and rainy day last December as they said their vows in a small wedding at Philadelphia City Hall. Now, as the old married couple that they are, we romped around Valley Forge National Park for a love shoot. This was a pretty ideal location for them. Elizabeth worked at VFNP this past summer, keeping her nose to the ground looking for birds’ nests. They’re both very active and love the outdoors. They had actually just come back hiking in the Delaware Water Gap and camping in below freezing temperatures in New Hampshire right before that.

A quick change later and we were on a mission to find tall grass (sans snakes). Of course the grounds had recently been cleared for the season. Not to be dissuaded, we trekked over the river and through the woods (not really) to find the perfect spot.

The skies were getting darker as we headed back.

There were some “props” that we wanted to try out for a picture or two. Sadie, a 5 year old Westie, and Dexter, a 6 year old Yorkie, were eager to join the party. If you know terriers…

This picture is my favorite from the day. I think it is so perfectly them. They’re loving and cozy and affectionate and their love for each other is so obvious.

No ticks, right? Enjoy!

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

Delaware County Engagement Photographer | Ridley Creek State Park | Hannah + Travis
Hannah and Travis met about four years ago where she was a bartender and he was “security”. The first time they talked she noted that he looked familiar. He responded, “no” and walked away. You see, Travis gets nervous around pretty girls. A few days later he realized that she was right and that they actually went to the same small high school. It took about a month later before he got the nerve to talk to her again.Needless to say, they worked it out. They booked a few months ago but I met them the first time at their engagement session at Ridley Creek State Park in Media, PA. They brought the two new family members, Lana and Jack – ...
