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.

Main Line Engagement Photographer | Bryn Mawr, PA | Colleen + Karl
I really don’t think I could have asked for a better day/place/couple for an engagement session. I met Colleen and Karl on one of the most beautiful days of the year when the autumn colors were just screaming off of the trees and the temperature was ideal. On top of that, Colleen and Karl were perfectly playful, loving, and photogenic. We shot at and near their beautiful house in Bryn Mawr on the Main Line. The icing on the cake was their 6 month old Greater Swiss Mountain Dog, Samson.We played at the house for a while with Samson. We took a tiny break to change clothes so that we could wander around the gorgeous neighborhood. I loved t ...
