I love it when I get to do the engagement photos for my soon-to-be married couples! It gives me a chance to get to know them before the big day, and helps them feel more comfortable in front of the camera. It was a pleasure to meet Brian and Meredith. They’re such a kind and fun couple, and I’m really looking forward to photographing their wedding next year! Here is a little that I learned about this amazing couple…

When I saw Travis’s cowboy boots and Brittany’s sparkly heels, I knew I had seen their personalities in  true “shoe form”.  Their wedding was a beautiful combination of class and elegance with just a little touch of country.  Set in the gorgeous Amish countryside, Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens was the perfect place for this amazing couple to say “I do”.

Abby and Jake met in a Biblical Studies course at Eastern University. They were in the same course and on the second day of class Jake’s seat got taken, so he had to sit in the seat next to Abby.

You may remember from the the engagement blog last year, that Michaela and Kyle met in a leadership class but didn’t really connect until they were both at a Philadelphia Eagles game. Kyle couldn’t believe how gorgeous, kind and confident Michaela was….add to that, she was a die-hard Philly fan, and he had found the perfect girl! Michaela thought Kyle was handsome right away and loved how we could walk into any room or situation and get to know people really well. It didn’t take long for them to become exclusive and on a beautiful day last year, Kyle asked Michaela to spend forever with him.

From the day they started talking about getting married, Anna dreamed of a fall wedding. It’s her favorite time of year, and will make the perfect time to celebrate their anniversary for years to come. When they visited Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens, they knew this would be the perfect place for autumn to show off all of it’s gorgeous rich colors and perfect temperatures. They loved the beautiful history behind the hometstead and the rustic feel it gave them at first sight. Their wedding day was absolutely beautiful and fall was in all of it’s glory on their special day.

Katie was convinced that she would never find true love…until she met John. After just one date, she couldn’t stop smiling. And on that first date, John was already in love with her! Fast forward over 4 years later, and I was honored to photograph their gorgeous fall wedding at Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens.

Usually most of my blog posts are from the bride’s perspective. Today, I’m sharing one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever been a part of…from the groom’s perspective. Emily and Brandon are such a sweet and amazing couple! You can tell from his words and from the tenderhearted emotional look on Brandon’s face when he first sees Emily, that he’s truly a romantic and caring guy.

It was the moment he had been waiting for. He could sense her presence coming up behind him and could feel his heart beating out of his chest. He could hardly wait to turn around and see his bride-to-be. As he turned around, his breath was completely taken away. Meghan was absolutely stunning. All Tyler could think was, “Wow, how did in the world did I get so lucky?” As soon as they made eye contact, his nervousness went away and she was all he could see. The moments they shared were pure joy and happiness and felt like they were the only two people on earth. He was in awe of how incredible Meghan looked and was so thankful to have a few moments to focus completely on her. It was a moment Tyler will never forget.

It was their junior year at Penn State University, and a group of friends was meeting at Panera for a reprieve from final exams. Andrew and Shaniece met that week and hit it off right away. Andrew thought she was beautiful and kind. He loved that she was so easy to talk to. Shaniece was wearing a shirt with bees printed on it, and since he finds honeybees fascinating, he was excited to talk to her about it. Shaniece was in a relationship at the time, but still noticed that Andrew was attractive and really funny. He was so outgoing and talking to him was effortless. It would be a year before they spoke again.
