Mike & Jenny did such an awesome job during their engagement session last Friday at Valley Forge Park! We shoot here quite often so it gets tough to make things look different, but we made some changes and switched things up and grabbed some awesome photos of these two! They brought their little puppy with them so we snagged a photo or two with her before she left. Lots of dogs at our engagement sessions recently! It was so much fun exploring Valley Forge Park with Mike & Jenny. We couldn’t believe how many couple’s have never been to the park before.
Steph and I grew up with this pretty much in our backyard. It’s where we’d go on dates and where I ended up proposing to her, so it has special meaning to us. It’s cool to bring other couple’s into the park with us and show them around. There’s a lot of awesome scenery, walking trails, creeks, barns, fields and memorials. We ventured back towards the Philander Chase Knox Estate which is run by Robert Ryan Catering. It’s a beautiful wedding venue next to some awesome locations for photos. Hoping to shoot a wedding there someday, but for now, we’ll keep shooting engagement sessions around that area.
Mike asked me to go with him to breakfast on Kelly Drive in Philadelphia. After we finished breakfast, he asked if I wanted to take a walk to the Art Museum with him. I was a little suspicious and asked why. He said that he heard there was a nice view. We arrived and began walking up the hill at the back of the museum towards a gazebo that overlooks some the river. While standing there, he said I love you and was sweating a lot. I knew what he was about to ask me. He dropped to one knee and asked me to marry him and of course, I said yes! He had a photographer to capture the entire moment, too! Later that day, he surprised me with a a party at Triumph Brewery with all of our friends and family!
We had such a wonderful time with you guys at Valley Forge last week! We can’t wait for your wedding this spring either! It’s going to be so much fun! Until then, we hope you enjoy some of our favorites from your engagement session!
