The Philander Chase Knox Estate in Valley Forge is seriously my favorite place to shoot. I’ve said it before and I’l say it again, it has everything! Patrick & Emily were such a joy to spend time with last week before Thanksgiving. They are both so sweet and once you break them out of their shell, they can get a little goofy. I loved watching them giggle with each other and have fun during this entire shoot. They also wore such great outfits that were comfortable, but not too casual, plus their colors pop right out of the images. Outfits make a world of difference when getting your photo taken and color is a huge part of that. Take notes from these two! We can’t wait to see them again this July for their wedding at Bluestone Country Club.
Patrick and I met in middle school… but as teachers! Patrick teaches at Wissahickon and I was a student teacher at the time. We began dating by the end of the year in the spring of 2016. Patrick proposed to me on Memorial Day weekend of 2017. We were dating for a little over a year. We were down at his family’s shore house for the holiday weekend. On Saturday morning, we decided to watch the sunrise at the beach. He proposed to me on the beach during sunrise!
You guys rocked it! Thanks for embracing the wind and laughing through all of the weird poses and awkward prompts I asked of you. You’re both naturals in front of the camera and we can’t wait for your wedding. Until then, we hope you enjoy some of our favorites from your engagement session!
