Scott and Janae | Lock 12 Holtwood | Engagement Session

I love engagement sessions as it's a time to become creative and have fun with a couple while scouting out new locations.  This engagement session held even deeper love as Janae's life has been a journey that I got to follow from birth.   I was honored when I was asked to be the photographer for Scott and Janae's big day. 

Watching this beautiful lady grow from an infant all the way through to a woman and now a bride has been a joy.  She is passionate about her heritage in Farming and is a woman of Grace and has a deep love for the Lord.   Scott came into her life many years ago as they met through FFA and their common interests are many. His love for her is clear!

Janae  suggested Lock 12in Holtwood PA, as her location for engagement photos.  On a very windy evening in April, we headed to Holtwood to explore the Holtwood Dam and Norman Wood Bridge, as well as the remains of the canal at Lock 12.  The canal had some water in it which made us have to work a little harder to get images of the two of them without getting our feet soaked.  We accomplished it and had a lot of laughs along the way. 

We could not forget to include the beloved motorcycle in the session. Both Scott and Janae have a love for riding and it was a fun twist on photos. 

I am counting down the days until I get to witness these two become one as they say their vows on their beautiful farm in May. 

Enjoy ....

Jonathan and Sarah | Lancaster County Park | Engagement Photography

On a beautiful evening in February, after many snowy failed attempts, we captured images of the love between John and Sarah at Rockford Plantation, in Lancaster, PA.  

 After two years of dating, on a chilly Christmas Eve at Lititz Springs Park, Jon surprised Sarah on a quiet park bench by proposing.  Sarah of course said "Yes"!  

Later this summer, Jon and Sarah will say their vows before family and friends as they share the tender love that they have for each other.  Spending a few hours with these two was such fun, although both are very shy, they were pure joy to capture images of and to make laugh.  

Special thanks to Brittney Kreider assisting.

Enjoy - John and Sarah

Cassandra and Phillip | Bookstore Engagement | Wedding Photographer

A beautiful waitress and a love-struck customer… Phillip noticed Cassandra two years ago at a restaurant in York.  He bravely left his waitress (Cassandra) a tip and a note on the receipt with his number to text him.  After two days of waiting patiently, Phillip finally heard back from Cassandra.   This is where their love story begins… 

Fast forward to December of 2015, Phillip took Cassandra to a beautiful dinner in Harrisburg and then off to one of their favorite place, Midtown Scholar Bookstore.  

 In one of the lower levels, in a private corner, Phillip asked Cassandra to be his wife that December evening.  She said, “YES”!

Midtown Scholar is an amazing bookstore that goes on and on for what seems like forever.  It has a number of floors and a quaint little coffee shop in the front.  The store is a converted theater and is the most fun of locations for a reading lovers date night

  Midtown Scholar Bookstore was very accommodating and allowed us access to it’s beauty for an engagement session in early January.  Phillip and Cassandra surrounded themselves with their favorite books and we captured their love for each other.

I look forward to early summer when these two will be married at a very unique and beautiful location in Manheim.  

Enjoy a peek into Phillip and Cassandra’s love story….
