Spring Creek Park Engagement Session | State College, PA Wedding Photographers | Seth + Staci

It's only natural to be excited.

Especially when the anticipation of having a sparkly diamond placed on your finger will lead to forever with the man you love. And you'll have a beautiful wedding, and maybe a dog, and a house, and babies, and you'll wake up next to him, and go to sleep with him, and...

See? Natural.

So when Staci and Seth picked out her ring together, it was only natural for the anticipation to make her incredibly excited, and maybe a little suspicious...all day every day. Whenever she felt those feelings of anticipation start to take over, her now often-asked question flew out, "When's it gonna be?!" Of course she meant it jokingly (sort of...ladies, you know), but finally Seth gave in. On the day he meant to propose, she already knew what was happening, so he cut right to the chase and put that ring on her finger FAST. Cue the festivities and the anticipation giving way to ALL the emotions!

It's like that when you get engaged. Emotional is an understatement. Many of us ladies don't quite know what to do with ourselves when the moment finally arrives (because let's face it, whether or not we've dreamed of our wedding day for our whole lives, we HAVE spent a lot of time thinking of what it's like to have the honor of that sweet, sweet question). Surreal is a better word.

So enjoy this time you two. October will be here before you know it and your big day will just bring more emotion, in all the good ways. Can't wait!

White Chimneys Engagement Session | Lancaster, PA Wedding Photographers | Kutty + Chelsey

There she was. His future bride. Running the cash register at Ross in State College, PA.

Although, at the time, he had no idea. Kutty had applied for a job there and Chelsey had her eye on him from the moment he set foot in the store. So, she did her best to make her presence known. She introduced herself and in the days following she attempted to strike up conversations, eventually asking him questions, like where to stock items (even though she knew exactly where to put them). Nothing.

Finally, he took the hint and asked her out on a date. Phew! That night they sat in his car and talked (or he did, according to Chelsey) for hours. Kutty made her feel so comfortable with his easy conversation, and she knew he was special. They dated for a few years, and one day on a beautiful walk in the great outdoors, he felt the moment was right. It was. She said yes!

 

We are so glad she did! Their sweet engagement session at White Chimneys was one for the books (I mean, horses. Wow!). And now we are already excited for the wedding! You two are going to have an amazing day. Just don't forget to enjoy the remainder of your days as an engaged couple!

Bell Mountain Estates Wedding | State College, PA Wedding Photographers | Dan + Haley

Bell Mountain Estates is just one of my favorite venues as a State College and Central PA photographer. There are quite a few that make my creative heart sing, but this one appeals to my inner outdoor girl as well. The mountains, the pond, the natural light. Sigh. Gorgeous. Just outside of downtown Lewistown, PA lies this beautiful wedding venue at the base of a mountain.

On Dan and Haley's wedding day, rain threatened but instead left an alluring mist in those mountain trees before the ceremony. Inside the stone farmhouse, Haley took a few moments of her unexpected down time to simply gaze at the dress she was about to wear for her groom. When she put it on, tears glistened in her green eyes. She and Dan have a relationship that shouts "we really were made for each other!" Honestly, I have not met a bridal couple who are so much alike. These two are fun. Like, goofy together. I can't count the amount of silly faces they made at each other throughout the day. Makes me smile just thinking about it.

Dan and Haley, your relationship is light-hearted and fun, and yet it is also obviously serious to you. You treat each other with deliberate care and with genuine thoughtfulness. It is inspiring to others. Our prayer for you as you begin your marriage journey together is that you continue to be responsible for each other. That you treat your spouse with utmost care out of a sincere heart, and that you pursue the Lord together. Continue to use your amazing voices in worship to Him and in service to people. What a gift you share! Thank you for sharing your day with us. We were honored.

xoxo

Tussey Mountain Engagement Session | State College, PA Wedding Photographers | Josh + Chelsea

This was one of those sessions a photographer hopes for...perfect golden sunshine as the sun descends in the sky, still water on a mountain pond, and a couple who is really into each other (and their pictures!). Adam and I couldn't have enjoyed our time with Josh and Chelsea more. To the two of you specifically: Keep that wedding planning coming! Your day will be here before you know it and all the details will be put to work to make your day amazing. But in this time, ENJOY every moment of engagement. So hard to do, and this time is so fleeting. Never again will you be able to call each other "fiance". Make it count! Also, we are so appreciative of the service both of you provide to our great state of Pennsylvania and our community. So glad there are teachers and troopers like you. THANK YOU! Can't wait for September!

The Loft at Landis Creek Wedding | Limerick, PA | Chris + Danielle

A hostel bar in Copenhagen.

How many love stories start like that? Okay...how many REAL love stories start like that? Well, this one does.

While traveling abroad with a couple of her friends, Danielle saw him from across the bar, and felt she just had to go talk to him. His name was Chris, and the Englishman charmed her from the beginning. They traveled all over together for the rest of her time in Europe, and when it came time for her to leave, they did not say goodbye. They simply said, "Goodnight." She figured that was that, but he had other plans.

A short time later, Danielle received a text message from Chris. This man was on a plane to Philadelphia! How's that for not saying "good-bye"?

And now, here they are on their wedding day. An oh-so-sweet day at The Loft at Landis Creek with stories of travel, literary works galore, and the tale of their romance told over and over. Chris and Danielle, here's to good memories and grand adventures. We hope you make so many more in your marriage journey.

xoxo

Lancaster County Park, PA Engagement Session | Chris + Danielle

I'll save the romantic "how they met" story for their wedding post (be patient, be patient...) BUT see how great they look together?! We met up with Chris and Danielle for their engagement session 6 DAYS before their wedding! I've never seen two people in the final week before their wedding looking so calm and collected. I was impressed to say the least.
