If I’m being really honest (and I like to be as honest as possible) I think I enjoy engagement shoots more than weddings. One of the reasons is because I love working with new clients for the first time and really getting to know them, discover their personalities, their story, and capture the essence of their relationship without the constraints of time and the stress of the typical wedding day. Plus, you can go to really cool locations. Matt + Alyssa’s wedding is coming up next week and I can’t wait to capture the day for them! Lauren and I had a blast spending a couple hours with them at Hopewell Furnace National Historical Park in the Elverson area. I really enjoy shooting here as it’s typically pretty empty of people and there are a lot of great nooks and crannies and scenery to interact with. Matt + Alyssa were super fun to work with as it didn’t take much to get Alyssa to smile and laugh with Matt around. Here are some of our favorites from the shoot!
