This Winter Engagement Session was cold! It was in the 20’s on this winter morning! The kind of morning where you can see your breath and the first really cold day that we have had so far. Lori and Andrew were troopers! Thank goodness for the wonderful sunshine that gave us warmth and added gorgeous light for their engagement photos. Winter engagement sessions can be chilly, but I have found that they are often quite beautiful as well. I love the stark landscape contrasting with the remaining greenery. There is something so cozy, romantic and magical about winter. Polo(their sweet pup) came along for the photos sporting the cutest sweater a dog could possibly have. I just adore Polo’s look. Lori and Andrew are lucky enough to live right next to Valley Forge National Historic Park so that’s where we decided to do their session. How nice to have such fantastic outdoor space in your backyard! I loved the evergreens in the background, giving that classic wintry, holiday feel. We made a few stops throughout the park to some of their favorite locations. These two have been together 9 years already and their love for each radiates. Photographing engagement sessions are one of my favorite types of shoots. You get to really spend time and get to know the couple. It helps everyone get comfortable and ready for the wedding day. I always encourage booking an engagement session as part of your package. They are so much fun! Lori and Andrew will be getting married this summer at the lovely Blue Bell Country Club in Blue Bell PA. I am so happy for this lovely couple and I simply can’t wait to be a part of their wedding this August! Check out the feature on The Philly in Love Blog here.
