It was a chilly late March morning, when I met with Kelly and Michael for their Washington Crossing State Park engagement session. Considering the rustic theme of their upcoming November wedding, this park was just perfect…period homes, a beautiful park setting, the river and bridge were all within close walking distance. Add to that the fact that the park was free of the usual crowds that you find in the evenings and it may even convince this totally non-morning person (aka me) to start doing all morning sessions from now on… ok ok maybe not that drastic, but it was definitely nice to not have to worry about avoiding people everywhere. It allowed me to focus on my couple, getting to know them and capturing them and their love for each other.
We even saw something pretty cool… scroll down to the last photo… 🙂
These two lovebirds had met in middle school and been friends for many years. It wasn’t until late in high school though that they realized something was there and have been together ever since… 🙂
Their proposal story is so cool… 🙂
“Mike told me to take a day off from work so he could take me to the city. We spent the day in NYC. Mike made reservations at a fancy steak house and then afterward he got us VIP reservations for top of the rock an observatory that goes up 70 feet and let’s you come out to the most breathtaking view of NYC at night. We walked around for a little and then he got on one knee and proposed (:”
And what a treat to see this as we were walking around for this Washington Crossing State Park Engagement Session. It felt like such a trip back in time.
Film photography is quickly becoming my new favorite thing. This session was shot about half and half on digital and film using fuji 400h, developed and scanned by The Find Lab.
