Addy & Nathan

Masonic Village

Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania


From the moment that I met Addy and Nathan for their consultation, I knew we would be a great fit for each other. They picked one of my favorite venues (Historic Shady Lane) for their wedding on May 28, 2016. 

When we started discussing their vision for their engagement session, Addy and Nathan said they wanted a mix of casual and dressy and they wanted a location with lots of flowers and castle-like features (if possible). I did a lot of scouting online and came across the Masonic Village in Elizabethtown. As soon as I saw it, I knew it would be the perfect backdrop for Addy and Nathan's engagement session.

I did something during their session that I've never done at any other. I started off their session by taking a silhouette. I just loved how the trees and fields fell into darkness and highlighted Addy and Nathan against the sky.

I just love how beautifully soft this picture is. It shows the real love connection between the two of them.

I was scouting locations before their engagement session and came across this small farm that was off the beaten path from the main road. The sky started to become a little scary at this point but we pressed on and it was totally worth it.

I let the two of them "just be" for a few minutes and gave them some distance so that I could capture beautiful expressions like this. It's pretty safe to say that Nathan puts a smile on Addy's face.

This is definitely one of my favorites from the entire shoot. I got on the ground and shot through some nearby wheat grass and it creamed a dreamy effect for a dreamy moment between the two of them.

Nathan loves fountains and was pretty excited when I told him that there were a few fountains on the property that we would be shooting near. I had to make sure to include the fountain in a few shots for him.

While I love to be super creative and create non-camera aware images, I always capture some simple camera aware portraits as everyone always love them. This definitely has to be one of my favorites.

I love the way that Nathan wraps Addy up and makes her feel safe.

The sky really started taking a turn for the worse so we got in one last epic shot before we headed out to the last location in hopes of beating the rain. Unfortunately, we didn't beat the rain but we definitely ended the session on a high note. Does it get any better than this?
