Nicole and Andreas

Nicole and Andreas wanted to do a fall engagement session. We had to keep pushing the date back as the fall color was very slow to peak this year. I had scouted out Oregon Ridge Park and Cylburn Arboretum but we finally settled on the Hampton National Historic Site. This 18th century estate was the largest private home in America when it was completed in 1790. I absolutely love shooting here since it has all sorts of wonderful trees, barns, stonework, and gardens. This was a fun session. I climbed some trees, rolled around in leaves, and even hopped into the Loch Raven Reservoir at the end of the day. If I’m filthy by the end of the day it usually means the session went really well.



Fred & Kaitlyn

We packed our gear and headed north for a drive that ended up taking close to 2.5 hours instead of 60 minutes that we were expecting. I blame myself for wanting to take the scenic route instead of getting on the highway . Having traveled up that way for weddings before, I should have know the traffic was going to be horrible. After what seemed like an eternity, we made it to our destination. This was my first time at the Wissahickon Trail in PA and I was throughly impressed. We first met these Fred and Kaitlyn at a wedding we did last year and got along with them really well. We spent a few hours exploring the trail and walking around in the woods. The weather was beautiful and we all had a really great time. We finished the afternoon at Curtis Arboretum which had a pretty big festival going on at the time. We managed to find a nice quiet area away from the crowds. Overall, it was a pretty fantastic day.
