Spring had finally sprung, at least for a couple days, when Whitney and I met up with Kelly and Greig at Harrisburg City Island for their engagement session. Although their wedding is a little over a month away, these two were cool as cucumbers strolling around the attractions on the island.
One special spot in particular was the soccer field. Greig not only is a soccer player, but a big fan and coach as well. Kelly has spent lots of time on the sidelines and in the stands watching and rooting for him. It was fun to see them hanging out together in a spot that brings them such good memories.
I am looking forward to their wedding at Hershey Vineyards which will include their pup as flower girl!

Scott and I met up with Angela and John for a downtown Harrisburg, urban-meets-nature engagement shoot. Angela rocked some bright orange wedge shoes that were perfect for strolling with John in and around the side streets close to the Capitol complex. The fun loving couple enjoyed posing with the Waiting (aka “newspaper guy”) statue on Front Street and a garbage can spray painted with “believe”. The countdown is on to their September 6th wedding! See you both in 144 days!
Okay any gal who shows up in Louboutin’s for her engagement session wins serious bonus points from this photographer. Julie and Peter are both originally from the area but moved out to warm and sunny California (insert jealous here) a few years ago. Heading back in for the holidays, the couple requested a fun, urban session in Downtown Harrisburg. I love the natural smiles and candid nature these two put out. My personal favorite image is one of the last captured of Peter picking Julie up for a very cute, slightly Hollywood kiss shot. Adorable! We’ll see these two in June of 2014!
I love spunky, fun couples! When I saw Christen arrive to Ceolta’s for their engagement session, I knew it was going to be a fantastic hour spent with these two! She’s a fashionista after my own heart, donning a gorgeous blue dress with fun tights and perfect accessories! With the rustic environment of the empty Irish bar, we were able to play with a little lighting elements to simply make the image “pop”.
After meandering around the bar for a few shots, we bundled up and walked a few blocks around downtown Harrisburg to expand their engagement portfolio with some hip urban images. Overall an amazing session, despite the brisk December weather! We’ll be seeing these two in a few short weeks for their January 4, 2014 wedding!
During football season, things can get interesting between friends who have differing team preferences. Imagine that in the same household! Kara is a die hard Steelers fan while Jake is an avid Ravens fan. Naturally incorporating some friendly team rivalry during their engagement session was in order.
On a late fall evening, I met up with Kara and Jake in downtown Harrisburg, for a walk and shoot. Although facing it’s ups and downs, downtown Harrisburg does have a plethora of great off beat nooks and interesting back alley architecture. One of my favorite areas on our walk was right in the middle of State Street which was filled with tall, golden grass just begging to be the backdrop for a few images. We’ll be seeing these two and their gorgeous little man next year in May!
