I woke up one Saturday morning with a message from Carmen saying she had a last minute idea to celebrate her and her husband’s anniversary. She had her dresses and flowers ready to go and all she needed was a photographer! So we hit the road for the countryside of Southern Pennsylvania, to a spot very special to them.
Back when they were dating, Brandon would bring Carmen up to this beautiful chapel with a gorgeous view of the mountain side, and they would set up a picnic. These picnic dates became regular and very significant in their relationship.
Brandon decided that chapel picnic spot will be where he proposes to Carmen. So he sets up a table cloth with fancy silverware, to make this picnic a bit more upscale than the past, and escorts his beautiful girl to the mountain side where he proposed. (And obviously she said yes 😉)
Fast forward three years.
We had so much fun enjoying beautiful views and laughing together during their anniversary photo session! And look at her bouquet!!! 😍I always encourage brides to bring along a bouquet of fresh flowers or something extra to add flare to their images. Carmen nailed it with her personally handcrafted bouquet! We mixed it up, capturing images with and without the bouquet, to make sure they had plenty of variety in their images!
Carmen & Brandon,
Your love and happiness is infectious! I walked away from our session with a huge smile on my face knowing I had not only captured beautiful images for you two, but spending time with you filled my soul! I love every chance I get to capture amazing couples 🥰 Thank you for letting me capture this last-minute, super fun anniversary session for you two. It was a blast seeing you both in person again, because Instagram chats just aren’t enough sometimes 😉
