Brianna and Dan Latrobe Engagement Session
Today’s blog is about our first engagement session in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. We met Brianna and Dan a few months ago when they reached out to us about their wedding photography. We met them in Monroeville to see if we would be a good fit for them. Almost immediately we realized we wanted to photograph this couple’s wedding. So, what do we look for before we say yes to photographing a couples’ wedding? Well number one, they have to be fun and nice. And, Dan and Brianna are certainly that. As we talked about their wedding day they were smiling, and we could see the genuine joy in their eyes about getting married. They were also excited about getting wedding pictures, which meant we were excited about taking them. So, they booked with us for their wedding on July 9th of 2016.
But, before wedding pictures comes an engagement session. We drove out to Latrobe and had a blast taking their pictures. Brianna’s family lives on the top of a ridge where the forest surrounds them, but they have wide open lawns surrounding their homes. The sun was perfect. The clouds were perfect. Brianna and Dan were perfect.
When we first got there we went to the field next door and did a few pictures to get Brianna and Dan warmed up to being in front of the camera.
After this we walked down the road to another neighbor’s house who had both a lake and an awesome tree swing, big enough for two.
About half way through the session we made our way back to Brianna’s house so her and Dan could change into another outfit. We met Brianna’s family, who were all very nice. (We’re excited to celebrate Dan and Brianna’s wedding with them next year!)
Olivia and I had seen that the sun was looking great and the open field next door would work well. So we walked back over there and were amazed by how beautiful the sun was. Brianna and Dan got comfortable in front of the camera and we captured some amazing moments between the two of them.
When the sun started to get dark we headed back to the house where we were met by Charlie, the family dog.
Lastly, we got a few detailed and conceptual shots to finish out the night.
