There are few things that can fill my heart like a garden that is lush and full of blossoms. Every time I visit Waterperry Farm, I’m overjoyed to discover new plants and additions that Katherine the owner/gardener has added. I could spend an entire afternoon just exploring and seeking new sites. So to no surprise, when Matt & Seema chose Waterperry as the location for their engagement session, my heart leapt. Their romantic demeanor and overflowing love for one another was a perfect match for the location!
Words can’t express how much Justin & I enjoy a road trip together. When we were first married, that’s practically all we did. We would hop in the car and just drive. As life has gotten busy, our impromptu road trips have grown few and far between. So, when the opportunity arises to travel for a session, we leap at the opportunity!
In April, Justin & I drove to Hersey Pennsylvania to meet one of our upcoming fall couples, Jake & Kate, for their engagement session. Not only did we thoroughly enjoy the adventure together, but meeting these two was just a joy! We started off at the Hotel Hersey where the dogwood trees were in perfect bloom. Coming from Virginia where the Spring trees had pretty much finished blossoming, it was an added treat to get to see Spring in full glory in PA! Insert all the heart eyes. We left the Hotel and ended our session at the exact spot where Jake popped the question! Before heading back to VA, we joined Jake & Kate for dinner which was so wonderful. It means the world to us to get to spend quality time with our clients aka newfound friends!
Jake & Kate, we are SO looking forward to spending the weekend with you in October! See you soon!
