I absolutely loved capturing Emily and Jeo’s engagement session at Valley Forge National Park! We had such a gorgeous fall day at the park with a backdrop of golden trees, and it was so great to spend some time with these two before I photograph their wedding day!
We had the most gorgeous day at Valley Forge for this engagement session, and Emily & Jeo were complete naturals in front of my camera. I loved the way Jeo got Emily to light up in front of the camera. These two never stopped smiling throughout their entire session together. These two have an adoration for each other that is absolutely infectious! As they and snuggled through the park I learned about their relationship and we chatted about their upcoming wedding at Barn Swallow Farm.
Even though Covid ruined Jeo’s original plan to propose on a trip to Mexico, he managed to pull off the sweetest proposal on Mother’s Day weekend with both of their families present. They spent the evening cooking for both of their moms and their family, and then everyone went outside to play fetch with their pup. Emily turned around and Jeo was on one knee. She was so surprised and it was the perfect moment for these two! It was so great getting to meet Jeo and Emily during their session and get to know them even better! It’s so much fun when my couples trust me to create beautiful moments for them through their genuine displays of affection, and Emily and Jeo did just that! I’m always so honored to get to know a couple and document their story during such an amazing season of their lives!
Valley Forge National Historic Park is less than 20 miles outside of Philadelphia, but feels like a world of it’s own. In the fall, this park shows off the colorful beauty of Pennsylvania! In addition to the stunning natural elements, you can also find tons of historical buildings at Valley forge, which are a great backdrop for those looking for more rustic engagement photos. Valley forge truly has so much to offer; open fields of tall grass, hills and valleys, historic buildings, forest areas, and so much more.
