NEPA Engagement | Union Dale, PA {Brynna & Brent}

These two have quite the love story! They met in Alaska getting ready for a wedding they were both standing up in {Brynna was the maid of honor; Brent was the best man}, and when Brent got off the plane and saw Brynna waiting, it was pretty much love at first sight. These two worked side by side for a week finishing the wedding details when the bride got sick, and during that time together, they decided to start dating as well. There was one BIG problem…Brynna was leaving for Mexico in two weeks to live and teach for two years. So, they ended things while Brynna was out of the country to allow her to better adjust to the culture and life in Mexico and focus on relationships and teaching there. And Brent, every now and again, emailed her, found out how she was doing, prayed for her, and thought about her…A LOT! Brynna, not wanting to give false hope, carried on with life in Mexico, compared guys she dated to Brent, and emailed him back, every now and again. Fast forward 3 1/2 years, with Brynna back in the country and living and working out of state. Brent asked if they could meet up over Christmas, have coffee, and chat (well, something like that). And…to make a long and very interesting story short, they met up, still had feelings for each other, and started dating again {insert cheering, here!}. They got engaged on Memorial Day and are getting married Labor Day weekend, with only a few months to plan, but a lifetime to love! It’s a sweet, but complicated love story, and to make it even better, as Brynna’s mom, I got to capture this love in pictures. We decided on a “travel” theme, since much of B & B’s story revolves around travel, and we are so thankful that God brought them around the world and back together again! And…btw…B & B found out they were raised only 45 minutes away from each other when they met in Alaska!  {“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD.} Isaiah 55:8engagement session-7engagement session-9engagement session-10engagement session-11engagement session-14engagement session-16engagement session-21engagement session-22engagement session-23engagement session-25engagement session-27engagement session-28engagement session-30engagement session-32engagement session-33engagement session-40engagement session-41engagement session-42engagement session-43engagement session-45engagement session-46engagement session-1-2engagement session-3-2engagement session-4-2

Two Celebrations!

Back in June we had the privilege of taking Steph and Stephen’s engagement pictures.  Though we were unable to travel to Alaska for their “official” wedding, we caught up with them again in PA for a special day of celebration with their friends and family. Once again Steph put on her gown, had her hair done and made a bouquet to complete her ensemble. Two celebrations in two states for a great couple…and we are wishing you all the best for your life together!ImageImageImageImage

Alaskan Girl & Her Guy

Steph and Stephen came to the farm for an engagement photo shoot. She wanted “one good picture” but we were able to get a lot more than that, and had fun doing it! Steph grew up in Alaska, and is now a teacher in NEPA. The highlight of the shoot for her was that she was able to scoop out some frog eggs from the pond to take to her class.  She and her fiance will travel back to Alaska for their wedding, and we wish them the very best in their new life together!  ImageImageImageImage her
