HOLLY & LES | STATE COLLEGE, PA ENGAGEMENT

I can't believe it is June and we are half-way through this year.  It seems like the year just started! It has been a little quiet here on The Blog lately, (more on that soon) but what better way to the summer than with an engagement session with a lovely couple?  

A friend referred  Holly and Les to be and they inquired  about having me photographing their wedding in August.  After deciding to move forward with Sincere Touch Photography, booking an engagement session was next. They also wanted to add a second shooter for their wedding day and I was thrilled to ask my friend Laura. She also came along with me during this shoot to get acquainted with Holly and Les before their big day as well. (Tips on choosing your second shooter coming to The Blog soon)

Since Penn State has played a big part in their lives Holly and Les decided to have some of their photos taken on campus. It had been raining on and off all day on Saturday  and earlier in the day they were calling for thunderstorms during the time of our scheduled session time- so, many prayers were sent that the rain would hold off and I brought my giant umbrella just in case. 

Needless to say, the rain held off and our session went on as planned.

The look on Holly's face in these two  image ( above and below) is priceless and says so much. It as it she is looking into the very soul of whom her heart loves.

When you love and laugh abundantly, you live a beautiful life.

The "duck pond" in campus sure was a serene spot.

Of course...Old Main.

"WE ARE...Getting Married"

After the we finished with photos on campus, we drove up to Spring Mills to Les' parents  property. Being a city girl traveling through countryside, I will say it was a beautiful view, despite the grey skies. Holly had mentioned that they wanted to do something that is memorable to her and Les and that was to feed the goats powered donuts!  Cuteness overload for sure. This is something the two of them did on their first date before watching the sunset. Although there wasn't a beautiful sunset to watch on this particular evening due to dreary skies, I'm glad I was able to capture this moment for them. (The goats were happy, too!)

Then they fed each other powdered donuts.

Every time I see this image it make me think of Psalm 23:2-
"He makes me lie down in green pastures..."

Despite the weather and the grey skies their engagement session went well. Laura and I had a lot of fun with this couple and got to learn a little more about them before their big day in a few months. Their love for each other is so evident. I am so glad the rain held off, in fact our prayers were answered—as soon as the session was over and I got in the car to drive down the dirt road, the rain started to fall.

Have a beautiful day!
