johnstown, pa engagement – adam&ashley

October 26, 2017

When arriving at the Quemahoning Recreation Area for Adam and Ashley’s engagement session, I already knew their session was going to be wonderful! The beautiful fall leaves complemented by the 70 degree autumn day made for an optimistic perspective right from the start.

Adam and Ashley arrived with all the props that make up the essence of them as a couple. One of my favorites accents of their relationship was their combined love for music. They pulled out an acoustic guitar and concert ukulele and just started playing – almost as if they had practiced before 😉 Their sense of laughter and all around optimistic perspective on life made taking their photos extremely simple. Capturing their relationship as a couple consisted of them laughing, which (if you don’t know me) is my favorite thing!

One of my favorite conversations throughout their session was the story of their engagement. While at the beach, Adam & Ashley went out to a fancy dinner. Before they left, Adam surprised Ashley with an outfit for her to wear (every girl’s favorite thing) and they walked to a fancy Italian restaurant overlooking the ocean. Ashley said she knew it was going to happen during their trip, but was especially thinking that it would be during their dinner – I even assumed it was going to be during the dinner as they told me the story! I mean, it was overlooking the sunset on the ocean. Right after dinner, Adam suggested they talk a walk down to the pier. Thinking the proposal would happen then, Ashley was soon to be just a little disappointed when she realized they were actually just taking a walk. After their mile or so walk back to their hotel, Ashley said she walked back frustrated – why didn’t it happen then?! Later that same evening, Adam suggested they take a walk at night down to the ocean, when, right then and there, he bent down on one knee in the shallow water, and proposed. And just like that, Adam’s been surprising Ashley ever since.

I’m extremely excited to capture these two love birds on their wedding day in July 2018! Below are some of my favorite shots from their engagement session on Sunday.

WHY we're the perfect match


Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.
