Last weekend, I met up with Liz and Phil to photograph their engagement session. Liz is my cousin - and one of the biggest Penn State fans that I know! Choosing the Penn State Berks campus as the backdrop for their photoshoot was a pretty easy decision. This location has a lot of meaning for Liz, and I personally love it because there are so many incredible little nooks for portrait backdrops. And, I'm pretty sure Phil is happy anywhere that Liz is by his side. So, Penn State it was!
Liz and Phil had hoped for a wintry backdrop for their photoshoot - and even though the temperatures were definitely winter-appropriate that day, there was no snow to be found. We were, however, gifted some pretty incredible golden light. At the end of our session, we even happened upon an amazing field of yellow flowers. That was a pretty great consolation prize for being denied the snow that we were hoping for. Mother Nature is unpredictable, just like so many aspects of life. At the end of the day, all that matters is how you spend your time and who you spend it with. Everything else is just noise.
That being said, I LOVE how their photographs turned out! I hope you enjoy this little preview from their session. Congratulations, Liz and Phil! I wish you both a lifetime of happiness together.
(Disclaimer - Liz and Phil brought the empty champagne bottle along that they celebrated with on the night of their engagement!! Awesome, right?! They toasted to their engagement - but they used ginger ale this time. We wouldn't want anyone to get scolded for an innocent, alcohol-free toast on Penn State grounds.)
