Wedding and engagement session season is starting! Colleen and Erik’s (yes, spelled the same way as yours truly) engagement session was the first engagement photo session of the season. Their wedding is in a few months, but since they are doing most of the planning from D.C., time was limited to get their pictures done. We met at Valley Forge National Park on a Sunday, at noon. Now, noon is usually one of the hardest times to photograph people during (the location of the sun makes complimentary lighting difficult). But even though we didn’t get to use the golden hour light that most sessions are scheduled for, we found some great areas to make up for it. The arch ways and corridors of the Washington Memorial Chapel worked so well.
Colleen and Erik were so laid back and we all had a great time. They brought they puppy – Biscuit – with them. He nearly stole the whole show. I brought puppy babysitter, Regan, to help out (a role she absolutely loved).
Here are some of their valley forge engagement session photos.
