A few days ago I headed up to Hotel Hershey for an engagement session with Michael and Tatiana. I must say that I have the absolute best clients in the world. Michael and Tatiana were so amazing to work with. Loving what you do makes your job easy but it gets even easier when you have a couple like this in front of your camera. I did not have to say much to them. They are just really in love and it shows in every single image. It was really hard to narrow down my favorites because each photo had more emotion and expression than the last. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding this summer.

Here are a few of my favorites…

From the moment I met Bryce and Kyle, I knew that we were going to get along great! Kyle and I both play music so that was the first good sign. Then I watched and listened to them talk to each other. They are madly in love and are so perfect as a couple. The thing that I love most about being a wedding photographer is getting the chance to capture real emotion and real expression on people………I want my clients to see their personality in my photos. Bryce and Kyle are the perfect couple for a photographer like me. They are so expressive…..they laugh a lot…….they love each other………I can’t wait to photograph their wedding!

Here are a few shots from the engagement session…
