Maddie + Jimmy | Harrisburg Capitol Engagement Session

Sometimes you just meet someone and you know, you know? Maddie and Jimmy are those types of people-- I met Maddie when I was interviewing babysitters for my little love back in 2016. I needed someone to hold down the fort while I shot weddings and my husband was working, and in stepped Maddie, all blonde and lovely and bubbly and everything I could ever ask for in a babysitter. Some of you may recognize her as your child's teacher at Holy Name, everyone else will see her smile and just know that she's gotta be one of the sweetest people ever. In Jimmy, Maddie's found the love of her life. He's supportive and HILARIOUS and the perfect ying to her yang. 

First we headed to the Capitol in Harrisburg. The area surrounding the building has several interesting textures, patterns, and pops of color perfect for a summertime engagement session. If there's anything I can tell you to expect from this session, it's lots of laughter, love, and a whole lot of sweetness <3 It's a....Graham Slam, if you will ;)

FUN FACT: Maddie and Jimmy's first kiss (sorry mom!) was after they both sloppily ate some 3B's ice cream, so naturally we decided to get ice cream at 3Bs. BEST CHOICE EVER.

We ended the session during glorious golden hour. A field nearby the Philter studio is the perfect backdrop for ooey-gooey lovey photos, and this couple did not disappoint. 

M + J, I can't even wait for your wedding. It's going to be incredible!!!!!

Mandy + Cole | Two Funky Gals in Love

There is not much to say about Mandy and Cole other than the fact that we immediately clicked. They came in, we joked around with each other, and they told me they wanted to make things as easy as possible, and I had what they needed. We planned their engagement session and chatted about their wedding later this fall, and everything fell into place. 

The girls own a cute house that is almost too far from a Target that it makes me cry, BUT they have two (three now!) dogs, a great sense of style, and a banging sense of humor! I showed up on a chilly afternoon for some engagement photos at home with their dogs, and then we went down to the icy Susquehanna "just for fun" and got some fun shots along the river and woods. 

As Cole would say, "Okay sis, you're going to post a blog post about us? Like for real?!"

(I can actually hear her saying that though -insert cry-laugh face here lol-)
