Zoar Gardens Engagement Session
I have never been more nervous for an engagement session than I was Saturday evening for Danielle and Chad’s. Danielle is a dear friend from my younger years when I lived in Shippensburg, PA. We went to middle school and high school together, and when Chad proposed, I was the first person Danielle contacted! Bless her heart, they aligned their wedding day with my availability!
It was incredibly important to me that their engagement session went off without a hitch! After all, they traveled FIVE HOURS to come see me for their engagement session. I was nervous about the weather for the simple fact that this wasn’t a session that can just be rescheduled. I nervously watched the weather all day Saturday, even as I was on my way to our first location. Seeing the radar I called Danielle and suggested a location change before the weather further west was not looking promising at all. We decided to go further south to Zoar Gardens hoping the heavy rains would stay north. And goes what?! They did! We had a couple periods of a slight drizzle but nothing heavy enough to hide my camera!
Chad was intrigued by the Civil War time period buildings that fill the little village of Zoar, and made a comment that he’s thankful he wouldn’t have to take care of the gardens! The massive Zoar Gardens is breathtaking and beautiful. It certainly leaves you wondering how much upkeep the gardens take!
I joked that because it rained for their engagement session, it’s going to be BEAUTIFUL for their wedding day at Spring House Farm in Dry Run, PA. I’m super excited about shooting my first out of state wedding with some Appalachian Mountains in the background! Spring House is smack dab in the middle of the valley so everywhere we turn, we’ll see those beautiful mountains that I grew up loving. To say i’m excited for August is an understatement!!
Enjoy Chad and Danielle Zoar Gardens engagement session!
