Brooke + Gwynn | Pittsburgh Engagement Portrait Photographer – Engagement Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography
Not too long ago, I received an email from a high school classmate of mine. Brooke and I played softball together when we were little girls as well. Time goes by so quickly! When Brooke told me that she was engaged and looking for a wedding photographer, I was honored that she thought of me. After meeting with her and her fiancé, Gwynn, I was excited to be a part of their wedding day.
These two really love each other. For their engagement session, they brought along the other love of their lives: Scout. Scout is a rescue dog. Gwynn and Brooke rescued her a few years back. Now, they cannot imagine life without her. With the help of Brooke’s mom, we got some really great shots of these three. What a fun engagement session!
I cannot wait to photograph their September 2013 wedding! Enjoy.
Megan + Shawn | Pittsburgh Engagement Portrait Photographer – Engagement Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography
Megan and Shawn are one of the couples whose wedding I will be photographing in 2013! As soon as I met them, I knew they were going to be fun to get to know throughout the upcoming year. They seemed more like friends than anything to me almost immediately. Their engagement session was great! We were extremely lucky. You never know what to expect in December. The day of their session came and the forecast was calling for rain. Thankfully, the sun was shining until just moments after the session ended and the rain began to fall! It was nearly 60 degrees for their “winter” engagement portraits.
I am super excited to be a part of this couple’s special day in July. Until then, enjoy these lovely engagement portraits! 🙂
Falling in Love | Pittsburgh Engagement Portrait Photographer – Engagement Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography
Renee and Jess are such an awesome couple. I met them back in May to discuss photographing their wedding next year. As soon as we sat down to talk, I could immediately tell that they were great not just as a couple but also individually. They mentioned at our initial meeting that they wanted fall photos. I am so glad that they waited until the leaves changed for their portraits! It was a blast photographing these two. Can’t wait to photograph their upcoming wedding next May!
Enjoy this fantastic couple! 🙂
Another week and another engagement session! The bride-to-be is near and dear to my heart. She was the first person I spoke to on my first day of class at “Cal U,” where we both studied Graphics and Multimedia. We started talking right away and quickly became friends. It’s hard to believe that it’s been over three years since that day.
I remember when she told me about her now fiance. She always knew he was the one. This couple is meant to be. After a long engagement, their big day is approaching! I am excited to be a part of this couple’s big day.
We spent the morning at Ohiopyle, climbing, hiking, wading water, exploring and taking photos! It was an absolutely perfect fall day and the scenery was gorgeous. I enjoyed photographing these two. Their happiness, excitement, and love are quite visible. They made my job easy.
Congratulations, again you two! 🙂
There is something about engagement sessions that I really love. As I photograph more and more couples, I realize that each couple has a unique relationship and story. This particular couple has a romantic movie-like story.
The two met a few years back at Kennywood while working their summer jobs. The bride was stationed at the Thunderbolt, while the groom was close by at the Phantom’s Revenge. She was friends with one of the guys who also worked at the Phantom. The bride would often go to hang out at the Phantom and chat. At the end of the summer season, the bride and groom went to visit another amusement park with a group of friends where they began their relationship. The two got engaged recently at the same amusement park where their relationship started…. adorable!
Needless to say, it was pretty much a given that part of their session would take place at the amusement park where they met – Kennywood. We had absolutely gorgeous fall weather that day. It was so much fun to photograph this couple’s engagement.
I always seem to have the best luck when I post a “freebie” session on Facebook. A few days ago, I asked via my Facebook page if anyone was interested in doing a “freebie” session this week. When I saw that someone replied right away, I got excited to get back behind my camera. To top it off, it was a request for an engagement session! I have been waiting to do an engagement session for a while now. I just love that it is such an exciting and fun time in a couple’s relationship.
I had a feeling that this engagement session was going to be a good one. However, I did not know that it was going to be so easy to capture this couple. They had the best time. They were cooperative and easygoing. My job was simple – sit back and capture the essence of them.
Enjoy the images of this newly engaged couple!
