Engagement Pictures in North East
Joe & Megan’s Love Story
Joe & Megan wanted to capture Engagement Pictures in North East, the small rural town in which their love story unfolded. It set the perfect mood for this engaging couple.
We met up with this couple in the heart of North East, Gibson Park. The park features old trees and a water fountain that sits on the very location of the original church in town. Our team took advantage of the soft lighting and tree covered backdrop to create some intimate images for Joe & Megan. We even had them take a stroll through the park with the church they’ll be tying the knot at in the background. It was a nice way to bring together their wedding plans with the engagement photos.
After grabbing some shots at the park we strolled over to the couple’s first date spot a favorite local eatery, Johnny B’s Restaurant. We lucked out when the booth they sat in the beginning of their love story was open for them to relive that moment with a cup of steaming coffee and rhubarb pie. The restaurant graciously surprised Joe & Megan with a Gift Certificate as a thank you for commemorating a part of their tale there. After enjoying some refreshment we moved outside for a few shots on the street. The brick wall alongside downtown businesses gave us the ability to capture a striking shot that’s one of my favorite engagement pictures in North East.
Finally, we moved to Arundel Winery to finish up the Engagement Pictures in North East. Joe & Megan explained that they frequent the winery for it’s delicious beverage and lively musical shows. Being a bit of a romantic, Joe built up to his proposal with a few bottles of wine that were aptly named about romance. We took some photos at the front of the impressive structure and then finished up with a moonlit picnic behind the winery. The vineyards set a gorgeous backdrop. A train whizzed past during one of the photos tying together another famous element of living and loving in North East.
