Brooke and Jerod are high school sweethearts (although they didn't actually go to the same school!). They met at their church in Pittsburgh and continued to create one of the strongest relationships I have ever seen!  They persevered through long distance and pursued a Christ centered courtship that lead them to their engagement this summer.

For two years in college, Brooke and I were housemates at the cutest home on N. Allen Street in Happy Valley.  We would share our anticipation about getting engaged one day and dream up our weddings on Pinterest.  I was beyond thrilled when I found out these two got engaged in Myrtle Beach a few weeks ago & was so honored to be able to do their engagement photos.  Their hearts for Christ and their love for each other is palpable!

Jerod & Brooke: I wish you a lifetime of joy together pursuing your dreams and following our God! So happy for you both!2015-08-17_00252015-08-17_00262015-08-17_00242015-08-17_00292015-08-17_00232015-08-17_00222015-08-17_00012015-08-17_00082015-08-17_00212015-08-17_00202015-08-17_00192015-08-17_00182015-08-17_00172015-08-17_00162015-08-17_00152015-08-17_00142015-08-17_00132015-08-17_00282015-08-17_00122015-08-17_00112015-08-17_00102015-08-17_00092015-08-17_00072015-08-17_00062015-08-17_00052015-08-17_00042015-08-17_00032015-08-17_0002

Spencer and Liz are the sweetest people & their pup, Sadie Mae, will steal your heart in seconds! Liz mentioned being so surprised with Spencer proposed during a long car ride.  They have been dating for years and can't wait to tie the knot in a few short weeks!  I could relate to these two, getting married with a year left in college - I remember getting funny responses and weird looks, but I know they will cherish the time together in Pittsburgh while finishing up their degrees! Spencer & Liz, I can't wait to celebrate with you on August 23rd! Thank you so much for allowing me to capture your sweet love for one another!york_pa_engagement_session_johnwright_statepark york_pa_engagement_session_johnwright_statepark york_pa_engagement_session_johnwright_statepark york_pa_engagement_session_johnwright_statepark york_pa_engagement_session_johnwright_statepark york_pa_engagement_session_johnwright_statepark york_pa_engagement_session_johnwright_statepark 2015-08-03_0009york_pa_engagement_session_johnwright_statepark york_pa_engagement_session_johnwright_statepark york_pa_engagement_session_johnwright_statepark york_pa_engagement_session_johnwright_statepark york_pa_engagement_session_johnwright_statepark york_pa_engagement_session_johnwright_statepark york_pa_engagement_session_johnwright_statepark york_pa_engagement_session_johnwright_statepark york_pa_engagement_session_johnwright_statepark york_pa_engagement_session_johnwright_statepark york_pa_engagement_session_johnwright_statepark york_pa_engagement_session_johnwright_statepark 2015-08-03_0021

 

Ibrahim & Katie's DC Tidal Basin Engagement Session by Hannah Byrne

I asked Katie if she ever thought she'd be marrying someone from Turkey, she just laughed and smiled - I love the twists and turns that life brings, shaping each story to be its own.  Ibrahim is from Turkey and Katie is from Arizona.  They met in DC while Katie was in grad school and started dating.  Being a grad student, Katie said she felt confined to a small part of the city, but once she started dating Ibrahim they explored new and wonderful places in DC. One of them being the Hotel Tabbard Inn where they will be married this August! Their sweet spirits invited me into their life last weekend and we had such a beautiful night together.  Katie + Ibrahim - thank you so much for spending your evening with me! I cannot wait until your wedding day!2015-07-28_0003 2015-07-28_0004 2015-07-28_00052015-07-31_00042015-07-28_0002 2015-07-28_0006
