Matt and Natalia are originally from the Poconos, Pennsylvania, but now live in Washington… that’s practically across the country! It was important that they had their wedding in Pennsylvania where all their friends and family are, but this made the planning a bit more tricky. Planning a wedding is already no joke, but planning a wedding from across the country is probably even more stressful. We made plenty of attempts to setup an engagement session way before the wedding, but something always came up.
Soooo… this engagement session actually took place the week of Matt and Natalia’s wedding. Which was not typical for us, but it actually made the shoot extra fun! The fact that they were only a few days away from becoming husband and wife and I got to capture that excitement, was pretty special. Sometimes I even felt that the shoot was actually a good way for them to take a step back and remember what this wedding was all about. They laughed and they enjoyed some quiet moments together in the woods of Jacobsburg State Park. It was pretty awesome! After the shoot, I knew that we were in for a treat on their wedding day. These two are the real deal.
