Ashley and Jarett contacted me last December about their upcoming Bell Gate Farm wedding. Ashley excitedly shared with me how Jarret proposed at Magnolia Market at the Silos while on a trip to Waco, Texas. We instantly bonded over our mutual love of all things Joanna Gaines and Magnolia Farms! As we got chatting more about their wedding plans during their consultation, we discovered that we’re neighbors! Ashley grew up two houses down from where we live! How fun is that!?
We originally had their Lehigh Valley engagement session planned for the end of October, but unfortunately, we had to reschedule twice due to unfavorable weather conditions. They both were such good sports and were so understanding about having to reschedule multiple times!
When the day finally arrived, Ashley requested that we do the portrait session at her uncle’s home in Northampton, Pennsylvania since this is a special place to her. As soon as I arrived, I was SO excited to shoot there. It’s an amazing property with a beautiful home, barn and lots of space to roam around. In true November fashion, it was super chilly and breezy, but Ashley and Jarret were absolute troopers and are such pros at having their portraits taken!
We found the most beautiful glowy light in between the clouds that were rolling through. It was totally worth waiting for the weather to cooperate with us! They finished up their portraits by popping a customized bottle of champagne to celebrate this special season in their lives!
Ashley and Jarret, I am so excited to photograph your wedding next year! Enjoy taking a peek a handful of some of my favorites from their Lehigh Valley engagement session!
