Engagement Session Locations – Places We Like to Shoot in PA

Gettysburg Engagement Session

Start Here – What’s Important to You?

Every couple is unique and has a story. We always encourage our couples to think outside of the box when it comes to engagement photos. Here are some questions to ask yourselves to find a location that’s as unique as you are!

• Who are you as a couple?

• Do you like flower fields or downtown vibes?

• Where did you first meet?

• Where was your first date?

• Where was your first kiss?

Sometimes these questions can spark inspiration and make your shooting location all the more special. Personally, I’m a mother nature lover so if these questions aren’t your jam we can talk about other options! Usually, local parks give us a lot of flexibility, and were able to walk around, take our time, and get great shots in nature. Quick Tip: You can always schedule a rain date just in case!

Be Prepared!

NATURE: If we’ve settled on a location out in nature (i.e. woods, river, beach, etc.), be sure to come prepared for that specific location. If we’re heading out in the woods, be sure to bring bug spray and even shoes you don’t mind getting dirty.

TRAVELING: We love to travel and are on the road quite a bit especially around PA, NJ & NY. Destination engagement sessions are unique and fun! If you want to shoot somewhere that isn’t local to us, just let us know and we can discuss travel info. Keep in mind that travel fees will apply outside of an hour from Gettysburg, PA. Also please remember all location permits and fees must be covered by the couple.
