Penn State Engagements : Kristen and Drew

A few weekends ago, I make the trek up to State College, Pennsylvania (which, by the way, I can never spell that state correctly!!!) to meet up with Kristen and Drew at Penn State.  They are both alums of the school and it just so happens to be where they met, so they had especially requested we do their engagements there.  While we were there, we took the opportunity to hit up all their favorite spots, from the engineering buildings where to Drew spent his years, to the Old Main building which rises up so beautifully among the campus, to the very spot where Kristen and Drew met…and more! It was really fun for me to be able to walk around with them at the campus because it really gave me such amazing insight into this lovely couple.  I loved seeing them reminisce about their moments here together, listening to their stories from the past, and seeing what a bond they share. I really had a fabulous time on this shoot (which we got in just in time — the next weekend the campus was covered in snow!) and I can’t wait for their wedding next summer.

    Annabelle – we LOVE THEM!!! Thank you so much for capturing everything that is so important to us :) We could not be more happy with the pictures, and truly cannot wait for you to shoot our wedding!!

  • Drew

    Thank you soo much for all the great pictures, Annabelle! They all turned out fantastic and we could not be more pleased. We wish we captured a picture of you 9 feet up in the tree at Old Main! From how easy it was to work with you, to the final product, we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. Looking forward to June…thanks again!
