Nature Filled Engagement Session in Pequea, PA

Aug 1, 2019

I pulled up to their house only a few miles from the Susquehanna River, out on the back roads of Pequea, PA. Barely out of the car for two seconds, the joyful sound of two dogs barking at the window instantly made me feel at home! I knew this was going to be an engagement session to remember!

I mean come on…I absolutely am a sucker for pups!!

As I walked up to their front door, Hannah and Will welcomed me in with big smiles and open arms! Along with their two pups as well. I can’t get enough of slobbery kisses!! We instantly chatted as if we had been friends who hadn’t been able to see each other for awhile. I even got a tour of their cute fixer upper and shared tales of ours as well! It just felt like home.

HMP Couples are diamonds in the rough.

They are a beautiful combination of caring, joy-filled sweethearts and adventurous go-getters! Determined but also patient. A perfect pairing who are madly in love with each other and cherish each moment spent beside each other’s side, even the small ones! Love cuddling up on the couch for a movie in but always finding time for a long hike out in nature! They are perfect for each other, in every way!

They are unique!

And Hannah and Will? They embrace every aspect of an HMP Couple to a T! They’re so support of one another and push each other to do more! They care for each other and can’t get enough of one another. Listening to them talk about their wedding plans and life together just brought a constant smile to my face the entire session. I mean my cheeks started to hurt by the end! They are just so happy together. They couldn’t see their life without the other.

Their love is strong and binding!

Will was always making sure Hannah was okay walking in her heels and was constantly ready with a hand when she needed support. Calling out roots, dips, and branches. He always made sure she was good! With as strong of a woman that Hannah is, Will is the perfect balance of support she needs to chase her dreams. But don’t get me wrong, Hannah is just as supportive and confident in all that Will does, too!

These two are a beautiful combination.

Like peanut butter and jelly. Grilled cheese and tomato soup. Sprinkles and ice cream.

Hannah and Will, thank you for being such an incredible HMP couple! Thank you for supporting each other. Thank you for showing unconditional love and constantly laughing together. And thank you for bringing your puppies to part of the session. 🙂 My engagement session dreams have been achieved! You two are going to be such a strong light in this world, and I can’t wait to see what you do together. Continue to challenge each other, but be there when one needs a little help! And most importantly, continue to always take hikes together! Enjoy the time away from everything else, and just talk about what’s on your mind!

I can’t wait for your big party next year!!!

XOXO ~ Heather Marie
