Sunset Pinnacle Overlook Engagement Session

Oct 27, 2021

Sunset Pinnacle Overlook Engagement Session

Fall is one of my favorite seasons of the year. The weather is just perfect (especially for a girl who sweats so easily). The fall colors are vibrant. It’s just a magical time of year. Oh, and sunsets are somehow a little extra special during this time of year, too.

All these things were on point for this sunset Pinnacle Overlook engagement session.

Alaina and Adam wanted an outdoor, adventurous feel to their engagement session. Being outside and exploring new places is one of their favorite things to do together. So it was a perfect backdrop to show off their love. As soon as they saw Pinnacle Overlook, they were in love. They couldn’t get enough of the views and the beautiful landscape around them.

Their eyes instantly lit up!

I love all the little treasure locations around Lancaster County and watching as people get to see them for the first time. This job has allowed me to explore so much more and find new secret spots. On top of the beautiful sites, they had the perfect evening, in terms of weather, too. Not too hot or cold, and not a cloud in the sky. It was honestly the best evening I have ever had at that location.

Just magical!

But, above all else, Alaina and Adam are the absolute cutest people around. Alaina’s smile is so contagious, and it seriously just lights up the room. Looking back through these favorites, I couldn’t help but instantly start smiling as I see her light up every time she looks over at Adam.

She is so happy around him.

I can say the exact same thing for Adam, too. I don’t know what it is, but the way he looks at her, you can just tell how smitten he is for her. Truly just in love and willing to do whatever to make her smile. It’s a perfect combination. I can’t help but be so thankful that they chose me as their photographer.

Feeling so blessed!

They were actually guests at one of my earlier weddings this year, Renee and Brian’s. Check out that blog post here. I didn’t get to meet them that day, but I’m so glad I made an impression because I would have definitely missed out on an incredible couple to have in my HMP family! Once we had our initial chat, I totally went back through the reception photos of that wedding to find them, and instantly, I did. The same big smiles were on each of their faces while dancing together on the dance for.

Their love radiates out of them!

I can’t wait to see that happiness shine through when it’s their wedding day next year at the beautiful Manor at Mountain View! It is going to be all smiles, and I’m just so excited to capture every moment! It is going to be beautiful because they absolutely nailed their sunset Pinnacle Overlook engagement session. I can’t wait for August 2022!

XOXO ~ Heather Marie
