Chilly Historic Poole Forge Engagement Session

Mar 16, 2022

Almost every one of my HMP Couples surprises me in a different way! Whether it is their story of how they met or their love for ice cream or how they found me.

The reasons are endless!

It happened yet again when Casey and Cullen became an HMP couple! These two live in South Carolina currently but are getting married in Pennsylvania and found me as their wedding photographer. That alone blows my mind because there are so many incredible photographers out there, but they found me and chose to work with me!

That alone means the world to me!

However, the part that truly surprises me is that they were willing to drive the whole way up to Pennsylvania this past week just do have their chilly Historic Poole Forge engagement session with me. And they brought their maid of honor along for the fun, so I could meet her! Sign me up! Now I not only got to really know my couple at the engagement session, but on the wedding day, I’ll now already have a close friend in her as well!

Can June 2023 come a little quicker?

Casey and Cullen have the sweetest hearts! The entire session they were so incredibly easy to talk to. The jokes were constant. And the laughter was contagious. I mean, we seriously talked about everything. I felt like they had been elementary school friends that I had finally caught back up with.

It just came so naturally!

As it so many times does with each of my HMP Couples! I am so blessed for everyone who chooses to work with me! Casey and Cullen, that goes for you too! Thank you for finding me! I am SO extremely excited for your day at the beautiful Barn at Silverstone. It is going to be an incredible day! I’ll be sure to get my outfit from Home Goods (haha)!

Cullen, you may never live that one down!

I hope you guys had a great drive back home! Thank you so much for making the trip up to PA and for choosing good old Amish Country and Historic Poole Forge to get your photos taken at! It truly is a beautiful backdrop, but you two stole the show! See for yourself in some of my favorites below!

You two seriously crushed this session!

XOXO ~ Heather Marie
