Ridley Creek Park Engagement Session

Mar 15, 2023

If happiness could be narrowed down to one action, Danielle and Frank mastered it at their Ridley Creek Park Engagement Session.

The session started out like most. Danielle and Frank weren’t used to being in front of the camera, so they were pretty shy at first. Not sure where to put their hands. Giggling because it was a little awkward. All normal things. My husband and I still are that way when we have to be in front of the camera.

It’s just a non-typical experience.

As I switched them into a different position, all of a sudden, their personalities exploded out of them. Frank was standing behind Danielle with his arms wrapped around her. They grabbed hands, and instantly, Danielle’s smile lit up her face, and she cozied up close against him. What was a shy couple quickly changed into one of the cutest!

She was just so happy and comfortable in his arms!

From then on, Danielle and Frank were so relaxed and just enjoyed their time together. Plus, we all hit it off so well. During the entire session, I was learning so many things about the two of them and all of their adventures. These two have traveled all over, and I loved hearing their stories. It’s a fact that their relationship will never be dull! They just find so much comfort in each other!

Isn’t that what it’s all about?

Their Ridley Creek Park engagement session has me counting down the days till their Inn at Grace Winery wedding in July 2023. I know exactly what to do to kick off their husband and wife portraits to bring out that love and happiness instantly. It is going to be an incredible day. Filled with so much laughter, joy, and great company! I can’t wait to celebrate these two!

They truly are such a special couple!

If these favorites below are any indication of how their wedding day is going to go, I don’t know how I’m going to narrow down my favorites on that day! All it took was a little hug from behind and these two were naturals!

XOXO ~ Heather Marie
