Pennsylvania Wheat Field Engagement Session

Jun 1, 2023

A lot of fun can be had on 200 acres of farmland. Also, 90 minutes is nowhere close to enough time to capture all of its beauty!

This was the predicament I found myself in during Amanda and Steven’s Pennsylvania wheat field engagement session.

Rolling hills. Endless fields. Contagious love. What more could you ask for? How about adding in some puppy snuggles? Amanda and Steven brought along their two adorable pups, Daisy and Padme, to join in the fun. These two were so cute and listened so well! The puppy kisses they gave were the best. Extra sloppy. I loved that Amanda and Steven incorporated them into the session. It was a perfect time for an updated family photo.

The pups were cheesing hard!

The acres of land we explored during their session is extra special to Amanda. It’s actually the farm she grew up on! Other immediate family also live in the same area. The hill is actually coined “Bittner Hill” because their family owes so much of the land. How cool is that?! I love the tightness they all have together. When Amanda was little, she used to help her dad in the fields.

It was awesome listening to her talk about the farm, its layout, and the stories from her childhood.

How cool must it have been to grow up on a farm?

When she lived there, her family raised pigs. Also the coolest thing! Now she is about to marry a man whose favorite animal is a pig. It was meant to be! Crazy how things come full circle. Although, Amanda grew up with them, she definitely isn’t for owning a pet pig, even though Steven hopes one day that will change. For now, they will stick with their adorable puppies.

I feel like I could talk about these two for several more paragraphs!

I got to know them so well just during their Pennsylvania wheat field engagement session! They have so many exciting things coming after their wedding in July 2023 at the beautiful Barn at Silverstone. More about that in their wedding blog, so stay tuned! Until then, enjoy some of my absolute favorites and let the countdown begin.

XOXO ~ Heather Marie
