I was approached by Nikki at the Armstrong County Bridal show in regards to her October wedding date. She stopped by my booth multiple times asking many different questions. I was so happy when we were able to finally get a booking in place!
Shortly after the booking was set in stone, we set up a time for engagement pictures. It was early February, and they wanted snow! We stalked the weather for a few days and were able to get everything in place for a snowy wonderland.
We started the shoot at Nikki & Kraig's home in downtown Kittanning. The home sits right on the river with a gorgeous view. It was over 100 years old, and a framed original deed hung in the foyer.
The home had been in Kraig's family for generations. So, whenever Nikki asked me if we could shoot inside the home to start, I OF COURSE obliged.
We had to include Bruno! I loved that he made this photo so very candid.
To my future couples: sometimes locations for your shoots aren't elaborate or over the top. Sometimes it is far more intimate and special to have them somewhere that truly means something to you.
We hopped in the vehicles and headed down the road to buttermilk falls. We didn't actually go to the falls, because i'm obsessed with the pines up above! The snow was heavy and weighing down the branches which created the seen we were both looking for.
Kraig+Nikki have been together 7 years,and the way that the two connect & vibe together is obvious.
I'm pretty sure Bruno had the most fun out of everyone, So many new smells!
Absolutely adored this winter walkway! Although I love the summer, I am always sad when the snow is gone.
We were headed back to the house when I saw this AMAZING rock formation and of course we HAD to stop!
We snagged a couple more photos outside of the house, along their amazing old fence! Nikki explained that it was original to the home. I can imagine all of the horse drawn carriages that strolled by in days gone past.
