THE JOURNAL

Ballando in Toscana Engagement

“Come’ bella c’e la luna brilla e’ strette, Strette como e’ tutta bella a passeggiare, Sott’er celo de Roma”

Starting this journal entry with some enchanting Italian lyrics because, honestly, the English language just isn’t romantic enough to start this off for this heavenly engagement session. I don’t think I’ve ever had a couple dance and frolic as much as I had AJ & Jack do during their session, but it was just the mood! You know…dancing our way through the fountains in Tuscany… or at least that’s exactly what this engagement session emulated. And we just ran with it!

Our couples so far this year have been absolutely slaying their engagement sessions, and it’s making our hearts so happy! From dancing to frolicking…giggling then voguing…they have been nailing it all! Each and every session has brought so much romance and elegance! I cannot even imagine the levels of romance they will have on their wedding day, but I know it will be magic!

AJ & Jack live down south and traveled all the way to Pennsylvania for their engagement session! AJ started her day by visiting my best friend & beauty empire queen Talitha Collado of Collado Custom Cosmetics to get her makeup done! From there, they both met me at (drum roll please…) LONGWOOD GARDENS! I told you, it’s the crowd favorite this year! There were no complaints here. With the soft overcast, we had that day, we spent hours dancing through the fountains & Italian topiaries. To say I overshot is an understatement! This is the most extensive engagement gallery I ever sent out by far, but trust me, it was so worth it!

AJ & Jack, thank you so much for such a wonderful evening! I had the most incredible time getting to meet you both in person and getting to know you guys on a deeper level! We are so thankful you asked us to be your wedding photographers and help you through this journey! Your wedding day at the Omni is going to be pure magic, and we are counting down the days until we get to celebrate with you!

xx, April
