Gantry Plaza State Park Engagement - Chelsy and Will

Gantry Plaza State Park Engagement 5.jpg

Chelsy and Will make my heart sing. One of my favorite parts of the session came as we were just getting started, when Will admitted that he doesn't love having his picture taken. This was great because it gave me the opportunity to set a context for our engagement session -- it wasn't about taking photos, it was about Chelsy and Will taking some time to be with each other, to breathe and relax together in the very park where he proposed to her a few months ago. I also loved Will's confession because it revealed something huge about him -- that he is willing to do what it takes to make Chelsy happy.

I have to say, it took Will about five minutes to come around, and if he wasn't enjoying himself, he was really great at faking it. :P

Chelsy and Will, thank you for inviting me to spend the afternoon with you during this exciting time in your lives! You wear your generous spirits and warm, giving attitudes on your sleeve. It makes absolute sense that you both spend your days in service to others, working at hospitals to improve the quality of people's lives. It also makes sense, and makes me warm and giddy, that you've committed your lives to each other. I am so happy for you and for your upcoming wedding!
