Dave & Kate | McConnells Mill Engagement

It’s probably fairly apparent that I am most inspired by nature and natural light in my photography. I do love some interesting architectural backdrops or a pop of flash in a dark room, but my photographic aesthetic has been most distinctly shaped by the natural world and scenery. And for Dave & Kate, I think it’s safe to say that their relationship has been largely cultivated within the playgrounds of nature - from kayaking ventures on nearby rivers to a memorable proposal on the hiking trail.  Dave has a deep love for nature and has shared his pursuit of natural adventure with a very willing and gracious Kate. Photographing these two surrounded by the beauty of nature, where their love has grown, made perfect sense. So we met at McConnells Mill State Park and spent the evening creating photographs along the rocky trails, beside the rushing Slippery Rock Creek, and in some gorgeous nearby rolling fields. Thank you, Dave and Kate, for such a lovely evening - you two are gems. I can’t wait for your outdoor wedding this autumn!
