Dan & Kayla | Bethlehem, PA

Guys, this shoot pretty much encompasses everything great in life, so be warned.  There's gorgeous golden light, there are cocktails, and there is ice cream.  I absolutely loved everything about working with this couple, and I really can't wait another second to share a glimpse of our night with you! Dan and Kayla are friends of ours.  It seems like a million years ago, but we met Dan through some of Dave's creative endeavors as a drummer.  Dan and Dave were in a band together for a little while, and when the band became more devoted to touring, Dave passed the sticks on to his younger brother Ans.  From sharing that same social circle, I've gotten to know Kayla as just the sweetest, most stylish girl!  Dan and Dave still keep in touch and work on music together, but we rarely get to line up schedules and hang out, so when Kayla contacted me to photograph their wedding next June, I knew we had to do an engagement session together.

Often, I'll suggest that a bride and groom choose somewhere special and meaningful to them to have their engagement photos taken.  Kayla was immediately full of great ideas, and she and Dan chose the Bethlehem Rose Gardens (close to where they used to live) and The Cup, which is the greatest little kitschy ice cream place  in Bethlehem.  Both of these places were really special to them and I was so thrilled to capture their photos in two totally different settings.  We even had time to stop for a cocktail at The Mint between the gardens and The Cup, as we wanted the full effect of The Cup's neon signs at night.  It was a perfect and relaxing night with friends and I am in love with every photo we captured at their session.

Thanks for choosing us, Dan and Kayla!  Can't wait for your wedding!
