Engagement: Mallory & Jonathan

Fall engagement sessions are super popular here in Pittsburgh.  You can’t beat the weather (most of the time), the looks of the trees and the smell of fall in the air.  It’s my favorite time of the year.  Additionally, I get to see many of my couples for the following year so it’s a win-win all around!


Hartwood Acres is one of the Pittsburgh engagement session hot spots.  When you are there at any given time, you’ll likely see a handful of other photographers and their clients.  With the park surrounded by trees, beautiful gardens, and the most popular attraction – the mansion – you can’t go wrong selecting this spot for your engagement pictures.

Mallory and Johnathan are one of my 2018 couples and I was so excited to meet them in person for their engagement session!  It was a great way for us to spend some time together and get to know how we all will work together prior to the wedding day next year.  They brought a few changes of outfits for the session to give some variety for the pictures since we have so much variety with the grounds at Hartwood Acres.  My favorite part of the session?  Penny!  They brought along their sweet little pup and I honestly wanted to take her home with me!

While sunsets are always fantastic, I LOVE morning light.  It’s cool, crisp and the light is very soft.  All around, we had a fantastic session.  Weather, light, great couple, and adorable pup.  I cannot wait for the wedding day!
