We spent the day in Bethlehem, PA for Kim and Ryan’s engagement shoot. It was windy and chilly, but that didn’t stop us from capturing some great moments! We started at Kim + Ryan’s home, where we took some pictures with their adorable pup, Jace (Belgian Malinois). Special shout out to Noelle Nicolaou for the amazing job with Kim’s hair, which looked great despite being blown all over the place by unruly winds! Check out Noelle’s IG, @noelle.anastasia
Now for just some of the great shots from the day!
“We were thrilled when Ryan was up for shooting in a location that was new to him! First, he met us at our home so we could have a few photos with our pup, Jace. As soon as he walked in, he exclaimed he was excited to shoot on the hill at the end of our road. To us, it was just a pile dirt with overgrown weeds, but he saw it as this great location. The photos from that location, despite the wind, turned out beautiful and many family members that had frequented our home did not even recognize it!! Then we ventured down to Main Street, Bethlehem, where we shot photos inside Hotel Bethlehem and throughout downtown. He was full of creative ideas and you could see the lightbulbs going off as we walked around different locations that he would have us stop and take photos at. Even walking past one of the restaurants, he liked the vibrant colors of the glowing wall inside, and asked if we wanted to go in! Ryan is friendly, personable, and incredibly creative! He made our engagement shoot enjoyable, and as the pictures can prove, we could not stop smiling and laughing! He was even completely up for a “champagne toast” to end the engagement session with the sun setting behind us- one of my favorites captures from the day!! Our photos turned out better than we could have imagined and we have complete trust that Ryan and his team will be able to beautifully capture our big day.” – Kim & Ryan
