Zach & Dana in Lancaster
This year I gifted Dana, my long-time friend and repeat model, a couples photo session with her boyfriend, Zach, as a birthday gift!
Per my usual city portrait routine, we met at the Water Street Parking Garage and off we went, taking photos wherever I saw the opportunity!
Despite it being November, the weather really was not bad.
Just a few weeks after these photos were taken, Dana and Zach got ENGAGED! So while these technically aren't "engagement photos," they're certainly close enough, lol.
I will be coming out of my "wedding retirement" to take their wedding photos this June at Smoker Farms!
There are a few types of photography I am very selective with who I offer it to, and weddings are one of them. Wedding days are long, tiring, demanding, and often hectic. You only get one chance to get the photos and you have to be "on" all day, making sure you capture all the important moments. Thennnn you're left with 1000+ photos to cull through, then edit. Props to wedding photographers- you're stronger than me!
Thankfully Dana's wedding won't be too photo-heavy and I'll know a lot of the guests because Dana, Zach, and I all graduated together. Plus I'm pretty familiar with Dana's family at this point due to our decade+ of friendship, lol.
Congratulations Zach + Dana!
Look at the BEAUTIFUL purple sunset!!
