Hartwood Acres Engagement
Kim & Matt are tying the knot in May of 2019, and I had the honor of capturing some engagement portraits for them a few weeks ago! Kim rocked not one, but TWO, killer blue dresses. We explored the gorgeous Hartwood Acres park including their castle like architectural structures. Not to mention it was an awesome time to shoot as the springtime flowers were in full bloom! Looking forward to their wedding at the Omni Bedford Springs Resort next May!
From Matt: Kim was out celebrating her birthday with her friends and I was out with a group of my friends (most of whom will be groomsmen). One of Kim’s friends (Althea) was dating a friend of mine, Kaleem (they are now married now as well). Kim’s friend Althea decided to invite her boyfriend, along with all of us to come hang out with them and help celebrate Kim’s birthday. So when we arrived Althea introduced both of us, and the rest is history. I like to think I’m the best birthday present she’s ever gotten!
We got engaged at Disneyland at the wishing well next to Sleeping Beauty’s Castle. Kim’s parents helped commandeer a Disney photographer while we were getting coffee on Main Street first thing in the morning. We planned to meet at the castle and when we arrived, the photographer was waiting to “take family photos”. So we took some as a group and then a few as a couple when the photographer asked if anyone wanted to do any “magical photos”. Kim immediately said no because she was in a hurry to get to Space Mountain, but I said yes, got down on one knee, and popped the question.
