I love a lot of things that came into play while exploring the nearby city of Wilkes-Barre PA last week with Heather and John — obvious affection, lots of laughter and an adorable puppy.
I have had a blast with this young, fun couple since we first talked about their Sept. 2015 wedding a couple of months ago. John asked great questions during a phone interview and apparently was impressed by me! He told Heather, “We don’t have to look any further, I found our photographer.” How awesome is that?! And then when I met with Heather at a nearby coffee place, we happened to pick a night with a slew of fire trucks on display, free ice cream and long lines weaving around costumed walking coffee cups. We laughed a lot and just really hit it off.
So this past weekend, we captured some love and laughter at three locations — a riverside park along the Susquehanna, the campus of Wilkes University and then at nearby Kirby Park and it’s dyke path.
Heather and John had a lot of ideas for outfits and props and posing but were equally flexible and open-minded with my suggestions.
Heather’s ring is gorgeous, yet it was almost overshadowed by their new puppy named .. wait for it… Captain Bacon! (And he even has his own hashtag!)
I hope you can feel the fun in these photos! I can’t wait to see them surrounded by their loved ones in just a few months for their wedding. I have no doubt I’ll be smiling the entire time!
