J.A. Skinner State Park, Hadley, Massachusetts | Ben & Trina Engagement Session | October 3, 2015
This past weekend was chilly...But not for these two love birds...On a crisp fall day on top of a gorgeous mountain in Hadley, Massachusetts I met Ben, Trina and their pup Jolene for their engagement session. When I found out that they wanted to have their engagement photos taken at Mt. Skinner I was ecstatic. The views of the Pioneer Valley from the summit of Mt. Skinner are absolutely breathtaking.
The moment they stepped out of the car I knew that it was going to be an amazing session. Trina's gorgeous hair and Ben's dapper style just made me giddy with joy. They were ready to tackle the cold and wind from Hurricane Joaquin's looming approach up the East Coast. And Boy did they. I have never laughed so much during an engagement session. I had to recompose myself several times to just keep my camera from shaking. I LOVE when my couples enjoy their photo shoot as much as I do. I usually ask of my couples to incorporate a prop or something they enjoy doing together to give their session a more emotional and intimate feel. Ben and Trina brought some bubbly (Love It!), a homemade quilt and so much LOVE that I honestly had a difficult time picking out the photos for this blog.
From the selfies with my camera they took...yeah Ben you were supposed to just hold it for me, to the amazing dance moves and dips, to the glass of bubbly they shared with me at the end of the session (Yes they brought me a glass!)
AHHHHHH....I am deeply grateful and humbled to be a part of your wedding day next year Ben and Trina!! You both warm so much of my heart and soul!!
