"You are my today and all of my tomorrows." - Leo Christopher
I genuinely can't even begin to say enough great things about Tim and Nina. To say the start to their engagement session was a hot mess is a bit of an understatement. I've never seen it torrential downpour quite like it downpoured during the drive to their engagement session. On the Pennsylvania turnpike, cars were crawling along at 35 in a 70 or stopped completely. The weather was wild, but seeing as Tim and Nina's wedding is in July, we were determined to press on. When we got to our planned location for their engagement session, we were informed by several people that it would be $350 to take photos on location and that we would only have an hour for their session. This was a location we had shot at before, so these restrictions were newly implemented, and ones we were not aware of. After a quick huddle with Tim and Nina, we decided to switch locations and head to Valley Forge. Tim and Nina spend quite a bit of their time at Valley Forge going for walks, so it was the perfect spot. We had such an amazing time working with these two incredible souls. After their session, we talked in the parking lot for at least 30 minutes about everything and anything. Tim and Nina are the sweetest, and we cannot wait for their big day in July.
Tim woke up on one dreary Monday morning and decided that he didn't want to wait any longer... that was going to be the day he asked Nina to be his wife. Now the struggle was, planning with Nina's family was going to prove to be a bit difficult. Tim had to spring the proposal on Nina as her family is extremely close, and if they knew more than 4 hours in advance that there was going to be a proposal, someone was going to spill the beans to Nina. He asked her parents for their blessing that day and of course they said yes. When Nina got home from work, she found two notes that Tim had left her inside a basket filled with pinecones and dried leaves. The letters had the edges carefully burned to really give it that rustic look. In the second letter, Tim asked "Will you Marry Me?" Nina couldn't believe it, and after a barrage of questions, and answering with "I'm dripping sweat", eventually she said yes as their dog Hank humped Tim's leg from excitement. Enjoy their Valley Forge engagement session!
