Michael + Maya // A Hershey Gardens Engagement

June 27, 2023

"I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making me. I love you for the part of me that you bring out." - Elizabeth Barrett Browning

We had a blast hanging out with Maya and Michael at Hershey Gardens for their engagement photos! Living in the area, Maya and Michael frequently go for walks at Hershey Gardens. Even from their initial meeting with us, they knew that they wanted to have their engagement photos done at the gardens. Maya and Michael knew of all of the best spots, and we just had the best time with these two sweet souls. They were up for anything, and their laid-back spirits shine through in their photos! We can't wait to capture their big day! 

Michael proposed on Maya on a weekend getaway trip to Omni Bedford Springs resort. The first day of their trip, the weather was unseasonably warm for December so they decided to go for a hike. Maya had a hunch that he was going to propose on the hike, but after they got lost and were struggling to find their way back to the resort, Maya was glad he didn't choose that day to propose. The next day was bitter cold, and after dinner, Michael took her out to a gazebo with Christmas lights to get some photos. Michael set up a tripod to get a photo, but in reality, he was capturing the proposal. He asked Maya to marry him and she said yes! Enjoy their beautiful, Hershey Gardens engagement session!
