Rachael & Richard | Beltzville Beach Engagement

Rachael & Richard wanted a moody, vintage vibe for their couples session. After a rainy day, the cast of the mountains and fog coming off the water at Beltzville Sate Park beach provided the perfect combination for them -not to mention the beautiful glow of the setting sun! So, golden hour was nothing short of epic.


Rachael & Richard were officially engaged on March 10, 2018 and have been together for three years. They'll be tying the knot this Fall in Kutztown, PA. I'm so excited to capture their love this coming September! 

 How they met?

"We met on tinder about 4 years ago. He decided I was going to be his “tour guide” of the Lehigh valley as he was new to the area. We went on our first date which started with dinner and then ended around 1 am after an attempt for ice cream then ending up sitting at a bar talking for hours. He walked me to my car we had our first kiss the same night as we had an instant connection and from there is was history."

- Rachael

The Perfect Proposal!

"On our second date we went to Tapas on Main Street in Bethlehem. This became a designated spot for us to go out and enjoy each other’s company. We always talked of being married and getting engaged. On March 10, 2018 we went for an early birthday dinner for him, to Tapas, and to celebrate the soon arrival of our daughter. We ate dinner and were asked if we wanted dessert, I said no, but he insisted on chocolate cake. The cake came out with “ I love you” written on the top, and the ring placed gently on top. He was down on one knee and I immediately said “YES” before words even came out of his mouth! LOL! Then, I ate the cake before we could get a photo!" - Rachael

The Best (or Worst) date ever!

"Our best/worst date was when we went up to the Poconos for a romantic weekend. I was dealing with some health concerns, and honestly, exhausted. What I’m sure he thought would be a romantic, fun time with wine and bubbles, turned into a nice, long, deep sleep with me cuddled on his chest. What was probably his worst date, was my best. I remember being so tired and him just rubbing my head and allowing me to sleep. It was sweet!" - Rachael
