What did you do on the last day of summer? We shot the BEST end of summer engagement session at Springton Manor Farm. This was definitely one of my favorite engagements from this summer and I can’t wait for you to experience John and Megan’s love!!
I met John years ago when we attended the same church camp as kids (shout out to Camp Nawakwa!!). We kept in contact via social media and I actually shot another friend’s wedding last year who I met at Camp Nawakwa the same year as John! Then when I went to college I ended up becoming close friends with one of his friends from high school. Needless to say, I was so excited to be able to catch up with John and meet Megan, who is just as great!!
how they met
Megan and John met at Penn State when John was setting up a performance for their glee club in California. Megan is actually from California so it was by chance that when they met at church she could offer expertise for John as he arranged the trip! (Some might call it fate :P). Over spring break they took the trip and performed at Megan’s high school where John proceeded to meet her entire family. It is important to note that they weren’t actually romantically involved until after this trip when not only Megan’s family, but the ENTIRE glee club took notice of their chemistry! That trip definitely catapulted them into reality and they haven’t stopped talking since.
Since Megan lived in California and John in Pennsylvania, they spent summers across the country from each other when she would go home for break. John was scheduled to come and visit but ended up coming out a day early to surprise her! Her sister hid in the bushes of their backyard and only had one specific spot they could stand in for her to get a photo of the proposal. When Megan came outside, she was so surprised to find John! They hugged and ended up out of the “sweet spot” for the proposal photo! John had to almost push her back into that “sweet spot” so that her sister (still hiding in the bushes) could photograph the proposal!! Well he did, and she said yes which brings us to their stunning engagement session :)
their springton manor farm engagement
For anyone who knows me, they know I’m a HUGE fan of fall! This session was honestly the BEST way I could have possibly said goodbye to summer and HELLO to fall! Megan and John are getting married in California, but since such a major part of their love story happened in Pennsylvania, they wanted to make sure to document some of Pennsylvania’s beauty in their engagement session. Springton Manor Farm was an absolutely perfect setting! From Megan’s sangria dress to the line of trees along the road, this engagement was definitely one of my favorites of the summer!
