Fonthill Castle Engagement Photos

FONTHILL CASTLE ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS

Deven and Kenny call Doylestown home. It’s full of memories for them, including how they met and where they’ll be getting married. I was so excited when Deven told me they wanted Fonthill Castle engagement photos, specifically for the beautiful, tree lined drive. And the best part? Kenny brought his uncle’s classic Corvette! I’m a sucker for classic cars, so I knew this was going to be an extra special session.

THE PROPOSAL

Deven and Kenny went to high school together, so they’ve always sort of “known” each other. It wasn’t until a drunken NYE kiss in 2013 that they started dating, and the rest is history. Deven describes their proposal story in the most beautiful way:

We went for a “run” at Tyler State Park on NYE after spending the morning deep cleaning our house #newyearnewus – I was under the impression we had no plans so we were getting off to a healthy start. One of our favorite things to do together is go for a run outside that usually turns into a walk & talk. It was getting dark and was a little rainy so the park had a little but of an eerie feel but Kenny would not turn back… I obviously now know why. As we crossed the covered bridge, Kenny started fumbling his words and tried multiple times to remember the “roses are red, violets are blue” poem he had written in his phone (this is something we do in cards, texts, etc. – he is way more creative than me). Eventually he gave up on the poem and dropped to one knee. A man dressed in full camo came out of the woods at that exact moment who we managed to ask for a blurry photo that we cherish.
Kenny had planned a dinner with both of our families after. It was so special to be able to celebrate with our immediate families all sitting at the same table.

MY HEART. Kenny’s thoughtful proposal is one of my favorites to this day. I live for these sentimental moments in relationships!

We had so much fun creating their Fonthill Castle engagement photos. I didn’t think we were going to get any sun, but it popped out for a few photos and made my heart sing. Their wedding is going to be an absolute blast and I can’t wait!

Rebecca somehow made us both relaxed and produced absolute magic! She instructed us while still making the photos look candid, reliably captured our "good sides," and brought her unique eye for lighting and settings (pro tip: do whatever she says even if it seems funny or in a different location; it will look utterly amazing). Photos can be an investment and I'm glad we did the research and found the perfect photographer for us.

"The best (esp if you're awkward in photos)"

- Lauren + Hunter

I can't even put into words how amazing Rebecca is. We knew from the moment our engagement photos began that we made the right choice. She is so professional, charismatic, and excited to be a part of your big day.  I would recommend her over and over again!

"Speechless."

Rebecca was such a joy to work with, our experience with her was absolute perfection from beginning to end! Even from our first conversation, I could tell that she genuinely cares about getting to know her clients and what they prioritize and want to capture on the big day. She was always so responsive and available by phone or email, communication was a total breeze. Rebecca is not only incredibly talented, but a wonderful human being, and we loved working with her. I wholeheartedly recommend her to all future brides!

"Rebecca was a dream!"

It was truly a pleasure working with Rebecca. She is so sweet and easy to work with, we felt so relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire process. Communication is timely, prices are reasonable. She listened to us and did such a perfect job capturing every moment on our special day. And most importantly - the pictures turned out ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!! I can't recommend her enough.

"Love love love Rebecca!"
