Renee + Jeff, Ricketts Glen Camping Engagement Session

Renee and Jeff met me on a foggy evening up at Rickett’s Glen for some hiking around the falls followed by a campfire. We ran out of light, so I headed back the next morning for more photos, and it quickly became one of my favorite sessions to date. Our dogs romped around the campground and became BFFs pretty quickly. I woke up to these words from Renee after sending off her gallery and they brought me to tears:

Hey Amanda!

I just wanted to write back to tell you that we are THRILLED with our photos!  This message is a bit mushy and much, but I love this stuff!

I had very high expectations because of the fact that photography is a big hobby of mine. I had specific things I was looking for in a photographer. Found you. Talked to other photographers. And picked you as our photographer hoping you could capture those specific things I was looking for. And you exceeded my expectations!  I love photography in general, and part of is not just looking at photos and being like oh that’s nice, that’s nice, but rather analyzing photos and all the elements within a photo. I have looked through our album many times now analyzing every photo and I’m just in love.  The rawness, the quality, the grit, the way you use depth of field, the way you use lighting, your editing skills and coloring, the DETAIL SHOTSSSS!, and most of all, how beautifully you captured us, our love, our essence, our being.. doing things we love. We are so incredibly happy we chose you, got to know you that weekend, planned that weekend and followed through with it despite some setbacks!  Thanks so so so much for this shoot. It really means a lot to me and we will cherish these FOREVER!  You da best!!!
