Rebecca and I met briefly at a wedding show I attended as a vendor. I was holding a free engagement session give-away and she entered her name! I ended up choosing a couple different couples (about 3!) because  of the overwhelming response I got from the contest! I had over 70+ brides enter that day! 

When Rebecca and I emailed back and forth to set up the session, the decided that Valley Forge would fit their personalities best! I spoke with them on the day of their session and heard their beautiful love story. Their dedication and passion for each other touched my heart!  I asked Rebecca to write something up for me to help tell their story and the following quote is from her!

Our story is a long one that started about 11 years ago. We started dating in high school and stayed together through college, despite going to different universities. After college we moved in together in Philadelphia and took our time getting started down the marriage path. After dating for almost 10 years we finally got engaged in 2014, on Rebecca’s birthday. We will be getting married later this year! We had no intention of getting engagement photos taken but on a whim, Rebecca entered a drawing for a free session provided by Bragg About It Photography. We won! We were looking forward to our photo session to celebrate and commemorate our engagement and upcoming wedding. Leading up to the photos we were unsure of what to expect and how enjoyable the experience would be for the both of us. We did know one thing; living in different parts of Pennsylvania for the last few years we wanted our pictures to be taken with the backdrop of where our relationship grew into what it is today, in an area that we have enjoyed living and spending time enjoying each other’s company. With this in mind we chose to have the pictures taken at Valley Forge Park because it gave us the opportunity to immerse ourselves in nature and history, which are both things that we have enjoyed together over the years. The shoot was very enjoyable and Jessica was very helpful in making us feel comfortable. She had great suggestions for photos, but most of all made it feel easy to laugh and talk creating beautiful in-the-moment shots. She was very accommodating to our requests for specific poses or backgrounds. The photos are amazing! As her name implies, we will definitely Bragg About It. We will cherish the photos until death do us part.
