Perfect timing! The engagement and the season, too. The fall leaves and autumn sun were at their best this weekend, offering the kind of backlit glow that photographers love, and romantic couples–well, they don’t necessarily notice the lighting. That’s my job. The location for this photo session, on the hilltop campus of Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania, is one of my favorites for so many reasons. Notice the century-old Japanese cutleaf maple surrounding the couple with those amazing branches? Naturally, it’s a great backdrop, but it’s also a reminder that some things become even more beautiful when they endure. I’m really looking forward to photographing this very sweet couple once again at their wedding at the Hotel Bethlehem next summer.
