Danielle + Matt || Valley Forge National Park Engagement || Modern Philadelphia Wedding Photographer

I've said it before, and I'm sure I'll say it again- I LOVE my couples.  There's something so special about being invited along on one of the greatest journeys life has to offer, and when you just "click" with the ones starring in the story you're helping to tell, well...that's just about as good as it gets.

A few weeks back, I had the pleasure of spending an evening with Danielle and Matt exploring one of my favorite stomping grounds- Valley Forge National Park.  I expected a night of fun, giggles and getting to know each other better (and those things were most certainly in abundance)- what I did NOT expect was to be greeted with the sweetest gift for Baby J and a whole lemon pie just for me (okay FINE, and David).  Now, it must be said that this girl can BAKE.  And not just like the I-like-to-bake-and-make-cookies kind of bake, the I-thrive-at-making-pies-cakes-cookies...you-bake-it-I-make-it kind of bake.  And she does it so well.  I have no shame in confessing that a slice was eaten that night, for breakfast the next morning, for a mid day snack....yeahhhh.  We DID share a few pieces with my husband's grandmother though, so we didn't feel as bad when the whole thing disappeared in 3 days.  

D + M:  My love for you runs deep.  And not just because you bake me pies that make me wanna slap my mama.  But because your hearts are the size of Texas, your love for each other is respectful, intoxicating and pure, your smiles shine so much brighter than the sun, and it's just a joy to be around you.  Thanks for letting me in to take a peek at the magic.  December, here we come!
