Dan & Kate

Kinzua Beach

We decided to shoot in a location that has been pivotal in Dan and Kate's lives, and also happens to be the location of their ceremony this upcoming autumn: Kinzua Beach found in the Alleghany National Forest.

The not-so-distant booms of the ice breaking echoed over the lake. Sudden gusts of cold breeze gliding off the ice brushed against our cheeks, forming an aerial juxtaposition as we walked the shoreline in the newly warm spring air. The calls of birds returning north formed a peaceful symphony in the background. Dan and Kate took turns identifying the different calls.

Dan and Kate's engagement session was the first of our 2022 season, and they couldn't have asked for a more uniquely beautiful day. Scroll through the images below, and take delight in the visual balance between summer and winter taking place: the emergence of spring.
