Engagement | PJ & Kasey

“He’s more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.”  -Emily Bronte

I met up with PJ and Kasey at the Manhattan Round Barn on a relatively hot day. It was one of those days where you only really had to step outside to start sweating. They were troopers though. First off, they looked amazing. They took great direction, and they were laid back and easy to work with. What more could I ask for?!

Prior to scheduling, Kasey had mentioned to me that late afternoon was her favorite time of day, when the sun is just starting to set. Naturally, we set are session time for 7pm so we could capture that beautiful golden light! I love it too! 

From the barn, itself, to the expansive green grass to the gazebo, the Round Barn location has so much to offer. It was a great spot for a rustic and nature-loving feel.

PJ proposed to Kasey last year, and they are planning an October 2017 wedding. I am very much looking forward to it!


Engagement sessions are so special. The couple has the chance to interact with a photographer prior to their wedding day, and often times, it is the couple’s first time working with a photographer. It is also a great opportunity to increase the variety in their wedding portfolio by having the session at a different location than their wedding.
