Ricketts Glen Adventurous Engagement Session, Pennsylvania | Jackleen Leed Photography
May 31, 2019 , ADVENTURE SESSION
My very favorite thing about adventurous engagement sessions are the type of couples that choose to do them. Seriously! They are always the most down-to-earth, laid back, and in love people. And you have to be when you’re having your love documented in a wild place! The weather doesn’t always cooperate (in fact, it rarely does!), and there are about a million other things that cannot be controlled.
However, you can control your outlook. After all, an adventure isn’t really an adventure if it all goes as planned, right? If you’re spontaneous, can roll with the punches, and don’t mind having a plan B (or even a plan C) to fall back on, then adventurous engagements and elopements are absolutely the choice for you!
Which brings me to this amazing couple. We met at the trail head for the Falls Trail in Ricketts Glen State Park for their adventurous engagement session. This park boasts 21 waterfalls and gorgeous mossy glens, winding through old growth forests that look like they came straight out of the pages of a fairy tale. The trail also involves steps, lots and lots of steps. The waterfalls range in height from 9 feet to the impressive 94-foot Ganoga Falls. It felt like every time we turned a corner there was another waterfall to see and explore! This was by far the most beautiful state park I have ever set foot in.
And honestly, there would have been no better couple than to explore it all with than these two. They clearly enjoyed being with each other and their happiness was absolutely contagious. And above all else, they are proof that even if you are having a more traditional wedding day, there is always room for adventure!
Looking for an adventure of your own and a photographer who will camp with you, hike with you, get muddy, and document the whole thing? Get in touch! I love to help couples plan adventures that are completely true-to-them and their relationship!
