Fall Mellon Park Engagement Session in Pittsburgh | Harper + Connor

We met up with Harper and Connor this past weekend in Pittsburgh for their late fall engagement session at Mellon Park and the campus of the University of Pittsburgh.  It was a beautiful but super chilly day and these two were such good sports about the frigid temps! We have been so excited to meet these two in person. They are just the sweetest couple and they were such naturals in front of the camera! It was so easy to capture the love and genuine attraction these two have for each other! Their joy was contiguous and we had such a good time with them and getting to know them better!

Harper and Connor met while studying at Franciscan University of Steubenville. They were introduced through a mutual friend and they saw each other in passing over the course of the semester. They then studied abroad in Gaming, Austria during the same semester and this idyllic setting is where their relationship really took off.  They began to spend more time together that led to Connor officially asking Harper on a date! Their first date was a hike to a beautiful waterfall near Gaming.

The waterfall theme played into their proposal as well! Connor took Harper on a date when visiting her this past May.  They were walking on some trails that led to a waterfall.  Harper had no idea what was planned and she was commenting on just how pretty the location was…..then she turned around and Connor was on one knee!! She was SO surprised! She said yes and they celebrated with a picnic by the pond complete with champagne!

We cannot wait for their wedding next summer in Milwaukee! They are getting married at the Basilica of St. Josaphat, which is probably one of the most stunning churches I have EVER seen! It’s going to be epic!

Harper and Connor, thanks so much for braving the freezing cold and trusting us with capturing your story! We can’t wait to see you next summer for your big day! It is going to be beautiful  (and so much warmer!!)
