There is no denying – Natalie & Willie are all about Bethlehem, PA!
This has been one of the most popular cities in the Lehigh Valley thanks to the great night life and interesting things to see and do.
Over the years, we have photographed so many sweet engagement sessions and weddings in this city. Last year, we even photographed Nathan Pyle’s (the creator of the Strange Planet comics) wedding at Lehigh University (you can see those photos here), and we’ve done a ton of other photos at spots around the city. And yes – we’ve even shot photos for another couple of die-hard Bethlehem fans at Musikfest (beer mugs in tow!).
What we really enjoyed about getting to photograph this engagement was just how low key they wanted everything to be. As photographers, it can be easy for us to start to overthink things, but it turns out some of our absolute favorite shots from this session came in the moments where we just had them hang out with their Musikfest mugs and talk with one another. We took a step back and with the help of some great compositions and textures from the Steel Stacks, we had amazing shots on our hands.
One of the huge focuses they had when getting in touch with us was how much they loved our candid photos – a huge highlight of our approach to capturing wedding days. We look forward to capturing many great candid moments at their wedding (again – in Bethlehem!) next year when they share a great time with friends & family.
