Becca & AJ’s Tree Farm Engagement Session | Hannah Barlow Photography | WV Wedding Photography

Meet Becca and AJ!  Holy WOW!  I loved EVERYTHING about this session!  You’ve got Christmas trees, red and green, cool weather and this BEAUTIFUL couple!  Seriously, just wait until you see this session!  These are seriously just a FEW of my favorites! This gallery was HUGE!


I actually have known AJ for a really long time!  I was good friends with his sister growing up (Hi, Ree!) and he was that little brother who made us run around and scream! HA!  I actually haven’t seen him in years and years so it was nice to run into him again.  Becca was the first bride to hire me for the 2018 year and she’s been so easy to get along with from the get go!  She’s also BEAUTIFUL and is a dream to photograph!  Look at these two!

Again, just look at these two! So in love!  These photos were taken in Wellsburg, WV at the PikeVue Christmas Tree Farm!  They were kind enough to allow us to photograph this couple’s session there!  Ironically, AJ and Becca had been there earlier in the day to get their own tree! A HUGE thank to you all my uncles, aunt, cousin, etc. for keeping us company and allowing us to make this magical session possible!

There was walking…and snuggling…and these are now my most favorite walk-snuggle-walk photos to date! AHHHHH!!! I can’t stand it!

…and we also got some really really really pretty light! Lucky us!! YAY!

Gosh.  I really cant pick my favorite!  These colors just pop right off those green trees and the light is pretty and the sky is pretty and the couple is easy on the eyes!  What more can I ask for?!

Her smile and giggles blow me away!  Did I ever mention I love red lipstick?!  I really should wear it more often!  I’m picturing a photo shoot in my future!

Then, we moved to the other side of the farm to do some more simple snuggling by the trees.  Becca told me right off the bat she wanted a whole gallery full of candids and none of those photos I call the “grandma poses”…you know, the ones where you “smile and say cheese” becuase grandma is going to see your 21st century gallery and say “WHY ARE YOU NOT LOOKING AT THE CAMERA IN THESE?!” HA!

There was also dancing in the trees, of course!

…and some carrying!  Lots of laughter too! HA!

Check out her gorgeous ring!

Red nails.  Red lips.  Red shirt.  Red accessories. Gosh, I love all this!

Funny (AJ probably doesn’t think it is funny) story about that ring shot.  You know how I don’t usually take rings outside?  And recently I’ve been breaking the rules? Welllllll, I totally dropped her ring…ON THE WOOD PILE! Lordy.  So, I put it on the ground and took that picture before AJ  was tempted to reach over and take possession of it again! HA!  Becca and I had a good laugh though!

Then, I suggested she sit on this neat wood pile.  But it was a bit too high for AJ to do what I needed him to do so I told him to stand and let his leg hang real “manly like”.  We were all laughing…especially when he said “Is this good enough for you, Hannah”? Bahahahaha!

I LOVE this ornament!

…and because I’m NEVER really done…I made them stop and strike this pose in the parking lot on their way back to AJ’s truck once we were finished!! I love it!!!! <3 So simple!

I hope you all enjoyed this session!  These two will have their wedding and reception in Dennison, Ohio at The Barn on Enchanted Acres!  I’m lucky enough to be photographing it! EEEKKKKK!  Check back in a little less than a year to see these two tie the knot! Gosh, I can’t wait to see what they have in store for their big day!


Hair/Makeup – Legal Hair and Day Spa

Just a friendly reminder:  Although PikeVue nursery is owned by family of mine, AJ did call and ask for permission to take photos at their place of business.  For liability reasons, no one is permitted to photograph clients without prior approval and proof of liability insurance.  While I don’t believe PikeVue has had any issues, I’ve seen some recent posts this year regarding photographers trespassing and I don’t want those stories to hit close to home!  Be kind and courteous, everyone!  <3
