Historic Mill Engagement – Caitlin & Jared

post by matt

We met Caitlin & Jared about 40 minutes north of Harrisburg at a mill built in the 1700’s. It’s on a beautiful private property and we were just so lucky to have access to the mill because there is a bit of family history there. Jared’s great-grandfather operated the mill for the owners back in 1930’s. His grandfather grew up at the mill and met his grandmother who lived on a neighboring farm. That’s love story number one for the day, now on to Caitlin & Jared’s…..

We started their session in the mill. The owners were kind enough to open it up for us & we’re so grateful they did. It made for stunning pictures!

I really like this one, there they are in a doorway surrounded by stone.

The mill is in great shape and looks fabulous on a beautiful day with blue sky.

Some of the history, and just a note the owners now are restoring the inside as well.

We then joined Caitlin & Jared inside for some more photos.

I adore this next set of pics, they are super cute with each other :)

Jared’s gorgeous wife to be.

They brought four different outfits for their session, so I wanted to highlight them all (and say thanks to Abby for her style consulting ;)

They brought along a few mini pumpkins and gourds, so we had fun with those and the ring.

Stunning detail in her ring!

Taking advantage of the great property & what was left of the fall color.

There is also a covered bridge that Caitlin & Jared wanted to capture in their session.

They are a good looking couple don’t you think?

Love those laughing moments.

One more of her gorgeous ring (good job Jared!)

Time for some country.

Lovin the boots.

Some details.

Kiss on the cheek.

And then we went out to the dock, just as the sun was turning golden.


They are very sweet together.

The bare trees were perfect for a couple of silhouettes!

Him + Her.

Caitlin also brought along this blanket, which was perfect for some cozy fall pics.

Here’s the full version of the sneak peek pic.

One more outfit, that I personally loved because of the bright colors!

His beautiful girl.

Smiles, kisses & leaves.

Congratulations Caitlin & Jared. We’re so glad we could capture your engagement in such a special place, and we’re excited for your wedding next year!!
