Montour Trail Engagements | Tara + Joe
Joe proposed to Tara along The Montour Trail in the South Hills, and it was only fitting that they made their return for their engagement session. Tara and Joe over the course of their relationship had spent many afternoons biking along the trail, and in a sense, there was a bit of special nostalgia shared between the two of them at this spot. I had never been on the trail before so it was nice to venture to a new destination in hopes of seeing what creative shot possibilities were out there. Upon googling the trail, It was also cool to learn that the overall trail is a 204-mile gravel biking and walking path between Pittsburgh and Cumberland, Maryland, and upon full completion will be a 400-mile trail system between Pittsburgh and Washington, D.C (a.k.a. The Great Allegheny Passage).
Between the amazing scene Fall views along the trail, perfect lighting and the chemistry between these two, my afternoon with them could not have gone any better. I have no doubt that photographing Joe & Tara on their wedding day will be just as enjoyable. I’m looking forward to picking back up with these two at the Mayernik Center in 2017!
