So, I have been a little behind on blogging, but what better way to catch up than to start sharing! I will start with this AMAZING couple, Laura & Justin. They wanted to do their engagement session at Winterthur! I had never been there before but after seeing this place I think I could do all of my sessions there! As we wondered around the beautiful property, and Justin shared his knowledge of the estate (he’s quite the history buff!), I began to fall in love with this place. It seriously felt like something you would read about in a book, or see in a movie. As I walked around I got sucked into the beauty of all the gardens, ponds, & rolling hills. It really is magical! I am soo glad that they chose this place!
So a little back history on this estate, Henry A. Du Pont & his son built this place back in the early 20th century. The home was added to over the years, then it was turned into a public museum. The home has 175 rooms, and over 1,000 acres containing MANY gardens, ponds & rolling hills. This the place to see in Delaware! It is quite the location for a photo session! Needless to say, I think we only covered a small portion of this place.
Laura & Justin are the sweetest couple and I can’t wait to photograph their BIG DAY! Until then enjoy this magical session!
