Heidi Roland Photography skillfully captured every endearing moment that this couple shared during their farm engagement shoot.  Hellerick’s Family Farm was the perfect backdrop for this fall session, complete with acres of beautiful foliage, pumpkins, and haystacks.  Shawn and Nicole attended the same middle school but didn’t get to know each other until later in life when they met on Facebook.  They’ve been inseparable since and their story and photographs below tell it all!

How They Met:
“Shawn and I first met on Facebook. However, we were both in sixth grade together at Belvidere School District in NJ, but we never talked to each other in school. However, I did have a crush on him back then, but he never knew it. The weirdest thing now is that when we look back at our middle school yearbook, our pictures are right next to each other! We connected through Facebook in October of 2013, we started hanging out and then started dating officially on November 7 of 2013.”

Nicole: “I love everything about Shawn..it’s hard to sum it all up, but he is my best friend and my rock. He is always patient and listens to me. and definitely does not sugar coat anything for me. He tells me how it is when I need to hear it, and supports me through all my problems and encourages me in all my dreams. Shawn makes me want to be a better person every day and has taught me so much about life and its lessons. I love his sense of humor and the fact that he can goof around with me all the time, but most of all I love his beard! :)”

Shawn: “I love everything about Nicole… when we first got together we sat down and had serious conversations about what we wanted in the future. She said she wanted to help children in many different ways and that meant a lot to me because I had a rough childhood. Also because she has a good head on her shoulders. I look up to her in many ways she’s smart, very funny and makes me a very happy man. I’m lucky to have such a special women in my life that loves me and wants the best for me and others around her.”

The Proposal:
“Shawn proposed to me on December 16, 2016. We took a mini vacation together at Split Rock Resort in Mount Pocono. We had many wonderful winter activities planned such as sledding, and ice skating, but found out that it wasn’t cold enough and the excursions weren’t open. It seemed like our little vacation was going down the drain fast. But we were optimists and made the most of our trip. During one of the nights we spent there, we went out to dinner then came back to our cottage. We were drinking wine by the fireplace, and Shawn asked if I loved him. I said yes, and right then and there he asked me if I would marry him. It was so romantic!”

“Shawn and I originally wanted to get married in the fall, but my brother and his current wife already had “dibs” on it, so we figured our next best thing would be to have fall engagement photos. We got so many fall engagement photo ideas from Pinterest and decided that’s what we wanted to do for pictures.”

“Our engagement photographer was fantastic! She really did an amazing job with our engagement photos and helped us be comfortable in front of the camera. She did an incredible job with capturing us in a natural way which was exactly what we were looking for. Any issues we had, she was quick to fix and was very helpful and informative with helping us to understand the process. We would highly recommend her to anyone seeking an engagement photographer!”
