Engagement Photography

New River Gorge Engagement Photography by Chad Foreman. This once-in-a-lifetime event was captured for Kendall and Haley.

Kendall called me on the phone. He and his soon-t0-be fiance were in West Virginia to work on the pipeline. They are from Arkansas. Kendall was preparing to propose to Haley and he wanted to capture the event with pictures.

We worked together for about 2 weeks to plan the occasion. The biggest hurdle we had to deal with was the weather. That day it was raining all morning long. Both he and Haley had the day off from work. We really had to try. Right around 2pm, the weather broke. It was on! It turned out to be a beautiful afternoon and evening for a photo shoot.

The proposal 

Here we have the actual proposal. Kendall and Haley walked by me and I pretended to be a tourist taking photos of the New River Gorge. Haley had no idea. It’s a good thing I was ready. Kendall wasted no time with the proposal. He got down on one knee immediately and BOOM!

A few minutes to themselves.

The two of them spent a few minutes enjoying the moment. I continued to click away.

We took advantage of the nice light to do some posed portraits.

As the sun began to set, we had some beautiful clouds and colors for some dramatic portraits with the New River Gorge Bridge in the background.

The only product I am currently offering are prints on PVC. You may not have heard of prints on PVC because they are new, but they are BEAUTIFUL! They have all the detail of a paper print without the glare of glass or additional cost of framing. They arrive ready to hang with a mount that puts the image 3/4” from the wall for a modern “floating” look. The finish is a metallic luster that I feel compliments my style.

Why not canvas? Personally, I do not like the texture that comes with a canvas print. I don't feel that they are as detailed as a PVC print and I have been unhappy with the overall printing of canvas prints that I've ordered in the past. To be fair, I have seen canvas prints that look good but I don't know where they were printed and until I find one I'm happy with, I don't want to offer them. Furthermore, canvas prints are much more expensive.

That said, if you'd still prefer a canvas or a paper print, please use the form to the right to message me and I can put together something custom for you.
