Hannah & Tim’s Engagement Session, Fat Bat Brewing Co., Hanover, PA

March 22, 2024

Hannah & Tim’s Engagement Session,

Fat Bat Brewing Co., Hanover, PA

 

THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION

I had such an amazing time at this Engagement Session!  Hannah & Tim are so incredibly personable and it was more like hanging out with friends than anything!  We shared stories about our children and our lives while I was capturing breathtaking images of their undeniable love for one another.  Fat Bat Brewing Co. in Hanover, PA allowed us to do this session outside AND inside their establishment!  My husband and I will definitely be going back here when I’m not “working” to enjoy their variety of craft beers!

Fat Bat Brewing was conceived by a beer loving and artistic sister and brother team. Their goal was to create the ultimate locals’ brewery and brew great local beer in Hanover, PA where they’ve had roots in for over 30 years.  Fat Bat Brewing was named after the head brewer’s beloved pug. When Kevin was first starting to brew at home, his pug would lie upside down and watch Kevin work – looking like a “Fat Bat”! The mascot dons a custom outfit and persona on each Fat Bat label and can be found around the bar.

Hannah & Tim are still trying to finalize their venue, but plan to get married in January 2025.  Shay Scala Photography can’t wait to continue capturing their love story!

Check out their love story:

HOW YOU MET?

Rec council, cheer and football at 5/6 years old

HOW YOU FELL IN LOVE?

Covid allowed us to really get to know each other more than friends and understand how to one ourselves and one another together. It also helped being on lockdown for our first year together lol

HOW DID YOU PROPOSE?

Tim had bought the ring in 2022 and wanted to propose so many different times/ways. However each time the vibes were off or it just didn’t work out and on December 16th 2023 after we had gotten back from taking the kids to see a light show we put on all the Christmas trees and our favorite movie (totally normal to me). He went and made us pop corn and hot chocolate… as he was putting the popcorn and hot chocolate down on the table and so slyly got down on one knee and pulled the ring out from the couch, yes the couch…and asked!! He said he had the ring on him all night and the box was the same color as the couch and he knew he didn’t want to wait any longer so he hid the box in the couch so he could ask me. It was amazing because I don’t want a grand gesture or a million people to watch. It was intimate and perfect. He also custom made the ring!!!

WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED ABOUT WITH PLANNING YOUR WEDDING?

Having a dress I actually love (first dress was bought by family before I could find “the one”) and honestly just being with our family. If you get to know us, you’ll know we are homebodies and just love playing good music with a good beverage and our family and friend and it’s always amazing.

YOUR LOVE STORY IS MADE INTO A MOVIE – WHAT WOULD YOU TITLE IT?

We love every second of this chaos

DESCRIBE YOUR RELATIONSHIP IN 5 WORDS.

LOVE, powerful, happy, silly, beautiful

SOMETHING THAT MEANS THE MOST TO YOU.

Family. I say this with many meanings. I have family that aren’t family and friends that are family. They mean the world. I also lost my mom when I was 18 and she just loved her family and taught me what family means. I could have $-.000 to my name but having my family makes me so rich.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOUR FIANCE?

Tims answer- “your sense of humor, it’s dark but I like it, you reference movies all the time, you love your food and beer like me, we have so many of the same interests” Hannah’s answer- “I love the way I could be absolutely silly and you still love me, I know I’m the “weird girl” and you’re still here for it. You take so much pride in your work and I love that you work so hard that it allows me to stay home and we can live comfortable. You love your kids, yes, but the way you love mine is unimaginable. You show them what true love is aside from myself (their mother)… I could go on”

HAVE YOU GROWN AS A COUPLE SINCE YOU STARTED DATING?

Absolutely. I’m “friends” with his psycho ex wife just to keep the peace when usually I would pretend she doesn’t exist. Lol. But yes, our communication is amazing and it makes us love one another so much.

FAVORITE “QUIRK” ABOUT EACH OTHER?

He sticks his tongue out when he’s thinking really hard lol She falls asleep on demand

IF YOU COULD SPEND 24 HOURS WITH YOUR FIANCE, WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

Ride the Harley to amazing breweries with good food

WHEN DO YOU FEEL MOST LOVED BY YOUR FIANCE?

When we can just chill and be relaxed “both answered”
