I had met Natasha and Lane while shooting a wedding earlier in the season–they were on the dance floor the whole time! They were certainly a fun couple, with Natasha’s brilliant smile and Lane’s contagious sense of humor, they were easy to talk to! I was so excited when Natasha contacted me to do Engagement photos of her and Lane–they were such a cute couple, I knew it would be a good time. We went to the Succop Conservancy, where there is such a variety of beautiful places for back drops.
We started the session by doing some photos in front of the house–the wrought iron lattice work is so pretty!
I also love the back courtyard, it’s like a step back in time, and also offers the ability for some sitting poses with the brick half-wall.
These two small buildings caught Natasha’s eye, so we used them for some poses. She has a good eye–these turned out so romantic, and the colors are gorgeous! Painted brick is so timeless and looks awesome.
The barn was a wonderful backdrop, and the tree behind it looked like it was on fire! Perfect for a fall shoot!
Aren’t they adorable?!?!?! 😀
We used the arbor because, haha, they got the memo that Natasha was wearing burgundy and decorated it accordingly! 😉 Of course that’s not the truth but it worked out so well for Natasha and Lane’s shoot!
Natasha has sparkling blue eyes that are just striking! They made a statement in every photo. Just gorgeous!
This huge weeping willow made a very romantic backdrop. I loved shooting through the leafy vines to frame them. They are so in the moment with each other, it was fun to watch them joke around with each other while I shot.
Love this one in black and white!
One of my favorite things to do–shoot into the sun! It blurs everything, making the light bounce everywhere and gives the photo a soft glow and a romantic feeling. No photoshop was used in these photos. It was all done in camera with a prime lens, the sun, and a beautiful couple!
I love this one because you can look at her eyes and see how much she adores him!
And now…for Miss Lola!!! She was so tiny and cute!
Can you spot Lola? 😉
Love the bench with the birch trees by the ponds. Just so pretty!
And we caught a beautiful sunset! What a lovely backdrop for these cuties!
Lola even laid her head down 🙂 Too cute!
Loved doing this one for Natasha–her family sells lights like this! It’s their family business, so Natasha’s involved in knowledge about lights like this too. It’s always nice to see something that you identify with and that’s a part of your life. It’s fun to incorporate something very personal into your Engagement shoot, it’s all about you, after all! It will be nice to give this to Natasha’s parents so that they can have it in their office–their daughter, her new husband, and the family business! Oh, and Lola 😉
Natasha and Lane, it was wonderful to spend the evening with you two! Thank you for letting me capture these special moments for you! You are such great people and are meant for each other, it warms my heart–I can’t wait for the wedding! 🙂
