I’m not sure this session is even real it’s so pretty. I’m obsessed. I finish editing one image and say “oh gosh this one’s my favorite,” move onto the next one and I’m all, “no this one’s my favorite.” This session combines all my loves! Rivers, Trees, soft light, white rocks, tall grass, and one super down for anything couple. That’s a recipe for a favorite fall engagement session.
I just have to insert a thank you here to all my couples. You sweet people trust me to document a SUPER important season of your lives, and I’ll never find the end of my gratitude for that. It is literally my JOY to get to do this, and so many times during Sarah and Wesley’s session I had to seriously pinch myself. I’d put my camera down for a second and just marvel at how absolutely gorgeous our surroundings were. I’m spinning around, drinking in the other-worldly fall scenes around me, and my eyes fall on Sarah and Wesley, who are wonders themselves and who made this session 7000 times more amazing. This brings me back to my thank you: thank you to my couples for being REAL. For letting your hair down, for smiling big, for dancing around, for just going there, for enjoying real moments during your engagement sessions. Sarah and Wesley, thank you! I’m so grateful for you both and how you 110% went there with me. Stunning things happen in photography when people are just themselves, and Sarah and Wesley were themselves during their session, and as I said before… I’m obsessed with their photos. Would it be weird to print them out and put them in my house? Sarah and Wesley, let me know…
My final thoughts on this blog post are basically just different shades of “wow.” Sometimes I honestly struggle when summer fades into fall. I love shooting in spring and summer light and colors, and it can be easy a challenge not to find fall and winter a little lackluster. Well I think God has heard my internal dialogue lately because this session has completely changed my tune. Bring on the big bold fall colors and winter light, because I’m a believer now. Another shade of “wow” has to go out to Sarah and Wesley (again) because they killed it just being them during their shoot and going with me on all my weird prompts and ideas. I’ll never recover from Sarah’s windblown hair and glassy brown eyes. Wowowowoowoowowow. I get to do this.
Sarah and Wesley, cheers to you. And fall and rocks and rivers and trees and wind and happy times. Y’all are my people!!
