This engagement session was shot back in the fall of 2021 at one of my absolute FAVORITE locations. (Shhhh, unless you book, photographers don't share their special locations! haha).

I fell in love with this location because as you can see, it provides SO much dimension to the clients gallery. Some rustic building vibes, field vibes, and of course the sunflowers are just the most magical touch. These two have known each other for over 10 years, and after being good friends for so long, ended up falling in love. Their engagement session was full of laughs and complete silliness. Whenever a couple is nervous or worried about being in front of the camera, I always suggest bringing a bottle of champagne to help loosen things up! Plus, it makes for a great photo op! I am much looking forward to seeing photos of these two tie the knot this coming summer in Newport, Rhode Island. I imagine the photos are going to be INSANE!
