Isaac + Jeanie | Family Farm Engagement Session

Posted in: Uncategorized

The fall colors are finally here and I couldn’t be more excited. When I start booking up for fall, everyone always says that they want the fall colors and that means October to them. Honestly, it’s different every year. Last year with the drought, everything was super dry and we only had about a week of good color and then the leaves all fell. The year before, it was beautiful for a while. This year, it’s taken a bit longer for the leaves the change so it looks like we’ll head in to November with beautiful foliage. It’s always hard to judge when it’s going to be pretty out this time of year. 

Isaac and Jeanie lucked out and they had a beautiful session out at the family farm. The lane going to the location of their future home was something out of a movie. There were trees that lined the gravel road and they were leaning inwards making an arch. Then I saw the lake and immediately got excited and ideas started flowing through my head. Isaac told me he proposed to Jeanie on the dock so we definitely had to go there for pics. He also had plans for us in the woods. He knew that light would be limited towards the end of the session (sunset) so he suggested we go to the woods first and I agreed. It was so nice seeing a groom-to-be get excited for pictures and actually help plan the session. The last few pictures involved an old tractor that was restored and it was so awesome. Now, I’m not much of a country girl but this tractor was pretty cool. Jeanie and I hopped on the back of it while Isaac drove us over to the lake. Again, Isaac had a vision of how he wanted that shot and it was beautiful. I told him he needs to be my assistant at weddings since he has such a great eye!
Fall is my favorite time of year. It’s time to finally get out the fuzzy socks, stock up on hot cocoa, put the flannel sheets on the bed and make room on the DVR for holiday Hallmark movies. Go make yourself a cup of hot cocoa and enjoy looking through my favorites from Isaac and Jeanie’s engagement session.
Happy Friday!

This is the exact spot that Isaac proposed!

LOVE this ring shot!
