Lately the weather has been amazing, which is a bit odd for August. It’s been in the upper 70s and low 80s and the evenings are making me long for those autumn nights sitting around a bonfire. I’m not complaining because my August sessions and weddings have been wonderful. Last weekend I met up with Lucas and Valerie and it was one of the best August days we’ve had. Yes, you’ll notice cloudy skies and most people would call that unpleasant LOL, but I love it for so many reasons. We were able to walk around Red Bud and Lucas’ family property and take pictures anywhere we wanted because the sun wasn’t an issue.
Lucas is a lawyer in Red Bud and we met in town across from his office to take pictures at city hall. After a few shots downtown we made our way to Lucas’ parents home. They live in the country and when we pulled up, right away I saw these beautiful pine trees, barns and sheds. Lucas had ideas on the areas he wanted to use too. We moved all around the farm and the last idea Lucas had was that he wanted to drive out by the pond and the bean fields. It was fabulous because the last few shots really showcased the beautiful skies and the fields.
I had a blast getting to know Lucas and Valerie. They are getting married in December and it’s going to be fabulous. Until then, enjoy looking through their engagement pictures.
