Summer is long gone but just a couple months ago I met this wonderful couple. Usually I meet my wedding couples a year in advance (give or take) but covid changed so many things this year and it led to me gaining some new friends. I received an email from Courtney in the beginning of August asking if I was available for her September wedding. It was short notice but I was available (which is odd for this time of year, but again, covid changed so many things this year). After the booking process was over, we started discussing dates for an engagement session. They had already had one engagement session before so I didn’t know if they’d even be interested in doing another. I was glad when she said they were because it meant we could get to know each other a little better and they could get in front of my camera before the big day.
Courtney and Chris wanted to do pictures at the property where their wedding was being held… at Courtney’s parent’s house. They have a beautiful home across the street from an old family farm house. We would be using the grounds by the creek behind their parent’s house and then moving across to the farm to use the old barn and apples trees.
It was such a beautiful evening for portraits! I know I say that a lot but it really was. Summer is always so hot but the light for portraits is always so amazing. It was so nice getting to meet them that evening. I also got to meet Courtney’s parents and talk about the big day. Courtney’s mom was making favors for the wedding (I fell in love with her BabyLock sewing machine) and I saw some other wedding decor they were working on. Courtney’s parents were making so many arrangements out on their property in getting ready for this wedding and I remember leaving that session thinking that this was going to be one heck of a white tent wedding. I can’t wait to show you favorites from their wedding (that blog post is coming soon… I promise!). For now, enjoy looking through my favorites from their engagement session.
