Steph and Brent's wedding isn't until next year but we decided to do the engagement this year while the weather is beautiful. Boy did we have a really nice day to work with. The location for this session was at Steph's Aunts house off of the highway. As soon as I got there I can see it was going to be a wonderful location to work with.
Upon my arrival I was greater by Charlie, their very energetic dog. I then met Brent for the first time who I can see was a bit unsure how things were going to play out that day. Seeing as how this was his first engagement session. Once the introductions were done we made our way to the side of the property where there was a nice stable for horses as well as a couple other great areas.
Usually with couples that I photograph for the first time I like to get that first photo out of the way. It helps get them more comfortable behind the camera. We did just that. There was a nice little wood pile by the stable that we took advantage. Then it was off to the tree covered area. You can see it from the highway but you don't realize how awesome it is until you are actually within the trees. We spent about 15 minutes in there and came away with so many good photos. I even managed to get a couple of Charlie standing still for a moment here and there.
As we came out of the forest I noticed one tree in the middle of an open field so we took some photos there. Steph then mentioned that the driveway leading up the house was long and covered with leaves. Well, we couldn't pass that up so I got both Steph and Brent to go about half way down and just interact with one another while I took some natural candid photos.
We finished the session by with these old iron chairs on the lawn. Not only were they heavy but they were beautiful. Those last few were some of my favourite photos of the day. I simply can't wait until the wedding especially seeing how easy and fun it was working with Steph and Brent. Thanks again to both of them for a splendid engagement session.
As you may have seen in previous posts I am now also including specially processed vintage style photographs. Here are a few I did for this particular session.
