After having such fun wedding last the other weekend, it was nice to keep things going with an engagement session with Alexa and Shawn. Their wedding is this October so the wedding is fast approaching but before that takes place we wanted to get some engagement photos done. The location of choice this time around was Trow Bridge Falls which is always beautiful this time of year. Along with it being an engagement session, I also got to meet their newest addition to the family, Kolter. He's only 14 weeks old if I remember correctly, but he was the perfect model.
We started the session near the playground in some open shade. I brought a couple blankets and after setting up, we got some great initial photos. Of course, Alexa and Shawn were extremely easy going and very natural to photograph. So even though we had a lot of 'posed' photos, I was still able to add a candid flair to some of the shots.
Another great spot that we ended up using was the bridge crossing over the rapids. Just over the bridge was also a the beginning of the trails so we obviously captured some photos there as well. I don't usually come with too many 'props' to sessions but for this one we definitely wanted to have at least one variation which ended up being Alexa and Shawn's initials. I think a few of those shots will make the perfect wedding invite.
Lastly, after a quick wardrobe change by Alexa, we made our way down to the water to finish off with a bunch of different photos. The hour went by so fast but at the end of the day, for an hour session they came away with 50 final photos. It was so great finally meeting Alexa and Shawn and I simply can't wait to shoot their wedding.
