Maria and Grant chose Dawes Arboretum as the backdrop for their fall engagement session and we were blessed with a beautiful day with soft warm lighting and the colors seemed to be on fire! When Maria and Grant first showed up for their engagement session they were a little unsure of what to do and how to act and how it would all go down. Well I think we can all agree from the photos below these two are just pure naturals in front of the lens! I jokes with them during the session asking if they had done this before, because they just seemed to flow so naturally into poses without direction making my job super easy.
This session was super special because on the day we were given and the quality of light we had. That soft low glow of warm light in the late evening in the fall time of year is what every photographer dreams of capturing and we were in the right place at the right time with Maria and Grant.
We were able to capture so many key moments of this beautiful couple in the fall backdrop as the sun set on our session. All of the bright yellow, orange and red that just made Maria's blue eyes pop! As it got later in the evening it felt as if we had the arboretum to ourselves and we feared they would lock us in for the night, but it did not stop us from creating beautiful images! We kept shooting until the sunset and the moon came out!
This truly was a very special session, where all the stars just aligned, as you simply could not order up a better day for photos than the one Maria and Grant were given. We look forward to capturing the beautiful wedding of Maria and Gran coming up in April of 2016 where I am sure we will get more amazing images of this beautiful couple!
