Mellon Park Engagement Session | Fall Engagement Pictures | Lynn & Rob

It’s a tricky thing scheduling e-sessions for October.  The weather is so unpredictable that sometimes an engagement session falls on a cold, rainy day.  That is what happened initially with Lynn and Rob’s session- but I am glad that it did.  The day we rescheduled for was gorgeous and warm.  The evening sun was shining so colorfully down.  I started right away with some shots incorporating the light- and I couldn’t be happier with the images.

We continued on the grounds and got some great shots.  I especially love the shot of Lynn’s ring in the flower.  Also, the ivy pictures turned out great.  I had lots of fun shooting them for the evening and I can’t wait for their wedding in May!

Images of the couple smiling and laughing are my favorite =)

The evening light does wonderful things at this location.

How cool is all the ivy?!?

The playfulness of these images is striking.

Great portrait shot!

St. Ferdinand’s Wedding | Windy Fall Wedding Pictures | Emily & Joe

Emily and Joe are such a sweet and nice couple that I couldn’t wait to photograph their wedding day.  I began shooting at the church where Emily was getting ready.  Her bouquets were gorgeous and truly reflected the spirit of Fall.  The ceremony was beautiful.  After photographs at the altar we headed outside to proceed to onsite shooting.  Boy, was it windy.  We decided it would be best to head straight to the reception site.  Which I am glad that we did because there was an old house right on the corner that was screaming, “cool, wedding pictures!”  I am thrilled with these images.  I had an amazing time with Emily and Joe and I thank them for choosing Amber Marie Photography.

I have no idea why this old has such a photo-friendly location like this.  But I could have spent hours shooting here.

I love huge flowers as hair accessories.

See how windy it was?  I never mind the elements- it add a certain pizzazz to the images.

Can’t beat that gorgeous fall light.

Silly groomsmen =)
