It was a gorgeous afternoon at Mellon Park during Melissa and Bryce’s Engagement Session. This location really has a lot of opportunity for beautiful imagery. Pretty much— You can’t lose!
This was my second time seeing, but first time formally meeting with the couple. I had photographed a family member a few years ago and both Melissa and Bryce were at the wedding. It was great spending some time with them and I am very excited for their wedding next season. Below are some of my faves from the session.
It was a cold, cold day when I photographed Jill and Rick for their E-session. The one thing that struck me about them was how it didn’t bother them one bit. These two are such a cool couple that the shoot went off without a hitch. I didn’t even really notice the weather at all. Jill and Rick became comfortable with the camera almost immediately, and boy, does it show. They are remarkably photogenic and I cannot wait for their wedding next year.
I had such a pleasure spending the afternoon with them and I couldn’t be happier with the images. I am pleased with the different perspectives I was able to capture at such a familiar site. I try to relay this to all of my clients- just because you’ve seen pictures done at a specific location, or “everyone shoots at a certain spot,” that should not discourage you from wanting to shoot there. Some locations are popular for a reason- You get GREAT pictures =) With that being said- I love Hartwood Acres =) Enjoy!
I love the lines in the image. They all lead to their faces.
Can’t beat the fall colors this time of year.
Their puppies were so cute. I thought this family pic came out great!
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!
