It was a cool, windy October day (much like all the days have been this month) and I was out at Axdahl’s Garden Farm scoping out locations for my Limited Edition engagement shoot with Nicole and Doug. I had just briefly met Nicole one day when her and her mom had come into the studio to pick up her sister, Danielle’s, senior portrait order. I knew from the short meeting that I wanted to do some fun, casual shots with the couple and Axdahl’s was the perfect place. Even though it was a little cold and windy, it was a great day for a shoot because the overcast skies allowed for me to use some great spots that would normally have been in direct sunlight (which is not the greatest lighting for photos!). We first started the photo session by taking photos by the bright orange Beetle that was parked in the front of the farm. Ever since my first visit to the farm I’ve been wanting to take photos there and this was the perfect day and the perfect subjects! After that, we wandered around the farm taking photos at various places chatting about the upcoming wedding. Towards the end of the session, Doug had an idea to have Nicole hold a giant pumpkin while he held a little one. I love it when people feel comfortable enough with me to do crazy things during their sessions! 🙂 I had so much fun during this session and loved capturing the fun and sweet moments between Nicole and Doug! These are just a few of my favorites from the session, more will be posted on my website and Facebook page so make sure to check them out, too.
