Late fall is hands down my favorite season to photograph because everything is so earthy – rich and deep and just gorgeous! The cool weather makes you want to get all cozy, but it’s not freezing enough to deter you from taking long walks and enjoying nature. I met with Emily & Ryan in late November 2014, about a month before their wedding (I’ll share a post with those photos soon!). Sometimes you just click with a couple, and it’s amazing to watch their nerves melt away as they start having fun. While it’s important to be yourselves at an engagement session, it’s also important to just let go and not take yourselves too seriously! I find that when a couple is having fun we’re left with a well rounded collections of very expressive and genuine photographs. As you scroll through these photos of Emily & Ryan, their story emerges and you’re given a true sense of the love their share.
