Abby & Alex


Abby and Alex actually booked me for their wedding back in 2020! During this time we didn't have an engagement session scheduled before the wedding but in came Fall mini sessions. These are sessions that I do every once and a while that are about 20 minutes long. Luckily for me, Abby and Alex ended up booking one and I was beyond excited. I couldn't wait to meet them in person and I was looking forward to seeing the two love birds. Due to my luck, I ended up having to cancel the mini sessions which trust me... I was not happy about. Instead, I ended up telling Abby and Alex to book an engagement session at the price of my mini's which ended up working out - yay! So now that the back story is over with, here we are.

For their engagement session, we headed to a new park that I never shot at before! Maybury State Park was absolutely beautiful and a spot I definitely want to shoot at more often. You know that this was a good spot too, due to the amount of photographers that were there.


Abby and Alex brought along their pup, Arlow, who was the literal definition of adorable. I have my own pups at home, so when couples bring their four legged friends to sessions it just warms my heart up even more! We were able to keep his attention from wandering by bribing him with sticks, which coincidentally is the same thing I need to keep my attention! I hope you're sensing the sarcasm... We had this beautiful golden light coming through which was so beautiful just grazing across their skin. We weren't able to get a lot of those autumnal colors during this session, since I guess Fall decided to start later this year. Although this is a lesson that I've learned is that you can NEVER predict anything. Towards the end of the session, Abby pulled out her leather jacket to pair with her gorgeous light pink dress. I just about died at how amazing these two looked and how something simple like a jacket could transform your look.
