It’s been a while since I’ve photographed an engagement session at beautiful Maymont Park. Meeting Ryan and Danielle there was perfect even though I totally forgot that Maymont closes so early! We heard a reminder that the park would be closing soon and just as I started to feel a bit panicked, the clouds cleared, the sun started to shine and I was able to capture the most beautiful light before we unexpectedly had to leave the park!
We found out quickly that Ryan and Danielle aren’t phased by a last minute changes to the plan. We headed down the road to another park only to find that it was under construction… what are the chances?! I was frustrated, but quickly realized that this led me to shoot at a location that I had always passed throughout the years but had never felt like it was the right time to use it. You see, this spot was wide open. there were limited trees or diffused light and so normally, it’s not an ideal spot. This day was different. There was a slight haze in the sky and it made this location more ideal than it had ever been in the past! I’m thrilled with the outcome!
We loved our time with these two. Their engagement session resulted in gorgeous images and it also allowed us to have some really awesome time to get to know the two of them. Dani works in the science/research field and Ryan is in education. They are opposites in many ways, but there is one thing that we noticed that they share… they are both incredibly kind and easy to love. We could have talked to them for hours! It makes sense that they would have a massive guest list for their upcoming fall wedding. They shared with us that there is a sweet elderly couple who have seats in front of their seats at Red Sox games. They have become so close with them that they are actually traveling down to celebrate with them at their destination wedding!! How sweet?! We need more people in the world like Ryan and Danielle.
We can’t wait to celebrate these two in just a couple of months!! Enjoy their engagement portraits!!
How special is this?! Another sweet KJ Couple turned KJ Family and I had the honored of capturing this fleeting season for them!
I want this podcast to be a place where you come to have more of a conversation with me about what’s going on in our day to day life!
Oh I just loved this session. The light, the outfit choices, the location, the family! It was all perfect and I’m so grateful for a chance to see a veteran KJ couple again!
This new AI feature in Lightroom has made it easier to now leave Photoshop behind and do almost EVERYTHING I need to in Lightroom! Wow!
I have come to realize that there have been so many people in my life who have shaped me and called me up to be the mom, wife, business owner, photographer I am today. I am sharing why I think mentorship is so valuable to every individual and invite you to consider who is helping you learn and grow!
This day was just perfection. I knew it would be from the moment Caitlin emailed me about being a part of their day. She and Devon are in the photography industry and I knew they would put a high value on the creative side of their day.
