I am a firm believer that the location should reflect the couple. Zac and Emily both love the soft colors and environment that we have here in the south. I wanted to take this photo beyond just them with the tree as a backdrop. Thinking that the two of them could be part of the nature they were in, was the idea. The sunset was dipping just below the tree line and it bathed them in beautiful light. This photo ended up being a sort of hero shot with the two of them looking out towards the light.
I am excited to share images from Zac and Emily’s engagement session this week. I love this image especially as it really sets the scene for the rest of the shoot. A wide open field bathed in the glow of a sunset with a couple in love below the hanging branches of an old tree. Perfect.
Ron and Emily’s wedding is coming up in a few months so we took the time we had to photograph an engagement session at their venue, The Morehead Inn in Charlotte, NC. I am over the moon to have the two of them as one of my couples. They have been through more in a year than most couple have in a lifetime and are stronger together than ever before. Nothing is better than seeing triumph over tragedy and a couple’s love and affection help them pass through the trials.
