Chris & Relin Engagement

I am seriously obsessed with these two!

A while back, Chris messaged my on Instagram and asked if I would be interested in an engagement session for him and his fiance. I met Chris years ago in a college English 101 class! I felt like we had a bond because our prof was wild and our table of four made it through the course as a team. We all exchanged our socials and phone numbers and have kept up with each other online since!

I had never met Relin until we had our consultation over coffee but I could tell she was a gal with a vision! I was so excited to take on the challenge of bringing her ideas to life. Her inspiration was the Addam’s family, dark colors, spooky woods, and candle light!

Our first location was outside Fountain st Church. It would have been a bonus if we could have gotten inside, but the architecture outside seemed like a perfect complement to the wooded photos we would take at sunset.

I had scouted out Townsend park to be the perfect place for these photos! The way the light still comes in through the tall skinny trees is stunning.

The best surprise of this location was how the color of the sun hitting the trees brings together Relin’s firey hair and the flames of the candles.. holy harmony!

Moral of the story: If you ever take photos at dusk/ sunset in the woods, bring candles.

These photos were so romantic and perfectly depicting the style of this couple! They were so much fun to work with and so prepared! I brought a couple candles along with me, but Relin brought multiple tea lights, candle sticks, and a rose. She also bought that dress at Burlington and sewed the sleeves on herself! How bad ass!!

I am so excited to announce as well that I will be photographing their wedding next summer. This is my first wedding booked for 2020 and I am beyond honored and excited that these two trust me to capture their special day and to capture it in their own specific style. Thank you Chris and Relin! Congrats!
