Fall Sunrise Engagement Shoot

Cheryl and Davey contacted me about photographing their wedding about a month back.  Right away they knew they wanted to have engagement photos with the fall colors.  We were a bit early, most leaves were still green, but the fall colors were just starting to set in.  It is so hard to predict exactly when the trees will turn!  This fall rain certainly helped them hold their colors.

These two have a cool idea of using their engagement photos as wedding centerpieces, I cannot wait to see how they turn out!  You will have to stay tuned for their wedding pictures next year to see how they turn out.

Their photos were taken bright & early at my farm near Audubon, MN as the sun was just starting to come over the horizon.  We were able to get one cute silhouette of them kissing with the sun in the background.  They were not the "Old Barnwood" type, so I kept it to the natural landscape and we even pulled out a blanket for some really cute laying down shots!


The picture on the left is my favorite picture from their photo session.  I just love the simplicity and beauty of it.

I love shooting with my subjects' backs to the sun.  It creates this beautiful glow behind them.

It was fun to learn that Cheryl is actually a native to the area I now live in.  It was cool to take their engagement pictures back in her "hometown" area.  This couple has a very fun personality and it was a blast to get to know them and capture how they interact with my camera.

Thanks for stopping by!
