In Part 1 of this Autumn Engagement session, Cierra and Remus were photographed in a golden field. In Part 2, our engaged couple found a scenic backdrop on a gravel path. Part 3, which happens to be this post, may be my favorite location I’ve ever found. Finding it at all was a happy accident!
While driving through the Morgan-Monroe forestry, looking for the path, we found ourselves driving around what I think is Lake Lemon. There were lots of little houses across from or backing up to this lake. In front of one house, across the road, we spotted a crooked little dock. There wasn’t much to it, but it was just perfect for what we needed!
I had packed in the trunk of the car a few items, including a step stool (I’m short) and a green, plaid blanket. I bought this blanket for my parents during my time in Peru – it’s made from alpaca wool! The green palette of the blanket was stunning against the blue-green of the lake. I wrapped Cierra and Remus in the blanket together (with no complaints) and started snapping away!
I know what you’re thinking. “Are they even real?!” The answer is yes. Yes they are real. They are every bit as adorable in real life as they are in these photos. I can take none of the credit for this.
As one can easily see, lots of laughs were had. I try not take all of the laughing too personally. It just makes for such great photos! Whether they’re laughing at me or at each other, I’ll take it!
I may have gotten reeeeeally close up in their faces for a few shots. Just maybe, but it was 100% worth it for these photos!
This last one is definitely in my top 3 favorite photos of 2016. The colors, the interaction, gah! It’s a photographer’s dream! …or at least this photographer’s dream.
