Originally, Elaine and Will had planned on traveling down to Nashville, Tennessee for their engagement photos. Of course I was perfectly okay with this because it’s local to me! However, when Elaine found out I was traveling up to Indiana for a week, we ended up moving her session up! She’s my favorite kind of client – too excited to wait for her photos!!
We met on a Saturday morning in the Morgan-Monroe Forestry at Bryant Creek Lake. The forestry is one of my favorite locations in my hometown. It seems no matter how many sessions I have here, I always find new areas within the forestry perfect for photos!
We found a lot of variety in locations around the lake. You may recognize these steps from an engagement session last fall. These two were so fun to work with. You can really tell that there is a lot of laughter and fun in their relationship!
After we finished up at the lake, we drove for a while until we could find the perfect spot for the next location. We ended up in a field that may have been private property. I’m starting to make a habit of this it seems. We were quick because of this, but we managed to get some very sweet, romantic photos. The lighting was juuuuuust right!
Will and Elaine really loved the red on the barn at the neighboring property, Musgrave Orchard and Cider Mill. It definitely wasn’t open, but we figured they wouldn’t mind us using their grounds just for some photos!
We found this field on the same property and couldn’t help but take more photos of Elaine and Will on a romantic stroll through the weeds. I say romantic, but I’m pretty sure I had them do this walk about eight times. I’d apologize, but this location produced some of my very favorite photos from their session!
I realized when going through the photos that I used this same pile of rocks for my very first engagement session ever! I guess some things never change…and by that I mean the way my brain works, haha!
Near the pile of rocks was a swing set. We paused for a few moments to take some photos of Will pushing Elaine on the swing. It was basically a scene out of the most romantic movie ever.
With the sun getting higher and higher in the sky, we wrapped up this session in the shade. I really loved working with Elaine and Will and I’m so excited for their upcoming wedding! Keep an eye out for those photos this fall!
