Engagement Session at Knox Farm, East Aurora, NY ♥ Cortney + Shawn

It really was a picture-perfect day for an engagement session when we met up with Cortney and Shawn at Knox Farm! The weather was mild and the unique, rustic park offered a lot of wonderful spots for their portraits. The 633 acre state park allowed us lots of room to explore, and though we wandered around quite a bit, we didn’t even touch the surface! We began their session in and around the horse barn, which was our favorite spot. I bet we could have spent an hour or two in there alone! Outside we found the perfect little apple tree. I couldn’t help but think of the Andrews Sisters song “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree” when we asked them for a portrait there. Yes, that happens when you’re subjected to those things as a child! After some shots by the apple tree, we headed back to the red barns, with stops by the greenhouse and one of the many pretty fields, along the way. Once we made it back to the barns, Shawn brought along his other pretty lady – his 1957 Chevy truck. As the sun began to set in the sky, we caught the interest of some nearby wildlife. A few deer in the field were interested in observing the session, but we sadly too far away to have their portrait taken as well. Though there was no clear view of the sunset, the sky gave us some pretty amazing colors to work with. What a great time we had, Cortney and Shawn! It was a…

Engagement Session with Blueberries & Fishing in Fort Plain, NY ♥ Casey + Sam

We were almost TOO excited to meet up with Casey and Sam for their recent E-session, in Fort Plain, since we absolutely love when couples select a place where they can relax and be their natural selves. When they chose the homes of Casey’s Grandparents and nearby Aunt and Uncle, we couldn’t wait to spend the evening with them! It was a gorgeous day when we arrived in the Mohawk Valley, and we knew we would have so many opportunities for great shots once we got there. We started out with some fantastic shots in the woods, by their sparkling pond out behind her Aunt and Uncle’s home, and some quiet portraits by the fields.  We then went to her Grandparent’s farm, where a few portraits in the barn and out by the tractor were a must! The couple also stopped to pick some blueberries together. They were ripened to perfection, and ready to be eaten! While we waited for the sun to come down in the sky a bit, we shared pizza with Casey, Sam, and Casey’s Grandparents, followed by a delicious bowl of vanilla ice cream topped with the fresh blueberries picked from their blueberry bushes out back. So yummy! After dinner and dessert, we enjoyed a breath-taking golden sunset by the pond. We finished up their session with a bit of fishing at the pond, where Sam was able to catch a friend that Sam and Casey were all too happy to pose with! We really had such a wonderful time visiting with these two, and getting…
