In another life I think I’d like to be a photographer. Capturing sweet sentiments of new, wrinkly babies, adorable toddlers with chubby cheeks, the stars in couples eyes toward each other. The beauty of it all.
Quite simply, the beauty of it all.
Those beautiful images, that’s really what it amounts to: I adore how photographs seem to encapsulate all that is perfect and good and memorable. With soft, delicate lighting and the stopping of time, there is just something so special about a lovely photo.
So since I’m not a photographer, today we are partnering with Katlyn Allena Photography to share some super sweet engagement sessions today and in the coming months (there’s this one shoot that I’m basically dying to share with you.. but you’ll have to wait just a little while longer! :)). We love looking at gorgeous images and she loves shooting them, which we think is a pretty fantastic match! She is absolutely amazing at capturing the love between couples — whether engaged or already married, and isn’t that the whole purpose of photography? Capturing the essence of love and feeling in an image — what a gift!
We’re hoping these images serve to inspire you while you’re planning for your own autumn-themed engagement shoot — happy looking, darlings!
If this darling couple isn’t the quintessence of perfection then I don’t know what is! The red and gold woods speak of perfect fall weather and their complementing outfits?! Well, what more is there to say!
And this backdrop! I can’t get over how unrealistic it looks — the reflection of the foliage in the smooth, still water, the serenity on the couple’s faces. Simply lovely.
Love. Can’t you just feel the love oozing from this couple? The way they are staring into each other’s eyes, locked in love for all time. So precious!
We would love to see YOUR engagement sessions and wedding photos — how was love captured for you and your sweetie?
