Swoonsville. It’s where I’m at, going through the dreamy photographs from this magical session. They kissed in a babbling brook. They snuggled in a cozy blanket beneath a canopy of trees. They trekked through fields of wild. They stretched out over gnarled tree roots, watching the river flow. Yes, this session was a dream.

We started our session exploring a forest, finding paths bathed in gold and pockets of light between gnarled branches and speckled shadows. These two had a few nerves going into shooting, and I thought they might need me to make a bunch of suggestions, but within minutes, they were all aglow, snuggly and shamelessly kissing it up. Perfect. So, of course, the next logical step was to climb a tree.

Martha and Alex are active, outdoor enthusiasts and spend lots of time on the water. Their wedding will be at a yacht club on the bay, so they wanted their e-sesh to contrast that. I thought of the idea of shooting by a lovely stream, as it loops back to being on and in the water, which is such a huge part of their lives. And BOY were they on board. They jumped at the idea of rolling up their trousers and wading in. Swoon.

And a moment wrapped in a cozy blanket is always a must. I love how autumnal this day felt, how crisply alive.

We found an immense pocket of dreams and delight and mystery. They stopped in the brush and ┬álet me get weak in the knees at their incredibly heavenly magic. Also, let’s talk about their freckles. Their glorious, glorious freckles. Now, I’m a freckled girl, and I’ve had to grow up coming to terms with my weird freckles. Their freckles? They could launch a thousand ships. They could make angels sing.

It was a day full of beauty and laughter and delighted gasping (me) and exploring and all good things. I can’t wait for this awesome wedding.
