Autumn Cuyahoga Valley National Park Engagement Session with Amanda and Matt

CVNP Engagement Session in Autumn

I am breaking my own rules and skipping over a few sessions in the queue to blog because Amanda and Matt are getting married this coming weekend and I couldn’t be more excited!

Last November on the most picture perfect autumn day I photographed Amanda and Matt’s engagement session at Cuyahoga Valley National Park.  I rarely rarely rarely do this to myself but it was one of THREE sessions that day!!  It was SUCH a gorgeous day though that it was all worth it.  The leaves at Virgina Kendall were SO perfect, it made it worth all of the rescheduling we had to do due to the rainy and crummy weather.

These two are so darn cute together and I’m so thrilled they brought their dog along too!  You know how much I love a sweet doggo in a session!

See you two this weekend!

Springfield Bog Metro Park Family Session in October

Springfield Bog Metro Park Family Session

It had been a while since I had last photographed this family and it was so fun to see them again!  It was a really perfect fall day – overcast skies, a bit of a crispness to the air and the scent of leaves.  Can you tell I am ready for fall?  This summer has been so humid!!

We went to a new location to me, Springfield Bog Metro Park for their family session and I hope to return again sometime soon.  It’s such a perfect little spot with lots of great spots for photos.  There were quite a lot of photographers there so it’s not a secret location but the layout of the space allows for lots of goings on to be taking place without having to wait for people to get out of your shot which is nice.  The fall colors here were especially perfect!

I always love how this family is styled and this session was equally as well styled.  Great fall colors that were perfectly coordinated without being matchy-matchy.  If you’re looking for someone’s style to emulate, here you go!

Thank you again for trusting me with your precious family portraits!

Maine in October

Ogunquit Maine in October

As you may know by now, I typically travel to New England in the fall, generally in mid-to-late October when the leaves are stunning and right at the end of what we in the industry call the ‘wedding season’ (which is May – October).  Due to a wedding in Virginia in 2017 I skipped the annual trip the year before and was quite excited to go back in 2018, this time with my husband along for the ride.  Usually I do this trip solo but he hadn’t been out in the fall to New England yet and agreed to go along.  It was fun to show him all of my favorite places and discover a few new ones along the way!

Usually I break up these trip posts but since I’m so far behind on blogging I’m going to put it all in one post so buckle up and enjoy!  There will be a few iPhone photos mixed in with the camera photos since I love to blog about where I went/did along with the pretty perfect things since when I look at blogs about trips I like to get ideas for my own trip.  I may be a photographer but I rarely drag out my camera for meals and quick stops.  Shame on me LOL.
