I LOVE FALL! I also love engagement sessions! And it is even better when the engagement session is your daughter and future son-in-law! I first met Sebastian when Ashlyn was in high school. She was on the dance team and performed during half time at the football games. I remember her pointing him out on the field and told me that she heard he liked her. According to her, he finally got up the nerve to ask her out. They started dating and the rest is as they say, is history! I immediately liked and trusted him and they seemed to really click. They have been through a lot together over the last 5 years. When he told me he was going to propose to her, I knew she would be happy and I was too. I was also excited to capture their engagement photos!!
We picked a gorgeous Fall day in late November. I planned on going to my go-to location at a beautiful park, but I am so glad Ashlyn didn’t want to do that. She loves to be different and in this case, it really worked! It was a spot I had driven by almost every day and in the fall is absolutely gorgeous. The leaves were orange and bright as the sun and the trees were tall and beautiful, even so late in the season.
During the session I managed to hold back the tears, except for once! I managed to capture their true personalities and their strong love for each other. Also their love of football, especially the Detroit Lions. I sent them to their car to change shirts and had her engagement ring to do some ring shots and accidently dropped it in the leaves and for about a full minute I could not find it!! I told her later and she just laughed, but that was a scary moment!!
It was truly an honor to be able to photograph them over the years and see their love grow. I can’t wait to see what they will do in their lives together. Now wish me luck on the wedding planning! Thank goodness we already have a photographer! (p.s. it is not me!)
