Brian and Emily’s Wedding

I remember talking about their wedding day at Brian and Emily’s engagement session last summer. When I asked them what they were most excited for they both said “being married”. I absolutely love the simplicity of that, because that’s what the whole day is about. It’s about marrying the love of your life and kicking off married life with an incredible wedding day.

They planned the sweetest outdoor wedding in the countryside. Their ceremony was held beside a stream and a long row of oak trees. Their venue had a little bit of everything and I fell in love with it from the second I turned onto the little cobblestone driveway leading up to the property. I loved seeing their vision for the wedding come to life but my favorite part was when we snuck away for a few sunset portraits. Emily took off her heels and walked barefoot, I love how carefree and down to earth she is. We found an open field with tall grasses tucked at the back of the property, and it was perfect.

Taking 15 minutes to sneak away during sunset is something I would recommend to any couple on their wedding day. Yes, golden hour is one of my favorite times to shoot, so I’ll happily photograph a couple for as long as they’ll allow me to during sunset. But even more importantly, this is a couple’s first sunset as husband and wife, and taking a few minutes to enjoy that time together is a beautiful way to celebrate.
