We are a couple ourselves. That is why capturing and expressing the love between souls is something very organic for us. Our wonderful friends, Erica and Steven, are nothing short of poetically gorgeous. But in reality, they are no different from you and me. This golden hour field engagement session highlights their love and personalities beautifully.

It is hard to believe that they never thought they would be models, or even an ideal couple to photograph for our professional portfolio.




When considering having a photograph taken by professional wedding photographers, people may expect or imagine a process that’s coldly choreographed. But when you enter an environment with us, you’ll see magic in the same places you may have found ordinary before.


We provided our couple with a one-of-a-kind experience. As for styling, our lovely romantics dressed in short flowing floral patterns and rugged denim for a modern-style look that suits their love explicitly.

It’s hard to believe that they were unsure of what to do at first. A public display of affection can sometimes feel awkward when coerced for the camera. We have become skilled at making anyone in love feel appropriate in their place. We engage the subjects in ways that reflect the love in the time and light of the present moment.

During this session, we moved their attention from their own third person view of themselves to each other. They became wrapped in an entirely intimate moment involving them and their love.




Each photograph turned out as a genuine moment, instead of one that looked staged. These sweethearts grew instantly aware of the beauty within their love for each other that day. The photographic experience helped bring that to light.

Powerful respect for their love for each other replaced their initial modesty. This portrait session proved that it’s what you create within the moments prior to the snapshot that echoes throughout the image for eternity.
