Fall Engagement Session on the North Fork

For those of you totally excited for the arrival of fall (read: me), this darling e-sesh is exactly what the doctor ordered.  Think two adorable sweeties frolicking amongst towering trees (in rich autumn colors) and you are sooo on the right track.  It’s true love meets chilly days meets the breathtaking images ofW Studios New York.  Head to The Vault for all of the pretty.

From the Bride… We chose to have our engagement pictures taken out on the North Fork of Long Island, because it is so pretty in the fall months. In November, the leaves are changing colors and the sunsets are amazing. We wanted to pick locations that held special meaning to us and the North Fork is our favorite place to go all year round to relax and enjoy each other.

We were relaxed and confident working with W Studios New York and had such a great time throughout the day. We hit multiple spots from a shady walk through the leaves to our favorite rocky beach and got all that we hoped for and more in our pictures. Stephen and Yuliya gave us great direction and were so helpful with moving around the east end and making the most of our time. We can’t wait to see how beautiful our wedding photos come out!

Romantic + Organic Coastline Elopement Inspiration

I visited the enchanting Pacific Northwest last year and haven’t stopped daydreaming about it since – and that special energy is captured to the tee in this shoot by J.M. Hunter Photography. With the ocean breeze blowing and an intimate elopement scene by the sea, we’re whisked away to a romantic wedding wonderland, complete with a cake topped off with shells courtesy of Tallant House. Escape reality in the gorgeous gallery right this way.


From J.M. Hunter Photography… This editorial was inspired by the rugged and raw terrain of the Olympic Peninsula. The coastline gives off a very moody feel, so having a very natural and raw approach to the details tied in perfectly with the location. We used elements that were simple so it wouldn’t overtake the natural setting. Another important element of the coast is the movement; I really wanted to portray that in a flowing wedding gown with the breezes from the ocean itself. This shoot was geared towards those couples who have a love for the natural beauty of the coast.

Whimsical + Organic Muir Woods and Muir Beach Engagement Session

I’ve been to Muir Woods & Beach multiple times throughout my childhood in the Bay Area, and each time, I find its natural beauty more awe-inspiring and overwhelming than before. This whimsical engagement session among the redwoods and on the rocky shore has the same effect with a couple that truly exemplifies “California Cool” and gorgeous photos from Mariel Hannah. Get back to nature here.

From Mariel HannahMuir Woods and Beach are two of the most whimsical locations I’ve had a pleasure of photographing in. This setting was truly perfect for the vision of Maggie, who desired an organic and dreamy approach for her engagement photos. My favorite scene was being within fields of Queen Annes Lace that grew so large and lush… A perfect compliment to the dreamy scenes.
