Fall Dolly Sods Wilderness Engagement
Beautiful Souls Shone Through at this Fall Picnic Engagement
This picnic engagement shoot in the Dolly Sods Wilderness was tender, romantic, and beautiful. Tayleigh and Kristin are adventurers at heart, with such a passion for life. When she was telling me about their relationship, Kristin said ‘We grabbed a couple of drinks at Jasper, and the rest was history. We were immediately drawn to each other’s energy, kindness, and lust for life. Our friends say we have “big feral cat energy” – meaning we are always on the go, but somehow manage to keep attracting other herds of cats along the way.’
Their hand-in-hand love for community and for adventure fully shined through during this picnic engagement shoot. Kristin and Tay were so fun, so full of energy and life in front of the camera. Then, when the pictures were done, they invited me to their picnic and we sipped bourbon together and got into the deep stuff! Their warm-hearted generosity is vibrant and shows in the images we captured.
Styling the Perfect Mountain Picnic Engagement Session
Fall is truly something to behold in this part of the world. Dolly Sods has endless wild blueberry bushes, and in the fall they turn bright red. Because of this, I knew that I wanted to create a picnic engagement session that felt right at home in the natural beauty. So, I created two floral arrangements that echoed the wildness and rich colors of the wilderness. I kept the rest of the picnic styling in neutral shades and natural textures so that the flowers and their beautiful love were highlighted most vividly.
Spending the day celebrating Kristin and Tay was such a privilege and a joy!
