Sara & Rob’s Engagement!

Happy Tuesday, friends!  I am so thrilled to post these two today!  I had the most AMAZING adventure with Sara & Rob!

First of all, these two are just so sweet and I could tell from the moment we met over Skype.  They met in dental school and both recently graduated, and are settling into life together in Buffalo!!  They love the outdoors and are getting married next summer here at RedBarn20 :)  I love Sara’s style, I know it will have so many romantic touches with their champagne and rose theme!  I wanted their engagement session to have that same sweet and romantic feel, so how more romantic can it get than gardens and sunflower fields?!

We went first to the Sonnenberg Gardens in Canandaigua, which I had heard so many good things about!!  These two looked just adorable in their outfits, so romantic for these gardens – and they even brought some champagne with them!  We adventured together through the Rock Gardens, Italian Gardens and then found a rose garden!  Which was so perfect to fit with their wedding theme :)  I just love Sara and Rob’s smiles and how naturally they are joyful together!

Then, we adventured on to Frederick Farms in Clifton Springs – probably the highlight for all of us!  The sunflower fields were in full bloom – and I knew it would be amazing, but didn’t know HOW amazing!  I am so amazed by the seasons here in Central New York and how each one has its own spectacular beauty.  The fields were so vast, and the sun came out for us at just the right time :)  We adventured through the sunflowers, and even found some walking trails in between them!  Then we found some barns on the property and across the street!  And finished our shoot by buying some sunflower stems to bring home – what a great memory for all of us :)

It was such a joy to meet Sara and Rob and I hope you love their sweet story!!
