Happy Wednesday, friends! I am SO excited to share these two today! Moving right along with blogging because TOMORROW I launch my next course for photographers, and I cannot wait! It’s been interesting seeing the season turn into winter this past week with all the snow, so it’s nice to look back on these fall engagements and remember those crisp autumn vibes!
I absolutely loved meeting Candace and Nick!! Even from first talking to Candace, I could tell they would be chill, fun people to know and work with. They are outdoorsy, and though they live in the Utica area, they spend a LOT of time together up on Hinckley Lake, where Candace’s family has several beautiful log cabins and lodges. And as they are planning their wedding for next summer, it means a lot to both of them to be married right on Candace’s family’s property. Just WAIT till you see it!!! I was in photographer heaven with this scenery!
We started at their log cabin, and then drove up to “chase the light” as the property slopes downward! We had a little “picnic” with cute fall-themed items Candace brought, pumpkins, gourds, baskets…and of course her gorgeous engagement ring. I was in heaven photographing them amidst the fall trees and the LIGHT streaming in! AHH, one of my favorite moments of the day! Then, we photographed around their beautiful log cabin and Candace’s parents’ lodge. The WOOD and ARCHITECTURE were just stunning…as was the way Candace and Nick laughed when they were together! They also bought a sign “My Humans are Getting Married” for their sweet pup, Tito! They loved taking some pictures with him by the cabin as well!
And as the sun set and the lake colors were more pronounced, we ended their session right there, by the water with Tito – clearly a place and setting that brings them so much happiness together.
I CANNOT WAIT to photograph this wedding next summer! You’ll see why…enjoy Candace and Nick’s sweet love story!
Love these smiles and this light!
Candace and Nick love this rock wall on the property, so we had to start there!
