Dreamy Engagement Session at Alturia Farm | Amanda & James

May 26, 2022

This engagement session at Alturia Farm was so dreamy, even if it didn’t start off the way we envisioned.

I messaged Amanda yesterday because the weather forecast had robbed us of our golden hour and I knew we talked about her loving those photos. I wanted to make sure she got her vision and asked if she wanted to reschedule for a better day. Thankfully she was brave and we pressed on. As I was driving to the Venue the sprinkles began and I instantly said a prayer that NOT TODAY haha.

We lucked out big time and got the BEST weather for their engagement session at Alturia Farm. The glowing romantic light surrounded us for our entire session and I’m so so excited to share these teasers of the two of them.

A few things that we ohhhh’d and awww’d over: our copper hair, finding out we share a birthday month of November, & we both love dresses and jumpsuits. I already knew from talking with Amanda and her Mom during our zoom date that I just loved them but then… the bonus’ started showing and it’s just further validation we’re a true match.

Thank you both for laughing through the evening with me and being brave with Nicholas at the very end. It was SO worth it! I can’t wait for their Alturia Farm wedding in 2023. Also, peep that last photo where I asked if they had a signature selfie move and James provided that magical moment. I love it and it will now be my new thing to LOL! Also, HE WENT TO JAREDS!

I am now booking 2023 weddings and if you are interested in working with me, drop me a note here
