You know those places when you arrive your mouth drops a little because of its beauty? That’s exactly what happened when I arrived at a horse barn to meet Danielle and Johnathan for their engagement portraits. Being greeted my a horse surrounded by a white fence was nothing short of a warm welcome! With their […]

In a season of grey skies and many rainy dreary days we found a perfect Fall afternoon for Kyle and Christine’s engagement portraits. I knew they were bringing their dog for some family portraits but I didn’t know the amount of cuteness I’d be looking at when I actually met her! We met up in […]

These two love birds were a match made in Heaven!

Dan and Mia are a match made in Heaven! These two and their little man Luca had a blast during their engagement portraits and made them even more special because we did some on the beautiful piece of land they just bought!
