Would you believe it if I told you it was raining 20 minutes before this gorgeous Mill Pond Park engagement session?!
After sneaking a peek at the radar, we decided that we should continue on with the session. And, let me tell you–I’m so glad we did! As any New Englander knows, peak fall colors can fade extremely fast. Taking advantage of the color when it’s still out there is key! Plus, sometimes you just have to be willing to take some risks for amazing pictures. This risk turned out to be 1,000% worth it!
For this engagement session the bride just so happens to be my sister-in-law! She’s actually one of the first people that got in front of my camera when I considered starting a photography business!
Several years ago, we flew half way across the country to Nebraska to attend a church camp. Kailyn was a camper, and I served as a dorm mom and kitchen helper. Interestingly enough, the groom to be was also a camper. After a few days out there, I told Kailyn that I thought Brent would be a good option for a boyfriend. The only problem? He wasn’t single at the time. ?
But after lots of twists and turns in life for both of them, they were able to reconnect later on down the line when they were both single. And now they’re planning their own wedding for next summer! It’s incredible how much life can change!
To Kailyn and Brent, thank you so much for trusting me to take your engagement photos! The weather was dicey, I was waddling around 8 months pregnant, and plans had to be re-arranged, but we did it!
To everyone else, please enjoy this stunning fall Mill Pond Park engagement session! It’s one of my favorites so far!
