Engagement Session in Highland Park

On a perfect sumer evening, I drove down a willow tree lined driveway to meet Laura and Danny for their engagement session. After parking,  I grabbed my cameras, then hopped out of my car to take in the property.  In one direction, ducks paddled slowly across a pond and in another, chickens pecked away in their coop. I was blown away–Laura and Danny picked out this beautiful, country estate, a place Danny visited with his family growing up.  Shortly after I arrived, the two walked out from a nearby barn, “Hi guys!  Wow, this place is AMAZING!  Great choice.”

The setting was perfect for a laid back couple, who love the outdoors.  It even came with a friendly pooch who couldn’t resist popping into a few pictures, making the scene all the more charming.

Laura and Danny were great–comfortable with each other and casual throughout the session.  They laughed when the horse on the property sauntered over and nuzzled them up from their blanket and eagerly climbed the fence for a picture against the vivid sunset.
