Erin + Dan Engaged!

We had the great pleasure of meeting Erin + Dan for the first time at one of their favorite spots for their engagement photos. It was the perfect place for a picnic date, with beautiful views of the water at sunset. Here in her own words, Erin shares her impressions about the experience:

We wanted to go ahead and do engagement photos for the obvious reason, we wanted to document this huge milestone in both of our lives. We wanted to have the engagement photos done at a location that meant something to us. Dan and I both love going to the Manor and just relaxing, taking in the scenery. The Manor has always been a place for me and my family to go unwind and relax, I have been going with my family since I was a baby, so it meant a lot and felt right to have an important life moment documented at a gorgeous location that has really been a part of our lives for many years.

The shoot itself was really fun and easier then expected. We were both nervous at first, but after a few shots, it started to feel like hanging out with old friends, taking pictures, no stress involved. Dan and I had a lot of trouble deciding what props we wanted to bring to make our pictures more personal and interesting. We ended up deciding on a picnic basket, filled with wine, glasses and candles – keeping it simple and romantic ended up working out really well for us and made for really sweet shots.

When we received some of the products we ordered, we were so excited! The photos came out beautiful. Our family loved getting our prints and we love that we get to hold onto some of our favorite shots to share with our family forever.
