San Antonio Engagement: Playing in the woods with Sarah + Daniel

November 29, 2017  •  4 Comments

Some of the most romantic cinematic moments were filmed with dark and stormy clouds and rainy day scenes.  The amazing thing about this dramatic imagery, is it allows the couple in the scene to pull each other close for protection and warmth.  Throughout a marriage, there will be bright sunny care-free days, but there will also be cloudy, low lit days, when the light is found in the strength of your love and support of one another.  

We photographed Sarah and Daniel for their engagement on a rainy day in November.  She did contact me ahead of time with some concern if we would be able to shoot with the forecasted weather.  I gave her the option to reschedule, but I suggested it could be an opportunity to get some dramatic images.  We are professionals and we are prepared to shoot in the rain if needed, however if you don't want to be photographed in a rainy setting we will not force you to.  She liked the idea of a dramatic photo should it start to rain.

Luckily the rain did stay away, but the clouds lingered from earlier showers and helped us to create some gorgeous and unique images of Sarah and Daniel.  We also captured some light and airy casual looks during their engagement session at Cibolo Nature Center.  This location is ideal for the couple that values spending time in nature and wants to be photographed in a natural Texas landscape setting.  The casual looks are optimal for Save The Date cards for their fall 2018 Wedding.  The formal portraits are perfect for wall art for their home to remember this special time as they prepare for their wedding.

I absolutely adore this red gown Sarah chose for her Fairytale Woodland Themed Engagement Portraits, and the flower crown completes the look with dramatic details.  The couple belong in this scene.    


I love working with couples who are open to creating unique art work for their wedding, engagement and bridal portraits.  How do you want to be photographed?  See more from their shoot here:
