More nontraditional engagement portraits. I know. Don’t worry this is only session 2 or 3 for all you traditionalist out there. There’s a couple of things I’m thinking, as I browse through these photos. First, I love how game Sarah was to try this. It’s a weird request. “Hey, do you think we could do a photo shoot at night, in the dark, only lit by a fire?” That’s got to be every photographers nightmare question. And yet, Sarah didn’t bat an eye. She was pretty much like, “Let’s go for it.” I love that.
Second. This is the fire pit Trey and I built last summer. It’s in my backyard. Soon to be our backyard. Somehow I like the idea of capturing us at our house before it was our house. You know? I guess, for me, these pictures feel like the moment before everything changed. I also love the cozy and moody vibe. I will for sure be hanging one of these in my (soon to be our) living room. Thanks for letting me share. xo. Emma

These are wonderful, Emma! I love how simple and beautiful they are. It’s so obvious the love you two have for each other and I wish you all the best. I’m really excited for the other details of the wedding! <3
I love how you make memories. Rock on!
I love these so much! Usually I roll my eyes at engagement photos (in this generation where we are so photo driven it seems weird that we have them, compared to early decades. Oh well!) I think they’re great and relaxed and most definitely not gag inducing 😉
I just love these! They feel so authentic, unlike “traditional” engagement pictures which look to be so posed. There’s a certain intimacy in nature, at night, with fire and snow, that is lovely about your pictures. Congratulations on your engagement, and may you enjoy many cold nights wrapped in warmth with the one you love.
love the pictures…
These are such awesome and personal shots! You have a very brave and talented photographer 🙂
Best engagement photos ever!
Beautiful couple ….
these are so gorgeous – I think it’s awesome that you guys are having ‘non-traditional’ engagement photos. After all, it’s about the two of you, not whatever is the norm, or the fashion 🙂
I love these photos because as non-traditional as they are they’re real life…and that’s what makes them perfect. Beautiful pictures.
I LOVE your ideas for engagement pictures! they are fabulous! i also LOVE that coat (:
also..funny story…i dreamed last night that i met you and elsie and just went up to you and told you i read your blog! i’m not a creeper i promise! but if i ever see you in public…prepare yourself for a (very excited) hug!
I am in love with these pictures… seriously beautiful… and I am a little bit obsessed.
Wow, great photos! I love how you two are open to non-traditional engagement photos! Makes me want to change it up if I ever got married!
Oooh I love these!!!
Absolutely stunning pictures, so romantic & sweet. I have to admit though, it really makes me glad to live in Florida. It looks so cold there!
That is a great idea for photo shoot..Love those pictures..
Wow wow wow! Yay Sarah, I’d say this was a great success! I guess I’m not a traditionalist anyway, but I ADORE these photos. Now I want one of the engaged couples I’m working with to want to do this! So, so sweet, and you have engagement images that are totally different from everyone else. As much as I love a grassy field with late afternoon, “magic hour” sunlight, it’s certainly not as unique and personalized as this is to Emma & Trey. Congrats again! 🙂
Once again, congratulation to Emma and her beautiful moments..
