Meet our loving and sincerely sweet couple Amanda + Harry. When they first came to us, they had a clear vision for their wedding and wanted to reflect the style of their elegant and romantic venue, the Brantwyn Estate in Wilmington Delaware. We loved their enthusiasm from the very start and knew that they would appreciate our intimate and sophisticated approach to shooting. Since they were going to be getting married in the fall, they also wanted to take advantage of the lovely fall foliage for their Longwood Gardens Engagement Session. We are very familiar with shooting there and know that the shooting opportunities are endless, but it’s also really easy to get lost in the vast expanse of gardens!! Luckily, Harry has visited the gardens many times before with his family and knew all of the locations they wanted to use as the backdrop for their photographs.
It’s easy to tell that these two are absolutely smitten with each other and it felt as if the session took on a life of it’s own as a “lifestyle shoot”, with the two of them just enjoying each other’s company in the beautiful landscape. And because the gardens were not too busy, it literally looks like a scene out of an incredibly romantic movie. As a photographer, there really isn’t much more we can ask for than a beautiful setting and a couple who just gets it. We can tell it’s a start to a beautiful marriage and we’re so honored to have captured the beginning of their wedding journey. We’re so excited for their big day next October and can only hope they luck out again with some amazing fall weather. Enjoy this little sneak peek!!
