Most of my sessions start with a rough idea of what you as a couple want to do. We communicate ahead of time on where, when and what you'd like to do. Once it comes down to the day of your session there is very little expectations of where the plan will lead us.
Mariah and Aaron were looking for two things, to visit Seven Bridges Road and then to visit the pines at The Hartley Nature Center.
I selected a part of the Seven Bridges Road that would allow for optimal light. Their little pup made an appearance as well and joined us for some photos too! I adore having your pups join us for sessions!
On our way to Hartley, I threw on my flashers and was like, "are you cool with climbing through the forest here"? Mariah and Aaron were totally cool with going with my unhinged plan. We pulled over on the side of a dirt road and jumped out for some photos in the most beautiful section of forest! Soaked in the beauty of the light and captured their spontaneous love and then ran back to the car.
Made it to Hartley just in time to enjoy the end of golden hour and a bit of the blue hour too! It was a beautiful Duluth fall engagement session.
