Engagement Shoot with Caitlin & Andrew
I really enjoyed Caitlin & Andrew's engagement shoot at the Stone Barns Center for Food & Agriculture in early March. Caitlin & Andrew are getting married in Poughkeepsie, but wanted a rustic barn-style shoot for their engagement portraits. We met by the entrance of the Blue Hill Coffee & Grain Bar, and there were families enjoying the last bit of golden hour with their cute babies and dogs (yes, of course they were both wearing adorable sweaters).
I saw Caitlin's lovely floral blue dress flowing in the breeze as they approached. She wore adorable brown cowgirl boots, and Andrew wore a casual country-guy shirt with dark denim jeans. Throughout the shoot, these two could not stop giggling at each other. It was very easy to get happy and loving expressions out of them; giving them direction felt effortless.
I particularly loved the beautiful barn with the giant green wreath on the front, with four long windows above. The sun was hitting the shrubbery just right, giving the surroundings a heavenly orange glow. Moreover, the barn provided the perfect shade for an even, flattering light. I used the wooden gates, the barn, the stone wall and the cobbled stone path - I had a lot of fun playing with the space.
I really look forward to shooting Caitlin & Andrew's wedding in December. They are an easy-going, fun couple, and way they adore each other clearly shows.
Here are a few of my favorite shots. Special thanks to assistant Vanessa for joining us.
