First Landing State Park Engagements: Allison & Joel

Allison & Joel’s engagement session was a mild winter evening at First Landing State Park where they spend most of their summers at, together. I love that we weren’t freezing & the golden light the beautiful day gave us, but I am ready for some cold winter weather. We broke records on Christmas day for the high temperature & high temperatures on Christmas just should not be allowed to happen.

I loved the way Joel could hold onto Allison, giving her the best bear hugs & squeezes that always made her laugh into his embrace. Their engagement session included climbing large fallen trees, whispering in each other’s ear the reason why they knew that they were going to be the best husband & the best wife,  & cuddling in the sand while watching the sunset. I am looking forward to photographing their wedding & their love at their home that they are currently renovating together. They are building a home for their future together & are choosing to document another piece of their future there, their wedding day. I find something so beautiful in that concept & that part of their love story. Congratulations Allison & Joel!
