Wilmington Couples Photographer | Brandywine Creek State Park | Lori + Jon

Engagement

Face it, you’re not getting any work done today anyway will all of the Cyber Monday deals going on and thoughts of football and turkey still dancing in your head. So cozy on up with Lori and Jon. I’ve been dying to share this styled love shoot with you all!

We met the other week at Brandywine Creek State Park with creative diva, Sarah, of Events by Sarah Elizabeth. The idea was simple: an extended session celebrating love, fall colors, picnicking, and a patchwork quilt. It was a resounding success!  I’ve yet to see Lori’s gorgeous auburn locks look anything but incredible and I’m so envious that she can do that all by herself.  Makeup was by Emily of Cheekadee.

As soon as we met up I whisked them away to a bridge I saw on my way into the park. The colors were unreal. We played chicken with cars (and won, thankyouverymuch) and it was so worth it!

Back in the park Lori and Jon canoodled in a patchwork quilt that could have been her grandmother’s. It was absolutely perfect.

We feared the worst when planning for this November session. We knew we could have had freezing temperatures and likely would have had to bundle up completely. (Lori did take this opportunity to get some new outfits and I’m digging the sweater and riding boots.) Luckily, we got a mild afternoon and even some vibrant leaves left around!

Sarah created the most adorable picnic ever. She had the touches that require creativity but still looks effortless: sandwiches in brown paper, pears (because apples are so last season), Coca Cola in bottles, veggies, baby’s breath, and homemade cookies (which were delicious!). The blanket/tablecloth pulled it all together.

With the last moments of golden hour, we wandered down to some buildings Sarah had scoped out.

I would apologize for taking you away from your work but I’m not sorry at all. Lori and Jon, thanks so much for spending the afternoon with us. You two were beyond fabulous! I’m so glad we finally made this happen.

If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.
