Military's Couple's Rustic Engagement Photos - Norfolk Engagement Photographer
I have a lovely rustic, fall engagement session to share today for this sweet Norfolk military couple. For privacy, I won't use their names but do have permission to share some images from their recent engagement session. We opted for the rustic, romantic setting at Windsor Castle Park in Smithfield to capture some charming and colorful photos that perfectly suited this fabulous duo.
These two were introduced by a co-worker who had a hunch they would be a great match for each other. They met at a friendly gathering, and soon bonded over their love of Mexican food and adventuring. They often enjoy a spontaneous weekend road trip to explore the coast, while sampling some tasty cuisine along the way!
Though they grew up in different parts of the country, they both love spending time outdoors and traveling to new places. As we wandered the grounds, stopping for photos here and there, I found their sweet and playful bond absolutely endearing. I have no doubt that they will have many memorable adventures together throughout the years.
I love that Windsor Castle Park offers such a great variety of scenes to explore. And barn light is the dreamiest! It makes my photographer heart swoon every. single. time. I was a bit disappointed to see that the city had recently done some repairs to the historic barns and buildings on site, including putting vinyl *gasp* siding on the ramshackle old house on the corner of Jericho. I'm sure those old buildings require quite a bit of maintenance, but the modern "upgrades" just seem to kill some of the rustic charm of the place. It is still a beautiful park, and quite unique, but this nostalgic dreamer cried a little inside, ha ha.
During our consultation, Miss K confided that her fiancé never smiles for photos. She was really hoping to get at least one smile for their engagement announcement. Mission accomplished. But really, how could he not smile with that gorgeous girl on his arm??
I loved getting to know these two during our session, and I wish them a lifetime of happy adventures together!
