Now that the craziness of summer has passed and wedding season is winding down it's time to share a bit of what I have been working on. This summer was packed full of gorgeous weddings and dreamy engagement sessions.
When Morgan and Jake got engaged, Morgan contacted me immediately about setting up an engagement session. Since Morgan is my baby cousin this shoot has a particularly special place in my heart.
What I love most about this shoot is how unique and personal it is to them. When Morgan shared that Jake's family has farmed the same land in Buttonwillow, CA for generations and that Jake was in charge of harvesting for the first time, it made sense to incorporate the farm and farming traditions into their story. Once we had a theme it was easy to incorporate details that helped make this shoot so unique.
Some of the details we included in the shoot are the beautiful red truck that was brought over by a family friend who was more than happy to let us borrow it for the shoot. The picnic in the back of the truck is packed full of locally grown and harvested produce from Buttonwillow. The almonds are from Jake's family ranch, and the one bedroom wooden house is the original house his grandfather built on the property when he started farming the land.
While most of the shoot took place near the farm, Morgan had only one request. She wanted to make sure we also took photos in front of the Buttonwillow landmark, the giant cow that is the Buttonwillow Land and Cattle Company sign.
