Dark and Moody Engagement

I recently had the wonderful opportunity to work with Brooke and Alex for their engagement pictures. I love it when people feel free to express their personal style and visions for their images. It allows us to really put something special together that feels unique and not tailored to what everyone else is doing.

Brooke expressed that she loved forest and a moodier darker aesthetic. They absolutely rocked the moody vibes.

What better place for forest but in the Pine area? This area has some gorgeous dense darker forest that was perfect for what we were going for.

I love the sharp contrast of red in Brooke’s ring and the mossy textures of the forest. So many elements in the forest that are brilliant for getting creative with. This is what I love – exploring and enjoying every part of what nature offers and being able to photograph it makes it an added bonus.

We got so many gorgeous shots in the dark forest but the rest of this beautiful place was not neglected. We enjoyed views by the rushing river as well.

Brooke and Alex are also expecting their first baby together. I love the moments they so naturally included this newest little member of their circle of love.

My favorite moments as a photographer are standing back and watching moments like this happen all by themselves.

Thanks Brooke and Alex for working together with me and creating such beautiful moments. Much joy and happiness to you in the coming months!!

Thank you for stopping by to check out my work! Have a wonderful day!!

Warmly, Rachel
