Even though all of the leaves had fallen by the time we did Alexandria + Marcus’ engagement session, it still is one of my favorite seasons to photograph in. Our location was the Big Sioux Recreation Area in Brandon, South Dakota and it made for a gorgeous backdrop.
The weather couldn’t have been more perfect—a gentle breeze carried the essence of autumn, and the sunlight played peek-a-boo through the trees. As a photographer, capturing the love between two people is a privilege, and Alexandria and Marcus made it an absolute delight.
From the moment we started, it was evident that theirs was a love story filled with joy, laughter, and an undeniable connection. The energy between them created an infectious atmosphere, turning the photo session into a delightful adventure. Their genuine smiles and shared glances spoke volumes, making my job not just capturing moments but witnessing a love story unfold.
Big Sioux Recreation Area provided a stunning natural canvas, enhancing the romance of the day. We strolled along the serene paths, capturing candid moments against the blanket of leaves on the ground. Alexandria’s radiant smile complemented Marcus’s playful charm, creating a dynamic and captivating chemistry that translated beautifully onto film.
It’s not just about the photographs; it’s about freezing these moments in time, allowing them to tell a story that transcends the images themselves. The love and happiness shared by Alexandria and Marcus were palpable, making their engagement session an unforgettable experience for all involved.
As their photographer, I am eagerly anticipating the honor of capturing their wedding day in July 2024. If the engagement session was any indication, their wedding promises to be a celebration of love, laughter, and a lifetime of beautiful moments. Stay tuned as we continue to document this enchanting love story, one photograph at a time.
