Isabella & Daniel Engagement Session Cross Estate Gardens

ENGAGEMENT SESSION CROSS ESTATE GARDENS

Isabella and Daniel’s Engagement Session Cross Estate Gardens was beyond spectacular. My vision for this session truly came to life. The all-black outfits, cold winter day, muted color palette, and stunning sunset was a recipe for an amazing setting for my first session for the 2021 season. I have photographed in many places and done countless sessions, but the sessions where the setting is near perfect are the sessions I remember for years. Engagement Session Cross Estate Gardens

I met Isabella and Daniel from our free engagement session contest that they entered, and we hit it off immediately! I knew from our initial phone call that we would create some serious magic together. Isabella brought up the idea of doing all-black outfits, which as photographers, we don’t get very often. I wasn’t sure what to expect at this location, but I am so glad that we went because the images we were able to capture at this place was something I won’t be able to do for a while.

We started at the Estate on the porch area. It was beautiful, and the lighting was superb except that the images were soft, so that I couldn’t use them as much, but the lighting was stellar. Next, we moved to the front of the building, where the sun was peering over the building, and I had a great rim light around their bodies. It gave such a dreamy look to the images.

Then it was time for the second all-black outfit. This one was a little more formal, and we could get some more serious looks with this outfit. The place has a tower that resembles Repunzel’s tower from Disney’s Tangled. It was so cool. At one point, Dan said, “I’m surprised that we haven’t seen a ghost in the tower yet,” because let me tell you, it was a creepy tower from the inside but really cool from the outside. It adds a ton of texture in the background for some of the images. If you scroll, you’ll see what I am talking about. Engagement Session Cross Estate Gar
