When Alex and Mike approached me to photograph their lake engagement, I knew the perfect location. Paletta Mansion immediately sprung to mind as it showcases the many facets that make up Burlington.
They knew that they wanted something simple, clean and elegant and a representation of the area and their lives.
We started out the day by making our way down the stone staircase leading into the grounds of Paletta Mansion. The large slabs and grey stonework really stood out against the couple on the staircase and the greenery behind them.
Can you guess where this engagement by the lake in Burlington took place?
Once we had made our way through the pretty grounds we set up with the mansion in the background. It is such a clean and classy backdrop without being too over the top.
Mature trees always add a majestic touch to a photo as you can see. The slight incline of the trunk, Alex’s bent knee as they leant against it and the foliage added so many factors to admire in the overall image.
The great thing about knowing a space inside out is that I know how to shoot to eliminate the crowds. When you look at the images by the lake, you would never have known we weren’t the only ones there. Part of my job is to coach my clients into believing they are in their own little bubble. This way they can focus without outside distractions.
Feeling on top of the world with this lake engagement photo session.
Once the sun started to disappear we decided to head to the woods where the shadows offered the perfect lighting. Here we got fantastic black and white images of the couple walking through the forest as well as some impromptu shots.
Flopping down onto the grass with your loved one is always a great feeling moment. I was pleased I captured their genuine happiness and could provide a visual representation of their engagement by the lake. Thanks Alex and Mike for proving that you don’t need multiple or fancy locations to result in great images.
My passion and biggest asset is taking the time to make every client comfortable and relaxed before I even pick up the camera. The result? Photos of you that actually look like you at your best! I can prove to you how much you can enjoy having your picture taken. Lifestyle photography is about the experience that happens to be served up along side of some great photos.
