An Engagement Session at Lower Notley Hall Farm

Nov 13, 2020

Sidney & Austin

Like a true Enneagram type 3, I am a HUGE fan of goal setting and tracking. A few weeks ago I wrote down a new 2021 goal for AWP: I wanted to photograph the wedding of a past couple’s bridal party member. In other words, I wanted to love and serve my couples’ friends and family so well on a wedding day, that those loved ones chose me once it was their turn.

Literally THE DAY AFTER I wrote down this goal, Sidney sends me once of the best inquiry emails I’ve ever received. She’d been a bridesmaid at a recent wedding of mine, and she was meant to be an AWP bride too!

I finally got to meet Sidney and her fiancé Austin for their engagement session a few weeks ago, and I am SO GLAD that they are mine! These two are kind, playful, and so fun to be around. It was non-stop laughter the entire time we were together!

We met at their wedding venue, Lower Notley Hall Farm, on a crisp, overcast fall day. I’d never been to the property before, so we explored and found so many perfect portrait locations! Not that these two needed ANY help feeling comfortable in front of the camera. Sidney and Austin have such a naturally playful, easygoing chemistry, it made photographing them together a dream!

Please enjoy (way too many) favorites from their engagement session! Congrats, you two. I’m already counting down to next September!
