Erin and Dusty’s Missouri farm engagement photography session perfection on every level! Erin suggested having the session at her grandfather’s farm in mid-MO. She has been spending time at this beautiful property since she was little. With a pond, wildflowers, green fields and woods, this spot had limitless possibilities. As the sun set, I told these two that I would stay all night if we had light!
Huge thanks to Erin and her family for all of the work they put in prepping the land for our session. They mowed paths and picked up tons of sticks, making it much easier to walk around and get great photos! I’m already looking forward to Erin and Dusty’s wedding next May at the Weathered Wisdom Barn in Preston, MO. If you haven’t seen this place, you have to check it out. Built in the Amish post and beam style, this rustic barn set in the country is stunning.
Thanks to Erin and Dusty for such a great spring engagement session this past weekend… now the countdown begins to the wedding! :)
Surprise visitors at this Missouri farm engagement photography session!
Just before we began Erin and Dusty’s engagement session, I came across these adorable red fox kits just down the road! They were the most curious little guys, popping their heads out to get a good look at me before ducking back into their den. Before this, I had only seen adult foxes in the wild. This was such an incredible treat, and something that has been on my wish list to see for a long time. I think there were at least eight or nine of them I counted before most snuck away.
Before getting my masters degree in Photojournalism, my undergraduate degree was in Fisheries and Wildlife. I always thought I might want to work with animals in the wild somehow… turns out I’ve sort of combined passions. Being a wedding photographer means that I’m wildly busy from May through October, but I have some luxurious downtime during the other months. Much of that time is spent outside with my camera, and I feel like the luckiest girl in the world to have a job that I love AND to have lots of free time for things like nature photography (and pottery). :)
Here are a few of my favorite pictures of the fox kits…
