We had the best night for an engagement session at Knox Farm State Park in East Aurora, NY! Kristy and Rich were so much fun to photograph. Their wedding is in June of 2018! We can not wait!

We had so much in common with this bride and groom! There was talk of golf, wine, Napa! So many little things we love.

The sun was starting to set, and it was time for the wine to come out! Kristy and Rich brought a picnic basket and one of their favorite wines! It was awesome! 

We had them bring their wine glasses out into the open field, where the sky looked amazing! We asked for a simple toast! We wanted them to stand further away from each other because the back drop was so beautiful. They both had super casual poses. 

We used some added off camera lighting, as it was getting dark. Neal wanted to create a really nice glow on both Kristy and Rich. We used two lights for this image.

We started off the session just walking around Knox Farm State Park. We stopped in some different areas that we have never really worked in. We got some beautiful images! We knew once the sun set, we wanted to be in this open field. The colors in the sky are so pretty! I love how it looks with the dark trees in the back. 

We can not wait until their wedding! The reception will be at the Statler is downtown Buffalo! One of our favorite venues!
