Engagement Photoshoot with Portraits to the People

My fiancé Sean flew in last weekend for our engagement photo shoot with Sarah of Portraits to the People. We were scheduled for a late afternoon shoot on Saturday, but Sean woke up super sick and we had to reschedule. Lucky for us, Sarah was able to fit us in before her other shoot on Sunday. And it turned out better than I could have hoped for. In fact, it was perfect!

Sarah was so much fun to shoot with. She was great at giving us direction while still letting us be us. We felt so comfortable in front of her camera.

I'm having a hard time narrowing down my favorites. If I could, I would have posted all of them. But that would be a photo overload. Instead, here are some that my friends and family said they liked.























Sarah was also kind enough to let me turn the camera on her to capture her gorgeous hair, fun manicure (you can't see it, but she had orange accent nails--fun!), beautiful jewelry, and a peek at her tattoo! Thanks, for the beautiful photos, Sarah!

I am so excited about these! Seriously great stuff

Amber Gauthier said...

Gorgeous! So many good ones in that list, I can see how narrowing it down must have been tricky.  I love pretty much every sepia and black and white shot.  But, of course, many of the full color ones are really fantastic as well.  You two are so cute together :)

Sarah Long said...

AHH, ADIEL!! THESE ARE PERFECTION! I AM CLEARLY VERY EXCITED!!!!! I also love that I have the same bracelet set I spied in a couple pics ;) and I almost got the same pink dress! Great minds style alike. I am so happy for you two and am tickled that I got to meet Sean earlier this year. You two will have a beautiful wedding, a beautiful marriage and beautiful children (if you decide to... no pressure! haha :) I'll babysit!). Ok, I'll cut off my excited babble. I'm just so happy for you! And these pictures are amazing.

Xo, Sarah

Oh Adiel, you look soooooooooooo pretty and happy! These photos are gorgeous. I can see why you're having trouble deciding. Love, love, love the one of you two walking in the field and holding hands! (That dress is stunning on you, by the way.)

You both look so great! I'm with Amber - the sepia shots look extra special to me, like that's the color you're both meant to be, haha. Really, though, the way that color highlights the drama Sarah gets in her shots is just perfect.
