It was such an amazing night for this Hartwood Acres Manor engagement session with Nellie and Sterling. We could not have asked for better weather! And of course, Hartwood Acres Manor was just stunning. It is a wonderful estate with a historical mansion and perfectly manicured lawns and gardens. Everywhere we looked was another prime spot for photos. No corner was overlooked! I took advantage of the old stone walls, the gorgeous architecture, and of course the blooming garden on site. I actually ran into so many other photographers I know taking advantage of the beautiful grounds! I even ran into a past bride. 🙂
I loved that these two brought two outfits to highlight both their fun and relaxed side, and also their more fancy side!! They looked great no matter what!
I love to ask my couples to list a few things they love about one another. It gives them time to really reflect on the qualities that first drew them to each other. Also, it just helps me get to know them and the things they value! The first thing I noticed when reading their answers, was that both Nellie and Sterling said they loved each other’s patience! Another thing Nellie mentioned was that she loved how much Sterling loved and admired his mother. Of course, Sterling mentioned Nellie’s smokin’ bod (she DID look amazing at this session!! And will be such a beautiful bride!!), and her smile. He also expressed his excitement at one day starting a family and having kids together. That always melts my heart when my grooms say that!
These two are just so perfect together and I can’t wait for their wedding!
