I love when a couple is just “down to hang out” for their engagement session! Rene and Karen connected with the camera and just let themselves be together. **sigh** This relaxed, easy emotional expression is a photographer’s dream. The sky was ominous and moody, making for some great lighting, and the wind made purple petals swirl down around them under this great tree that I have yet to identify (I couldn’t decided if a Purple Rain reference was timely or offensive… but it was there and we can all appreciate the artistry of the dearly departed rock royalty regardless). Thanks for letting me hang with you guys. I’m so excited for the wedding!
