I honestly rarely get to photograph an engagement session in my “backyard,” but when Anne and Mike mentioned how important it was to include their puppy, Bruce, in their session, I knew of a perfect place! Christie Hoffman Farm is one of my favorite locations. When I was building my portfolio in college, I would head for home from the city to come to this very place. When the summer sun is creating crazy colors in the evening sky, I race up to Christie Hoffman to get a large glimpse of the stunning display. When my client wants summer time photos, with some crazy awesome sunset glow? Christie Hoffman engagement session.
Anne is one of those brides who knows exactly what she wants, and I love that about her! When we were discussing her wedding plans (date, venue, and all!) she wasn’t quite engaged yet! I’m pretty sure she signed the contract with me regardless, and a few weeks later that beautiful ring was on her finger.
Mike wanted the moment to be perfect, and their proposal story is very special!
“We got engaged August 11th, 2019 after 6 years of dating, at Nintey Acres. We already knew we were getting married at Natirar and my grandparents had their 60th Wedding Anniversary dinner at Ninety Acres. So, we stayed with the theme and kept it full circle. The original setting to my engagement ring is also my grandmother’s who I am very close with.”
Enjoy this beautiful Christie Hoffman engagement session! I cannot wait for their Natirar wedding, this coming Fall!
