Sunset Pinnacle Overlook Engagement Session
Sometimes rain brings beautiful things! For Morgan and Sam’s Sunset Pinnacle Overlook engagement session the rain did just that!
Their session started out on the gloomier side. Big clouds rolling in. To most people this would seem like a bummer for a photo session, but honestly, photographers love it!
It just opens up so much creativity.
So at this point, I was pretty happy with the variety these two were going to have in their session. We were about thirty minutes in, and I knew Morgan’s second outfit was going to be a dress. So I wanted to get her into that ASAP!
I knew it was going to be stunning.
So I sent them off to the car to change while I did ring shots. Just as I finished up, a rain drop hit me on the arm. And then another. And another. My heart instantly sunk! We had not taken any photos in their second outfits, and we were barely halfway through!
A slight panic filled the back of my mind.
The two of them headed back towards me with what seemed like no worry about the weather. They were actually happy for the rain because it was cooling the temperature off a bit. I was so relieved to know they were totally up for whatever came their way! They are absolutely my type of couple! So with a slight drizzle around us, we started up the second half of the session. Not even five minutes later, you’ll never guess what happened! The sun broke through the bottom of the clouds, and it was one of the brightest sunsets I have ever photographed!
I couldn’t believe my eyes!
The two of them were twirling, on the edge of an overlook, with bright rays of sun shining behind them! That moment will stay in my memory bank forever. It was stunning! What went from clouds and rain turned into sunshine and glow!
The rest of their session was vibrant, colorful, and so much fun!
Morgan and Sam know exactly how to make each other laugh. They were constantly goofing with each other and keeping the mood so lighthearted! They had never done professional photos before so were a bit nervous, but just letting them laugh and be themselves was all they needed to absolutely rock their session! It was so fun to just seem the two of them be together!
It reminds me so much of Joel and I!
Happy making jokes with each other. Trying new things. Smiling the whole way through! Morgan and Sam’s session was one to remember. If their Brick Gables wedding is anything like their Sunset Pinnacle Overlook engagement session, you all better hold on to your seats! I don’t know if we will be able to handle how incredible it will be! May 2022 can’t come soon enough!! Hopefully these stunning photos will hold you two over until then!
