Farm to table engagement

Happy Friday guys! This e-sesh is one of the sweetest and the perfect inspiration for any fall engagement shoots you might have coming up. The reasoning behind it was simple. Highlight the treasure there is to just living life with one another. To Arlina + Dusty that meant having Cluney Photo capture their most favorite times together – the mundane moments of running errands or spending time in the kitchen prepping for dinner, except Arlina got to wear a pretty flowy dress.

Dusty & I met very casually. We had all the same acquaintances and saw each other often but it wasn’t until after a few years of being in the same place at the same time that we realized we had so much in common, including an interest in each other! Almost as soon as we sheepishly confessed our liking for one another, Dusty got a job that would move him five hours away, just like that. We chose to build our friendship from there based on a lot of trust, a lot of one-person road trips & “missing you” letters, a lot of late night minutes on the phone, and a LOT of good ol’ communication. But, nevertheless it was always worth it to us if it meant someday when the timing was right, we could be together and that was essentially what we longed for.

Love, love, love how Arlina describes the meaning behind their engagement shoot..

When it came to our engagement session we really wanted to highlight the treasure there is to just living life with one another. Our dating years were filled with the most ordinary of memories but it was the mundane of grabbing some grub or running errands that became some of our most favorite times together. Dusty’s family lives in a beautiful house with an immaculate garden built from scratch. Being in the garden and picking fresh vegetables or gorgeous flowers helps us remember how blessed we are to be a part of an ordinary life that can be converted into a handmade story uniquely depicted by us. We may not always have days filled with extraordinary sightseeing or live in a million dollar home but, we’ll be cooking eggs in routine every morning, sleeping on a bed without sheets when we’re too tired to finish the laundry that night and in the process be so extremely and utterly happy with our simple yet oh-so-very-lovely little life. Soon we’ll be doing our ‘everyday’, together and we couldn’t imagine anything more exciting than that!

As a rule, I generally detest the concept of engagement photos but I absolutely ADORE these. Now this is a photo shoot concept I can get behind. Such a happy, honest & good-looking couple. I wish them the best of luck & happiness! Also, those veggies look delicious!

This couple wanted their e-sesh to highlight their favorite times together - the sweet & mundane moments:

Wow, that is a really awesome concept and engagement shoot! Love the fact that they're capturing the ordinary...because I think that's what marriage is all about - sharing in the everyday nuances =) Super cute! Congrats to the happy couple!!!

Gorgeous pictures, but the one of Arlina and Dusty laying their heads next to each other is just so classy and out of this world! Should be in an exhibit show!

Love that they chose to depict the simple moments in life that can make a relationship so special. In a relationship, it's not always big romance and gestures, but having the person you love by your side to make every little thing better and brighter.
