Engagement photo sessions are always imagined with illusions of gorgeous light and a beautiful sunset. At least, I know they are for me! But sometimes Mother Nature has other plans for us. I will inevitably get an email from a concerned couple about a week out with que...

That is a great question. If you go ahead and Google, "Sunflower Fields Near Me" you will be inundated with GLORIOUS photos of epic sunflowers and endless fields of beauty! Golden meadows of dreamlike blossoms dancing in the breeze.

When you hear the words "Let's do engagement pictures at a brewery" a few things come to mind...
