Smolak Farms Engagement Photos :: Ali & Riki

I am SO EXCITED about these two! They just make me smile and they are planning a backyard wedding next fall…swooooon. Ali & Riki are absolutely the cutest together—I couldn’t stop smiling while photographing them. :) I got to meet up with these two on a gorgeous fall day at one of my favorite orchards (maybe because I used to pick apples and play on the hay bales here as a kid). It was a weekday so we had the orchard almost entirely to ourselves. And, because I can, I purchased a cider donut and hot apple cider at the conclusion of the shoot—again, YES to all things fall. :)

Anyway, I know Ali is being super patient waiting for these photos so I’ll get right to them!

Favorite Things:

• I love booties and a tartan blanket scarf…Ali had the perfect outfit picked out
• The light was unreal this particular day, especially at the end…you’ll see. :)
• French bulldogs. I loved the shot of them with their pup and because I tagged #frenchbulldog it got over 100 likes on Instagram…I was so confused.
• We ended the shoot inside the hay barn (probably weren’t allowed in there) but the photos on the stairs are some of my favorites!
