A pup, two lovers, and a pair of tights? What else could you want or need for a summer engagement session in Vermont?

I am so grateful when couples a) have fun together and b) are down to try something seemingly weird, like letting me throw a pair of nude tights over my lens during blue hour. We warmed up in a field near their house and then moved to a family’s property on the lake for sunset golden hour (and blue hour) photos.

Golden Light for a Summer Engagement Session

Here’s the thing about golden light—it is gorgeous… and it is pretty crazy how changing direction changes a photo. Depending on where you are and where the sun sets, you may have to prioritize pretty light on your face that emphasizes you or pretty light behind you that highlights your location.

The cool thing is that I’ll worry about that for you, and we can take pictures in both directions to make sure we capture the location we so carefully chose and your wild love!

Getting Creative at Blue Hour—Putting Tights Over My Lens

After we felt confident that we got all the shots we wanted on the lake, we decided to spend the last ten(ish) minutes getting creative. This is technically the second time I tried shooting through a pair of tights (the first was for some personal photography in Paris!) but this was the first time I had done it in a client’s session.

And, um… can we talk about how cool these are? I am so grateful when a couple is down to try something new and different, and it is even better when it pays off.

This summer engagement session in Vermont has me so excited for their wedding next year! View the full gallery here!

Love stories? Here's mine!

I wasn't born with a camera in my hand and I haven't "wanted to be a photographer ever since I can remember." My passion for photography developed (a bit) later in my life and since then, I would consider it quite the obsession...

Hi, I'm Ali.



As you explore, ask yourself "can I see myself in these images?"

I like to describe my style as, "a little grain, a little pop of color, a lot of wild love."
