Oh, these two…. Could the be any more adorable?? Nope. Jacqueline searched high and low for her perfect wedding photographer and luckily, my work and website really spoke to her.
I met Jacqueline and Austin for the first time right before we started photographing their glamping engagement photos in Letchworth Park, but by the end, we felt like longtime friends. Not only are these two stunningly gorgeous, they are open for anything, learn quickly and have a wonderful sense of humor!
We started as I always do, with the formal portraits in fancier outfits. I call this the warm up. We rarely use these images, but they teach me how people pose themselves, their natural smiles and their forced smiles. Most of this time is spent breaking this down.
Loving this large guestbook from @jacquelineegan engagement photos! Beautiful people! Gorgeous location out in Letchworth in the Fall. Just a few more days before their epic wedding. #Letchworth #585wedding #guestbook #engagementphotos #mckaysphotography @prodpi

If I’m lucky, I can capture an in between moment.
We then moved along to find a quiet spot to have a little picnic for their relaxed glamping engagement photos. It was a very busy Fall Saturday in the Letchworth park, so it wasn’t an easy task. Luckily, I found a little nook behind a building that offered the perfect location. We laid out a little rustic chic ‘glamping’ picnic for a few film photos.
- Special thanks to my past Bride, Jodi for her prop styling! Together, we ensured it all fit nicely in to a vintage suitcase for easy carrying and setup.
After a little wine, whiskey and snuggling, these two rocked it and needed very little direction!
We could have spent the entire rest of the day photographing their engagement pictures. With a little tease of rainy sprinkles, we pulled the plug and called it a day. We definitely captured more than enough for their wedding guestbook and if we kept going, there would be way too many choices! With such a gorgeous couple, with natural grace, Jacqueline and Austin are made for being in front of the camera.
Here is their wedding signature guestbook layout:
