Love is Natural | Lauren and Zach’s Engagement

Lauren and Zach met in college, and five years later, he proposed in the wintry streets of New York City. However, this gorgeous engagement photo shoot was inspired by the natural imagery from "The Notebook." So many ladies only dream of capturing the romance from this movie in their own life, but luckily Lauren made that dream come true with the help of Cathy Durig Photography.

ORGANIC ETHEREAL | LOVE INSPIRATION

Your love is comfortable love. You enjoy doing new things together and you've been relaxed with each other from the very beginning. Who cares if it rains?! You're going to celebrate the way you live - outside, where Mother Earth can bestow her blessings on your celebration. You place her leaves and flowers on your head to adorn yourself in the life she so freely gives and your free flowing, goddess style dress makes you feel as beautiful as the love that surrounds you.

ORGANIC ETHEREAL |  AVIVA & MICHAEL

Aviva and Michael might not have tried it, but their wedding color was the Pantone color of 2017, how trendy! Aviva and Michael met in college and Aviva did what most college girls would do when they see a hot guy, stalk him on Facebook. The stalking paned out, because Michael thought Aviva was very pretty and the rest of their love story was written. Their simple, modern wedding was perfect. Bright colors, bold looks and a dress that Aviva fell in love with right away! This wedding reminds me of something from an indie, romance movie. Most of the wedding planning, decorations and planning was done by the bride and groom and it looked very PROFESSIONAL! The wedding and reception was breathtaking and the couple were filled with happiness and lots of love.

Sunrise Portrait Session

It's not all about the vows, the ceremony decorations and the reception music.  Dig deeper...capture how beautiful you feel during this amazing time in your life.  Capture the details that surround you.  Capture the light and the breeze.  Capture all of it.  It's all a part of the energy that goes into helping you create the memories.  Being mindful of the details, the smallest ones, and taking note of their influence on your emotions, moods and thoughts will help you to slow down and enjoy.  Life isn't a checklist and although you're probably using one or more of those to plan your wedding, remember to soak in the moments that make up how you check each item off.

This sunrise portrait session, captured on film by the amazingly talented Justin Tearney, is inspiration of the idea that each moment of life is beautiful in its own right and should be memorialized...especially when surrounding a wedding.  Think of how to use this organic, lifestyle shoot as inspiration...an engagement, lifestyle or bridal session would all be beautifully captured with the soft light of sunrise and the millions of possible details in a lovely, organic field.
