It was the perfect sunrise - not moving too fast, or too slow.
They call this venue the Barn at Glistening Pond for a reason, and although many weddings are shot here, this sunrise session showed us why it's called that.
As the three of us got out of the car, embracing the lightly brisk, humid air, you could 'hear' the sweet silence that comes from nature: some song birds in the trees, swans flapping in the pond, all critters around us waking up with the earth.
It set the tone to capture exactly what it is that Abby + Mitch have together, which is a grounded and tender love. You can tell it runs deep in the way they laugh, look at each other, and embrace each others touch.
From shooting around the field, to taking a walk around the property and pond, every moment felt grounded and tender too. (Besides when the swans almost charged them... lol). As I watched the little interactions they shared in the quiet moments, a sense of gratitude rose in me throughout our time, like the sunrise and fog rose around us. I had this immense thankfulness in my heart for having the experience to be in a space like this with two people that adore each other quite like they do. It's real, raw. Sacred, and runs deep. We live for these kinds of experiences in life, even if its just a brisk walk around the Barn at Glistening Pond.
