Country engagement – Jessica and Ryan

We really love country engagements. All of us here at Dark Roux are a little bit country on some level which has influenced who we are in our lives and our style of taking photographs. You may remember Jessica and Ryan from a few months back where Ryan surprised Jessica with a ring after Sunday morning mass at St. Louis Cathedral where were lucky enough to play ninja for a day and secretly capture their actual proposal. If you haven’t seen it check it out here!

Jessica grew up on the most amazing farm and piece of property north of Abita Springs, so there was no where else she wanted to have her engagement photos done with Ryan. We waited until the afternoon so that the light would be perfect but Mother Nature had another idea, so instead of a gorgeous sunset, we had an entire sky with a sliver blanket over it. But with all of the deep fall colors, I love how it worked out!! I would LOVE to shoot all of our engagement sessions for all of our couples on a piece of proper so expansive and beautiful as Jessica’s. This session has quickly become on of my favorites!
