Molly and Michael | Pickerel Lake Engagement photos

Last night I got to spend some time getting to know this adorable couple and their sweet pup. We started their session at their home then headed over to Pickerel Lake, which I had never visited before but will be making regular visits now, what a gorgeous place! These two are playful and fun together, it is easy to see how they fell fast in love and I’m so thrilled to be able to document this part of their journey together.

This tree smelled amazing. I so love this image! Michael killed the background expression.

Thanks for showing me this wonderful place and spending the evening with me Molly and Michael. Can’t wait for wedding day!
