Chantal and Donny emailed me for engagement photos because they live in DC but are getting married in Vermont. Not wanting to do their engagement session in DC, they wanted something more rural with nature. They had originally wanted to do their shoot at a farm because they both are Veterinarians but I couldn’t find a place that was available. So we picked a location that would have a beautiful backdrop instead that they could bring their dog to. Since Donny runs here, he said Burke Lake which was perfect! I used to do shoots in another area of the park but didn’t liked it so I stopped going. Then they mentioned the other areas and I wanted to see them and I’m so glad I did because they were beautiful spots!
There were several great spots so we started off at the boat loading docks and beach. Then after, Donny wanted to go to a spot he runs by that was the dam of the lake. So we went walking and came across the opening in the woods that was surrounded by greenery and it was so dreamy! Then we continued on for another 20 or so minutes and came to the edge of the lake where the dam was. It was quiet and the view was amazing! It was worth the walk and I will be going back sometime for sure!
Congrats to Chantal and Donny on your engagement and I wish you all the best with your wedding!
