Bluestone Vineyard Engagement | Darian & Brendan

September 29, 2020

If all Monday’s consisted of wine + laughter with these two, maybe people wouldn’t dread Monday’s so much 💁🏼‍♀️ When we first arrived at Bluestone Vineyard, we were terrified it was going to storm the entire time, accepted that it may thunderstorm, bought a bottle of wine (and cracked it open of course), and then realized the sky was opening up and it became sunny. While we did manage to dodge a few raindrops on and off during the session, Darian and Brendan were such troopers through it all.

I had the best time capturing some engagement photos for Darian and Brendan. Although they were supposed to get married this year, COVID had different plans – but that is SO okay (or as Brendan says, “it’s fine”) because they’re still tying the knot later in 2021. I was so happy when Darian reached out to book a session in light of a change of plans. Also, props to Darian who MADE her “Wife of the Party” jacket. Adorable. Cannot get over it. Will indeed be purchasing one from her for a future wedding.


Darian and Brendan –

THANK YOU for being such a wonderful couple to work with! It was such a joy photographing you both and made my week start off on the best (and silliest) foot. I cannot wait to send over your full gallery, but enjoy your sneak peek for now! 🙂

WHY we're the perfect match


Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.

"Her excitement about being our photographer was contagious."

From the first meeting, we knew Andrea was an experienced photographer who was also warm and bubbly, which is the perfect type of person to have around you on your wedding day. She was extremely helpful with answering any questions we had, and was very responsive. Andrea is incredibly organized and efficient.
