“As a stylist and admirer of editorial shoots, there was no question in my mind that I needed to design our engagement session myself to ensure that it was extra special and personal. I first came up with the idea of shooting on the peak of Rocks State Park when I visited with a girlfriend and was reminded of how absolutely incredible the view is overlooking the trees below. Sam and I had never hiked this particular park before and I just knew that he would be as in love with the unique setting as I was. This peak being as popular as it is on the weekends, I came to the realization that we would have to shoot our session at sunrise to avoid the crowds. Quickly, as I typed out our day-of schedule, I discovered that this meant I would be getting ready at 2:30am, that we would be traveling to the mountain at 4am, and hiking in the pitch dark to set-up before sunrise around 5:30am.” – Anna Elizabeth, stylist and bride-to-be.
