Krystal + Rob | Middle Island, NY

An Ethereal Forest Engagement


A forest full of towering trees, a coating of fresh snow, and two beautiful people head-over-heels…if this sounds like a fairytale to you, that’s because it practically is! Krystal and Rob’s dreamy engagement session ticked all the boxes (and then some), and being able to watch the way they fell in love with each other over and over again from behind the camera was everything.

With Rob’s grandmother’s handmade blanket in tow, we set off to chase the sun at Prosser Pines and make some incredible (and chilly!) magic. And did we ever! Krystal and Rob laughed, and glowed, and smiled the entire time without so much as a prompt from me! Even though we could literally see our breath the entire session, they never once complained, and Krystal and Rob’s incredibly natural playfulness created some seriously ethereal images!

After hearing the story about how Krystal and Rob met and fell in love, I knew that each shared moment between them was special, and that the way they loved each other was without fear or hesitation. Krystal and Rob’s journey to find each other was so inspiring, and it reminded me of an e.e. cummings poem I once heard – I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart). I am never without it (anywhere I go, you go, my dear). The trials that Rob and Krystal faced both separately and together brought them to a point where they were able to find comfort in each other, and now, for the rest of their lives, they’ll be able to carry each other through whatever life throws at them.

Krystal and Rob, thank you so much for letting me capture your love story! Congratulations, and I can’t wait to see all the incredible things you do together!
