There is nothing quite like having an island, The Island of Martha’s Vineyard, for someone who is a Minnesota Wedding photographer to shoot an engagement session. It is breathtaking!
Paul had proposed to Annelise on the beach at Cedar Tree Neck and we set off to make some engagement images for them to treasure for years to come. They were marvelous adventurers as we went from the pastoral Polly Hill Arboretum to the wildness of the Atlantic Ocean crashing on Lucy Vincent Beach in Chilmark. Only a wedding photographer from Minnesota could get as excited as I was with the pristine quality of light on Martha’s Vineyard. We could have stayed on that beach for hours except the setting sun was beckoning us to the other side of the island.
We headed toward the fishing village of Menemsha and found a wonderful spot on top of a hill with the Elizabeth Islands and the coast of Cape Cod in the distance and watched as the sun began painting the sky with extraordinary colors. We were all beside ourselves with joy. There is nothing compared to the joy of dancing on a hill in Martha’s Vineyard as the sun sets and the sky and water are on fire with warm colors.
