Shane & Adrienne | Elk Rock Island Engagement

This particular evening was different than normal ones. The light from the setting sun was setting was so warm, it almost looked like there was a forest fire. Shane and Adrienne were running late which is normally a bad thing, but I think I discovered something because of it. The hour after "golden hour" is amazing hour. We only had about 20-30 minutes of sun before it was completely set, but the afterglow of this particular evening made for some amazing light. I will post some of the RAW pictures I took to show you how low I was exposing the pictures. 

Anyway, we just kept taking pictures and then near the end Adrienne asked if we could take a few pictures with just their feet in the water. Naturally, after a few minutes, I was able to convince them to fully submerge themselves in the water. I still can't believe they did it, but so happy they did!
