Amelia + Adam | Cardiff

Oct 25, 2011

Amelia and Adam chose their neighborhood as the location for their engagement session.  One of their most favorite things to do together is to hang out in Cardiff by the beach and to eat delicious food in their neighborhood.  We found our ‘magic spots’ in the most unlikely of places, like the bamboo grove behind their house, in the alleyway and on the street and in the brush (literally IN it!) along the walkway in the park.  We also spent some time getting some sweet shots on the beach. But, we felt that the shots in the ordinary locations were the most unique…so these are the ones we decided to share!  My favorite is the top image in the bamboo. I also love the one with train going by, where you can also see the cars in the space under the train. I love the layers.  What’s your favorite and why? Please do share your comments!

    WOW!!! That’s crazy, it doesn’t even look like Cardiff. The picture of the train looks super artistic.

  2. Lizzie says:

    These came out great! My fav is the one from the tree, so pretty! I also like the dog one because we can see a little peek of adam’s abs. Oooh la la

    I love all these photos!!! Perfectly captured Amelia and Adam together 🙂

    Awesome pictures! Love the one of the train going by. Also wondering how agile the photographer is able to climb in trees to take pictures. 🙂

  5. Jason says:

    Nice pics! Congrats guys.

  6. Lori Oxman says:

    The photos are both unique and beautiful – hard to pick my favorite! I like the photo in the alleyway (their “hood”) and also the shot in front of the train. (Time stands still for the two of them as the world rushes by)

  7. JOEL OXMAN says:

    Some very beautiful pictures — you both look so happy
    and in love.

    I have seen a lot of engagement photos over the last few years with everyone sharing them on Facebook and these are by far the most artistic and UNIQUE engagement photos I’ve seen. I absolutely love them and think they will make wonderful additions to the walls of Adam and Amelia’s homes forever. And that train/car one is breathtaking!!!

    All are such an artistic interpretation of Adamelia’s love for each other. If I had to choose my fav, it would be the dancing in the alley since life is about the “dance”. Love Harper too. Best pic yet of her! Hugs and kisses, Mom
