Wioletta + Justin // A Parkwood Estate Engagement

I am beyond excited to be sharing Wioletta + Justin's swoon-worthy elegant fall engagement session at the stunning and luxurious Parkwood Estate - still swooning at how amazing it was! When Wioletta and Justin told me they wanted to do their September engagement shoot at Parkwood Estate, I was so excited to showcase their love in this beautiful setting.

Engagement shoot details

  • Date: Mid-September

About the shoot

It’s not every day that I get to shoot a beautiful couple in a venue that has appeared as a backdrop for so many awesome movies like X-Men, Billy Madison, Chicago, Mrs. Winterbourne, and lots more.

Weather and outfit details

It was late afternoon when we began our session; when the sun dips a bit, it can create more flattering light on the skin. We started having a more casual and playful look (a soft palette of pale blue, navy, and white) - and later switched to a more elegant and bolder pallet of red, navy black, and white!! If you are looking for a softer look - I always tell my clients to stick with soft tones and neutrals - Long and flow dresses allow for movement but create such timeliness looks.

Why I love Parkwood estate for engagement shoots

I have nothing about good things to say about why I just LOVE shooting at Parkwood Estate.The estate has a beautiful large garden with pools of water and fountains, lots of greenery, beautiful staircases, and very elegant architecture. It really has the best of both worlds with stunning architecture as well as greenery.  I literally could have kept shooting there for hours! If you are on the fence about doing your engagement session here - it will surely not disappoint.
