Sometimes we receive submission that leave us in awe…this absolutely breathtaking engagement session on the Cliffs of Moher did just that. The landscapes made the perfect canvas for Sara Donaldson to capture this exquisite couple. Keep reading for more on her inspiration.

From Sara Donaldson:

The Cliffs of Moher are like something out of a dream.  Autumn weather in Ireland ebbs and flows as if the island itself is breathing; one minute misty and cloudy, the next minute warm and sunny. The cliffs looked both stunningly majestic and mysteriously forbidding as the minutes shifted into an hour of perfection with our sweet couple.  Strong winds seemed to wrap around Hannah and Andrew, drawing them into tender, protective embraces. Their connectivity – both to each other and to the whirling winds surrounding them – was a joy to capture.

While shooting this picturesque scene, I couldn’t help but feel grateful for my one-on-one workshop experience with Erich McVey and Amy McVey. The McVeys are such genuine people who have an honest approach to teaching and a keen desire to see others grow and succeed. I walked away from this experience having captured not only spectacular moments but also a strong knowing that 2015 is going to be a very good year.
