A Beautiful Summer Engagement Shoot at Shelburne Farms

Vermont wedding photographer, Danielle Allendorf, recently captured the love between Hannah and Jotir during their summer engagement shoot at Shelburne Farms in Vermont. A glittery Lake Champlain, lush greenery, and a beautiful sunset resulted in a stunning engagement shoot that will be treasured forever!  Read on for details and images from this romantic day.

Returning Home to Vermont for the Engagement Shoot

Hannah and Jotir’s love story began on Bumble while they were living in San Diego. After a few months of living together, the COVID-19 pandemic hit, and they were forced to adjust to spending all their time together. They found solace in laughter and board games, which helped them weather the storm. In 2021, the couple relocated  to Chicago to pursue Jotir’s lifelong dream. They’ve been thoroughly enjoying exploring the city together and creating a new life for themselves.

When it came to planning their engagement shoot, Hannah knew she wanted to incorporate a little piece of home, Vermont. Choosing Shelburne Farms as the location proved to be the perfect choice with its stunning gardens, rolling hills, and gorgeous lake views. Their talented photographer, Danielle, captured every detail flawlessly.  (It’s worth noting that Hannah and Danielle have known each other since their days on the MMU high school dance team!)

With smiles that could light up any room, their joy and excitement were visible throughout the entire shoot! While Hannah and Jotir will be celebrating their wedding in Chicago, we’re happy they got to share this little slice of their Vermont love story with all of us.
