Ansley and Brandon made their engagement session chill and fun by opening a bottle of champagne before starting the shoot. They didn’t have a lot of posed shots, they just walked, ran and played around while the photographer just followed them. Also, Ansley wore a cropped top and flowy skirt for that carefree look. And judging by the photos, the couples surely had A LOT of fun.
