Supersecret Straw Field - Fall Engagement Photos

Who ever thought this straw field would turned out such a great place for these fall engagement photos. We actually did! We love to get feedback from you, and we tend to stay very openminded,  and we won’t missed out on this challenge. Feeling the “do what have never been done” kinda thing. So as soon as we heard it, knew this would work perfectly.

I’ve looked it up too, straw fields consisting of the dry stalks of cereal plants after the grain and chaff have been removed. It makes up about half of the yield of cereal crops such as barley, oats, rice, rye and wheat. It has a number of different uses,  including fuel, livestock, bedding and fodder, thatching and basket making.

Straw is usually gathered and stored in a straw bale, which is a bale, or bundle, of straw tightly bound with twine, wire, or string. Straw bales may be square, rectangular, or round, and can be very large.

These bales were medium height rectangular and were perfect seat on. We love the boldness, all the “let’s head offroad and improvise as we go” vibe. That’s exactly how life is sometimes, surprisingly simple, who would knew! Straw fields always reminds me traveling and road trips. I don’t know if that’s because I used to ride car a lot this time of the year, or if it is just my love for even plain ground of Alentejo. Ohhh Alentejo… this perfect southern place, a few minutes from Lisbon. Alentejo can be very dry, specially in the summer. The feeling of open windows, wind flowing while playing music in the background and going through an almost endless straight road, straw fields on both sides, looking where to stop next.

Can you feel it too?
