The Start of Engagement Season 2017

The first 5 engagement sessions of 2017 were amazing! Darren and I have loved meeting so many sweet new couples!

Jon + Erin's shoot was the perfect start to the year. We explored the Short North alleys, Goodale Park and ended at the Scioto Mile with a stunning view of the city. It was a sunny February evening but it sure was a cold one! Corbin + Jackie are up next and somehow their March engagement session was even colder but that did not stop them from looking amazing! I have known Jackie for years and let me tell you, she always is dressed perfectly! Their classy Ohio Statehouse e-session was a favorite of mine! Next is Ben + Cindy's session at Inniswoods. They drove down from Cleveland for their session and are getting married at the Pinnacle Golf Club this September. I can't wait! Their shoot was finally the first warm spring day in March! Dalay Ket Event's donated a beautiful bouquet to add a pop of color to their photos as well. These two are so down to earth and fun to work with! The fourth engagement shoot was with Kody + Sierra. I have been planning this session with Sierra for quite awhile now! She knew that she wanted a wood area and country fields in their photos. This couple loves all this rustic and I know their barn wedding this August will display that perfectly! Lastly, session number five was with Frank + Lauren! These two were in town earlier in April and booked a quick mini engagement session in German Village. This couple is actually getting married next month in Belize! How awesome is that?! I loved walking around with them and hearing all about their destination wedding plans. It's been a fun fun so far and I cannot wait to meet so many more couples in the upcoming weeks. Below are some of my favorite snapshots from each of the sessions!

Jordan + Anna's Engagement Session

Another sorority sister is engaged and I am so excited for Jordan and Anna! Just moments after they were engaged, Anna texted me photos of their proposal and asked me to be her photographer. It is always such an honor to be chosen to photograph my pledge sister's weddings! 

Jordan and Anna both met at Otterbein so of course we had to do photos in Westerville. Let me tell you, this couple was so natural in front of the camera! Anna did an incredible job picking out 3 perfect outfits! (That tulle skirt and glitter heels... in love!) The lighting was perfect and I am so glad the summer afternoon storms passed just in time for their session. 

I cannot wait for this couple's special day next June! Enjoy my favorites from their session below!

Mitch + Sara's Engagement Session

I LOVED this session with Mitch + Sara! Last week, Sara and I decided to setup a last minute engagement session, just because! I have been best friends with Sara since freshman year of college and I am so honored to be her Maid of Honor! Although the fabulous Two Marie's is photographing their wedding, I knew I wanted to snap some photos of them as well for fun!

This dreamy overcast evening on the lake was perfect for their romantic nautical session. HUGE thanks to Jeff from the sailboat club for being so kind and letting us borrow his sailboat for the shoot!

I am so very happy for these two friends of mine. I cannot wait to be a part of their wedding and to celebrate their love! I could go on and on but I should probably save that for my speech next summer! ;) Enjoy a few of my favorite images below!
