Ashley & Mike | A Port Clinton & Marblehead Engagement Session

We had rescheduled once due to rain, and were too excited to put it off another week we put the forecast out of our mind and met up at Ashley & Mike's lake house! We headed to the light house and ran from the rain clouds to the beach! 

These two, SO FUN! I can already tell how loved they are and I only met their lake house neighbors! Easy going and adventurous! I quickly fell in love with shooting near the water, so pass along to all your friends!! I'm ready for the beach!!! ;) The skies may have been gloomy but these two have a love as bright as the sun- cheesy (I know!) but seriously so true! 

SO excited for their wedding next year!! Enjoy some of my favorites from Ashley & Mike's session!! 

Jenny & Chris | Downtown Lima Engagment Session

I can't believe my sister-in-law is about to tie the knot! Sometimes it doesn't even feel like she's old enough to be getting married. (That could totally be me just not wanting to admit to my own age- Getting old over here!) 

Jenn moved away quite some time ago, first to Tennessee and now she's in North Carolina, we don't see her nearly as often as we would like. I know for sure Beckett and Arden would love to have her closer! They always warm right up to her whenever we do get to see her! 

I remember hearing the first time that Jenny had a boyfriend. It's so hard, because you can't really do the whole 50 questions thing when they live half way across the country. Needless to say we finally met Chris, after hearing lots of good things about him! It was easy to see that in the rush of a quick weekend visit- there was nothing too drastic to be alarmed about! 

I had such a great time with them at their engagement session, I got to see how much Chris makes Jenny laugh. Not chuckle, but good ol' fashioned belly laughs. Thanks Chris, for making Jenny laugh, smile and so happy! I'm so excited I get to capture these two next month, say I do!! 

Enjoy some of my favorites from Chris & Jenny's engagement session! 

Liz & Jake | Engaged

I literally think we tried to plan their engagement session probably 7 times. Between school and work and living so far apart, then getting rained out the last time, I'm convinced it was all because the night we actually shot was PERFECT. 

Gorgeous light, not too hot (although Jake might beg to differ!) and these two. They share the sweetest glances at each other! They both recently graduated from Ashland University and have so many amazing things happening before the end of the year, getting to be apart of their wedding is SO exciting for me!! 

They are adventurous, driven, hardworking, fun-they are SO SO fun! and both have smiles that could light the world! Thanks for exploring the city with me! Liz, I hope we changed Jake's jaded idea of "Lima"! Can't wait to celebrate in October!! 

Jadin & Kenny | Engaged

Texas Roadhouse. It has played such a big roll in my life. It seems silly, but I worked their for over 10 years. 3 separate locations, One location twice. Second time around is when I met Jadin!! I couldn't believe that even though I had not worked there in so long she reached out about her wedding!! 

Jadin & Kenny have the sweetest little girl, Emersyn! She's a total daddy's girl!! As we walked around for their engagement session, I told them how excited I was that Emersyn too gets to be a part of their beautiful wedding day. Beckett was apart of ours and its still my favorite part of our day!! 

I can't wait to watch them say their "I do's" with Emersyn by their side!! Enjoy some of my favorites from their engagement session! 

Ali & Nate | Engaged

I can't tell you the last time I had gotten up early for a sunrise session. To be honest, I'm not sure why I don't do them more, Ali & Nate's engagement session had my heart pounding from the very first moments! 

The light was magical and Ali & Nate are beyond adorable! With that combo we were surely going to have an amazing session!! These two felt like long time friends, our session was a blast! They were like naturals, everything came so easily for them both! We had the cutest audience during photos, some cows! Beckett looked through Ali & Nate's session like a billion times and kept saying, "They are getting married with the cows?" And before I forget, lets talk about that ring?! Nate, we see you-A billion brownie points! Isn't it AMAZING?! 

I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am for their wedding next month!! It's going to be amazing!! So excited to be apart of their big day and watching these two get married!! 

Here are some of my favorites, seriously, SO MANY FAVORITES!

Amy & Trent | Engaged

Amy messaged me about information for her September wedding back in January. With my guides, I always send a small questionnaire, it helps me get to know a little bit about the couple, how they met, how he proposed (because who doesn't LOVE a good proposal story!), and more. When Amy was going over the information with her fiance, he recognized me! Amy's fiance, Trent, and I worked together at Texas Roadhouse when I was in Dayton for school. It was pretty funny!

Then I started to wonder, how on earth did Trent get this lucky?!? ;) only kidding! We met at a coffee shop, mid blizzard, and I absolutely LOVED hearing about their up-and-coming wedding! They are having a beautiful backyard wedding right where Amy grew up! Amy is the owner of an amazing cake shop in Miamisburg! Head on over to her website and I dare you to try not to drool! Can you even imagine how GORGEOUS their cake is going to be!?!?! Trent is the owner of Phoenix Fitness and Training, as well as serves in our armed forces-- these two. I swear- quite the duo! 

We met at Carriage Hill Metro Park for their engagement session and it could not have more perfect! Amy & Trent are SO adorable!! I couldn't help but smile, every time Amy looked at Trent, she would LIGHT up!! I loved photographing this beautiful couple, I LOVE their pictures, and am so excited to share them with you! 

Amy & Trent, I am SO excited for your wedding!!
