Lea and Marcus | Loveland, Ohio Engagement Session

Last week you might have seen some Instagram stories of our family in Cincinnati for the weekend. We went to the zoo, swam in the pool with Grey and ate at so many Cinci staples. The reason we were there was for this session right here. This couple! Lea and Marcus are getting married at Alms Park in Cincinnati this October - and as soon as she reached out to me about their wedding, I just knew I wanted to photograph it so badly! They are just so full of love and life! And photographing the two of them as well as the charismatic Serafina was SO MUCH FUN. We walked around the Loveland bike trail and found some great spots, especially along the Little Miami River. It was full of outdoor adventure, which is fitting since Marcus is from Colorado, which is where they’ll be moving in September. So happy for this little family and I am so incredibly excited to photograph their day in October!

Kara and Daniel | Purdue University Engagement Session

This is long awaited for me to share but I am so excited to finally have it up on the blog! Kara and Daniel’s engagement session in West Lafayette was beautiful! We couldn’t have asked for a better day to photograph. Yes, it was REALLY HOT (heat index of 104) but the lighting was beautiful, the breeze was nice and the compliments they got for their precious pup made for a perfect evening.
We spent the session laughing, talking about their wedding plans, I met Kara’s mom and we chatted as they changed outfits, but most of all talking about the move that they were making the very next day to their new home in West Palm Beach, Florida!! Kara was ready to move and be with her fiance, who had been down there for 6 weeks at the time. And it was nice to walk around campus with them, the place they had met and fell in love, for the last time as West Lafayette residence.
I am so excited for their June wedding at Swan Lake in Plymouth. It’s going to be great to see them and their tan Florida skin next summer!
