Love is in the air friends! I have another stellar engagement session to share with y'all. Mallory and Jacob are going to be getting married June 2017 at Nazareth Hall in Grand Rapids, Ohio and I can't wait! When Mallory suggested doing the engagement session at the Toledo Botanical Gardens I was so excited! I had never been there before, but...I mean it's the botanical gardens...how could we go wrong?? AND it did not disappoint! Oh how I wish I lived closer to that location. The light fluttering through the trees was absolutely dreamy, and all the paths and nooks and crannies gave me an endless supply of opportunities. In fact it was so vast it was slightly overwhelming at first. I am thrilled with how these turned out. You can see how much fun we had in these pictures. Jacob is a complete crack up. And on a side note, I'd like to take a moment to express how difficult it is to say the name Jacob, since I am married to one but he goes by Jake...seriously the struggle is real lol. Here are just a few from their session, if you'd like to see more check out their slideshow.
I just need to comment on this one ^^ ha ha... sometimes I will ask clients to make funny faces at each other...it's not so much that I want that funny face, I want the laugh after....but Jacob can hold a face for a ridiculously long time bahahaha. I just love this picture...
In this one they are losing it because of my creeper voice...If you have ever been my client, you probably know what I'm talking about...if you haven't been my client...well you'll just have to book me to find out :)
Last one of the Mallory + Jacob "pop up addition" ;) This little lady was creepin' on our session and after we walked away was going absolutely nuts splashing and jumping in the creek with a duck. She looked a little crazy...I was slightly concerned that she would come running out of the grass and bulldoze us... she didn't...we are fine :)
These two are already my friends...so of course we were going to have fun, and this session did not disappoint! Roger is an officer for the Lima Police Department, and I love that they wanted to include that in their images. You can only see bits of Sami's shirt but it says "I am the ♥ behind this blue line" ughhh they are so cute. After our downtown session we headed out to the park to catch the sunset and the images there are breathtaking. The tall grass was swaying in the breeze with the slightest hint of purple on the tops...it was dreamy. All I know is I was doing happy dances around my office (aka kitchen) during the editing of their session ♥ I am stupid excited to see what we can do in the beautiful Hocking Hills for their intimate wedding on the waterfront of Old Man Cave..EEEEEEEE!!!!
