Anyone who talks to me, knows I am so excited about this couple's wedding in May. It's gonna be at a beautiful farm property with horses, an old barn, and beautiful details..not to mention an amazing couple! But before I get ahead of myself, let's rewind back to their engagement session this weekend.
Ivan and Julie have been together since highschool, so these two are SO cute together. You can tell right away when two people truly enjoy just being around each other, and these two do. It was so fun for me to get to hang out with them and get to know them better as a couple! After the park, we wondered over to the Short North to reward them with ice cream at Jeni's for being such great models :)
Enjoy some favorites from their session!
We may have ended the session with frozen fingers, but it wasn't due to the lack of warmth between these two people. Since they booked over the phone, the Audubon Park was the first place we all actually got to meet. Right away I felt an ease with them, I loved Brittany's choice to wear a red dress (especially in March with everything not quite blooming and still frosted from winter) and I could tell they had so much respect for one another. When I asked them what they love about their relationship, they both said they appreciated the other's loyalty. We started off our session with a little something to keep them warm, my favorite, tea by the water.
After talking with these two over FaceTime I knew we had to make their session very natural and fun, as if I was witnessing a real date and just happen to get some photos along the way. If you are from anywhere near my hometown (and theirs) you probably know about Stauf's Coffee on Grandview Avenue. In school, this was a frequent spot for my couple and I thought it would make a great location for their time with me this week. Nostalgia always wins for me when it comes to location ideas. I am so glad Lauren & Andrew were able to make it to Columbus (from Chicago) for us to get a little practice in before the Spring!
