Happy Saturday Friends!
I haven’t always been an Engagement Photographer in Columbus Ohio. Once upon a time I was a new grad from a small Bible College in Portland, Oregon and I had these two wonderful friends. Actually, I still have these two friends, even though we live thousands of miles apart now. But back then they asked if I would have the very special honor of taking their engagement photos (I also was there when they got engaged, but that is another post for another time) and it was pretty much the most wonderful day with them. We drove out to Edgefield, McMenamins, which is not only a fantastic restaurant, but also has a stunning vineyard and property.
These two have some of the kindest, most ‘others focused’ hearts that I’ve ever known. Their love for the Lord simply spills out onto those around them and I’m so thankful that I can call them both trusted friends. They are now serving in the UK and touching lives for the Kingdom! Its amazing to see the journey they have gone on together. And TODAY they announced that they will be adding a little treasure to their home and family and it just felt right to post this in remembrance of where they have come from.
Aren’t they just the best looking couple ever?!
These kind of candid moments are why I love engagement sessions! Once I can get my clients to forget that I’m actually there is when real magic starts to happen. Ryan and Sarah were always so natural in front of the camera and thats mostly due to how much the love being together. They were way more excited about spending a few hours together than they were about me taking their pictures.
I wish I could be in England to take your maternity pictures, you guys! You are going to rock this parenthood thing. Thank you for the memories and trusting me to document yours! Your stunning Engagement Session is always going to be a favorite.
