Last year in the fall, I had the honor of photographing Jack and Elena’s engagement session at both Harrison West and the OSU campus. We scheduled the session so the sun would be setting as we shot on campus, and it was nothing short of spectacular. I just adore the golden glow we were able to get and the super dreamy-delux silhouettes by mirror lake. This year, I was able to capture these two tie the know in one of my favorite weddings from 2020! I am so excited to share this with the world tonight! Keep an eye out for their wedding blog in the coming months! XO Jess
Horray!! I finally get to feature Jenn and D.W. on the blog today!! And, the thunder stealer extraordinaire, Cooper the adorable basset hound. For their engagement shoot last year, we started their session near their house in Harrison west. I love it when people bring their pets to shoots, but Cooper is extra adorable and so photogenic. He let us shoot with him for about a half-hour and then he had to go get some beauty rest.
From there we drove over to Whetstone Park of Roses and took the remainder of the photos with just DW and Jenn. I love it there because you can get so much natural variety with your photos. In June, the park is exploding with color around every turn. I love these two because they are so down-to-earth and easy to talk to. I feel so blessed they came into my life because I feel like I have a life-long friendship with them as a result. I just love DW’s dry sense of humor and Jenn’s calming presence. Together they make such a great couple.
So, as summer ends and we slowly creep towards fall, I’m going to try to pull out all the remaining summer shoots from last year and this year for the blog in the next few weeks. That’s a lot of blogs, but I’ve really found that blogging has provided me with a bit of grounding that I needed. It has been so much fun looking back at all these intimate and fun moments. It’s important to reflect on your work sometimes, and this year has been a gift in that way. When fall comes, I will be posting about DW and Jenn’s amazing wedding from last year that was one of my favorites from 2019!! Lots of goodness to come:)
