happy engaged couple under a tree

Goodale Park Engagement Shoot

When Alexa and Juan came over to my house and described their wedding plans, I said an extra little prayer that they would choose me to help them document their love. Low and behold my prayers were answered and I feel like I won the lottery with these two. Alexa has an electric personality. She always seems to have a smile on her face that could light up a room. Juan is a little more reserved with his calm disposition but will definitely laugh and have a good time. Together they make the sweetest and happiest couple! They have the cutest way of interacting with private giggles shared only with each other. When they smile, both smile with their whole heart and its radiant. I’m not sure you could ever be in a bad mood around either of them. When I left the session, I felt like I was on a natural high.

On Mother’s Day this year, we started our session in Goodale Park, a place that has profound significance for Alexa. One of my favorite stops was under the most beautiful droopy tree that had names of other people in love carved on the trunk. It was romantic knowing how many people shared a few moments with each other in that same spot. You know a session is going to be good when in the first few minutes, the couple asks, ” are we going to get to dance?” UM, HECK YES YOU ARE! We danced our way through the Short North and even stopped into Jenny’s Ice Cream for a little reprieve from the heat (the sugar might have aided in that “natural high” I was telling you about).

Early next year these two will say “I do!” and I’m seriously beyond excited for some of the details they have planned. But until then, I hope you enjoy these beautiful photos of these beautiful souls. XO Jess
