It's a truly special thing for two people to love one another, exactly as they are. As I've gotten to know Marissa and Austin, it makes me so happy to see their love and their personalities compliment each other. Their priorities for their wedding are simply to be with and celebrate with those they love, and as we planned their engagement session, we wanted the focus of their photos to be on simplicity, their relationship, and the beauty and joy of this wonderful season they are in.
As we focused on things that they like to do together, we decided to start the session at a local coffee shop, where they've had many important conversations together about their relationship. Afterwards, we made our way to Mayfield Park and shot while the sun peeked in and out of a few grey clouds. Marissa & Austin even set up their hammock for a few shots since that was something they enjoy doing around city parks on sunny days.
I love how this session brings out these two's joyful personalities and feels both natural and uniquely personal because we incorporated elements that are special to them!
