Engagement Session - Cincinnati, OH: Heather and Dan

Chris and I took a trip up to Cincinnati last weekend for Heather and Dan's wedding. It was quite an exhausting adventure since every minute seemed to be packed full of fun. We arrived in time to drop our luggage off and head out to meet Heather and Dan for the first time! These two were so sweet and accommodating. They really made us feel welcome, almost more like guests.

Since we like to scope out the wedding site ahead of time, Heather and Dan showed us around before the rehearsal. The wedding took place at Springboro Baptist Church which is in the cutest little town of Springboro. We took the opportunity for a short little engagement session, so we posted few of the pics below. It seemed like everyone in the town was either at work or was home and willingly let us use their yards and front porches for pictures. We pretty much had a field day with all the colorful bulidings and beautiful flowers. We had to save some of our favorite locations for the wedding day though, so more pictures will be coming!

As Dan can attest to, Heather is a ball of energy and it didn't take long to feel like we were all old friends. It was so refreshing to see these two together. You can't help but smile when you're around them. =)

Stay tuned for more pictures from the wedding weekend, and a model/day after/trash-the-dress photo shoot!

Dan just can't keep his eyes off her... and who could blame him.

Chris and I both looked at this one and knew there was something fun and different about it. Maybe it's the color, maybe its the perspective, but we like it.

Heather spotted these rocking chairs up on someone's porch as we were about to head to the rehearsal so she and Dan snuck up there for one last photo.

Engagement Session - Dunedin, FL: Amy and Doug

It was yet another one of those summer evenings where we weren't sure the rain would hold off long enough for us to get in the engagement session.Thankfully, the rain held off, however, it was still quite humid out as Doug and Amy can attest to. No matter what the weather, these two were only interested in each other. This was our first time meeting Doug, but we knew he would be great since he snagged Amy and she is definitely a catch.

We went to downtown Dunedin in search of a more unique feel with a variety of colors. It is a quaint little downtown that is really fun to walk around. Chris and I really love the atmosphere of the area. These two are so sincere and good-hearted and we are really looking forward to their wedding in November!

In case anyone is wondering where to find many of the cute shops and restaurants downtown, this cute little montage of signs will get you going in the right direction.

Of course Amy had to show off that gorgeous ring!

It is so sweet they way they look at each other. =)

Wedding - Dunedin, FL: Laura and Matt

I'm sure everyone would love for everything to go smoothly on their wedding day, but most brides have the inevitable snag here and there. It poured the morning of the wedding, so we all hoped we were in the clear for bad weather later in the day. However, before the ceremony started, we could all see the rain surrounding us. We all had our fingers crossed that it would hold off for the ceremony on Honeymoon Island, but the clouds were extra dark and ominous. They did make for some really cool photos though!

You can see the awesome clouds and rain all around us here.

This little boy gets the cutest kid award. He was a super cutie and was having a great time at the ceremony & reception.

Laura and Matt let us in on their first dance surprise... they started out slow dancing and it turned into a whole choreographed routine to Michael Jackson's Thriller! As you can tell, everyone thought it was hilarious.

Engagement Session - St. Petersburg, FL: Laigha and Clint

Getting up bright and early on vacation isn't much fun. However the nice breeze, warm sunlight, and lack of people make it a very nice time to go to the beach for a shoot. Laigha and Clint were in town on vacation from Dallas, as the west coast of Florida was one of their many vacation destinations this summer. The last time they were here, Clint proposed to Laigha on the beach, so it was the perfect place for us to go for their engagement session. Fort De Soto is such a great place for an engagement session because there are so many different backdrops for pictures, and as you can see, we found a ton of great spots!

One of their vacation destinations for next summer is Puerto Vallarta in July, which also happens to be where they're getting married! I'm sure it is going to be an awesome wedding and a great time since both of these 2 are a lot of fun!
