Ali and Stephen planned the most epic engagement session I've ever photographed. These two are passionate to their core. They love Cleveland, their neighborhood of Collinwood and each other. Unique architecture is their jam (especially for Ali the architect!) They get giddy when Lake Erie freezes and they can explore the icy waves. They are enmeshed in their community, and I could tell just how much they adore this place they call home within minutes of meeting them.
We combined all that stuff they're passionate about for one unbelievable engagement session. During the coldest time of year I might add. These two were more than troopers in the near-zero-degree weather, they had a blast. Obviously, they were fun to photograph.
We started at the Penfield House in Willoughby, a Frank Lloyd Wright design surrounded by tons of land. While the house is for sale right now, you can reserve it for a night or two. Yeah. You can STAY in a Frank Lloyd Wright house. How cool is that?! Ali and Stephen have stayed there and even got engaged in the living room!
Then it was on to frozen Lake Erie ...
I could barely feel my fingers here, but they look radiant!
