Ashley & Justin | Engagement

I met them on a beautiful day in the heart of Chagrin Falls, and I knew it was going to be a great session. Justin made Ashley laugh the whole time (major points for him!) and you could just tell how much Ashley adored him. This is the No. 1 reason I love doing engagement sessions before I shoot a couple's wedding—you get to know them and they get to know your shooting style, which makes the wedding a lot smoother and more fun! Super excited to work with these two again in a just a couple short months! Their wedding is going to be beautiful. :)

Chagrin Falls, OH Engagement: Melissa & Greg

27 degrees. It was 27 DEGREES during Melissa and Greg's engagement session! And they acted like it was no big deal. To say they are troopers is an understatement. These high school sweethearts are just that: sweet. They live in California but were home for the holidays (more bonus point for braving the cold after coming from sunny Cali!) and up for anything. We walked all around the cute, little town of Chagrin Falls, where their wedding will be later this year, and they humored me with my crazy ideas.

Melissa and Greg, thanks for spending the afternoon with me. I love how you make each other laugh. You both are so fun, and I'm already looking forward to your wedding!

We had to get some shots—and warm coffee—in front of the uber cute Chagrin Falls Popcorn Shop.

We warmed up at The Inn of Chagrin Falls, where Melissa and Greg's guests will stay the weekend of their wedding.

And then the sun really came out and it was glorious! :)

Yes, that's a picture frame in a tree on the right. Get ready 2012 couples, I have some big ideas for props this season! :)
