You may remember back in April when I was hosting a Styled Engagement Session Giveaway!  I'm so excited to finally share some of my favorite images from that gorgeous session in May, along with a shout out to all of the incredible vendors who worked with me that day (listed below).

Amara and Vincent are one of the sweetest (and most fashionable) couple's I have ever photographed!  I couldn't have been happier to have drawn their names when I did my first ever Styled Engagement Session Giveaway in April.  From the moment we spoke on the phone and I shared my vision with them, I couldn't wait to get them in front of the lens!

Amara and Vincent are recently engaged, and were so comfortable, natural, and fun during their engagement session.  Jorgensen Farms is one of my favorite modern rustic venues in New Albany, Ohio,  tucked away on a spacious farm.  Their newest venue, Oak Grove, has a beautiful greenhouse, which was perfect for the intimate picnic I had planned. 

Every little detail was perfect and made this shoot so romantic. The gorgeous floral hoops hanging from the green house, the pastel spring-colored bouquet, lanterns and, a little bubbly is always a great addition to any picnic! The light was so dreamy for this shoot.  What started off as a rainy morning, turned into the perfect afternoon, and as the sun started to set the glow from the overhead edison bulbs added the perfect amount of shimmer for a picturesque background. 

I love incorporating shooting film with digital. The Find Lab always does such an incredible job with developing my film, and delivering the scans quickly! See if you can spot the film photos below, and let me know what you think! ENJOY!

Thank you to my amazing team of local vendors!! You all are FANTASTIC! <3
