Engagements, Weddings > July 9, 2016

It’s hard to know where to start when I talk about Brandi.  The number of years and connections that overlap are too numerous to count.  All I know is that when I found out she was engaged, I immediately felt OLD!  Then I was beyond ecstatic to be asked to photograph she and Luke’s wedding later this year.  As their wedding will be in December, it will likely be completely dark when they arrive to their reception venue in Celina, Ohio.  Knowing that, we decided not to tempt the accuracy of our timeline for wedding day and started their engagement session there.  Celina will always be a special town to me as well.  It’s where my Dad grew up and where I spent weekends/summers/holidays at my Grandparents’ house right on Grand Lake.  I was more than excited to get the chance to shoot there again!

I had never met Luke until that night…but Brandi’s Aunt Leann had told me earlier that day, “You will LOVE HIM!”  She was right-his squished eyes, big smile, bent in half laughter is contagious!  I was completely in love with watching them interact with very little direction from me!

Brandi asked for three things for their session:  1.  To have some taken in Celina (check)  2.  To have a lot of variety (check)  3.  To shoot in one of the wheat fields they own back in Indiana-CHECK!  And that cotton candy sky was an added bonus :)
