Glam Meets Golden Hour - Elle + Raff's Engagement Session

It’s not every day that you have good friends get engaged. I had the privilege of getting to capture Raff’s proposal to Elle back in July in Cleveland. I was so sad when I realized I was already booked for their wedding date, but SO glad they still wanted to do engagement photos with me! I’ve known Elle for a long, long time. We lived together for several years in college, and have been part of the same Bible study for 5 years. Raff is so good for her and I am so stoked for their marriage!

Planning this session was such a blast! These two spend a lot of time studying at hotels downtown, so the Leveque Tower made so much sense to include, especially since their wedding theme is gold and white! Elle also loves the feel of warm golden hour photos, so I knew we needed to pick a bombass park to finish out their session. The Scioto Audubon Park was perfect - tons of fields with flowers, tall grasses, and plenty of warm golden light. The love these two share was so evident all evening. Though I’m sad I won’t be at their wedding, I am so glad I get to be part of their lives on a consistent basis!
