Ault Park Engagement Session

When I first met Jessica and Craig at the Bean Haus for their consultation I was greeted by Jessica's infectious smile.  It was nice to see that smile again when I met them for their engagement session. :)

Since Craig proposed to Jessica at Ault Park, what better place have their engagement session.  I think it makes it extra special when people choose to do pictures at places that have meaning to them as a couple.

Though it was a little hot, the light was perfect.  Jessica and Craig are  laid back and fun.  I am really excited about their wedding in August. :)

The story behind this picture is pretty funny.  I got a flat tire at the park.  I needed to go get air ASAP.   I followed Craig to the nearest gas station since he is more familiar with the area than me.  On the way there I was kicking myself in the butt because I didn't take a picture of their feet.  I loved that Craig wore his favorite beat up boots, and that Jessica wanted to be barefoot most of the time.  We talked about those boots so much.  Their feet really said a lot about them and I missed the shot.  That eats me up more than anything.  Of all times not to get a feet shot, this was not it.  So we pulled into the UDF to get air and I asked them to get out and let me get a picture of their feet before they changed outfits.  Thankfully they did not think I was too crazy and they did it without hesitating.

I love the way it turned out! :)  Ault Park has gorgeous flower lined paths, wooded trails, and beautiful architecture.  It is a great backdrop for photos.  I thought it was awesome that I was waiting for them on the exact same bench Craig proposed to Jessica on.  Of all of the benches at the park, I chose to sit there, magic! Next we headed to my neighborhood, Main Strass, where Jessica and Craig first met. 

Thank you Jessica and Craig for a great evening.  I cant wait to see you guys again next month!:)

I am with my clients from beginning to end on their wedding day.  I feel an engagement session is a great way to get to know each other before the big day.  Being in front of a camera can be a little nerve racking.  Doing an engagement session allows you to get comfortable with my style and personality.  Trust is very important when it comes to getting great pictures.  An engagement session allows me to gain your trust.  You can trust that I will capture all of the beautiful moments of your special day and that you will look fabulous in your pictures.

All of my wedding collections include an engagement session.

I am now booking 2011 weddings.  Some 2010 dates are also available.  For more info contact me here
