It feels like it’s been FOREVER since I’ve gotten to shoot an engagement session! I’ve had so many consultations and met with so many amazing couples since the beginning of engagement season! It makes me so excited for 2021 and 2022.
One of my newest 2021 couples, Austin and Delaney are my first engagement session for the year and I loved this one so much! We went to three of my most favorite locations, the Oregon District, Oakes Quarry and finished out last few minutes at Pearl’s Fen.
It might be the middle of winter, but we were able to take advantage of one of the very few beautiful, sunny days! It might have been cold, but the sun being out definitely helped!
We started out in the Oregon District. This will forever be in my top 5 favorite places to shoot engagement sessions in the Dayton area. Every time I shoot here, I find another street or another building that I just love shooting at. I’m always able to get something different.
After we finished up in the Oregon District, we made our way to Oakes Quarry. We were able to stop at all of my favorite locations because this is definitely another one! I love Oakes Quarry because it looks great in the summer and in the winter! There’s so many options, and it’s a huge park!
We had a few minutes left to stop at Pearl’s Fen. If you haven’t been to Pearl’s Fen yet, it’s an adorable new park just on the other side of Oakes Quarry. In the summer, it’s full of wildflowers and it’s just beautiful! In the winter, however, the tall grass makes for some dreamy portraits.
I loved this session and Delaney and Austin are just a dream to work with! I’m so excited for their wedding in October!
