Brandon + Heather | Engagement Session

This photo shoot is pretty special to me for a couple reasons... Number one, because Brandon is my cousin, and number two... It is one of the most creative photo shoots I have done in a while (thanks to Brandon's super creative fiance, Heather). For those of you who don't know... Brandon is not only my cousin, but also my family's sound engineer. He travels with us full time and does a fabulous job at the sound board...  Brandon and Heather are getting married on December 17th, and I will be shooting the wedding. We met up for their engagement session on a gorgeous October day...

Heather sent me some ideas she had for the photo shoot ahead of time... These balloons were one of her fabulous ideas!

Brandon and Heather's smiles are just plain contagious!

Love this shot.

I love all the color the ballons bring to every single photo!

Super cute...

This picture is so peaceful! I want one with my husband like this!

Found an amazing John Deere tractor. I just couldn't pass it up!


After a quick outfit change we headed a little closer to Cincinnati...

We got some cute shots outside of the Cincinnati Museum, and were hoping to go underground to the trainstation to get some shots, but unfortunately it wasn't open yet... Soooo we headed downtown.

I've said it once.. I'll say it twice... I just love street shots!

Colored doors are my favorite... I can spot one from a mile away. This
one just happened to match their outfits quite perfectly.

Check out those books... Brandon is a graphic designer on the side. Such a fun idea to use them as Heather's "step stool"... Love it.

Love this out-of-the-ordinary angle! Some people laugh at me when I say "That would make a great picture spot" :)

I think this turned out to be my favorite photo from the day...

Thanks Brandon and Heather for such a fun day! Can't wait for your big day!
