Olivia & Jeffery | Winter Ohio Engagement

It definitely gets cold here in Ohio, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t schedule fun engagement sessions when it snows! I love meeting new couples and learning more about them before and during their shoot.

A great place for photos, especially with engagements, is the Maumee Bay State Park in Oregon, Ohio. This state park boasts a lot of great spots such as hiking trails, the boardwalk on the wetlands, the rocks along the pond, and the water on the lake. There’s a nearby nature center and wildlife area as well in case you need some more locations with which to choose. This state park is such a gem for any kind of photo session! I love shooting Ohio engagements (and even families) here!

We started Olivia and Jeffery’s engagement photos among the trees and near the lake. It was so cold that you could still see the recent snowfall on the ground and on the water as well. It really looked like Olivia and Jeffery were floating among the clouds!

After an outfit change, we took some more photos around the property. Olivia and Jeffery were so calm and natural in the front of the camera. When you think about it, every couple is a little nervous before their engagement session. It’s because they aren’t in front of a camera every day. As photographers, we just think of it as second nature because we are shooting with our camera all the time. However, I make sure that ALL of my clients know that I will be here to guide them all through their session! You never have to worry about posing or where to place your arms or hands. I will make sure you look perfect for your session!

Three tips to remember for your session:

  1. Relax and stay calm! 😌
  2. BE YOURSELF! I don’t want a different YOU, I want the person you are on a normal basis! 🤗
  3. Trust me! I see things in a creative way! If I tell you to put your hand a certain way and it feels weird to you – TRUST ME, it looks good! 😉 (if it looks odd, I’ll change it!)
  4. Don’t over think it! It’s just me with a camera, capturing YOU as YOU. Simple as that. ❤️
  5. HAVE FUN! 😝

Congrats Olivia and Jeffrey! I can’t wait to shoot your wedding! If you’re interested in scheduling an engagement session, I would love to talk with you more! Be sure to contact me so we can start planning!

No matter what the session is, there is more to a photo session than one thinks. It’s more than just showing up the day of, smiling for photos and then receiving them a few weeks later. It’s the time, energy and thought process that I personally put into each session (the value), that sometimes people […]


I love making connections before I shoot any engagement session, especially when I already know half of the couple! Dakota and I both work for the same company, Sunrise Cooperative in Ohio. I work in the marketing department and he in the energy department. His area of expertise deals with propane gas, fuel delivery, off […]


I’m so thrilled to show another beautiful fall engagement session! Look at those colors?! Every season is wonderful because even in good ‘ole Ohio, I can find the beauty in the simplest things. Someone once told me, “Oh, you call that art? We call that junk!” I literally laughed out loud! It’s amazing the difference […]
