“Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Place your head on my beating heart
I’m thinking out loud
Maybe we found love right where we are.”
Brian and Kalie were the lucky winners of my Facebook Engagement Session Giveaway in January. Being that Brian lives in New Jersey and Kalie in Columbus we thought it might be a challenge to get them together. Thankfully, the first date we picked out worked! It was a bit chilly, but beautiful with a gorgeous sunset. You don’t get that lucky in Ohio in March very often.
Brian and Kalie met in college in New Jersey. Then, Brian went on to become a pitcher for the Minnesota Twin for several years. Now he is back finishing up school. And Kalie is almost finished with Veterinarian school and ready to start her internship in Florida soon.
This was my first time shooting at Virginia Kendall Cliffs in Cuyahoga Falls National Park. Even though it is about an hour from Louisville it was definitely worth the drive. We are so lucky to have a National Park so close to home! I was looking at a map the other day and the next nearest National Park is Shenandoah in Virginia. My family and I love to take advantage of this and we have been trying to take summer trips to hike the whole park a little bit at a time.
When I suggested the Virginia Kendall they were all for it. And Brian and Kalie were such good sports about all the hiking. The trails were a little muddy. And the snow was unexpected. But it made for very beautiful photos.
It was such a pleasure working with this couple. They were so sweet and easy to work with.
Brian and Kalie, I wish you the very best in your exciting new life together.
