Wedding season is in full swing here at MNR Photography (I need to type that as much as possible these days because I’m undergoing a NAME CHANGE SOON!!!) and engagement sessions are one of my fave parts in the get-to-know-my-bride-and-groom-process. I really love me a good e-sesh. I went back and forth with Zeke and Courtney via text, email and phone calls as we worked out the details of their big day. We decided to shoot their engagement session in Columbus since their fall wedding would take place in their hometown of Chardon, Ohio. I gave them the option…sunset or sunrise. Most couples choose sunset. It’s easier. You don’t have to get up at 5:00am to do your hair. Buuuuuuut, when Courtney told me they wanted to do a sunrise session I was elated. Because truth be told…I prefer sunrise sessions. They are different! The light is to DIE FOR. The streets are EMPTY. And these two…oh! These two!! They looked freaking fannnnntastic at 7:00 on a Sunday morning.
Here are my favorites from our sunrise session and see why it’s totally worth it for you to get up at the crack of dawn on a Sunday morning. 😉
The best part about our morning together was how you two made each other laugh. It was adorable. Zeke, you have the best smile! I can’t wait for the wedding!
Courtney, you will be the MOST stunning bride. Serious…can’t. Wait.
And I want your hair. (Courtney’s hair. Zeke, I like your hair…but…you know.) 😉
This is my fave and won out as your sneak peek!! That sunrise light….yummmmm!
Buuuuut…this one was a super, super close second. I absolutely, LOVE this one too. You guys look so content and happy.
And again…laughing! You two were naturals in front of my camera. Model material, I tell ya. They were also really brave to sit on this ledge. I have a serious aversion to bugs. It’s gotten worse with age. There were all these Rolly Pollys (what did you guys call them? Pill bugs?) and tough Courtney just brushed them aside and said “we’re fine.” I was in awe of her. She’s my hero.
Congratulations on your engagement and I can NOT wait for your wedding this September!! You are a gorgeous couple both inside and out and I feel so honored that you chose me to help you remember your big day for the rest of your lives. We’ll have a blast!! xoxox
