Kim + Chris | Columbus Ohio Engagement Photography | Columbus Ohio Engagement Portraits

Do I have a story on these two!! Chris and I were in kahoots for a big surprise outdoor proposal that I would photograph. Thennnn an INSANE – I’m talking straight CRAZY – round of storms rolled through completely throwing his outdoor proposal off. We (sadly) rescheduled for two weeks later. Then I get the sweetest text from Chris “hey Megan…this ring is burning a hole in my pocket. I think I’m going to do it tonight and then we’ll just do the engagement session on the date we have scheduled.” Orrrr something very close to that. So he did it that night and of course she said YES!! Then I FINALLY got to meet up with the happy and newly engaged couple with their precious pup Bella for a super fun engagement session. These are some of my faves from our session!

I. Love. This. One!!!

Quick outfit & location change and we were back at it.

Annnnd another fave!

CONGRATS GUYS!!! I adore you both and had SO MUCH FUN shooting with you! Give Bella a squeeze for me. xoxox



Columbus, Ohio

Together: 8.16.2013 // Engaged: 5.25.17 // Wedding: TBD

KIM // Hometown :: Sylvania, Ohio // Favorite Food :: frozen yogurt // Described by Chris :: big-hearted, beautiful, devoted, compassionate, selfless

CHRIS // Hometown :: Findlay, Ohio // Favorite Food :: Ribs // Described by Kim :: lovable, genuine, corky, handsome, driven

HOW THEY MET :: (As told by Kim) He supposedly first saw me at my best friends 21st birthday party but never approached me, I mentioned to one of my friends that I thought he was super cute. He finally came up to me at one of our favorite dive bars at UC Murphys. He must of heard that I thought he was cute because he was pretty confident 😉  After that first night he got my number and asked me on a proper date, and the rest is history.

HOW HE ASKED :: (As told by Chris) After several failed attempts (due to Mother Nature), I finally asked her to marry me in Dublin, Ohio at Hayden Falls. It was just us two and our favorite four legged friend. Thankfully she said yes and we spent the next weekend celebrating up at the lake with family.

2017 Danser Doll Seniors | Columbus Ohio Senior Photographer | Senior Photography

Two years ago, I started a Senior Model program with 4 girls. We named it the Danser Dolls. These girls would be my advocates for Megan Danser Senior Portraits in Columbus, Ohio. I was looking for kind, compassionate, supportive and beautiful-on-the-inside-and-out girls to represent my brand. I never DREAMED it would turn into what it is now!! We went from 4 girls to 14 and now for 2018 I have my largest group yet….NINETEEN girls! And the strength and character that these young ladies show me on a regular basis blows me away.

So ahhhh!!!! Who knew I’d be this emotional over another batch of Seniors graduating from my Danser Doll team?! (I know. Who am I kidding. I knew I’d be a mess too.) But these girls….ahhhh these girls! They have been AMAZING!! Fabulous leaders while setting a great example of what it means to be a Danser Doll. I’m proud of each and every single one of them. I know you girls are moving on to do GREAT things….but we will miss you fiercely here as a Danser Doll. #danserdollforever

CONGRATS girls!! Best wishes to you! And Hannah, we missed you! xoxo
