Engaged | Erin & Eric | Lexington, OH

• Not to say that I haven’t had any fun engagement shoots before, but I have to say this couple wins for the most adventurous engagement session ever. We started out at a playground where Erin had no qualms about climbing onto anything. Then we went to a nearby park where Erin kicked off her shoes, rolled up her jeans and climbed through a creek to get to the spot she’d had in her mind. To finish off the engagement session we ended up at a nearby reservoir where the recent rains had left it muddy, muddy, muddy but they didn’t care and tromped through and even played leap frog! I’m still laughing about it!

• Erin & Eric were another couple that booked me without meeting me before so this was the first time I met them both. We hit it off immediately and had a great time (read above, who wouldn’t have a great time?!).

• This was our third try at scheduling this session – the first two were rained out/stormed out due to the crazy weather we’ve been having here in Ohio over the past few weeks. As they say though, the third time was a charm with gorgeous weather and beautiful light. I’m glad that it worked out this way because it was SUCH a fantastic day!

• Their engagement session was this past Friday – the same day as the Royal Wedding. SUCH a great date for an engagement session IMHO! I got up at 5AM to watch it live and was able to listen to the replay on my drive down to Lexington. NOTHING gets you into a more “engagement shoot-y” mood than listening to someone say “I will” – especially when that I will makes her a princess!

They didn’t stop climbing after the creek, they also climbed on top of this thing too.  I use “thing” because I have no idea what the technical term is for this gym!  Anyone know?
