I had been looking forward to this engagement session for quite a while. I had the pleasure of accompanying Missy when she visited her ceremony venue, the Tallmadge Historic Church, back in September and we had that instant click that lets me know the fates have once more found a perfect match of photog and couple. Since Corey had been out of town for work for quite a while we had to wait until just after Valentine’s Day for their engagement session. We hoped for snow…because it can be so pretty, but we were instead given an even greater gift, a winter’s day that’s warmth speaks of the promise of Spring and the renewal of life it brings. Which, since these two had recently been reunited, was rather perfect. And Corey was just as wonderful as Missy which just means I am twice as excited to spend a summer’s day celebrating their marriage vows to each other. C’mon, August!
Lauren and John chose one of my favorite spots for their wintry engagement session. Glamorgan Castle is a gorgeous and romantic backdrop, though it doesn’t do much to break winter’s icy winds. In order to keep Lauren from going full Popsicle we put the gas to the mat and fit an hour’s worth of love and laughter into about half that time. It is a special couple that can so quickly be comfortable in front of a camera; but I rather felt like any time Lauren and John were locking eyes, arms or lips I may as well have been on the Moon for all they noticed me.
