ALISIA + WARD | GERMAN VILLAGE ENGAGEMENT MINI, COLUMBUS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

HAPPY WEDDING DAY ALISIA + WARD!!! 

We had two lovely couples want winter sessions. So we scheduled them for mid-January, and that would be winter time for any other state except OHIO. The funniest part was it had just snowed five inches on Wednesday and we had our sessions planned for that Saturday. So while I was emailing both our couples I asked if they were both ready for some snowy sessions....I lied...they snow literally melted on Friday. ALL OF IT. But all in all, we got some great shots. 

Alisia and Ward recently moved to German Village (I LOVE GERMAN VILLAGE - which I'm well aware you all know by now), so they decided they wanted their session near their house. Which worked out really well because there was a little doggy park nearby.

Here's where we meet Chewy!!! Look at his face <3 He is seriously the sweetest pup. Daniel and I were also super excited because about a month before we had just seen the new Star Wars movie. Big Fans!! A mini Chewy. We love that they wanted to take a stroll around their neighborhood with their cute pup. It's totally what they do! 

We enjoy hanging out with our friends. Trying to explore things around town especially around the Short North. Taking walks, watching tv and movies. I am a graphic designer and do some design outside of my full time job.

PROPOSAL STORY

We were walking the dog thru Goodale Park after work and walked up the hill over looking the fountain and pond. He got down on one knee and that was it, I was so surprised and excited to start this new chapter.

When we first arrived Alisia pulled out these giant LOVE balloons!! How cool. So after we finished up with Chewy (and sent him home because it was a little chilly) we hit the streets. But seriously...we just walked a few blocks and found the coolest places to stop and take some photos. Bellow is a wall we loved and had to stop. Like I said before, German Village is seriously the bomb.

A cool wall...an empty alley...ivy covered pole. The epitome of an awesome shoot right here. They are the cutest with their giant LOVE balloons.

We walked to the end of the block and found a staircase where we could get a different angle for our photos. Here's where we were all getting a little cold so they pulled out a blanket for a cute cuddly addition to the shoot. I love when clients bring things to our shoots. 

ENGAGEMENT TIP: Bringing a blanket, a jacket, or anything like this can seriously change up your outfit/photos without having you actually change your cloths. This is a great idea if you don't want to change or have a shorter engagement session.

It's so much fun to see our couples fun and unique personalities! 

I am a little on the shy side and like to be in the background but can be outgoing once in a group I am comfortable with. He is very outgoing and likes to be center of attention.

I wouldn't even have guessed Alisia was shy! Looks like they bring out the very best in one another because they were so much fun to take photos of.
