HEATHER + BRIAN | HOCKING HILLS STATE PARK ENGAGEMENT SESSION, OLD MANS CAVE - ROSE LAKE, COLUMBUS OHIO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS

HEATHER + BRIAN | OLD MANS CAVE AND ROSE LAKE  ENGAGEMENT SESSION, COLUMBUS OHIO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

The Brett Loves Elle Team had been prepping and talking about this engagement session for weeks. We decided to make a weekend of it and took the whole family to camp out at the Hocking Hills Campground near Old Mans Cave. BEST IDEA EVER!! We didn't think about the struggle of having no cell service, but it was great to be unplugged for a few days! We met Heather & Brian at the Campgrounds Main Store at the entrance to the campground. From there we made the outrageously short walk to the bottom of the waterfall for some AMAZING and COMPLETELY ALONE shots at the bottom. 

A WATERFALL ALL TO OURSELVES

LITERALLY, no one was there. We had to share the space maybe twice the whole time we were there. It was amazing! Turns out the rain was our friend on this day. I was absolutely in LOVE with Heather's outfit choices: her long flowy flower dress and short fitted maroon dress went perfectly with each location we decided to use them both! They just brought a sheet and we made a dressing room. 

Once we finished at Old Man's Cave we headed into the park, said a quick hello to our fam and headed to Rose Lake. Now for the fun part, yes, we did have to carry our canoe to the bottom of a very steep hill. BUT, it was totally worth it for yet again a completely empty lake. It was all our own and we used it all! Such a romantic and dreamy shoot. 


THE ENGAGEMENT STORY 

I WAS VERY SURPRISED! He told me we were going to the theater so I would dress nice and we were in my FAVORITE building in downtown Detroit, The Fisher Building. Instead of going to the play, he got on one knee and had a surprise photos taken and planned a romanitc night on the town :)

THEIR LOVE STORY

Heather and Brian met at a work golf outing in 2013, however, their love story actually began in March 1985 in Detroit, MI when Heather was born. Fourteen hours later, Brian was born in the same hospital where they shared the nursery together as newborns. They continued to grow up in neighboring cities and 29 years later they reunited at work. Brian was crushing hard for over a year until Heather invited him to her house warming party for their first hangout outside of work; it was immediate sparks and dancing into the morning hours. They have not gone a day without talking since. Heather’s beauty and intellect drove Brian toward her. Brian’s incredible mind and kind soul is what Heather fell head over heels for. They describe their relationship as easy from the start and felt 100% comfortable with each other. They have fun with each other every day and are truly best friends. They are still smitten with each other 3 years later and cannot wait for their wedding on Mackinac Island.

A LITTLE RAIN NEVER HURT ANYONE
