Nate + Ariel | Oakes Quarry Park | Dayton Art Institute | Ghostlight Coffee | Dayton Engagement Photography


When I first spoke with Ariel about her engagement photos, I was instantly excited to work with her; her fun spirit was immediately visible, and I could tell that we would have a blast together. So when we met up on a cool Saturday afternoon at Oakes Quarry Park, I wasn't surprised to find that she and Nate were perfect for each other, and were game for all kinds of fun! We roamed the quarry, enjoyed chatting, and I found out that Nate and I actually graduated together, but never knew! Small world, indeed.

After the quarry, we headed to the Dayton Art Institute and the Dayton Masonic Center, which was a blast. Nate told me how he proposed to Ariel, and their plans for their destination wedding in Hawaii. Can I just say how awesome it sounds? They are going to have a blast!

As we finished up, we stopped into Ghostlight Coffee to warm up, and I snapped a few photos to finish their amazing session. These two are so much fun, and I'm so honored to have the opportunity to capture their engagement photos. Congratulations you two, and May 7th will be here quicker than you can imagine!
