One of my favorite things about engagement photography is the opportunity to spend a day with my couples. Something I always encourage my couples to do, is on the day of their engagement session, to truly spend the day with one another. Don't be stressing after work to meet up with me, carrying that days' burdens. Rather, spend the day connecting with each other, enjoying the season of life they're in, and I'll capture them celebrating one another. When that happens, fantastic images are the result. And that's precisely what happened on Friday with Adam + Tenia!
Adam + Tenia have a fire about them -- an innate ability to just "bring it," and from the moment I first spoke with Tenia, I knew they would be an absolute blast to hang with. Having connected with them through Tenia's good friend, Tera, who is another fantastic bride I have the honor to work with this summer, I knew we'd have a great time. Tenia + Adam lived up to my belief, because these two met me before the sun even began to rise, hiked out to one of my favorite places in Dayton, and they absolutely slayed their engagement session!
From before the sun came up, to nearly noon, we wandered some of my favorite locations for Dayton engagement photos, and in every location, Adam + Tenia brought their A game. From wandering out in the quarry, to going downtown, connecting with the fantastic Lost & Found Vintage Rentals for some studio time, and finishing with a stop at Ghostlight Coffee in downtown Dayton, every location they somehow got better and better. The time flew by, and I think we captured their day hanging out together and celebrating one another perfectly.
Adam + Tenia, I had such a blast wandering Dayton with you, and I seriously cannot wait for your wedding in Columbus this summer! You two are absolutely fantastic, and I have no doubt you're going to have a wonderful wedding!
