What do you do when you have the opportunity to photograph one of the sweetest couples on the planet? You jump up and down and cheer, of course! Tom + Sophie are so much fun, and when Sophie approached me and asked if I would create their engagement photos for them, I was beyond thrilled. You see, I’ve known Sophie since she was young; her sister and I played softball together, and I remember Sophie being at nearly everything we did. And, as I watched her head off to play softball at Ohio State (Go Buckeyes!), travel, and become an incredible human, I knew someone special would steal her heart. Enter Tom, who has so clearly done just that! So, when I saw that Sophie was engaged, I prayed I’d get a chance to meet the guy who she’d found to adventure with, and I’m so lucky to have been able to have done that this past weekend!

Sophie + Tom are hilarious, adventurous, and a ridiculous amount of fun to hang with. From the start of their session to the end, they were champs — we were out in true Ohio autumn weather, and Sophie braved it with a gorgeous sun dress for the second half of the session. You are truly a rockstar, woman! We wandered Eastwood Metro Park from front to back, finding new spots to get creative, and their flirtatious spirits shone through in the gorgeous autumn light!

Congratulations, you two, and I know your New Years Eve wedding is going to be a blast! I can’t wait to capture more of your adventures, and party with you again!

 It was so much fun shooting Tom and Sophie’s engagement session in Eastwood Metro Park. Sophie’s simple floral dress complimented the natural landscape, especially in this Brenizer Method shot on the water. Dayton Ohio is full of beautiful natural landscapes and hidden gems to shoot in like Wegerzyn Garden or Oakes Quarry Park. At Studio 22 we love to go explore and find unique locations that provide a gorgeous background to showcase you as a couple.

 Fall photos are some of our favourites at Studio 22. The golden light, the autumn colours and the fall sweaters make for perfect and intimate wedding and engagement photos. Here in Ohio we have so many wonderful outdoor engagement spots to choose from like Ault Park or Devou Park in Cincinnati. Fall weather is also perfect for cuddling close in those tall grasses, which Sophie and Tom were experts at!

 Megan at Studio 22 loves getting to know her couples, not just taking their wedding photos. Sophie and Tom are no different. In prepping for and shooting their Dayton engagement session Megan loved getting closer to Sophie. She heard all about her studies at Ohio State University (Go Buckeyes), as well as her job as a NICU nurse. This girl has the beauty, brains and heart!

 Studio 22 is always looking for fun and different places to take engagement photos. It doesn’t have to be a field or forest to make for a beautiful portrait! Check out Tom and Sophie in this storm drain on our adventures through Eastwood Metro Park in Dayton, Ohio!

 When choosing outfits for engagement photos it is always important to go simple. Fall in Ohio is the perfect time because those solid knit sweaters are comfortable, stylish, and all the rage. Sophie and Tom chose the perfect combination of outfits for our outdoor adventure!

 Studio 22 Photography loves to take the places in your own community like Eastwood Metro Park in Dayton, or the Ohio State University campus and make it into the perfect backdrop for your engagement session. Megan is ready to travel to any destination to capture your life in meaningful portraits. It can be on an outdoorsy adventure in golden hour, or a urban stroll. She can find beauty in all locations!

 Although Megan enjoys scouting out a rough location, she loves to wander with her couples to find little photography gems. This creek with the perfect rocks to sit on is one example of an unexpected spot that works perfectly for a wedding or engagement photo. All over Ohio, from Cincinnati to Dayton and Columbus there are thousands of hidden spots she is ready to discover with her couples.

 For those of you who are not nature lovers, have no fear because your wedding and engagement photos should represent you! Studio 22 loves to take photographs in all kinds of locations. Industrial and urban sites can provide for really fun settings and make for photos that no one else has. Megan at Studio 22 has all the tools needed to make any location look and feel spectacular in order to showcase your personality!
