I met up with Katie and Dustin a few days back to shoot some engagement pics. They are getting married next summer. Engagement shoots are a great way for me as a photographer to get to know a couple before the wedding day as well as a great way to get shots that we often can't get during a wedding (like shot of the bride sitting on the a rock etc.). This shoot was no exception. Katie and Dustin met at Ashland where Dustin played football. I also discovered Dustin and his family are jewelers (so I tried to hook them up with some extra sweet pics of Katie's ring - which was amazing). Katie just finished her first year of law school and she was able to share with me a bit of what was going on in her life that made the evening extra special. I can't wait till next year when I get to be there when they tie the knot. Good luck with all the planning guys!
Dustin almost slipped on the algae here and some how busted out his athletic skills and made the greatest recovery I have witnessed. Since he was safe - the shot was certainly worth it.
