Carli & Kobe | Amanda Lauren Collective

I am excited to share this Fall Engagement at Inniswood Gardens. Carli and Kobe were such a joy to work with. We planned for their session in November and the day turned out to be rather nice. As you know the weather in Ohio, in November can be pretty finicky. This day turned out to be a brilliant autumn day, warm with only a few clouds in the sky. While a lot of the trees had lost their leaves from a storm that rolled through a few days prior. There were still plenty that had those vibrant fall colors you look for and expect when choosing to have your engagement session in the Fall.

Carli and Kobe plan to get married in July in their hometown of Springfield. They have been friends since they were in the 5th grade and started dating their Junior year of High School. Carli had described Kobe as outgoing with a great sense of humor. He had her laughing the whole session, which always makes my job so much easier. I love when couples feel comfortable enough with me to really let their personalities shine. This really allowed the love and joy they both have for each other to really come out in their images. I can not wait for their wedding day to come and to spend more time with them.

Inniswood Metro Garden is becoming a popular go-to location for my couples. There are sooo many options for locations here. I seem to find new possibilities every time I come here. It’s great because you get such a variety throughout your session without having to change locations. I am sure after you spend a few minutes scrolling through my favorites from their day you will see why so many couples choose this location to document such a special time in their love story.

I am excited to share the images from Erin and Ryan’s engagement session at the Scioto Mile. We took these at the end of last summer. The day was absolutely perfect, sunny but not too warm.

When we were planning their engagement session Erin told me that one of the things she and Ryan like to do most is walking the parks surrounding Columbus. So it was a given that we would have to do their session in one. We decided on the Scioto Mile so that we could still get the park feel but also have some of the Columbus skyline. I love being able to make these types of sessions meaningful to the couple. So incorporating their interests is a must.

These two will be eloping in Big Sur in June. I can not wait to see pictures from their wedding day. I hope it goes off without a hitch for them! I hope you enjoy so of my favorites from their engagement at the Scioto Mile.

Sage & Todd | Amanda Lauren Couples

At the end of June, I had the pleasure of meeting Sage & Todd in Downtown Columbus for their engagement session in German Village. I had the best time getting to know them during our time together. They are both friendly, down to earth and so easy to talk to. We shared many laughs together. I love to keep sessions light-hearted and that is exactly what we captured throughout the evening. I can not wait to work with them again on their wedding day!

When talking with Sage to plan their session we decided on German Village. We started at Schiller Park, this park is quickly becoming one of my favorite parks to shoot at. It has beautiful landscaping and the surrounding streets have gorgeous brick streets. We spent the evening roaming around the surrounding neighborhood as we made our way to the cutest bookstore that Sage had spotted on a recent trip to Columbus. The Bookloft of German Village has the cutest garden area outside its doors.

Enjoy my favorites from this beautiful summer evening!

I was so thrilled when Jessica reached out to me to photograph their wedding this Summer. We met for coffee shortly after and I got to meet both Jessica, Ryan AND their baby Michael. They told me all about how Jessica and Ryan met when they were neighbors in 2016. Ryan asked Jessica to marry her while they were building their first house together. We talked about how excited they were for their wedding day and also for Michael to turn one! During our meeting they talked about how they wanted to include Michael in their engagement picture and because we was about to turn one we decided to turn their engagement session into a mini birthday session too! So we set a date for late March and then Covid struck. Due to all the lock downs that went in place we had to keep pushing the session back but finally we were able to start back up in May and we scheduled the session immediately. I adored working with this family and can not wait to photograph their big day this weekend! Take a minute to view the rest of their session at Glacier Ridge Park in Plain City, Ohio.2020-07-23_0019.jpg2020-07-23_0016.jpg2020-07-23_0015.jpg2020-07-23_0007.jpg2020-07-23_0001.jpg2020-07-23_0022.jpg2020-07-23_0013.jpg2020-07-23_0017.jpg2020-07-23_0021.jpg2020-07-23_0018.jpg2020-07-23_0002.jpg2020-07-23_0004.jpg2020-07-23_0003.jpg2020-07-23_0020.jpg2020-07-23_0008.jpg2020-07-23_0006.jpg2020-07-23_0009.jpg2020-07-23_0014.jpg2020-07-23_0011.jpg2020-07-23_0012.jpg2020-07-23_0027.jpg2020-07-23_0023.jpg2020-07-23_0026.jpg2020-07-23_0028.jpg2020-07-23_0024.jpg2020-07-23_0029.jpg2020-07-23_0030.jpg2020-07-23_0005.jpg2020-07-23_0025.jpg2020-07-23_0031.jpgColumbus Ohio Wedding Photographer
