Lakeside Prairie Oaks Metro park engagement session | Wedding and Engagement Photographers Columbus

Danielle + Donald's lakeside Prairie Oaks Metro park engagement session was just what our creative hearts were looking for. When we booked this session, we were excited to go to a new park that we hadn't photographed at before. We went a little early so we could scope out the best spots, and I'm so glad we did, because we ended up finding this system of lakes that ended up being PERFECT. You'll see what we mean when you scroll down.

We love spending this time with our couples, not only because they get beautiful images for themselves, or because we get to show them all the posing they can expect on their wedding day, although that is a great perk! It's mostly because we get to spend an hour with them getting to hear their stories and get caught up on their wedding plans. We also love to get to see how our couples interact together. It's a great time to see if you like to snuggle, giggle, or be more serious. For these two we got a little mix of everything. We started in a more casual relaxed outfit with some laughter and silliness while we wandered to a few key spots in the park. Then they changed into a more dressy outfit, which they said was "for their parents", but we could definitely see their personalities pop out once they changed into these clothes. Once they were into the second outfit, we got into more snuggly posing and kissing. These are our favorites!

I knew that I wanted to finish up the session at the lake for two reasons, one- it was pretty crowded when we arrived, but I thought some people would leave, and I was right. Also, we didn't want to much light reflecting off the water. Not to mention, that sunset was to die for. I was so excited when we wrapped up that I wanted to show them the entire session on the back of the camera, but I didn't.

Danielle + Donald we hope you love these photos and want to show them off to all of your friends and family. We can't wait for your upcoming wedding- it will be here before we know it!!
