I'm a lover of love who is addicted to Starbucks and goes through weekly phases of favorite foods. I'm a wifey to a firefighter and a dogmom to a grumpy Whippet. I love having lunch dates and dream of traveling the world.

Franklin Park Conservatory Engagement- Nate and Ellen


I loved spending my Monday evening with these two!

We started their session at Starbucks in Bexley. Did you know, that Starbucks used to be a bank? But what’s even more mind blowing: that was Nate’s second time ever at a Starbucks. His first time ever was when he and Ellen first met with me. I had no idea such people existed 🙂

After enjoying some coffee, we drove a few miles over to Franklin Park Conservatory. I was hoping there would be a little more color blooming, but the grounds were gorgeous nonetheless and we had a perfect golden hour sunset!

Nate and Ellen, thank you so much for letting me capture this special time! You guys were amazing to hang out with! So excited for the wedding!!! I’ll tone down the forehead touching and will be anxiously awaiting some new jokes 🙂
