Ben & Katie

This is a fun one, guys.  Katie + Ben recently moved back to Columbus and are huge Buckeye fans.  Although they already had their engagement pics taken out in Arizona, I suggested that we do a mini e-session to get to know eachother a little better.  

This brings up a good point... engagement sessions are so important for so many reasons.  I know they aren't for everyone (and that's totally ok), but for those of you who are interested, here's the biggest value it can bring: quality time with your photographers for the big day.  It's so helpful when (especially if you've hired two photographers) to spend a little time in front of the camera, work out the kinks, and let us know any questions or concerns you have.  Sometimes being natural takes a little practice.  That sounds strange, but so often our clients are a little tense when we first start out.  The goal is to relax, have a fun time, and completely be yourselves.  Plus, engagement sessions are super casual and you get to wear jeans, or whatever else you like.  

Ok, end rant.  Back to Ben + Katie.  See below for their beautiful mini engagement, where we explored the snowy openness of the South Oval and roamed the Student Union where they first met.  And even more exciting, we get to kick off our wedding season with them later this month, also on campus!  This time we'll be in the stadium :)
