Prepare to swoon… Madison and Dan’s engagement at Inniswood Gardens Metropark is going to give you all the feels. From the soft golden-y light to the way Madison’s eyes pop right off the screen, this session looks like MAGIC.
I’m not sure what it is about Madison and Dan that makes me adore them so much. Maybe it’s because they love coffee as much as I do. Maybe it’s because they hired me in 15 minutes flat (no joke!). Maybe it’s because the connection between them is so easy and effortless. Whatever it is, I’m SO grateful they trust me to tell their story well. It’s the trust, shared love of an aesthetic, and friendship that makes a portrait gold. You need connection. Photographing people is all about connection.
As we made our way around my favorite Columbus Park, we chatted about everything from siblings to favorite local bars and coffeeshops. I even learned Dan has to hold Madison’s hand a certain way to feel comfortable. By the end, I forgot we strangers just 90 minutes ago. What a powerful thing!
Madison & Dan – Thank you for inviting me in to celebrate this really beautiful and exciting season of your lives. I’m thrilled to serve you and honor the relationship you’re building. It really is a blessing to know you! In no time we’ll be at Combustion Brewery, documenting your vows, your bride & groom snuggles, and your just married kisses! Congratulations, friends!! – Kate
