Ashley & Chris Engagement Session | Salem, OH | Salem, OH Engagement Photography

We love photographing engagement sessions for so many reasons. They’re fun. They’re laid back. We have the time to be creative. A couple that wants engagement photos is a special kind of couple because they truly want to celebrate every event in their life as a couple. Being engaged is amazing. There’s so much possibility; you’re planning your life together- your happily ever after- your future. It’s hopeful, joyful, and exciting. Photos taken during engagement sessions should reflect all of those emotions. Ashley’s and Chris’ session was all of that because these two are adorable together. They share one another’s interests and support each other through everything.

Salem, OH Wedding PhotographyI know you’d love to hear how Chris proposed. 😉
Salem, OH Wedding PhotographyHe hunts and has cameras set up in the woods near his tree stands to monitor deer activity nearby. One evening around sunset, he asked Ashley to walk back to one of his tree stands with him to get the tape from the camera so he could watch it. She, being the country girl she is, did not bat an eye at that request and went trudging back through the fields to the forest with Chris. When they arrived to a beautiful spot on the hill and the sun was setting, he asked Ashley to be his wife. 🙂 That spot was very near to the spot where we took these photos.

They are just too cute together!

Also, thanks for introducing me to the taste of fresh-off-the-plant soybeans, Chris. That was fun. 🙂 We cannot wait to photograph your June 2013 wedding!
