Oh my word Annie & Jake were SO MUCH FUN to shoot with. Ironically Jake, David and I all went to the same high school but Annie didn’t even know that when she originally sent me an inquiry! Jake recognized us when he saw my business name and so when we met for coffee it was a mini Madeira high school reunion.

We were laughing at this session from the start, especially when Jake stole the camera and started taking pictures of me and Dave 😂Jake is hilarious and outgoing and Annie is so sweet and absolutely beautiful. She complements Jake really well with her calm, steady presence and clearly feels at ease in his arms. She lights up around him for sure! 💛We seriously had the best time hanging out with them.

They met at University of Cincinnati through a mutual friend and Annie told me she knew Jake was the one when…

“On one of our first dates, Jake invited me to his parent's house for dinner. Unknown to me, his entire extended family was there to meet me, including his grandma. Jake's family is so important to him and I have been family to them since the first time we met.”

When talking about their vision for their wedding day, Annie also said:

“We want our special day to be full of laughs, love, happy tears, and excitement. We will have everyone that is important to us in the same place at the same time and we want to have the best party ever!”

Amen to that! Can’t wait to hang with these two again in September when we document their wedding day. Enjoy all of the smiles, laughs and golden hour glow below ✨
