South River Vineyard Engagement Session - Emily & Buddy - Northeast Ohio Wedding Photographer

Emily & Buddy – South River Vineyard Engagement Session – Northeast Ohio Wedding Photographer

Emily inquired with me back in early summer, about being their wedding photographer. I was so excited that I was available on their date next summer! Not only are they a gorgeous couple, but their reception is going to be a new winery in town that hasn’t even opened yet! The thought of all of the weddings I could capture, right here in my home town, that gives me all the feels.

It seemed only fitting that we capture their engagement photos at another local winery, South River Vineyard . This winery is such a dream to photograph at! It has beautiful architecture, all built around an old church, and gorgeous acres of vineyards. I always try to plan engagement sessions around sunset, and boy did we get the most gorgeous sunset ever!! Pair all of that beauty with an amazing couple, and Emily’s to-die-for ring, and I would say it was one of my best engagement sessions ever.

Bri & Dwight's Engagement Session - Northeast Ohio Wedding Photographer

Coffee Shop & Winery Engagement Session – Bri & Dwight – Northeast Ohio Wedding Photographer

It was fate that I even got to meet Bri & Dwight. Their original photographer did not show up to their engagement session, even though the couple had driven four hours to have them taken in their hometown. This is when they reached out to me, and I am so glad they did!!

These two grew up in Northeast Ohio, and that is exactly where they wanted to have their engagement session. One of their favorite spots is an awesome coffee shop in Ashtabula Harbor, called Harbor Perk . They even had a coffee waiting for me when I arrived! Ashtabula Harbor is such an adorable area, we had to stroll down the street a little to capture it’s charm.

Just in time for sunset hour, we made it to Grand River Cellars in South Madison. This winery is so beautiful! Not only did we use their beautiful vineyard, but we even found fields of wildflowers. There was this little incident with a bug flying in to Dwight’s mouth, but don’t worry, I captured that hilarious moment too!
