Theresa and Steve’s engagement

I love when a couple chooses a location for their engagement session that is very personal and meaningful to them. Theresa and Steve chose the perfect place for theirs: back where it all started. Two years ago to the day they had their first date at Martha’s Country Bakery in Astoria, and now in less than a month they’ll be married! What a great way to celebrate their anniversary. The folks at the bakery were so excited for them and extremely accommodating. Plus they have really great cupcakes, and I’m all about a shoot that involves sweets!

I was cracking up at Steve’s various expressions as Theresa kissed his cheek.

As soon as Theresa told me where they wanted to meet, I was envisioning a shot like this.

Ron and Lisa: around town

Ron and Lisa took me on a few tours of their neighboring towns. They were very cute!

We stopped into a fantastic cupcake shop, Main Street Cupcakes. If you’re ever near Hudson, Ohio, you must stop there! We arrived near their closing time when they only had three flavors remaining; apparently we should have gone for breakfast. Here are Ron and Lisa playing around as I enjoyed my treat.

Mmmm… yum! The plates and placemats they served them on were adorable!
