"The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them."
I met Jenn + Andy last week for their engagement session at the front of a little gravel road that took us back to this beautiful hidden lake in Wooster, Ohio. We spent the evening driving around on their golf cart, chatting, and finding all these beautiful spots hidden along the way. As we wrapped up the shoot, we were looking for that one final place that was going to reflect the last bit of golden sun hitting the water... and when we found it, my heart may have stopped. Everything was right. The Light. The contrast from the rocks on the shore. The reflection on the water. And these two. I could see them take that deep breath together and forget for a second I was there. This lake is a place they love; a place they share memories together. And what an honor, even for only one evening, to watch those memories unfold.
