our story: leita thompson engagement session
As Columbus-based wedding photographers, we have the joy of being very close to Atlanta and thus having the opportunity to photograph there often. In the fall we got to meet this sweet couple, Anna and Sean. As busy as they are with work, traveling the world together, and spending time with friends, they managed to squeeze us in on a chilly fall afternoon. From there it was an instant connection with their love for traveling and each other! This couple simply gets each other. They are so comfortable together and are so evidently best friends.
They met in 2007 at the steel manufacturing plant they were both working at. It was love after Sean, who was the company’s softball captain, approached Anna to tell her of her new position on the team (thanks to the lack of women at the company ;). Thankfully Anna obliged because they are a making history together now! Their proposal was super dreamy, when they planned a vacation to Punta Cana and Sean’s plan was to propose there. Unfortunately, the ring didn’t arrive in time and so after a few months of hiding it around the apartment in hopes Anna wouldn’t find it – she was able to join him on a business trip out to Omaha where he proposed. Although it was not gorgeous Punta Cana weather, rather only 5 degrees, it was none-the-less exactly what Anna wanted, to be his wife!
the location: Leita Thompson Memorial Park
Because they are adventurous at heart and love the great outdoors, we decided to do a Leita Thompson engagement session where we enjoyed peaks of sun rays, winter woods, and open fields. The soft color palette that Anna chose was absolutely lovely against the winter background – it just makes for timeless images!
