Nick and Liz met while playing World of Warcraft. He’s a middle school science teacher in Chicago. She’s a PhD student in Radiation Health Physics at OSU in Corvallis. Together, they make one heck of an awesome, unique, brilliant couple.

All you really need to know about this shoot is that yes, Jonathan does have a turquoise beard. Awesomeness.

“Approach cooking and love with equal abandon” – The Dalai Lama.

I saw this quote hanging in Jackie and Brian’s kitchen on a little blackboard, and realized it suited them perfectly. Of course they would have this hanging in their home.

“Brian and I love to cook together,” Jackie told me. “And we love wine… there is going to be a lot of wine at our wedding, haha.”

So, it only seemed natural that we start their Corvallis engagement session in their home, in their kitchen, with a little bit of wine and some ingredients for ginger snaps. It was so them. I love getting the chance to see people comfortable in their own environments.

After having some fun indoors, we really couldn’t stop ourselves from venturing outside to the park around the block. The skies were beautifully dramatic and the fall leaves looked incredible, as did Jackie and Brian, of course.

As the sun was going down, Jackie and Brian changed outfits one last time and brought out their friend Teddy for a few shots. He was quite enthusiastic!

I had a great time working with you Jackie and Brian! Can’t wait to shoot your wedding in California next spring! It’s going to be a blast!

It seems that OSU’s CONNECT week does more than just introduce students to college life.

Apparently it introduces them to to their future husbands and wives as well!

Yes, as cheesy as it might sound, Daniel and Lynnae actually connected during CONNECT.

In fact, they may or may not have met drunkenly at one of their first college parties… And they may or may not have had difficulity remembering each others names when they bumped into each other again the next day! But that didn’t stop them from reintroducing themselves and beginning what would turn into a beautiful relationship.

Call it fun, call it a small town, or even call it fate, but the two were made for each other. After being together through all their years at OSU, Lynnae and Daniel got engaged this summer, and can’t wait to tie the knot next August!

Because it’s where they met, and it’s where their relationship grew, we decided to shoot their engagement pictures at OSU’s gorgeous campus. Congrats you two! I had so much fun working with you!
