Another 2023 engagement session in the books, and it was such a good one!! Not only did we have the initial blooms of spring, but we also had magical light and decently warm weather for early April! The combination of all of these little gifts provided a beautiful foundation to Emily and Joe's engagement portraits!
Emily and Joe came up to Steubenville to celebrate Easter weekend with their families from warm and sunny (and beautiful!) Charleston, SC. Of course spring there took off several weeks before ours did here in the Ohio valley, but I was really excited for them that we were able to get together on such a beautiful evening at such a meaningful place for both of them!
Although I’m not from this area originally, Franciscan University is such a wonder to me as a Catholic. It’s amazing to see and meet so many faithful young adults, who place their faith in God and tradition before so much else that is currently offered up by the secular world we live in. It’s such a breath of fresh air and a blessing to be able to experience it as a young wife and mom!
Emily and Joe both were students at Franciscan, but they did not begin to date until about eight months ago!! They have really wonderful families who sound so loving and supportive of them, and obviously a very strong community to be surrounded by on their wedding date later this summer.
These are just a few of my favorites from their engagement session, and I’m very excited to be able to capture their wedding day for them so soon!
Thanks for reading!!
