The first time I had met Alyssa, she was a little girl running with her friends, while her brother played baseball. I got to know her a bit better when she was a senior in high school, when I was privileged to do her senior photo session. Alyssa then moved away from the area as she pursued college and a career, but I maintained a friendship with her mom, Lynette.


Then a few weeks ago, Lynette shared the great news that Alyssa was engaged. I knew immediately, I would love the chance to photograph her beautiful daughter again. And so on a cold day in December, we met up in the Short North in Columbus, Ohio and did Alyssa and Mackenzie's engagement photos.



It is hard to believe, the little girl who I once knew, is old enough to get married. But she is! And wow! Does she look like her mom!  I can't get over how much they look alike!

I also got to meet Alyssa's fiance Mackenzie for the first time. Mackenzie was a very laid back guy, who was a bit nervous about having his pictures taken. But as I continued  to work with him, he found his groove! The two were very natural together and although it was cold, it was a beautiful day for a photo shoot.



Alyssa and Mackenzie have set a date in August to get married in Columbus. They will be married at The Loft at the Dock 680 in downtown Columbus. I am beyond excited to shoot here for the first time. So completely different than the weddings back here in Putnam County and that is pretty exciting!
