Mike & Kelly’s John Carroll Engagement

John Carroll is a beautiful campus with great grounds and traditional architecture perfect for not only engagement photos but weddings as well.  The Saint Francis Chapel is available to current students and alumni and a hall is also available for your wedding reception.  Ted went to school with Kelly and was happy to catch up with her and meet the 2 most important men in her life: Mike and their amazing dog Remus.

Mike has been serving in the military and he and Kelly spent most of their engagement apart, but Kelly remarked to me that Mike was well worth the wait.  You can tell how much they treasure each other by their expressions when they are together.  You’re always welcome to include your pets in your engagements session as they really do add that personal touch.  We do recommend you recruit a friend or family member to drive separately with your pet so that they’re able to take them home once their part of the portrait session is complete.  This allows us (and you) to focus on you for the remaining time.

Sessions with snow on the ground are lots of fun because not only is it pretty but it serves as a giant reflector.  Here it sets off Kelly’s lovely blue coat which complements her gorgeous hair color.  The effect is quite flattering!  And you can’t beat a frosty kiss with snow flakes swirling all around – definitely my favorite from this session.  A close second – the matching shoes.

Mike and Kelly said their I do’s this past New Year’s weekend so we wish the happy couple an amazing new year together.
