Oak Openings Toledo Engagement Session
Even the rain didn’t keep us from Kris and Lisa’s Oak Openings Toledo engagement session! We had a horrible forecast for the rain that day but noticed we might get lucky with a pocket of no rain. Turns out we were right!
Kris and Lisa chose Oak Opening for the beautiful tree lines. The couple took on a wonderful complimentary color scheme for their outfits with navy and cream – perfect for the natural hues surrounding them on the rainy day. Oak Openings’ website says, “Located between Whitehouse and Swanton, Oak Openings Preserve takes its name from the surrounding region, which is 23 times larger than the park itself. That’s something to consider when you realize that Oak Openings Preserve is about 5,000 acres. Pioneers trudging through a dense swamp called this area “Oak Openings.” Most of the park is an oak savanna ecosystem, characterized by alternating wetlands and vegetated dunes. The Nature Conservancy once named the sandy region one of the 200 “Last Great Places on Earth.” You can read more about Oak Openings on their website: located here for your convenience.
We love capturing those candid expressions when a couple laughs and has FUN! An engagement session should be fun! These big laughs help us see how a couple is together and shows who you really are!
We loved Lisa’s ring! So beautiful and classic. Gotta love a good bling shot!
Spring hasn’t quite budded yet and the forest provided lots of deep browns, oranges, and the rain clouds muted the sky in a neutral gray. Lisa and Kris were also great to work with and while Lisa was a bit shy in front of the camera. Michelle was able to quickly find ways to have some fun during the session. Congratulations Kris and Lisa, we can’t wait for your wedding day!
