Just after I parked and unloaded my gear, Torri pulled in and was ready to go, but there was a problem. “Lucas is running late, but he should be here in a moment,” Torri said. After a few minutes, another car pulled up and I asked if this was him. “No, you’ll know Lucas when you see him,” She said again. Curious, I asked for more details. For the next 10 minutes, we joked about Lucas’ choice of transport. I must say, it’s quite stylish. I’d love to have a van like his. But enough about cars.
We spent the afternoon wandering around downtown Cleveland for their engagement session. Sometimes a loose plan is the best plan. Instead of picking specific locations, we just picked a single place to start – Brown’s Stadium. From there, it was wanderlust. We just moved around as needed. We’d stop and I would shoot a couple rolls of film, and then we would move on. It was a nice, fun, and easy engagement session.
And I guess this approach was fitting for Torri and Lucas – they are nice, really fun, and easy to get along with. I really think their personality comes through in the photos below. Clearly they’re in love, but you can see the fun as well. It truly made for a relaxed session. To cap things off, we did visit one planned spot. The spot is so small, it really doesn’t have a name. It’s just a small patch of green beside the road with a great view of the city, but it’s special to Torri and Lucas. We finished the session with a few sunkissed portraits as the sun set over the lake. We also ended with an inside joke. Lucas and Torri and very close in height, so Lucas jumped on a set of books for a boost.
Below are a few favorites for everyone to enjoy.
I’m still giggling over the photo above with the books, and I’m still in awe of the last photo. Torri looks so smashingly gorgeous! That’s all for today. Shortly after the holidays, I will have more coming soon.
