I had arrived quite a bit early, coming from one session to the next. I the extra time to scout out the university, doing a quick lap around John Carroll. The weather was perfect – mostly sunny with just a few high, thin clouds. Before I knew it, time had come to locate Katie and Andy. I called to let them know I was ready, and then they came walking around the corner.
We chatted a bit as we walked around the campus. Katie reminded me that she and Andy met while attending John Carroll University. As we walked, she pointed out buildings. “I lived over there, and Andy lived there,” she said, pointing out two dorms. It seemed like they were both reminiscing a bit during the session. Andy even remarked that it had been years since they were on campus.
Their engagement story is a sweet one. Like so many engagement stories, it started with the best laid plans. Also like so many stories, the plans went a little awry. During the winter, they were both at Gevasi Vineyard when the perfect time came. Andy wanted to propose under the slowly falling snow. He certainly got snow, but maybe more than he expected. The snow was deep enough that moving through it was tough. Nonetheless, he found a nice spot to propose. While the weather way have been tough, what really matters is the results.
For their engagement session, I think we all agreed that warmer weather would be best. Below are just a few highlights to enjoy, all captured on film.
