Jackie and Andrew became an official MWP couple only a few weeks ago and we wanted to do their engagement session as soon as possible.  When Jackie mentioned that she has spent most of her summers on Lake Erie in the Catawba Island area since she was a child and that it is now a special place to her and Andrew as a couple, I blurted out: I’ll do your engagement photos there!!!

I think they were a little surprised until I pointed to the wall art from a 2015 Maui engagement session… I’ll go wherever!

I love Toledo BUT it is SO nice when I can get out of the general area for a photo session.

We started at this beachy area that I didn’t know existed because, shocker, it’s a private beach!  Love anything that says private property!  We then drove up to the Catawba Island Cliffs and met up with her parents who had the boat waiting around the corner.

By the time we hopped on the boat, Lake Erie was in a mood and didn’t exactly give us the beautiful sunset that we had imagined when scheduling a late afternoon session.  I’m just happy we didn’t have the rain & thunder that I drove through on the way back to Toledo!

Take a peek at Jackie & Andrew’s dreamy Catawba Island/Gem Beach engagement photos.  The light was so beautiful, some of the photos look like I cut and paste them in to the scene…  I promise, I didn’t 😉
