In my 13 or so years of photographing weddings and engagements, I have never had a date wrong for a session. I’m sure it happens to some but my OCD calendar has been pretty good to me.
Last weekend, I happily took about an hour drive, past Findlay Ohio for Zara and Russ’ engagement session at her family homestead. I listened to my music at the volume that my kids do not permit me to listen to it at (the appropriate level) and had the windows down while I belted out my fav 90s alternative and 80s pop songs.

I pull in to Zara’s driveway to find a party happening… Balloons on the front porch posts, a few dozen cars parked in the drive and thought: This is weird. Why would they want to do their session with so many people around?!

Ummmm I totally had the wrong date. I felt bad because Zara felt bad that I had drove down there for nothing. I felt bad because I didn’t want them to think I would get their wedding date wrong, can you imagine?! So slightly embarrassing. They happily showed me around the property, which was nice as I was able to get some ideas for when I was back the next day. We joked that we would be wrapped early on Sunday because both Russ and myself had to see how Game of Thrones started after the previous week’s cliff hanger ending. (SO GOOD!)

Sunday was beautiful. These two are so cute together. Russ doesn’t take himself too seriously and is happy to be silly to make Zara laugh even if it means some apple juggling which is had not practiced at in quite some time 😉

They will be getting married June of 2018 at Toledo Country Club, June 30th to be exact. That’s the date I’ll be showing up. Note to self 😉
