As I arrived to the Toledo Botanical Gardens for Shannon and Alex’s engagement photos, I was (pleasantly) surprised by a thick fog throughout the gardens. Fog is a Toledo thing… apparently we used to be or perhaps still are, a swamp land? Not being a native Toledoan the first time I saw a FOG DELAY for school kids, I was like: You have to be kidding me?! So having said all that, I’ve never really photographed a portrait session in fog. It was romantic and dreamy.

Shannon and Alex arrived and it fit their vibe perfectly. The pair has this quiet, romantic aura around them. Alex was doting on Shannon who was a bit nervous and he put her nerves at ease. I love the look and feeling of this season. Soft and lovely.

Only about 5 weeks until they tie the knot… on a TUESDAY! How amazing is that! Can I get more midweek weddings?!
