Greg & Becca: An Ohio University Engagement

2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-3902_STOMP

I am so excited to share this awesome couple with you all today!!! Becca contacted me several months ago and asked if I would be willing to travel to Athens for some engagement photos at OU…ummmm, YES!!! I’d heard from friends about how beautiful the campus was, and I couldn’t WAIT to see for myself :) It was only fitting for their session to be in Athens, as she and Greg met and began dating during their time at OU.2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-3813_STOMP

Their excitement to be back on campus was palpable — it is so obvious from all of their stories that their years at OU were some of the best of their lives :) As a semi-recent grad myself, I related completely and was so glad that we were able to make the photos happen in Athens despite the distance!2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-3841_STOMP 2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-3852_STOMPI’ve said it before and I will say it again, but I absolutely LOVE how this job brings so many fun people into my life! Becca and Greg are such a great couple, and I feel so blessed to have been given the chance to capture some beautiful moments in their favorite places :)2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-3905_STOMP2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-3873_STOMP

Also, I’m slightly obsessed with the outfits Becca picked out for the shoot..nothing like a pop of color to make a photo fabulous!2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-3875_STOMPThe laughter & love these two share… :) 2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-3882_STOMP 2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-3892_STOMP2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-3902-2_STOMP2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-3904_STOMP
LOVE these next images — one of my favorite parts of shooting in a new location is finding neat spots & rollin’ with it…and luckily, Greg and Rebecca were all for the spontaneity! I LOVED this white wall against the brick and greenery…and I love this image even more :) :) 2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-3937_STOMP2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-3947_STOMP

After I had Greg chat up his fiance for some fun poses, we then did a bit of walking.I told Greg to pretend this was him sealin’ the deal…and this was his response :) *cue the Napoleon Dynamite “Yesssssss.”2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-3985_STOMPLove this image on the left!2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-4014_STOMP 2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-4027_STOMP 2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-4060_STOMP2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-4028_STOMP 2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-4049_STOMP 2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-4055_STOMP2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-4090_STOMP 2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-4102_STOMP 2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-4110_STOMPGreg suggested this neat location — because no session is complete without some fountain dancing :)2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-4116_STOMP 2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-4134_STOMPOr hill-running!2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-4173_STOMP 2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-4175_STOMPNext stop was this cute little park in the middle of campus FULL of iconic “OU” landmarks!2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-4212-2_STOMP 2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-4215_STOMP 2014.5.31 5 Greg and Rebecca Facebook Red-4218_STOMPGorgeous, Becca!!

Greg and Becca, thank you for such a fun morning this past weekend — I LOVED venturing around Athens with you both! But it was more than the beautiful campus and amazing weather (although those were great perks!) that made this session so perfect — it was you two! The ease you both have together, the way you laugh & tease each other, the love you share…you guys made my job easy, and it is so clear how perfect you are together! I can’t wait to see your wedding plans unfold — I know it will be a beautiful day :) (And not just because Becca is a crafting genius :P Check out her Etsy shop for some super fun prints & cards!!!)

Best wishes and all my love to you both!
