Nicole and Will | Sunflower Engagement Session at Cox Arboretum

Oct 02, 2019

I have been looking forward to sharing this Engagement Session at Dayton’s Cox Arboretum! Nicole, Will, Emma, and Mia were so much fun – so many giggles and snuggles! Sunflowers are one of their favorite flowers, and I love that they brought a bunch of them to the session! The sunflowers gave such a fun pop of fall color and coordinated with the yellow wild goldenrod perfectly! We started the session with the whole family, and then the girls got to enjoy a treat with Grandma, while I got some extra time with Will and Nicole.

Will and Nicole met through Will’s sister when Nicole started working at a movie theater where Will’s sister also worked. The two ladies quickly became best friends, and when Nicole came along a family camping trip, Will and Nicole met!

While Will was doing some military training in Texas for a few weeks, Nicole decided to go visit him. Will surprised her with a gondola ride in Dallas – so romantic!! They were floating down the canal when Nicole spotted a bottle in the water. When she picked it up, she saw a note inside, which had a message from Will asking her to spend the rest of her life with him! Straight out of a movie, right?! She said yes, and there were lots of tears. They are so perfect together and make such a sweet family of four!

Will and Nicole – thank you for allowing me the privilege of capturing your little family! I am SO excited for your Fall Wedding next year!!
