Vanessa and Steven | Fall Engagement at Cox Arboretum

Nov 18, 2019

November might just be my new favorite time of the year to take pictures! Although I probably say that every season! 😉 Seriously, though, the leaves that hold on to the very end of fall put on quite a show, and the crisp chill in the air means you’re not sweating to death during your session – and bonus reasons to hug and snuggle tight! Even the light this time of year seems extra magical, especially when you combine it with a swishy sheer skirt like Vanessa’s – I am dying over the dreamy light!!

Vanessa and Steven rocked their Engagement Session at Cox Arboretum! They had their first date here back in July, so it was the perfect spot to celebrate their upcoming marriage! We had so much fun twirling down the pathways, spotting fish in the ponds, and chasing the light through the park. Vanessa and Steven met online when they realized they had a mutual friend and quickly bonded over their love for books and Japanese culture and food. Vanessa even works in a library, and I can’t wait to see how they bring this Beauty and the Beast inspired fairy tale into their wedding next month! You won’t want to miss those pictures! For now though, enjoy their Engagement pictures at Cox Arboretum and remind me to schedule more November sessions next year!
