We are ALL about engagement sessions this month on the blog! Today I’m featuring Holly and Ryan. These two are friends of ours from church and I’m so excited to be sharing their fall engagement session at Onondaga Lake Park!
Holly and Ryan met while studying at Cedarville University. After graduating, they both found jobs in Syracuse and relocated to the Liverpool area, which is about the time that Caleb and I met them. Ryan proposed to Holly this summer and I actually remember exactly when I heard the news because we had just gotten back from our cruise and were in the Syracuse airport. As I was walking along the airport’s main level, who did I run into but Holly, with her brand new engagement ring on her finger! It was one of those Facebook meets real life moments!
Holly and Ryan really wanted their session to take place at Onondaga Lake Park since that is where they got engaged. It’s hard to imagine, but this was my very first session at Onondaga Lake!! The thing about lake locations is that if it’s a bright and sunny day, the reflection on the water can be SO bright and make for hazy or super bright photos. Thankfully, on the day of this session the sky was completely overcast! That meant no haze and a clear view across the lake!
Some of my favorite shots from this session are the ring shots. I’ve been working a lot on being more creative with how I style rings, and this session did not disappoint! There were so many beautiful fall leaves and I was able to get some of my favorite ring shots to date! I also loved how relaxed Ryan and Holly were together. They laughed and joked as we walked around the park together and it made the session feel so comfortable!
