Hey there, lovers! Arastasia with Arastasia Photography here 🙂 I’m thrilled to take you on a journey through Merissa and Joe’s heartwarming engagement session. From a spontaneous Goodwill treasure hunt…. to a magical sunset picnic. This session was all about capturing their nine-year journey towards love, laughter, and the excitement of becoming engaged. And this article will give you all the inspiration you need for your Cleveland engagement photos! So, grab your favorite cup of coffee or tea, and let’s dive into this wonderful tale.
Who would’ve thought that an engagement session could start with a Goodwill adventure? We kicked things off at our local Goodwill. We hi the aisles in search of unique elements for our date night session. From a charming picnic basket to champagne glasses. From a classic game of Battleship, and the perfect plates for their snacks. We surely filled our basket with treasures that would make their session one-of-a-kind.
We found our picnic necessities, and then headed to our next location for a dreamy sunset picnic. Nestled against a Cleveland-summer backdrop, Merissa and Joe indulged in a charcuterie board brimming with delicious cheeses, fresh fruits, decadent chocolates, and crispy crackers. (Fun fact – I’m pretty sure making charcuterie boards is my literal love language. I have so much fun creating them! Every time I have company, I am so excited to get creative with the snacks) With champagne in hand, they raised their glasses, toasting to their engagement and the nine beautiful years they’ve spent together.
I can’t even begin to describe the magic of the golden hour light. It turned Merissa and Joe into radiant beings, their love and joy shining through every moment. The warm summer sunset provided the perfect canvas for their story, as they giggled together, cuddled in the sunshine, and exchanged lovey-dovey glances. We ended our photo session by playing a friendly round of Battleship, packing up our picnic, and eagerly waiting to edit and see the beautiful photos we created!
