Peninsula, Ohio Engagement Pictures

As you may know, Peninsula, Ohio, is one of my favorite locations for photography. Regardless of the time of year, it provides many distinct and striking backdrops. This photoshoot, however, was particularly special as Nick and Jen grew up in the Peninsula area, and graduated from Woodridge High School.

Their story began on the high school track team. Nick and Jen were flirting with each other towards the end of the season, when Nick asked her out on a date. Jen bet him that if he won the conference hurdle races, she would accept. With the extra incentive, Nick did just that. Something tells me Jen would have forgiven Nick even if he lost, but it was the start of long, beautiful commitment, which will culminate on their wedding day this summer.

Nick and Jen not only made a commitment to each other, but to their careers, with Nick being an attorney, and Jen recently graduating with her master’s in occupational therapy. Their love for one another just illuminates, but they know how to have fun instinctively. After Nick gave Jen a piggy back ride, Jen immediately wanted to return the favor (see below). Oh, I love my job, and am elated to work with them again on the biggest day of their life.
