The Engagement: Emily and Jake | Dayton Ohio Nature Engagement Photographer

Sunday night might have been windy, dreary and cold, but these two didn’t let that stop them!! The joy and the laughter and the smile that came out of Emily and Jake overflowed and kept all of us warm.

Emily is the sister of a former (and simply amazing) All My Heart couple who got married 3 years ago. So when her name came through in my inbox and she told me it was her turn to tie the knot to the wonderful Jake, my heart leaped with excitement.¬†Emily and Jake have one of the most charming stories you’ll ever hear. The

Emily and Jake are so perfect together. From the interactions I have had them together, you can just tell that they complete each other.

These two found each other through work. And surely realized they were the perfect match for the other. So through job changes, family meetings, laughter, tears and planning they fell in love!!

And the engagement!!! Jake planned it for months AND months y’all!! He consulted family members to pick dates and locations. He shopped for and bought the engagement rings like 3 months before he popped the question. He planned the surprise so that both families could be there to celebrate since they both are so close to their families. He made sure the location was a place that she would love…(she picked it out without knowing MONTHS in advance!) He planned a secret dinner for after. That day of the proposal Jake made sure that she was dressed up and that her nails were done. He got Emily to the park while the rest of the family was waiting with signs. I mean serious fairy-tale stuff.

Oh and all these pictures, taken at the SAME park they got engaged at!! My heart could just burst.

I can’t wait for their wedding next June!!
