Anderson Farms Golden Hour Engagement Session

You guys, this engagement session is seriously amazing! The lighting. The location. The couple. It’s killer.

I first met Nicole at American Eagle (where we both worked) a handful of years ago and we stayed Facebook friends. She told me about her boyfriend, Andrew, and how he was in the military. A couple of years ago, Andrew proposed and I was so excited for them! Nicole said that she’s been following my photography since we first worked together at AE and she told Andrew, “It has to be Steph!” And here we are, their wedding is just 2.5 WEEKS away!

Andrew & Nicole currently live and are getting married in the Cleveland area, but seeing as they met and started their relationship in Columbus, it was very important to them to have their engagement session photographed near Columbus. They’re also big Buckeye fans! When I first asked Nicole what she envisioned for their engagement session, she almost immediately said they wanted it to be in the country! And that is exactly where we went!

Anderson Farms is a beautiful wedding venue AND a fully operational farm that is home to pigs, sheep, chickens, and many other animals! Located in Granville, the Farm is about 40 minutes from Columbus, but lemme tell you. It’s well worth the drive. I can’t imagine a more perfect location for Nicole & Andrew’s engagement session! All three of us were incredibly impressed and beyond excited to explore the farm. The family that operates Anderson Farms, also owns Ray Ray’s Hog Pit. If you haven’t tried their delicious BBQ, you’re seriously missing out!

But seriously, guys. September 3rd is going to be a beautiful day. I cannot wait for their big day and you can absolutely guarantee that I’ll be sharing tons of photos with you guys here soon enough!
