Jen and Mike's Sweet Sunflower Engagement Session, Cleveland Wedding Photographer

Jen and Mike caught up with me at Maria's Field of Hope, the  Prayers From Maria Sunflower field. We got in a quick little shoot about a week before they got married. Did I mention how much I love engagement shoots?  I was able to get a great feel of how Jen and Mike hang out together. I could see how happy and in love they are. After the shoot, I knew Jen had a great laugh, and the perfect smile.  My favorite part of an engagement  shoot? I get to know the bride and groom personally, and I then I'm that much more excited for my new pals on their wedding day !

Jen adores sunflowers, and we found  the perfect spot. The Prayers From Maria Organization plants a beautiful field of sunflowers every year in Avon, Ohio. People come from miles around to soak in its beauty and learn about children's glioma cancers. The field is such a beautiful tribute, you can learn more about it here.

When we arrived for the shoot, the sunflowers were almost out, but not quite. Jen and Mike were so easy going, that it really didn't matter. Fun fact, they were in full bloom the next day. Thanks North East Ohio!  Make sure to see the Sneak Peek of their wedding at the end of the blog, and... yes, they had TONS  of sunflowers at their wedding.  To quote Jen - " Sunflowers just make me happy "
