Mary + Levi met through the young adult group at their church, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, which is the church they’ll be getting married at next October! They got engaged this past summer on the Fourth of July! I asked Mary the story and this is what she said… 

“My favorite place in the world is my parents’ lake house on Lake Mohawk (middle of nowhere NE Ohio). Levi proposed there on the 4th of July in front of both of our families! We got to the lake in the morning, he proposed on the dock, and then our families pulled up to the dock on the pontoon with signs to congratulate us. It was perfect!” 

How sweet is that? For their engagement session we met up at the Coxhall Gardens in Carmel to begin! We then headed over to Levi’s parents’ house to take a few photos on their property… why? … because it’s beautiful! They have 4-5 acres of land and it was so fun to walk around and capture a few photos of these lovebirds there! After that we went over to West Park for sunset! I just love the lighting in all of those photos! My favorite photos are from when we were on the boardwalk. Mary + Levi were so adorable while twirling, dancing, and making each other laugh the whole time! I can’t wait for you to check these out! 

Mary + Levi, I’m so glad you reached out to me about capturing your love story! Thank you for trusting me to do it! You guys are such a warm, kind, and fun couple to be around and I feel honored to be your photographer! I can’t wait to do this all over again next year on the big day!!!
