Katie and Joshua had their gorgeous outdoor estate engagement session at the exquisite Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens in Akron Ohio this summer. With sanctuaries over their 70 acres and beautifully blooming flowers, trees and lagoons, the Stan Hywet was the perfect backdrop for this pair which was all captured beautifully by Sabrina Hall Photography.
Stan Hywet Gardens Engagement Session
About the Couple
“We met in middle school, I was Joshua’s first kiss! Our parents live down the street from each other and we would sit on our roofs and talk on the phone, trying to see each other. We stayed friends ever since but never dated seriously. Almost four years ago now he asked me to meet for lunch and we began dating a few months after.
Fast forward, 2.5 years and Joshua proposed to me at Chagrin Falls a few days before Christmas with my dream ring. It was beautiful with all the Christmas lights and it’s his favorite time of the year which makes it extra special.” – Katie
Engagement Session Advice
“Engagement pictures are a great time to trial your makeup look for the big day and get an idea of how it will picture professionally. Also, it helps to get a lot of practice posing for a camera, it can be awkward at first! Just enjoy and have fun with your s.o!” – Katie
