Anne & Ben’s Romantic Wine-Sipping and S’mores-Roasting E-session
You guys know how much I love lifestyle e-sessions, especially when the couple’s sweet loving moments are as genuinely captured as this one! Anne and Ben both love a good glass of wine so they began their shoot in a cozy wine shop. Later in the day they roasted s’mores and cuddled by a bonfire which incidentally was a nod to how their relationship began.
We have Jaron Johns of Dei Gratia Photography to thank for the gorgeous photography. He’s here with a few more details about the couple and the day:
These two were super relaxed. We started out by getting a bottle of wine from the quaint little Wine+Market shop in downtown Lexington. They brought a small chalkboard and filled it with important dates of their relationship. From there, we went out to a private farm and started a bonfire because they had actually met for the first time at a bonfire. A bonfire, a bottle of wine and s’mores made for a great way to finish the evening.
About the couple, in Ben’s own words:
Anne is a dentist and works for the Cleveland Clinic during a one year residency. I just started working downtown for a lawfirm and accepted a lacrosse coaching position for a local high school. We love good wine, cooking together, and Notre Dame football.
How they met and what made the e-session truly their own:
Anne and I met at a friend’s bonfire. I instantly drew my attention to her and spent the rest of the evening hitting on and trying to impress her. Six days later, she agreed to go on our first date, and we have been together ever since. We spent our first five years together long distance, ranging from just under five hours apart to a little under two. It wasn’t until we got engaged when I moved down to be in Lexington with her. With her parents and her living there, Lexington was often where we met up and spent a lot of our time together. Jaron wanted to encompass that in our photoshoot, as well as the whole bonfire idea.
Thank you Jaron for sending this sweet e-session my way, and congratulations Anne and Ben! I wish you guys a happy forever. 🙂
