It is so special for us when we get to photograph our friends and share the story of their love. Alyssa & Jake are two of the most down to earth people we know, Alyssa LOVES to laugh and Jake can make her laugh 🙂 They are planning a winter wonderland wedding for December so spring was the perfect time to cruise up north to beautiful William O’Brien State Park for their engagement session. Lucky for all of us we had a beautiful day and the pups enjoyed it too!
Jake & Alyssa knew each other throughout college through mutual friends, intramural soccer and a business organization. It wasn’t until after they had both graduated that their love started to spark. Now, here we are, a couple years later, an addition to the family (Cody the pup :)) and these two lovebirds are engaged!
William O’Brien State Park is a truly beautiful place and if you ever have the chance, head on up! The drive is beautiful and once you are there, trails take you along the river for miles. Why did Alyssa & Jake choose William O’Brien State Park, well, it is actually where they went on their first date! Walking through the park brought back memories for these two and we had so much fun hearing about their journey together. We are so excited for Alyssa & Jake and can’t wait to celebrate in December!
