May 01 2018 Nelson & Jocie’s Marietta Ohio Engagement Pictures

Nelson and Jocie are friends of ours from the Parkersburg, WV and Ravenswood, WV areas. We were both honored and excited to be given the opportunity to capture their engagement photos and soon wedding photos. We decided the best backdrop for their style and personalities was the downtown area of Marietta, Ohio. Their historic Front Street area is super cool and filled with thriving life, friendliness, hospitality, and pride in their small town. Loads of local eateries, boutiques, coffee shops, antique shops, beautiful parks, and views of the river.

Despite the crazy tornado level winds blowing through Marietta, OH that day, we snagged some beautiful images that totally captured who this couple is- fun and in love. Our biggest hindrance wasn’t the wind, but our inability to stop laughing together long enough to get the “job” done. Somehow, despite our lack of maturity levels and slamming insults at each other, we grabbed some beautiful images of a truly wonderful, godly couple.

With each moment of the evening you could see that Nelson is the laughter in Jocie's life, and Jocie is the center of Nelson's love and devotion, only second to his Savior. It was easy to see they are off to a good start together at the beginning of their forever. This will be an engagement that transitions confidently into a marriage that is woven together with the love of Christ.

We’re finding so many areas we are loving to shoot in our new stomping grounds. Marietta is high up on the list for sure of where we love to not only work and shoot, but hang out as a family eating, sipping coffee, strolling Front Street, and hanging out by the river. We are thankful for the people and clients in our lives that trust us to capture the most precious moments of their lives they never want to forget.
