From the moment we photographed Maddi + Mike’s downtown Columbus engagement session, we knew their relationship was something special. We promise, you would love these two as much as we do. They have hearts of gold and are beautiful inside and out. While we were on our initial video meeting, we discovered Mike was a huge Pittsburgh Penguins fan. (Note: As lifelong Red Wings fans, we do not encourage this. 😊 ) We also knew they were in the middle of a game in the Conference Finals. Despite the playoffs, Mike was so sweet and was genuinely interested in meeting us. We knew we loved them right away!
It is always so special to document our couples in a place they hold near to their hearts. Maddi + Mike’s session in downtown Columbus was no different. Our time with them was exactly how an engagement should be celebrated – with lots of laughs and an immeasurable amount of love. Maddi + Mike showed us the Main Street Bridge and German Village, and we quickly fell in love with the charm of Columbus. (If you have never been, we would highly recommend visiting!)
But, most memorably, Maddi + Mike asked if we could go to just one more place. It happened to be the spot of their first date… Dirty Franks Hot Dog Palace. (We promised you would love them!) Maddi slipped off her Louboutins, and they ended their sweet session feeding each other hot dogs on the sidewalk. This is one we’ll never forget.
Maddi + Mike – you two are absolute gems. We are so grateful you asked us to document your wedding, and we are even more grateful for your friendship. You’re getting married THIS weekend! We can’t wait!
