It is always extra special to photograph your friends during their big milestones. I met Ashley (and therefore John, as well because they come as a set, of course) in a small group at church, and we bonded over our shared name! Fast forward a few years later, they beasted it at grad school in Pittsburgh, moved back to Ohio in the Columbus area, and are getting married next year at The Gathering Place at Darlington Lake!! We debated different possible locations for their engagement photos, with Ashley’s one stipulation being 100% FALL, and we settled on Zoar, OH, which was absolutely perfect. Zoar is a historic village in Tuscarawas County. If you’ve never been, you need to check it out, especially if you like history and learning. The historic homes and buildings have so much charm and made for the perfect fall photo backdrop. Ashley and John, I’m so glad to know you and be your friend, and I hope that these photos make you feel so very special.
