Eric & Cortny | Engagement Photos Toledo Ohio
Eric and Cortny’s love story is one of serendipity! And their engagement photos were so fun to capture! They first met on a bus trip to an Ohio State game in Indiana. And neither had planned to go! It all happened last minute due to some open seats from cancellations. They started talking, sparks were flying, and numbers were exchanged. Plus, Ohio State won their game that night!
Nearly 7 years ago marks how long it’s been since their first date. When Eric picked Cortny up at her house, her mom commented to her dad how smitten the couple were with each other already. And now they are planning the rest of their lives together!
Eric is a commercial pilot. How perfect to fly out with them to Put-in-Bay for their engagement photos and then also get some with their airplane! It was so fun and Eric was a fantastic pilot!
How did he propose? It was just before Christmas and they thought it would be fun to get portraits together with Santa for their family. So they went to the mall, where Eric had everything planned. When Cortny sat on Santa’s lap, he asked her what she wanted for Christmas. Cortny nodded towards Eric and said, ‘He knows what I want’. Then she whispered in Santa’s ear that she wanted an engagement ring. He then pointed towards Eric and asked, “What do you think about that one?” Eric was down on one knee holding a beautiful diamond ring. Her reaction was priceless and the photographer captured it all! Of course, she said yes!
We can’t wait for their Catawba Island wedding this fall!
