Joy. You can see it in their eyes. Meet Ella and Daniel. Two love birds who are getting married just a few short weeks. Their love is fresh, young, infectious and full of passion. And clearly, they feel complete when they’re together. Their Engagement Photography in the Woods was one of the most difficult to edit because they don’t really take a bad photo.
Ella was off on a path to play college volleyball before an injury occurred her senior year. Healing down time was spent at her parents restaurant where Daniel was starting his first head chef position at Ella’s parent’s restaurant “The Kitchen“. Neither of them were searching for love but friendship seemed to blossom. Daniel brought and taught Ella how to play the ukulele between breaks, because he knew she loved music and singing, and would need a new focus.
Their faith and common interest in food, music, and the outdoors brought them close. Daniel kept bringing Ella handmade pasta, muffins and more items to try all the while not knowing that as a little girl, Ella had always said that she would marry a chef to cook just for her.
Shortly after Christmas, Daniel proposed to Ella at a waterfall. He bought her a 1930’s diamond flower engagement ring from Foster’s Antique Store, owned by a long-time family friend.
The two are looking forward to always having their faith and each other, and plan to build a house in the woods shortly after the wedding.
The clearing shown above and below is the spot where they hope to build their house in the woods.
