We love this classic Miami University engagement session.
So…how stunning are Diane’s eyes in these pictures!? Joel, you look good too. 🙂 So many images in here that look straight out of GQ, and it’s all about Diane and Joel. I’m beyond excited to share Diane and Joel’s Miami University engagement session with you! Photographers always have a bucket list of places they would like to shoot and being a Miami grad myself, shooting on the campus has always been on that list. Diane and Joel, both being grads themselves were all about an Oxford and Miami engagement session! For those who aren’t grads, Miami has some very important traditions. ‘Miami Mergers’, are a big deal; couples who meet at Miami and eventually marry. It’s tradition for those couples to kiss at midnight under the Upham Hall arch. We did visit Upham, however we didn’t hang around until midnight. You’re also not supposed to step on the school seal or it means you’ll fail your next exam. I’m not sure what they’re studying for, but Diane and Joel tried to avoid it nonetheless. And we of course had to visit ‘Fratican’ (many of the off campus houses have names), the house Joel was living in when he met Diane. That’s all for the history lesson…back to Diane’s eyes! With snow and cold everywhere already, it’s hard to believe this beautiful Fall day was just a couple weeks ago. But we took full advantage of the colors and made our way all around campus and of course uptown Oxford! So excited to be a part of their wedding day this coming fall! – Ben Elsass
