A Downtown Dayton Engagement Session At 2 Iconic Engagement Locations

On one of the windiest days of 2022 in Dayton, Ohio, I photographed this newly engaged couple at Deeds Point MetroPark and the Oregon District. As an engagement photographer in Dayton, I have photographed at both locations many times. Deeds Point is beautiful and overlooks downtown Dayton Ohio and the Great Miami Riverway. The five MetroParks fountains are at this park as is a Wright Brothers statue. Other than those things, this park is small. Currently, a new Dayton school is being built adjacent to the park, so it is pretty much inaccessible by car.

Our goal was to split our time between these two locations, but due to the wind, we spent more time in the historic Oregon District. This was the couple’s decision, and I agreed. Photographing this couple was super easy because they were really affectionate and smiled a lot. When I don’t have to pull the emotions out of my couples, it makes my job a little easier. I was extra impressed with these two since they were dealing with the cold and the wind. Great job you two!

This couple was one of the most fun couples I have photographed, and I wish I were also photographing their wedding. (They are getting married in Colorado). I also wish that we hadn’t had to deal with the wind. Unexpected situations happen, so I just have to roll with it. They were happy with these photos which is always good to hear. My favorite one is the black and white shot where they are almost kissing with the Riverscape fountains blurred in the background.
