We absolutely loved getting the opportunity to meet and photograph Josh and Lydia’s Erie Bayfront engagement photos! Our couple met in a Kmart aisle. Little did they know, that wasn’t the only aisle they would walk down together! The perfect couple paired with some gorgeous venues made for an incredible photoshoot.
In 2015, Josh showed up to his shift at Kmart hours early. He was just that dedicated to his coworkers! Or at least… one coworker in particular. Surprising Lydia while she worked, Josh asked her to lunch at Moe’s. Though they both found themselves too nervous to eat, their easy conversation and natural chemistry lead to future outings and becoming “official” on July 21.
From that moment on they were inseparable, by each other’s side through thick and thin. They both cite the other’s continuous support and patience as the deciding factor in identifying The One.
“Originally, I was going to propose on Valentine’s Day, but once I got the ring I couldn’t wait any longer,” Josh recalled. Though Josh suspected that Lydia was unsurprised by his proposal, his insistence that she close her eyes while he descended to one knee meant that she literally couldn’t “see” it coming.
Now happily engaged, the couple has lots to look forward to – kids down the line, lots of pets, and their September wedding!
Erie Bayfront Engagement Photos
MODERN TOOL SQUARE
We couldn’t resist photographing this perfect couple at one of our favorite stops! The Modern Tool Square in Erie provides many photo-ops, with beautiful architecture and mature trees. Streaming sunlight, classic brick, and plenty of fresh flowers were the ideal complement to the couple’s natural beauty.
THE ERIE BAYFRONT
Our other location was the gorgeous Erie Bayfront. Surrounded by nature, the sparkling water made this historic port a can’t-miss place to capture Josh and Lydia. With a marina, private venues, and a relaxing community all around, the Bayfront is a photographer’s dream location! We were so happy to return, and were so pleased with the pictures we got for the couple.
It was an absolute privilege to get to know Josh and Lydia and help them celebrate the lead-up to their big day. We are also eagerly anticipating photographing their wedding at Port Farms! It is sure to be a stunning event.
