Trips to amusement parks have become a staple of the traditional American summer. Young children, teenagers, young adults, and families all enjoy visits to these parks. Whether it’s the rides, carnival fare, water features, or socializing, people visit theme parks in droves during the summer. The attractions provide hours of fun for most people, but for Ciarra and Shawn, my newest SDP couple, a trip to Holiday World (a Christmas themed amusement park) provided the foundation of their forever love story. They met, became friends, and fell in love, thanks to an amusement park. As I stated before, Holiday World is a Christmas themes park, so when do you think Shawn proposed?
Of course–CHRISTMAS MORNING!
The setting for Ciarra and Shawn’s engagement session was Louisville’s Whitehall Mansion and Gardens. The grounds are beautiful and immaculate, filled with numerous types of plants and flowers. It was such a peaceful place to visit and served as a nice, serene backdrop for my gorgeous engaged couple. We spent time in the gardens as well as at the main house on the property, which created unique looks for each set of photos. Although the location was quite remarkable, it was Ciarra and Shawn that made the photos perfect! They were charming in their denim and white and absolutely stunning in their formal blues!
Ciarra and Shawn, thank you for allowing me to capture your beauty and the love that you share on camera. You guys did an amazing job, and I can’t wait to capture more memories with you on your
