Wedding week is here for these two!!! I am so excited to spend this Saturday with this sweet couple. Last fall we explored Grand Rapids, Ohio together! We started out downtown and then hopped out to this place I had been wanting to try out. Unfortunately the river was SUPER high and only gave us a tiny little piece of land but we made it work! Happy wedding eve eve you two <3 See you soon!
In just under a month I will get to spend the day with these two as they promise to spend the rest of their lives together!! In June Justin and Lauren took a little trip with me up to Marblehead Lighthouse State Park to explore and take some photos. It was a bit of a drive but 1000% worth it. This park is a place that Lauren spent time at during her childhood and I love nothing more than doing engagement sessions at places that are special to my clients. We could not have asked for a better day!
The day before Halloween these two will tie the knot! I met up with this adorable couple while the spring trees were still in bloom. It was crazy windy but they rolled with it and rocked their session. I loved that they incorporated Tyler's firefighting into a few of our downtown photos. These two are so sweet and I can't wait for their big day coming up soon!
No, you aren't crazy... yes, you are seeing spring trees lol. I've been sitting on this couple's blog for a minute [or 10] Abby + Will are the SWEETEST! My Momma [aka my second shooter] and I drove up to meet these two at Wildwood Park in Toledo. I am such a fan of the Manor house, garden, and grounds so it was a quick "YES" when they asked if we could go to that location. The redbuds were perfectly in bloom and these two were all smiles and heart eyes. I am so excited to be joining them at another one of my favorite places, Nazareth Hall, for their ceremony right in the peak of fall color!!!
Hey friends... we are just a few weeks out from things getting CRAZY around here! Fall is typically the busiest time of year for photographers...but this year for me a little more so than normal! I will be at 7 weddings in 6 weeks followed by an 8th wedding after a week break! SOOOO I thought it is time to spam you guys with a few of the engagement sessions we took of these beautiful people I'll be spending my fall with <3 First up is Haylee + Wes. They will be getting married at the new + gorgeous venue Little Creek Barn. For their engagement session I took a little trip out to the family farm because farming is absolutely central to their careers, relationship, and how they actually met! Wes taught me the difference between straw and hay [total town girl here]. We had a sweet little visit from their fur babies and then danced under the gorgeous sunset! Isn't Haylee's dress to DIE for.... OMG I was soooo excited when I saw her in that thing [insert all the heart eyes]
You guys... I swear I just photographed her senior pictures like yesterday!! When Jenna reach out to me about photographing her wedding I was SO excited! Like, I actually don't take July weddings anymore due to a crazy summer schedule, but I just knew I had to make an exception for these two 💕 In exactly one month I get the honor of photographing one of the biggest days of their lives and I am stoked! Thanks for choosing me you two! 😘
How can I be photographing this gorgeous woman's engagement session and wedding coming up??? It feels like I just did her senior portraits yesterday! This coming year I actually get to photograph 3 weddings of my past seniors and I can't believe it! Time really does fly.
I met up with Ashley and Jonathon in downtown Van Wert before hopping out to a sunflower field where we captured the sky turning a crazy dark blue before our eyes as a massive derecho approached. It was so cool but I definitely felt like I had been dropped straight into the movie Twister as I pushed us to the very last second of shooting! Right as I hopped in my car and closed the door the first gusts of wind carrying a dust wall hit and rocked our cars...whew!! These two are so sweet and fun, I can't wait for their big day at the gorgeous SoSerene venue!
Who has 2 thumbs and has been terrible at blogging ... it's me... I have 2 thumb and have definitely been terrible at blogging 😬... Caitlyn + Wesley are so sweet and are going to be one of my 2021 bridal couples! For their session we visited my hometown. It was a little rainy at the start of their session but that didn't bother them one bit!
In exactly 2 months I will be joining this exceptionally sweet couple at their Crimson Lane wedding!!! These two.... oh man... what a joy to photograph! Madison will be my first bride that is ALSO a photographer 🤍 I didn't know what to expect going into their engagement session knowing this fact... I mean no pressure right?! HAHA any pressure felt, melted away 2.5 seconds into photographing them. They are natural cuddlers and posers and made my job so incredibly easy. I know their day is going to be exceptionally beautiful and just as easy and full of love as this engagement session was!
Oh I just loved Amber's dress 😍 These two were so incredibly easy and sweet when I met up with them a few months ago for their engagement session (yes, they got their pictures right away... I'm just a little slow on the blogging end 😬) We are only a few weeks out from their wedding and I am so EXCITED!!
I get the honor of photographing this sweet couple's wedding this fall and I am so excited! We met up earlier this spring for their engagement session and it was an absolute joy getting to know them as we explored their old college campus.
I am soo guilty of hitting the end of the fall craziness and then hibernating on all social media platforms 🙈 I promise you these two beautiful people had their images ages ago, but I'm just getting around to showing them off! Natalya + Mark are another of my sweet 2020 wedding couples and I am so excited for their Toledo Botanical Garden wedding this year! They were so sweet to work with and I know their day is going to be stunning!
You guyyyyys 🥰🥰 this session!!!! First, this couple is incredibly sweet. Second they are so cute, combine that with one of my favorite places to shoot...PERFECTION. I cannot wait to photograph these two on their wedding day this coming year!
