Matt & Sarah’s Chagrin Falls Engagement Session

Matt had it all planned out.  He had dinner reservations made, the ring in his pocket, and plans to surprise Sarah at the new home they were buying.  It fell apart a bit though when Sarah showed up at their new home in the middle of Matt’s schemes.  Matt didn’t let that bother him…he just came up with a new plan and when Sarah turned around, he was down on one knee.

I am excited to be a part of their wedding next summer.  A couple weekends ago we headed out to Chagrin Falls (where Matt grew up) and captured their engagement session.


Ben & Desiree’s Portage Lakes Engagement Session

Ben and Desiree met in their high school in gym class.  Having spent a little time with them, it seems like the perfect place for them to have met.  Both are athletes full of a strong competitive spirit.  Don’t let them fool you though…they may be competitive but with each other they are also tender.  They laugh (a lot) and just have fun together.

During college (and even for now) they had a long distance relationship but were together in the summers on the Portage Lakes.  That seemed like the perfect place for a meaningful engagement session.  We met a couple weekends ago on a cold Saturday afternoon.  Despite the cold, the session was beautiful.


Mini Golf Engagement Session at Wingfoot Lake Park

We wanted to capture Don & Jackie’s love of fun…so an engagement session at Wingfoot Lake’s Mini Golf Course seemed like the perfect location. They enjoy life and love amusement parks, wineries, theaters, but most of all, they love each other.  …She’s a little more serious and he’s a little more silly.  Together though, they make a sweet couple who clearly adore each other.


Stephanie & Lorenzo’s Park Engagement Session

I hadn’t met either Lorenzo or Stephanie until the engagement session.  We’d emailed a bit but never had the chance to meet.  Stephanie explained that sometimes her smiles seems false to others in photographs.  They may be true other times but not this day.  I immediately learned the secret to Stephanie’s genuine smile…Lorenzo.  One look at his face and she’d light up. He’d whisper something in her ear and she would laugh out loud.  I’ve never seen them apart from each other but in my short time with them, I am convinced they are better together.


I love this last one.  I think it’s more than just a fun photo but a glimpse into their lives as they leap into this next chapter.  Stephanie &  Lorenzo will be married in less than two weeks and I am honored to be there to capture all of it.
