Brandon & Chelsea’s Cozy Winter Wedding in Akron

Chelsea and Brandon share a sincere love that made their wedding day uniquely precious. The Memorial Chapel in Akron was sunny and warm despite the freezing cold temperatures outside as this cute couple said their vows surrounded by the light of loving family and friends.  One of the things that really stood out about Chelsea and Brandon was their undeniable joy, not just about their wedding day, but even more about the marriage they were entering into. There was no doubt that this couple had prepared their hearts for what was in store after all the celebrating was over and their journey through life together began.

After a meaningful ceremony in Akron, we headed to Uniontown to the cozy and inviting Uniontown Park Community Center to begin the evening’s festivities. So many great little details were planned to make this night a whole lot of fun.  The hot chocolate bar, elaborate cookies, personalized mugs, festive lights, and cupcakes galore made everyone want to settle in and enjoy the party. A lot of touching stories were recounted, blessings were given, and a general sense of gratitude for all that had been experienced in life so far topped off a very special night.  I think all the adorable kids happily running around best reflected the tone of the day – contentment, joy, and pure love. We hope you experience bits and pieces of all those things everyday of your life together!


On Location Family Photographer

Time & time again one of my favorite parts of my business are the people I meet.  I get to work with some wonderful people and many become life friends.  Julie is one of these.  If you follow the blog, you may remember Julie and her family from last year.  I was thrilled when she called again to set up another session.  And, not surprisingly, just like last year the photos were gorgeous.

Check out the adorableness.


Jim & Jessica’s Kent State Engagement Session

Jim proposed this past summer in Soana Island, Punta Cana and of course Jessica said yes.  They are getting married at Gervasi Vineyard next fall and I can’t wait to be there to capture it.  If it’s anything like their engagement session, the photographs will be gorgeous.

As proud Kent State graduates, Jim & Jessica knew their engagement session should be there.  They met at Mugs so we started the session with the bar’s awning in the background.  As we walked from place to place, it was fun hearing them both relive moments from their college days.

The weather was cold and rainy but you’d never know it from these photos.  See for yourself…


Beautiful Brecksville Engagement Session

It takes all of about 5 minutes with Milko & Gordana to really like them.  They are kind and fun and the type of people you just want to be around.  Both of them grew up in Europe and came to America as children and their story is amazing.  I was so honored to play this small part in capturing it.


We had a great time in Brecksville Metro Park and I am so looking forward to their wedding in just a couple weeks.
