Miller Nature Preserve Wedding with Madina and Nathan

September Wedding at Miller Nature Preserve

Last September I met up with Nathan and Madina for their gorgeous wedding at the Miller Nature Preserve.  It was my first visit to this lovely space but it wasn’t my last (I was here a week later).  It is SUCH a lovely spot and I hope to return many more times in the years to come now that I know about this gem.

Nathan and Madina were SUCH a lovely couple to work with.  I seem to attract low-key clients and they were such a chill couple.  I love how easy going they were and willing to go along with whatever I suggested.  Their bridal party was also super chill and this vibe spread out to their whole wedding.  It was one of the most zen weddings I’ve been to.  Beyond that, these two just were so much in love that it made capturing it so easy!

We started our day off with most of the photos with their bridal party and Nathan and Madina.  I love when we’re able to do this since it frees my couples up after the ceremony to visit with their guests!  After their gorgeous ceremony on the patio we took a few more photos before they moved their reception inside to The Orchid Room.  I love that they were able to keep the patio through the evening and I peeped on Instagram after I left and saw they turned it into a dance floor by the end of the night!

Thank you both so much for trusting me with your day.  You were a joy to work with!

Steele Mansion Wedding with Candace and Tim

Wedding portrait at Steele Mansion

Every year it’s always interesting to see how my year books up.  When I started 11 years ago June was the “it” month to get married but over the past few years it shifted from September and now onto October.  So what used to be the silly season (May/June/July) has shifted to a new spot (September/October).  This means it’s rare I have a weekend off but last year I ended up with a couple weekends off in early September.  I ended up booking two smaller weddings on those weeks and it was SUCH a treat to have a bit of a change in pace from the big weddings over the summer.

Candace and Tim got married at the beautiful Steele Mansion in Painesville.  I had not been to it before but I’ve already recommended it to a few people looking for an intimate location for a wedding.  Their wedding was completely my kind of wedding, and in fact was very similar to my own – minus the beach!  They had a lovely ceremony and then a delicious dinner followed by a cake cutting.  Nothing too fussy and was all celebrated with their family.  It was perfect.

Thank you both for trusting me to capture your beautiful day!

Twisted Olive Anniversary Session

On one of the first cooler days last fall I met up with this lovely family for a session after their dinner at The Twisted Olive in Green.  They were together to celebrate a 20th anniversary so we did a few family photos before I split off with the happy couple for a few more photos.  Alena’s dress was SO pretty and I loved how it looked with the the backdrop.
