Brides Talk: Cara

It’s that time of year again!!!

I had SUCH a great time getting to know Cara and Josh over the past year.  Last April we finally were able to get their engagement session completed on one of the most picture perfect spring days one could imagine at the Cleveland Museum of Art and Wade Lagoon.  It took a few tries to get the timing right due to Ohio’s crazy idea of spring but I’m glad we waited because the blooms were simply amazing that day along with the weather.  We met back up in September with their wedding at the Tudor Arms in Cleveland and again, the weather was amazing and they too were so FUN to work with.  Any day that starts with the guys having a dance party while getting ready pretty much ensures that the day will be a TON of fun.  Nothing got these two down – not even a really terrible limo experience.  I’m sad I don’t have this wedding to look forward to anymore but so glad I got to work with them!

Here’s what Cara had to say about working with me:

“During the beginning stages of our wedding planning process, we asked our close friends and family for their advice.  The one piece of advice that we really took to heart was finding a photographer that we would enjoy spending our entire wedding day with.  When we met Corey Ann for our initial consultation, we immediately knew we wanted her to be our photographer.  Her photography style is so naturally beautiful and we absolutely loved her personality.  We booked her that day! We still couldn’t be happier with our decision.  

After a very charming engagement session with Corey, Josh and I felt completely comfortable with her which made us feel even more at ease on our wedding day.  Corey was truly amazing on our wedding day.  She captured so many amazing images that Josh and I will be forever grateful for.  After going to a couple different locations with our bridal party, she recommended that we select one location for just the two of us.  Not only did Corey take almost all of my favorite images of Josh and I at this location, but it also gave us a time in the hectic day when we had a moment for just the two of us.  I will always be grateful for Corey for that recommendation.”

I absolutely love this confetti picture because it captures our happiness right after the ceremony.  Our friends and family look adorable in the background too!



Our niece and nephew are best friends.  Corey took this photo of Phoenix and Max playing when the rest of us were getting positioned for our formal pictures. 


Josh and I saw Corey’s blog of a recent wedding and fell in love with the Jack Knife Bridge location.  We are so happy the leaves hung on for our September wedding.


One of my favorite pictures of my bridesmaids – they each look absolutely stunning!


This picture of Josh sneaking a kiss is one of my favorites because it was unprompted.


Josh and I didn’t know Corey was still taking pictures! I love how Josh is carrying my bouquet.


Being announced as husband and wife for the first time is one of my favorite memories from our wedding day.  Josh’s face is priceless.


The Tudor Arms Hotel is such a romantic venue and this picture embodies the elegance of the room.


Our band, Swagg, did such a great job learning our first dance song for us. Corey snuck this adorable picture in right before the end of our first dance.


Josh and I knew we wanted to have an open photobooth for our friends and family to enjoy.  This picture makes me smile because completely epitomizes our personalities.
