Hyatt Arcade New Years Eve Wedding with Julie and Ryan

Cleveland New Years Eve Wedding

I think I may be a strange bird but I absolutely adore New Years Eve weddings.  I’ve done a few over the years and every time I book one I do a bit of a happy dance.  They are so fun and just up the level of happy that weddings have.  Also?  I may have a small obsession with LED blinky lights and confetti and almost every NYE wedding has these.  We stay home typically so it also gives me an excuse to get out.

Julie and Ryan are just so darn sweet together.  They chose to do a first look which was smart since they were having both of their ceremony and reception at the Hyatt.  Their first look was perfection and nothing but large smiles and massive grins.  They were just so easy together and documenting their love was a dream.  I loved their ceremony which was short, sweet and extremely personal to the two of them.

By midnight the confetti canon went off with perfection thanks to Selective Sound and it was such a fun way to ring in 2018!

Thank you both so much for trusting me to document your beautiful day!  It was SUCH an honor to spend New Years Eve with you!

Chenoweth Golf Course Winter Wedding with Brittany and John

December Wedding at Chenoweth Golf Course

I love when I have weddings that are booked based on referrals from past clients.  Not only is it the best compliment that I can recieve since they loved their photos enough to refer me but I also have noticed that these clients always trust me completely from the get go.  Much was the same with Brittany and John.  They were already such a sweet and easy going couple but their trust in me was immediately apparent and it made for a great day!

It took quite a while for me to finally have my first cold wedding last year and unfortunately it was on their date.  The day was a bit gloomy and spitting snow off and on but Brittany and John (and their bridal party!) were all game for a few photos outside.  It was a quick run through pictures but I am so glad they braved the elements for it!

Thank you both SO much for trusting me with your photos!  Also another thank you to the wonderful vendors I worked with – Chenoweth and DJ Kurt are wonderful to work with and I highly recommend them both!

Chagrin Falls Winter Family Portrait Session

Last December I met up with this sweet family in Chagrin Falls and it was such a perfect day for photos!  I always tell my clients that you either want a sunny warm day or snow.  Luckily for them (since they have a sweet baby) it was a warm sunny day.  The decorations for the holidays were SO perfect downtown!!  Hopefully another family session takes place down there again because I was charmed by the city!

This little kiddo was so dang sweet.  His hair is so freaking amazing and I love it SO much!  Smiles were hard to win due to the stranger danger but when he smiled everything lit up! I love when grandparents are also along – it meant that I was able to get a photo of three generations together!  I love when I’m able to do this as some of my favorite photos of me as a kid are those with me and my parents and grandparents.
