Mini Family Session at CVNP

Last summer I met up with this ADORABLE family and these two girls.  Sometimes despite the best laid plans the kiddos are just not in a mood to pose and smile.  Sometimes the parents are upset, sometimes, like this sweet family, they just roll with it that the kids are NOT in a stand and smile mood and are still happy they have sweet photos documenting their family how they are.  Honestly?  I kind of like the documentary style better because it shows off everyone’s personalities a bit more.

We lucked out with a BEAUTIFUL evening at the Octagon Shelter Park at Cuyahoga Valley National Park and the golden light was perfection.

Silver Grille Wedding in Cleveland with Katie and Bart

Bride and Groom Wedding Photos at Chagrin Falls

I got to know Katie and Bart rather well at our engagement session the previous May in Chicago.  I spent a few hours with them walking all over the city and I was so excited to see them again for their wedding at the Silver Grille in Cleveland.  I was especially glad when the weather was on our side again and it was a beautiful day in Ohio.

Katie and Bart chose not to see each other until the walk down the aisle, which is totally fine. After the ceremony they were both SO much more at ease and you could tell that their souls were just so happy to finally be together.  It sounds a bit woo-woo so forgive me but there was such a light that came out in both of them when they finally were back together.

Their love is the cozy kind of love.  The one that keeps a permanent smile on your face, the kind where they both are seeking the others eyes no matter where they are in the room, the kind that always reaches out for a light touch when nearby.

Thank you SO much for allowing me to document your beautiful wedding.  Special thanks also to my amazing second shooter Tom Forrest who always is amazing!

Summer Akron Engagement Session with Alyssa and Taylor

Last summer I met up with Alyssa and Taylor while they were in town and instead of going to a park they opted to take their photos at Taylor’s parent’s home in Akron.  I love when clients choose places that have meaning to them beyond “it’s pretty” because I think it’s neat to document not only your love but the places you love too.  Taylor’s parents built their home and it’s a beautiful place on beautiful grounds.

Of course, it being Ohio, the day of their session was a stormy day.  While we managed to get most of the photos in before the downpour we did get caught at the very end.  I love that they weren’t phased by it and went back out in it despite the rain.

They got married last fall and it was one of the most romantic weddings I’ve ever photographed.  I can’t wait to blog that soon!
