I have to repeat what I said about Kali + Bryan in their engagement post a month ago, because it’s just so fitting – they are two incredibly creative and sweet souls.  So many details  and tons of work went into their wedding day.  They even designed their own cake (which Clarencedale Cake geniously brought to life for them).  They are pretty obviously crazy about each other and they know how to have fun.  The images went from breathtaking to hysterical.  Angie and I spent most of the day either laughing or crying (see Bryan’s face when he first sees Kali coming down the aisle and Kali’s dance with her grandfather….so many sweet tears).  The policeman we met at the apartments at YSU was hysterical and very cooperative!  (see below)  🙂  I hope you enjoy checking out their images as much as we enjoyed capturing them.  Thank you, also, to Julia for interning with me for part of the day.  She did a great job!

Kali and Bryan – I can’t thank you enough for being so sweet.  I’m so glad you have chosen me to capture not only your wedding, but your future life changing events as well and I can’t wait.  🙂

From out of town, I was contacted by this beautiful little one’s mom!  She was coming to visit family from across the country to celebrate her 2nd birthday.  She is such a little doll and as giggly and happy as she looks.  A total joy to photograph.

I can hardly wait for the wedding of Meagan & Adam.  Not only did they choose an amazing location – Powers Auditorium, but they have nothing but style.  Although it seemed to be completely by accident that we ended up in front of Saks on Fifth – I have to think fate was also involved, because they fit in perfect tucked inside the brass revolving doors and it ended up being one of my favorite images ever.  What a fun day it was!  At least four times, I was asked who they were by strangers – as if they were pro models or movie stars!  Thank you, Meagan & Adam!  I have to agree – you two should be in a magazine.  🙂

I got to shoot at my parish (Holy Rosary in Lowellville) for the first time in May.  It’s such a beautiful church.  I’ve been picturing a wedding there in my head for years.  Kristin + Fredy looked gorgeous and were so fun. Angie & I were both so glad to have been a part of their day.  Their bridal party kept us laughing for most of it.  We had lots of time for formals following (which I love, because it gives us time to just have fun!).  And we had an absolute ball at the reception when the dancing begin!  Thank you, Kristin & Fredy!  It was an honor!

I’d never had the chance to shoot at a castle before, so when Carri told me that’s where we’d be shooting the bridal party formals on her & Roy’s wedding day – I was pretty excited.  🙂  I expected to pull up and find the castle crawling with bridal parties (you know, Millcreek Flower Garden style), but we had the entire place to ourselves – giving us plenty of time to play!  Carri & Roy are such a sweet couple and I had a great time capturing their day for them.  Here are some of my favs!

I told the girls, you wouldn't see their faces in this shot. As you can see, Carri & her sister had some fun with that. LOL

The party was lots of fun!

The dj I recommend to all my couples! DJ Branden....a total blast! 🙂
