The Arms Museum is where Brian proposed and proved to be a very romantic setting for their session.

One of my favorites from the day.

A friendly game of Trivial Pursuit...where I was warned that Brian always wins. 🙂

But today, they both win. 🙂

 

 

It did not seem that long ago that I was out shooting senior pictures for both Marsha and her sister, but nearly two years after that I was meeting with her, again.  This time to discuss her wedding and meet her fiance, Jaryd.  For their engagement, we had a great time exploring B&O Station and then heading up to the campus for some fun casual shots.  They had an idea to do a mock proposal, but with Marsha doing the proposing.  So funny.  Here are a few of my favorites.

Love the tiny little heart that showed up at the top of the diamond.

Marsha's mock proposal to Jaryd - lol.

Thank you, both!  Looking forward to the wedding!

While I’m making new friends all the time with what I do, sometimes I get to work with old ones (and make new ones at the same time) – which is awesome.  Donnie is a good friend of mine going back to our college years when we were  rocking around NRM Music (we both worked there in the day when music stores still existed) and hanging out at Cedars where his band and my husband’s band would often play.  Fast forward about 15 years – imagine how excited I was when he called me to ask if I would photograph his and Tasha’s wedding and then how sad I was when I realized the date they were looking at was already booked.  In a weird twist of fate a few weeks later, the couple who had originally booked the date decided they were going to move their wedding up.  I figured Tasha and Donnie at that point had found someone else, but sent him a quick email anyway.  They hadn’t and here we are!

We met in Canfield this past Saturday for part 1 of 2 engagement sessions – the (mostly) black & white wintery session.  It was cold and very snowy, but so fun.  I had a feeling it would be.  Tasha & Donnie told me that they laugh a lot when they’re together and they do.  I was laughing right along with them.

When I told them to give me a serious look - Don suggested the "Blue Steel" pose (Zoolander) - lol

So my personal favorite was a toss up between this one...and the next.

Thank you, both!  Can’t wait for part 2 – the warm weather engagement session and the wedding day!

I don’t know about you, but for me – once the holidays have ended, I start dreaming of summer.  Sad, right?  🙂  I long for barefeet, sunshine and endless hours of daylight.  What better way to cure the winter blues than to offer up a new contest.  So what do you have to do?  Simple, send in your favorite vacation photo from summertime or otherwise.  Give us all a chance to dream of getting away and no, it doesn’t have to specifically be a warm place.  Submissions will be taken until January 31st.  Anyone can enter…friends, family, clients, other photographers or complete strangers…you get the idea.  By submitting your image, you are giving me permission to post it on the facebook page.  Voting will take place starting February 1st and will end on February 7th at midnight.  Fans will vote by “liking” their favorite image.  The picture with the most “likes” wins!

Weekday session must take place before June 30th, 2011 and will be taken locally.  Can be any type of session (newborn, kids, engagement, day after, beloved, etc.).  Images can be emailed to me at mmgphotography@comcast.net.

Here's one of my favorite vacation photos. My husband and our little girl dancing on the beach in Maine. 🙂

I love what I do.  I’ve said it about a million times I’m sure, but to be able to capture people so in love….it’s just amazing.  I don’t think these images need much introduction…it’s pretty obvious how in love Sarah and Dan are.  They met at college and will be married there next year.  I can’t wait to be a part of it.  🙂

We started out in this cute little coffee shop.

...and then we went out to enjoy the gorgeous day!

How cool that this door happened to have their wedding date on it. 😉

I loved this spot.
