Sometimes things just fall right into place and when they do, it’s kind of magical.  When Holly, Adam and I set out on our hike down to McConnells Mills and this little chameleon appeared on the stone stairs – we had to try to get a few shots with him.  Not only did he cooperate, he matched perfectly with the colors in Adam’s shirt and he was kind enough to give Holly a little kiss on her finger.  🙂

Love Holly's "Future Mrs." jacket. So cute.

Our new friend 🙂

Most awesome rainboots ever...all the way from Texas.

Favorite!

Holly & Adam – Even though on this trip I found out how incredibly out of shape I am (that hike back up is a killer!),  I had a great time with you both!  Really looking forward to the wedding in the Fall.  It’s going to be a lot of fun!

It’s no secret.  I’m a dog person.  At one point in our life together, my husband and I had 8 (no, that’s not a typo).  All were rescued from the streets or otherwise.  All of them lived very long lives and were spoiled to the end (3 of those original 8 are still here and aging well).  So I love when a couple says they’d like to bring their dog along for the engagement session.  For one (the obvious) – I love dogs.  They’re cute, loyal and fun…but the other reason is that also means that they’re dog people, too.  We dog people stick together and just like our pets, we are also cute, loyal and fun (lol).  🙂

I met with Danielle, Jason and their adorable dog, Hannah, at The Butler Museum.  Thinking for sure we would have to compromise with the weather, we amazingly avoided the rain and were able to wonder around YSU Campus for some awesome images sans umbrellas.  I had a great time with these two (and getting to watch Hannah do her cool tricks).  I’m very excited that their wedding is coming up soon (in July) and can’t wait to be a part of it!

Hannah was super well-behaved and came fully ready with her eyeliner applied - a real pro. 🙂 Isn't she gorgeous?

All smiles!

She was so happy after receiving some kisses.

Definitely one of my favorites from the day.

Love how cute they are together. 🙂

Love this one, too! Campus was all full of blossoms.

 

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!

Here’s a couple that I know all too well.  Joey is, in fact, my brother-in-law and to our satisfaction (and surprise) – Leigh has agreed to marry him.  🙂  They will be wed next Fall and so decided that a pumpkin farm would be the perfect place for their e-session.  We headed out to Portersville where the skies were blue, but the pumpkin patch was a little picked over.  No worries.  There were plenty of great spots to choose from.  Here a few of my favorites from their session.

Loved the paper lanterns on the ceiling of the barn.

These two had me going from the start.  Ryan was convinced he was going to be “Chandler Bing” from the day we met (for those of you who were fans of “Friends”, you know what I mean).  Melissa’s father warned during our second meeting that she’s a blinker.  🙂   They were both great!  No blinking and no “Bing” moments.  The colors in the park were gorgeous that day and even though it was threatening rain, the weather held out and the session went off without a hitch (just a tiny bit of rain for about a half a second).  I had a lot of fun walking around with the two of them and can’t wait for their wedding next year!

This tree is always my favorite in the Fall. 🙂
