Danielle & Jeff’s gorgeous Youngstown, OH engagement at Mill Creek was so fun.  They are such a sweet couple and gorgeous!  I love Danielle’s style and pink pumps, especially!  We happened upon a rose that was perfect for the ring shot and after exploring the rose garden, we headed over to Lanterman’s Mill for a more casual look (Jeff’s favorite spot!).  I’m so excited for their upcoming wedding, which is only a few weeks away!!  Check out some of my favorites from their session and be sure to leave them some love below!

Athena & Ronnie’s Warren, Oh wedding at St. Demetrio’s was emotional to say the least.  Her father not only gave her away, but he was, also, the officiant.  I don’t think there was a dry eye in the church when Rev. Valantasis spoke of the day he brought his daughter home from the hospital.  It still brings a tear to my eye when I think of it.

We began that chilly day at Lake Newport for their first look.  This was probably the quietest, most peaceful first look I’ve ever done.  The lake was so quiet and the boardwalk was empty, except for us.  Then we headed to the flower garden for some quick formals and off to the church.  I had never been to St. Demetrio’s before that day – wow, so beautiful!

Here is a link to the highlight video created by Mike Tsagares of Acclaim Productions – highly recommend him and Judy for videography every time! 🙂

Thank you for having Jamie & I as part of your day, Ronnie & Athena!!  It was truly an honor.  <3

Millcreek is definitely the hotspot for photography.  There is a reason for that – it’s gorgeous.  So much opportunity in one area.  I shoot there way more often than anywhere else. The familiarity of it is comforting, but I’m always trying to find something new to shoot – otherwise I risk having everyone’s images look the same! So Nikki and I shot in some familiar spots and then we found some really cool natural sculptures to use for pretty texture in the background. Here are some of my favs from her senior session! 🙂

So these two are becoming Mr. & Mrs. in less than a week!  So exciting!  I can’t wait to be a part of their day!  Recently the house across the street from me was sold and I was thrilled when I realized it was Nicole & Scott who purchased it.  🙂  So I’ve decided that my new neighbors are not only the sweetest, but also the cutest.  Here is a snippet from their gorgeous engagement session in Millcreek Park just a few short weeks ago.  See for yourself!

Stephanie & Matt met each other while going to school at YSU.  His first gift to her was Pete the Penguin (you’ll see Pete making an appearance below).  🙂  The two of them are super sweet and I’m so excited to be a part of their day this coming summer!  We met last year while I was shooting her sister’s wedding (the wedding of Kristin & Steven – which we had so much fun at!).    Here are some images from their engagement session at Millcreek and YSU!  I love them all, but I think the one on the bridge (at the very bottom) is my favorite.
