Josephine & Brandon’s day was full of family!  Everyone was there the morning of to help celebrate…aunts, uncles, cousins.  Complete with tons of cookies and loads of food, lots of smiles and this was just at the bride’s house.  The party continued throughout the day and night with formals at The Hoyt and a ton of dancing at The New Englander (with the help of the very awesome DJ Branden Morales).  It was beautiful and an absolute blast!

If you ever met me or my assistant, Angie, or saw us on the day of the wedding – you know how easily caught up in the emotion of it all we are.  The moment tears came to Brian’s eyes as he read Caitlin’s card the morning of the wedding, we were done for.  They were both so incredibly happy and excited to be taking their vows to each other that day, it wasn’t hard at all to get the feels (is that how the new saying goes?…lol).

They continue to get me, as recently I received the sweetest thank you from them that also brought tears to my eyes.  I’m always committed to doing the absolute best job I can for my couples.  It’s an amazing feeling to hear from them that I was able to capture all those emotions and hold them in an image for them forever.  🙂  (PS – If I could plan my wedding all over, again, I would have it at The Butler…wow.)

I seriously love the way Brenda & Ed look at each other!  🙂  Not just on the wedding day, but anytime I’ve seen them together – smiling, holding hands…pure happiness.  I was so honored when Brenda asked me to capture their wedding.  We met a few years ago when I started photographing her beautiful niece and she has such a sweet soul.  She’s definitely met her match.

If you’re thinking about a Fall wedding at Iron’s Mill Farmstead?  All I can say is do it.  The cooler weather was awesome.  The grounds and barn are gorgeous!  Revisiting these images are making me excited for my niece’s wedding in Maine next year (Fall + Barn + Maine = omg).  🙂

Ashton & Steve were a whole lot of fun that day!  So much dancing and so much love!  The sparkler exit was a perfect way to end the day.  It was an honor to be a part of all and here are some of my favorite captures!

Ever wonder how something goes viral on the net?  I had the chance to experience that first hand the day after Desiree & Christian’s beautiful wedding.  🙂  It started out with one of the sweetest couples.  A gorgeous day and tons of amazing details, but one in particular that grabbed everyone’s attention.  Desiree had a very special relationship with her grandfather who had passed on.  In his memory, Desiree had a cut a heart out of one of her grandfather’s shirts and sewn it to her dress.  What made that different…and I what I had never seen before or since…was that she had sewn it on the outside for the world to see – and, boy, did the world see it!  Branden was the DJ that evening and he shared several photos he had taken along with the story behind the heart on Desiree’s dress.  The next day Branden and Ashley (his wife) came for dinner with a story of their own.  The post was going nuts!  Being liked and shared all over…we couldn’t stop checking it all day long (and for days afterward) and the couple was super excited, as well.  But it didn’t stop there, this was a year ago in August and on the anniversary – the post again took off!  And my Facebook page was growing in likes and I couldn’t figure out why!  That’s when I saw Branden’s post being shared, again, with an image that I took of the couple in the comments (300,000+ likes and almost 100,000 shares!).  How crazy that the internet has made the world such a small place.  The story hit the heart of so many people!  Desiree’s grandfather I’m sure is smiling down.  🙂

DJ branden youngstown, oh


Here are some of my favs from that day!  It was so beautiful, Desiree & Christian, and I’m so happy to say that I was a part of it.  xoxo
