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!

A few weeks ago, I had a chance to hang out with Christina & Drew to shoot their Youngstown, OH Engagement.  Christina brought lots of props to play with and an open mind.  Not only did we get some amazing images, but I had so much fun with them!  🙂  First off, Christina is hysterical.  I know this, because not long after the engagement – she was the maid of honor for another bride of mine and she was cracking me up all day long.  Drew?  Well, he is the perfect compliment to her and a true gentleman (making sure we didn’t fall on our way to the waterfall).  They are so sweet together!  So even though their wedding is almost to the day – a year away, I can’t wait!

Check out their session below and be sure to leave them some love in the comments!  🙂

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

Jordan & Andy were planning on including a classic car in their engagement session, so I immediately thought of Struthers.  I love this location!  Many don’t know that Struthers is where I spent the first decade of my life.  Probably 90% or more of my relatives are still there and it’s also where my parents own love story began.  🙂  It kind of holds a place in my heart and the memories flood back when I’m there.  We started off at this amazing old steel bridge.  You know the kind where you can see through the bottom?  Yeah, it kind of freaks me out a little (not a fan of heights), but I do love shooting on it – so I try not to look down…lol.  The streets of “downtown” are full of textures and color and then a walk away is the park.  I met a Selah’s employee that night and he asked why I liked shooting there?  I told him to look around.  It’s gorgeous!  I think I see it with a different eye than him. 😉

Jordan & Andy were awesome.  They completely rocked their entire session!  I’m pretty sure that their December wedding is going to be one of my favorites this year.  🙂

Ashley & Matt – I can’t say enough good things about these two!  From the time that Ashley and Matt’s mom came to see me at the studio (thank you, Chrissy, for referring them), I knew I wanted to be their photographer and, thankfully – they felt the same!  🙂  What a beautiful wedding with such gorgeous details, the best hashtags ever (#ijustgotgroped, #gropefest2015 – their last name, in case you’re wondering…lol), the best favors ever (Stone Fruit Coffee!)and awesome friends!  We had such a blast with you all (especially in the photo booth later that day!)

I found out recently that Ashley’s Rock the Dress session is going to be a maternity session instead!  So I want to wish them a huge congratulations!  I couldn’t be happier for you both!!  You’re going to be the best parents!  Stay tuned to the blog for more of Ashley & Matt and their growing family.  😉
