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!  🙂

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! 🙂

It always makes me feel good when a client returns!  I had photographed Nicole’s pretty sister a few years ago when she was graduating.  This time it was Nicole’s turn.  She had some really cute ideas (books she loves, tons of glitter – some of my fav images).  The rest she left up to me!  🙂

Deanna was in love with the idea of romantic pictures on the Cinderella Bridge, so that’s where we started when we met for their engagement session.  We ended up by the old furnace near Pioneer Pavilion and they suggested that they climb in (which I thought was pretty awesome).  You gotta love how cute these two are.  And they are so sweet together.  I can’t wait for their Spring wedding!  🙂

This past Fall, I got to shoot my very first Big Fat Greek Wedding and it was awesome.  Stellanie & Brian’s wedding was full of tradition.  The ceremony was beautiful and the reception was just one huge party (in the very hall named for Stellanie’s grandfather)!  I loved the dancing…there was a lot of it and they throw money (how can you go wrong?).  🙂 Some really great images from their day.  I think that some of my favorite, though, are the ones with their parents and grandparents looking on at the two of them.  Maybe because I am a parent, these really touched me.  You can see the pride and love in their eyes.

Thank you so much, Stellanie & Brian!  It was honor being there to capture your day (and the Day After session that followed in Cleveland…coming in it’s own blog post soon!).

Lots more in the video, so take a minute to check it out!
