I got to shoot at my parish (Holy Rosary in Lowellville) for the first time in May.  It’s such a beautiful church.  I’ve been picturing a wedding there in my head for years.  Kristin + Fredy looked gorgeous and were so fun. Angie & I were both so glad to have been a part of their day.  Their bridal party kept us laughing for most of it.  We had lots of time for formals following (which I love, because it gives us time to just have fun!).  And we had an absolute ball at the reception when the dancing begin!  Thank you, Kristin & Fredy!  It was an honor!

I’d never had the chance to shoot at a castle before, so when Carri told me that’s where we’d be shooting the bridal party formals on her & Roy’s wedding day – I was pretty excited.  🙂  I expected to pull up and find the castle crawling with bridal parties (you know, Millcreek Flower Garden style), but we had the entire place to ourselves – giving us plenty of time to play!  Carri & Roy are such a sweet couple and I had a great time capturing their day for them.  Here are some of my favs!

I told the girls, you wouldn't see their faces in this shot. As you can see, Carri & her sister had some fun with that. LOL

The party was lots of fun!

The dj I recommend to all my couples! DJ Branden....a total blast! 🙂

May 5th was a pretty special day – the super moon, cinco de mayo and Deanna & Josh’s union.  Beautiful persons both inside and out…as a couple – they are truly glowing.  I have loved working with them.  Their wedding was so touching and a lot of fun.  Some of my favorite images ever have come from their day.  You need to catch the video below, to be sure to see everyone’s reaction when they first saw Deanna in her gown (especially her and her mom looking in the mirror…tears).  Plus the most awesome group shot.  Most of you already know the back-story, if you follow me on Facebook.  The adorable ring bearer and flower girl misunderstood when I shouted out to the bride and groom, “okay, now kiss!”.  The results were perfect – lol.  And David’s capture of the guy’s with the super moon at the end of the night was surreal.


Thank you, Deanna & Josh, for including us as part of your day.  It has been both an honor and a pleasure and I feel like I’ve walked away with some new friends.  🙂

Kelly and Chris’ April wedding could have gone either way weather-wise.  I checked the weather two weeks before and it said 70 degrees and sunny, but by the time we got to the 28th – it was 46 and sleeting.  Although, their outdoor wedding was not meant to be – their union definitely was (just look at those smiles).  By the time the ceremony was over, the rain/sleet had stopped and we were able to get some beautiful and really fun images outside.  These two wanted to do something different, they had told me when they met me.  So Chris brought (I believe 23 all together) Nerf guns and the battle ensued.  🙂  We had a great time with all of them.  Congratulations, Kelly & Chris, and thank you for having us as part of your day!

Check out the video for more fun and highlights from their day!

Krista & Chris won me over twice….not only are they dog lovers, but they’re also Beatles fans.  🙂  Check out their sweet family below and the cool shots we got when we ducked inside The Lemon Grove to dry off!  Can’t wait for your wedding, you two!  Thanks for a fun shoot!
