Melanie and Alex met in the United States Air Force. They have traveled all over the world and seen amazing sites, and are currently stationed in Utah. I am thrilled that they chose Canton, Ohio on this beautiful Veteran’s Day weekend, to begin their adventure as Husband and Wife. Their friends and family came from […]

This wedding last Saturday at the Westfield Inn in Westfield Center, Ohio was a dream! I absolutely love when we are invited into a family celebration like this one. Family and friends on both sides were so gracious and loving towards each other and it was obvious that they have and will continue to make […]

Best decision I’ve made for 2019 is including a complementary E-session for all of my weddings. I just love getting to know each couple and working with them before their wedding. Stacey and Joe are so cute. They went to the same high school but never knew each other. They went to different colleges but […]

Absolutely gorgeous evening for this October Family Session! Is this family not gorgeous? We took a bunch but here are my favorites!

They take Chloe walking here all the time and it’s one of their favorite spots. I love when a location has special meaning to a couple and […]

Cam and Ashley were friends during college and then one day realized there was something more between them.

I adore shooting at new places and this East 4th Engagement Session downtown Cleveland was a first for […]

This evening was actually quite cloudy and dark but sometimes that makes for photos like these. I just loved the way […]

I have heard sooo much about this venue…how amazing and beautiful it is and finally I got to see it for myself! So gorgeous! Sitting among rolling Ohio hills with tall grass and wildflowers, The Barn on Enchanted Acres truly lives up to its name. I especially love the outdoor ceremony site which is nestled […]

He proposed to her with a dozen of her favorite yellow roses and that bright sunny color was seen in many details of their wedding.  Anyone who spends time with Kris and Beth can see their love for each other.  It’s adorable the way her face lights up when she sees him and the way […]

I absolutely LOVED this Engagement Session with Candice and Jason last week.  Meeting right at the beginning of “Golden Hour” is always my goal and this one was so beautiful!  I’m so glad they decided to bring their Bernedoodle, “Phoenix” who was super photogenic!  We had so much fun getting these shots and he cooperated […]
