| Chris & Beth 2022 |

Love and Laughter were in the air last Saturday as we headed out to Independence Dam to capture Chris & Beth’s engagement!  With unusually warm weather for October and lots of great color, it was the perfect backdrop for their session.  Having known Beth for quite some time, it was wonderful to meet Chris and see the smile that he brought to her and the light that shown in her eyes.  It was great to catch up and find unique spots and some breathtaking views of fall beauty across the Maumee River.  Congratulations Chris & Beth, thank you both for a wonderful evening!

| Dan & Jacque 2019 |

Fall is here!  The leaves are starting to turn colors and some are even falling.  While we still have some summer like temperatures here and there, cooler weather isn’t far away!  Pumpkins, apple cider, hoodies, and so many amazing sessions are coming up!  Last Saturday was spent at the always beautiful Side Cut Metropark in Maumee with Dan and Jacque for their engagement session!  We drove through heavy rains to get there, but upon arrival it stopped, became cloudy, and with just some sprinkles, we had a gorgeous day!  They brought along their sweet pup as well, she was so well behaved and loved smelling all the new smells as we explored the park.  One of the many attractions at Side Cut are the Canal Locks, they hold much history for NW Ohio and they did not disappoint with their beauty for Dan and Jacque!  We walked paths, found great steps, waterfalls, gorgeous tress, and some amazing moss for a quick detail shot of Jacque’s ring!  They will be eloping for their wedding, while they haven’t decided just where yet, I’m sure it will be beautiful!  Congratulations Dan and Jacque!

| Zach & Kenzie Engagement |

Spring is here!  However while there are still many places with little color, there are others with lush green grass and budding trees!  I am so excited to capture the wedding of Zach & Kenzie this coming August and last weekend we met in Grand Rapids, Ohio for their engagement session!  Providence Park was still hibernating, but after finding several wonderful spots, we headed to the always beautiful Nazareth Hall where their wedding reception will be held!  Even though it was only a few miles away from our starting point, there were gorgeous green grasses and the grotto was perfect!  After some great captures of the two of them, we tuned the engagement session into a mini family session and added in their beautiful little girl!  With a smile from ear to ear, you couldn’t be anything but happy around her!  Zach & Kenzie are such a sweet couple and I can’t wait to spent their special day with them!  Congratulations you two!

| Phil & Kim Engagement |

Kim & Phil are adorable together!  I am so excited to get to capture their special day this coming September!  We headed out to Kim’s home for their engagement session on a beautiful summer evening of gator rides and some pretty cute goats!  Meeting new people is so much fun and I was excited to get a message from Kim, and was even more excited to find out that I knew some of her family and even her fiance!  Engagement sessions are a great time to see how a couple interacts with one another and to find the perfect poses for them on their big day, it didn’t take long for Kim and Phil to find their rhythm in front of the camera, they were naturals!  I’m looking forward to spending their day with them, congrats Kim & Phil!

| Tyler & Erica Engagement |

This year in Ohio it has taken much longer for spring to arrive, but last weekend I got to spend the afternoon with this sweet couple for their engagement session!  In our area we are lucky to have Ohio’s largest living-history destination, Sauder Village; Tyler and Erica met here while working summer jobs(they still work here!) and it seemed only fitting to do their engagement session at the Village!  The love between these two radiates, they see each other and they both beam!  Tyler looks at Erica and lights ups, Erica is all smiles when she looks at Tyler.  It was wonderful to have the Village all to ourselves, we reminisced about how things have grown and changed, where buildings used to be, and what the upcoming season will bring!  Their laughs are infectious, their love is beautiful, and I can’t wait to capture their wedding in July!  Congratulations Tyler & Erica!

|April & Tyler Engagement |

I don’t know if these two can get any cuter! I got to spend a cool fall day with them and had so much fun capturing their personality as a couple! We went to the always gorgeous and unique Grand Rapids and spent the afternoon walking around looking for fun new spots and using places that April & Tyler had scoped out a few weeks before. We’ve been working on save the dates and invitations and I’m looking forward to their wedding next July, can’t wait to capture that day for them! Congrats April & Tyler!

| Natalie & Aaron Engagement |

Engagement sessions are a wonderful time to celebrate a couple, get some great shots, and of course have a little fun! Natalie & Aaron compliment one another so well and are so much fun to be around!  Natalie and I went to school together, through sharing band, choir, and classes, she hasn’t changed a bit and she has found an amazing man who evidently loves every quality she has!  We spent a warm Saturday evening catching up, laughing, learning, and getting in some Superman poses!  I was so excited to capture their engagement!  Though I can’t be there to share your big day due to our little one’s arrival, I’ll be thinking of you both!  Congrats Natalie & Aaron!

| Brent & Christy |

Brent & Christy are getting married this fall and I have the honor of getting to capture their special day!  We spent a buggy bit in the woods while dodging some rain drops!  Luckily the rain held off until we were done!  I always love when a couple starts out a bit shy and by the end of the session, they are ready and geared up to try anything.  Christy had been researching and scouting locations and found some great poses that she wanted to try for the two of them, it’s always fun to build a session around a couple’s idea and help bring their thoughts to life!  Thanks for a great afternoon, can’t wait for October!
