| Phil & Kim 2018 |

What better way to celebrate the Labor Day Holiday Weekend than with a wedding?! Phil and Kim tied the knot last Sunday, while it was very warm and humid, that didn’t stop their family and friends from helping to make it a beautiful day! I had gotten an email from Kim just days before the wedding saying they had a big surprise for Phil, and a wonderful surprise it was! Their getaway ride was an old Ford tractor, belonging to Kim’s uncle, that Phil had been wanting to take out for a spin; it was always conveniently unavailable due to being prepped for their big day! Delicious food and cupcakes, with the cupcake stand made by Phil, wonderful conversations, a beautiful couple, and an evening tractor session made for a spectacular day! Congrats Phil & Kim!

What a beautiful day Tyler & Erica had for their wedding last weekend!  The guys were handsome in their blue suits and the girls we gorgeous in their deep navy dresses!  The flowers smelled amazing and the details at the reception were intricate and a perfect depiction of who Tyler & Erica are.  We had so much fun at their engagement session at Sauder Village a few months back and we had even more fun at the wedding with the addition of a great bridal party!  Many couples are opting to do a first look on the big day, but Tyler & Erica didn’t want to see each other until Erica walked down the aisle.  I got a message from Erica the day before the wedding saying they had changed their mind and wanted to add in a first look, and I’m so glad they did!  The emotion between them in the moments that Tyler turned around and saw Erica can’t be put into words, there is an amazing connection between this sweet couple that you just have to see!  The ceremony went off without a hitch, we had a great time with the bridal party, and the reception was full of great food, cake, and dancing!  We decided to take advantage of the beautiful evening and head outside towards the end of the reception and take some gorgeous photos next to an old truck!  It was a beautiful day for this amazing couple, it has been great working with them, I was honored to spend their day with them, and can’t wait to see what their future holds, Congrats Tyler & Erica!

Just over a year ago I got an email from a sweet couple looking to book their photographer for 2018, we met and instantly hit it off!  Tyler & Olivia have been so much fun to work with over this last year when we started with their engagement session and save the date cards, to their invitations, koozies, and capturing their big day.  The day started out rainy and dreary, but as I arrived at the church, the rain stopped and things brightened up!  They opted to not see each other before the ceremony, but instead we did a corner meet so that they could exchange letters and have a moment to themselves and it was so sweet!  The bridesmaids and moms were great help in getting Olivia ready and the groomsmen were ready to get Tyler down the isle!  We heard showers while we were inside off and on, but when we were ready to head out with the bridal party, the showers stopped again and we had great weather for outdoor portraits!  Every detail of the day was planned perfectly, from the dresses and tuxes, to the beautiful cake and chocolate frosted cupcake heart in the middle of the cake table and the sweet note attached to the guests’ silverware!  Olivia looked gorgeous and Tyler beamed with pride as he saw her for the first time walking down the isle!  I’m so happy for Tyler & Olivia and look forward to seeing them around town and many more fun sessions in the future!  Congratulations you two!!!

I had the pleasure of shooting alongside fellow photographer Shaylee Brown last weekend at a beautiful wedding in Toledo!  It’s so much fun to be able to weave our talents together, bounce ideas and thoughts off one another, and teach and learn from each other; community over competition, pushing each other forward, and building each other up!  The day started off rainy, but as soon as Nick & Theresa’s ceremony ended, the rain stopped and we were able to capture some gorgeous shots before the reception!  Enjoy some of my images from the day!  Thank You Shaylee for asking me to join you and Congratulations Nick & Theresa!

| Tyler & Olivia Save The Dates |

This fall you saw this wonderful couple’s engagement session sneak peaks and we recently finished up their save the dates and are in the final stages of their invitations!  I love sitting down with these two and going over the details of their day as we inch closer with each meeting!  Being able to create custom save the dates for couples helps to make their special day even more amazing, with their images, their colors, and even a special font just for them!  I am looking forward to June and capturing this beautiful couple say I Do!

What a wonderful session last Saturday to kick off the fall season!  The leaves are beginning to change, however it’s been unseasonably hot and humid, weather that we would normally see in July and August!  Despite the heat I spent a wonderful Saturday evening with Tyler & Olivia!  We started out at a beautiful location in the country and then headed downtown to use the wonderful old brick buildings, all the while staying in the shade to keep cool.  Now that fall is here, that also means football season, and we couldn’t do a fall session without including some shots in their favorite team colors!  With so many wonderful images from the session, it was hard to find just a few sneak peeks to share.  Thank you for a great evening, Congrats Tyler & Olivia!
