Mr. & Mrs. Walling

Stephen and Kaylee tied the knot on this beautiful, sunny Friday afternoon in July.  I had previously shot their engagement session here, but hosting their wedding at the Maumee Bay State Park set side for a whole other feeling of love.  It was a gorgeous wedding, right down to the last ribboned detail of their seaside-themed reception.  The ceremony was outdoors, facing Lake Erie and the reflective pond – just in the perfect spot for a slight lakefront breeze to keep the bride and groom cool in their formal gown and tux (which was BEAUTIFUL…I love the full-length image of Kaylee looking over her shoulder from the window).   What a flattering and sexy dress!  We walked along the pond for some of their formal poses, before heading indoors.  And being the water-lover that I am, I couldn’t resist throwing in some creative shots with some of their decorations…like their rings with the conch shells.  Best wishes to you both!


Cameron + Jennifer = Engaged

We started Cameron and Jennifer’s session out at a small riverside park in Defiance, Ohio.  Although it had been a record hot and dry summer, this willow tree offered all the greenery we could ask for (and shade)!.   We got some great shots along the river, and even a few at the local library.   I didn’t realize it at first, but their daughter was in their truck with Grandpa.  So we captured a few images of their family at the end of the session.  And boy, is Olivia cute!   I can’t wait to photograph their wedding day…which is actually right around the corner!


Mr. & Mrs. Ciraulo

I first met Greg and Julia a few weeks before their big day.  We sat down for some coffee at a local Panera Bread and discussed all the details.  I could tell right away what a sweet couple they were…they were both all smiles, with sideways glances at each other.  “Simple” was how they wanted to keep their wedding; but if it was simple, then there is definitely beauty in simplicity!  Their venue of choice was the elegant Hilton Garden Inn at Levis Commons.   Julia looked so stunning and graceful, and Greg was so relaxed and looked just as when we first met – all smiles!  We began with a “First Look” by the Levis Commons clock tower, with the gushing water fountains and bright blue stuccoed tile.  Then following the ceremony, we snuck outside for a few more shots while their guests enjoyed a cocktail hour.   During all this, the staff was busy switching the ceremony room around into an evening ballroom, which you can see in the last image, was romantically decorated with twinkling candlelight and soft light.  Congrats to you both!
