Mr. & Mrs. Hancock

{Toledo Wedding at the Premier}

Samuel and Kattie had one of the most amazing wedding ceremonies for their fall wedding!  Samuel sang to his bride as she walked down the aisle to him on the arm of her son.  And wow!  What a voice!  Samuel could SING!  Their deep love and respect for each other is so obvious to those around them, and radiated through their family and friends that witnessed their vows.  Congratulations to the happy couple!  And we really loved being a part of your Toledo wedding at the Premier!

I’ve been dying to feature Sara and Rob’s engagement session on our blog!  Their Toledo engagement photography session was the perfect blend of love, fall weather, and a fabulous sunset that would make any wedding photographer weak at the knees!  While Wildwood Metropark has lots to offer for background scenery, we decided to focus on  just one beautiful spot in one of their overgrown fields.  It’s here where all the magic happened for their photo session while we waited on the sunset.

Sara, I just LOVE this portrait of you!  You are so stunning!

We love to use a mixture of lighting techniques to create a wide variety of portraits.  Sara and Rob’s Wildwood Park photo session featured both natural light photography (using only the sunlight) and studio light with the sunset (Yes!  We bring an armload of lighting gear from our studio).  The resulting combo?  Extraordinary and lovely images!

Discover the 5 Must-Have Steps for Getting Organized for Your Holiday Season

Christmas Photos in Toledo 024-2a

 Step 1.  Create gifts that are personal.


The best gifts are never the most expensive, but the most thoughtful.  These can be individually personalized, like using their name, wedding date, or other personal touch.  Or, for the creative gifters, these can be presents that were custom-made by you, like candies or crafted photo frames.

Step 2.  Share tasks like wrapping gifts or baking cookies together with family and friends.

These can be fun get-togethers that create festive memories… all while checking one more to-do item off your list!  With friends, wrap your family gifts.  And vice versa when with family, wrap your friends’ gifts!  Odds are you’ll have fun mixing up the creativity with wrapping!

Step 3.  Create Holiday To-Do Lists


This will help you stay focused on timelines and the tasks at hand.  Plus, you’ll have a ready answer if family or friends ask if there is something they can help with.

Step 4.  Hire a Housekeeper


As odd as this might sound, the holiday season is a busy time of year for everyone!  Why bother with having to worry about cleaning house for company or dinners, when you can hire someone to help out during the holidays.  Trust me, this will bring you a whole new feeling of more time to get things done!  (or just to relax!)

 Step 5.  Get Christmas Cards Out By December 1st


Aren’t we all guilty of mailing the Christmas cards out the week before Christmas, or worse, late or never?  If you are personalizing your cards with a family photo, remember to have your photo session finished by November 14 so you’ll get your order of cards back in time.  And check with your photographer; they might have a different deadline for getting your order back to you, depending on their studio workflow.  Don’t have a session scheduled, yet?  Check out our Christmas Mini Sessions available for a limited time at our Toledo Studio!
