Toledo Wedding Photographers | Capturing Love in 2014

Toledo Wedding Photographers

{Capturing Love in 2014}

With New Years Eve finally here, it’s been so fun reminiscing back on the year.  2014 has brought us so many blessings, including the opportunity to work with such fabulous couples that trusted us with the biggest day of their lives.  The best part of being a wedding photographer is being involved with each bride and groom from the initial consultation, engagement session, and finally, the wedding day!  We’ve laughed, cried, and rejoiced with so many little moments our couples shared with us.  Tearful ‘First Looks’, fathers seeing their little girl all dressed up, the first kiss as husband and wife… Amazing memories that you’ll now get to cherish and share for generations to come through your portraits.  Thank you to each one who chose us to be your Toledo wedding photographers.  We love you and we wish you all a very happy and prosperous new year!

Heather Downs Country Club of Toledo, Ohio is not only a gorgeous golf course and wedding venue in Toledo, it’s also “THE place to party for the holidays”!  The full service clubhouse was established in 1925 as a horse racing track, and then later as a private country club.  Heather Downs offers its beautifully-maintained golf course to both club members and to the public.  Its historic site is coveted as the Toledo wedding venue of choice and private events alike!  With over 30,000 square feet of clubhouse, Heather Downs is the perfect location for the holidays, too!

Kyle and Kyrie: Engaged! | Toledo Wedding Photographer

Kyle and Kyrie: Engaged!

{Toledo Wedding Photographer}

Kyle and Kyrie have such a unique tale of how their love story began.  They were set up for a double date with other people, but when they met up to head out, both of their dates didn’t show.  So, they went on their own date and the rest was history!  All things happen for a reason, and theirs ended up with the best ending!  They have also defied all odds with their long-distance relationship from Georgia and Toledo.  And we can’t wait for them to spend their happily ever after TOGETHER!

With their summer Schedel Gardens wedding right around the corner, they opted for an urban engagement session in downtown Toledo while Kyle was in town for the Thanksgiving holiday.  Definitely a different background than what they’ll have for their wedding day!  One thing with the urban look, you usually can’t tell the season!  Great location choice for your Toledo engagement pictures, you two!  (P.S. And, I’m sure you were both models in another life!  🙂

It was COLD for Kristina and David’s engagement session at Wildwood Park in Toledo, but you’d never guess from their portraits!  Their love for each other is so obvious and adorable; it radiated from them.  We started their session in one of Wildwood’s gorgeous fields, and then wrapped up by the Manor House.  They were so fun to work with, and we are looking forward to their fall wedding at the stellar Heatherdowns Country Club!  David and Kristina, we’re so excited to be your Toledo wedding photographer!

I have to stop here and just say that their outfit choices were perfect for their location!  We love it when couples dress to coordinate with each other, but not too match-y.
