Chris + Silvia = Engaged! | Engagement Photos Toledo

From the first time someone meets Chris and Silvia, it’s obvious how in love they are with each other!  They first met while Silvia worked for the Toledo Mayor’s office.  Chris also worked for the city and often had to stop by her office for work.  Silvia’s coworkers knew they’d be perfect for each other, so they helped set them up on their first date at a Toledo Mudhen’s game!  What amazing friends!  The date went great and now they are engaged!  For engagement photos Toledo has a lot to offer!  They selected Maumee’s Sidecut Metropark for their engagement session with photographer Jon, which is so beautiful year round for portraits.

How did Chris propose?  Silvia is originally from Columbia and moved here to the States 7 years ago with her family.  Chris and Silvia traveled together back to Columbia for this past Christmas so he could meet more of her family.  He already knew he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her, so he was waiting for the perfect moment to propose.  He’d even already had the ring for 4 weeks.  Their hotel room was right by the beach and had a beautiful view.  As she was gazing out the window, he knew it was the right moment.  He proposed and, of course, she said, “yes”!

Excited doesn’t even describe how pumped we are to be David and Dani’s wedding photographers next year!  They are such a fun couple and I have no doubt that their wedding at the Park Inn will be just as fun as they are!  Since so many of their dates and engagement involved coffee, we had to have their engagement photography at a coffee shop.  Downtown Toledo has so many cute little shops.  The Rustbelt Coffee House was the perfect setting!

They met on match.com and found out that they only lived a mile apart!  How did he propose?  On their 3 year anniversary, he took Dani out for a romantic dinner at Element 112 in downtown Sylvania.  Dani was so sure he was going to propose then, so when he didn’t ask at dinner, she thought it wouldn’t be the night.  Instead, David completely surprised her at home with family waiting in the dark when she walked in the house.  Frank Sinatra was playing in the background, and he proposed with a line from the Rocky II movie of Rocky’s proposal to Adrian.  “What are you doing for the next 40-50 years? So I was wondering if you wouldn’t mind marrying me very much?”  And Dani said, ‘yes’!

Andrew + Emily | Toledo Engagement Pictures

Andrew and Emily’s love story began on Match.com.  Best membership fee they ever paid!  Andrew had an account active for 7 months, but Emily had only been on a week when they met.  Their first date was at El Zarape Restaurant in Bowling Green, and then they went bowling together afterwards.  Emily was actually on the bowling league in college, and eventually Andrew started traveling with her during league games.  They were inseparable!  And now they are planning their wedding and the rest of their lives together!  For their Toledo engagement pictures, they choose Toledo’s beautiful Wildwood Metropark.  Now that fall is almost at an end, it’s the perfect time to share their session they had with JH Photography lead photographer, Jon!

Toledo Engagement PicturesToledo Engagement Pictures

How did Andrew propose?  It was so romantic!  He invited Emily along on his family’s vacation to San Diego.  His family helped him plan a “family photo shoot” on the beach with a photographer.  Then he dropped down on one knee and asked Emily to be his forever.  She said yes!  Toledo Engagement Pictures Toledo Engagement Pictures Toledo Engagement Pictures

Jared + Amanda | Tamaron Country Club Wedding

Jared and Amanda have such a fun energy about them, which of course, followed them for their Tamaron Country Club wedding day!  Their wedding was a blast!  Although they now live in Toledo, Amanda wanted to get married at the church she grew up in, St Michael’s Parish in Monroe, MI.  What a beautiful historical church for their backdrop!

St Michael Monroe MI wedding St Michael Monroe MI wedding

While Jared and the guys got ready at the church, Amanda and her bridemaids chose to get ready at their reception venue in Toledo.  Since they wanted to wait until the ceremony to see each other, they made it easy to take outdoor portraits being at separate locations!

Jared and Amanda recited their vows at St Michaels in Monroe, MI in front of their family and friends.  Amanda’s favorite wedding moment was the church doors opening and seeing Jared at the end of the aisle!  It was a beautiful entrance!

Jared and Amanda fell in love with Tamaron Country Club the moment they walked in the doors for their initial tour.  Amanda loved the vintage feel of the wood floors and fireplace.  And Vicky, the coordinator was so helpful to her and the bridesmaids on the wedding day.  She helped Amanda bustle her dress in just seconds before being announced by their DJ!

How incredibly special to continue the family tradition of the wedding ceremony at St. Joseph’s Church in Fremont Ohio.  Lauren’s parents and grandparents were married there!  So, it was the ideal location for Jason and Lauren’s special day.  And it was gorgeous!  Beautiful stained glass windows masking the cloudy sunlight to a beautiful yellow hue.  We’re so glad we were trusted to capture their wedding day when they were looking for wedding photography in Toledo Ohio.

Aaron and Andrea’s wedding day was absolutely perfect, even though it rained most of the day!  But, how romantic is that?  They say rain on the wedding day brings good fortune for the couple, anyway.  They chose St Joseph’s Church in Maumee, Ohio for their ceremony and St. Joseph’s in Sylvania, Ohio for their reception.  Both venues are stunning, but the deciding factor in choosing the church were the memories Andrea had there in Maumee going to school at St. Joseph.  And they loved how pretty the reception room was with a window over looking the beautiful scenery.  In fact, some of the wedding party were cracking us up from the window while we were outside later in the evening creating Aaron and Andrea’s romantic sunset portraits in the field below the window.  It was a fun wedding party!

The moment they both looked forward to the most on their wedding day was seeing each other for the first time and celebrating with their friends and family at the reception.  Even through all the normal stress of planning to make their day perfect, Aaron and Andrea loved that they learned to not sweat the small stuff and to just have fun!  They also said having great vendors to work with along the way was a must-have.  🙂

Josh + Alyssa

Toledo Engagement Photographer

Josh and Alyssa are the cutest couple together!  They definitely made my job easy by being so obviously in love with each other and with choosing such a great location for their engagement session.  Wildwood Park and the Manor House!  It was a dream combo for this Toledo engagement photographer!

Toledo engagement photographer

We just swoon over love stories!  Alyssa shares show their love story began:

“We met thanks to Josh’s friend Richie. In May of 2014, Josh had just arrived home from the Naval Academy on a month of summer leave. Richie invited Josh over to his house in Adrian for a bonfire.  Josh didn’t want to go at first, but was eventually persuaded into showing up. I had just graduated from Siena Heights University and was still living in Adrian at the time and was also friends with Richie. I, too, showed up at the bonfire at Richie’s house. Josh and I were introduced and spent time talking around the fire. About a week later, we exchanged numbers, talked, and hung out the rest of the time Josh was home on leave. When he had to report back to the Academy, we still kept in touch through text and video chats. In July of 2014, we decided to make the relationship official.”

And how did he propose?  Josh has been stationed in Mayport, Florida.  He took a leave during March to visit Alyssa, which was right between his and her birthdays.  Alyssa loves soccer, so he planned a weekend getaway trip to Chicago to watch the Columbus Crew play the Chicago Fire.  Before heading out of town for their weekend, Josh got down on one knee and asked Alyssa to be his forever.  And of course, she said, “yes!”  And now they are planning a beautiful winter wedding at Nazareth Hall in Grand Rapids, Ohio. Engagement photographer in Toledo Engagement photographer in Toledo Engagement photographer in Toledo Engagement photographer in Toledo Toledo engagement photographer engagement-photographers-in-toledo-009_mini

The moment Alyssa and Josh are looking forward to the most on their wedding day?  Their first dance as husband and wife and having a great time on the dance floor with their friends and family!  We cannot wait to be a part of their day!

Sarah, Class of 2017 | Horse Farm Senior Pictures in Toledo

Sarah is amazing!  She’s smart, beautiful, and talented!  Also, she’s one of our Senior Models and we loved that she wanted her senior pictures in Toledo with her horse, Lee.  They competed together in a recent fair and did really well.  Congratulations, Sarah!

We love doing photography at new locations, especially if it has a special meaning to our seniors or clients.  The farm where Sarah boards her horse was a fun world to step into; away from the city surrounded by beautiful scenery and majestic animals.  It was perfect for Sarah!  And she was completely in her element!

Adam’s Downtown Toledo Session

Adam is an amazing senior who has an appreciation for adventure and life.  Super friendly and incredibly smart.  This guy is going places!  When choosing locations for senior pictures Toledo Ohio, downtown Toledo was the obvious choice.  Urban, edgy, and fun!

One of our favorite locations is along the Maumee River with the high rise bridge spanning the background. With the sunlight spilling in, it was the perfect summer day.  Originally, we started there.  Then we drove a few blocks north to a more edgy location.
