Timothy and Kimberly

This Saturday wedding in March turned out lovely! And forget about the rain! It threatened to pour, but held off enough for us to head outside for a few group shots after the ceremony.  My favorite moment of the day was watching Tim and Kim seeing each other for the first time as she walked down the aisle!  All the wedding planning for months on end…all for this special moment!

The Grand Plaza Hotel team was fantastic! Heather, the catering manager, coordinated everything so well and had the day running smoothly! And take a look at these reception decorations!  Jamie and her co-workers at Candlelight Occasions did a fantastic job designing the hall…it looked so glamorous!

The beautiful bouquets and boutonnieres came from In Bloom Florist, right off the main street in downtown Maumee.   (If you want an amazing florist, I always recommend these girls – They do amazing work with their floral designs!)  Duran Duran provided the music, and photoboothlive.com kept the evening fun!

Getting ready for Tim and Kim’s Wedding Tomorrow!

I’m so excited to be a part of Tim and Kimberly’s wedding!  It’ll be at the Grand Plaza (formally known as the Crowne Plaza) in Toledo…and what a beautiful wedding it will be!  I had a chance to meet with Tim and their wedding coordinator, Heather, at the Plaza a few months ago (actually, was it just last month!?!) to look over their venue.  There are so many opportunities, just inside their lobby, with the nice open lighting of the wall-length windows!  Plus, not to mention the infamous water fountain and the fact that the venue is right off the Maumee River.  Rain or shine…shhhhh…*whispering*…the forecast does say rain…  But, rain or shine – there are so many great locations there for some amazing portraits.  Best wishes to this wonderful couple!  I can’t wait to blog some of their wedding photos.

A Little About Me…

About the PhotographerI was born and raised in a small town in Arkansas (yes, I still love being barefooted!) and moved to Ohio after graduating college.  My dad gave me my first little point-and-shoot camera was I was 12.  My first client was my little brother, which I posed outside on our back porch on a bathroom-rug-covered-exercise-step.  (Somehow the blue rug really didn’t blend with the backyard greenery!)  But, that’s how I started!  I upgraded to my first 35mm film SLR camera when I was 17, and started shooting sessions and weddings (without any blue rugs!) throughout college.  Now, 10 years later with a busy photography business in Sylvania, Ohio, I have extended my service area to Michigan, Ohio, Canada, and Indiana (I occasionally return to Arkansas for past clients).

I am a LIFE and LOVE photographer. The LIFE aspect covers all events of life, from maternity and newborn, to children, senior, and family photography.  And LOVE, of course, includes my engagement sessions and wedding photography.  My favorite?  Ahhhh…I can never choose!  I love the {ART} of photography- the lighting, capturing the emotion, individuality- it’s all amazing to me!

Welcome to My First Blog! (Ever!)

I’ve never been one to sit for hours and post things about myself online… but, here I am beginning my first blog!  🙂  At least this page won’t be ALL about me – and I’m sure I’ll find plenty to post regarding session photography!   I hope you enjoy it: in the next few days I’ll be uploading some session and wedding photography.  So stay posted!!
