Josh and Nahdia: Engaged!

Toledo Engagement Photographers

Wow!  This session for Josh and Nahdia was so fun and at a unique location that wouldn’t have happened if it hadn’t been such a rainy day.  But, go figure, after we started the session indoors, it quit raining.  Toledo engagement photographers really had some challenges with this year’s constantly changing weather!

Josh and Nahdia’s love story is one woven in time.  They’ve known each other for over 11 years, but they hit if off while working together at Toledo’s Gladieux Lumbar Yard on Route 2 in Oregon.  Nahdia was a junior in high school, and Josh worked out in the lumbar yard.  Their first date was to a Mudhen’s game, which is so perfect!  Being avid baseball fans, they made a goal while dating to visit all 30 US stadiums.  So far, they’ve been to Atlanta, Pittsburg, Boston, Chicago, and Detroit.  Josh knew when they were planning their trip to Boston that he would ask the love of his life to marry him.  And there, right in front of Fenway Stadium in Boston, he got down on one knee.  And she said, ‘yes!’, of course!

Scott and Katie’s wedding is right around the corner!  Next month, they’ll be saying “I do” at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and hosting their reception at the lovely Central Park West.  We can’t wait!  As a downtown Toledo photographer, we were so excited when they chose an urban look for their engagement session.  Downtown Toledo offers so many unique portrait locations, and with our lighting and posing style, the urban look is amazing for a ‘love’ session!

A little snow didn’t keep us from venturing outdoors… but Scott and Katie were snuggling to keep warm!

I love to ask about the proposal!  And what a romantic one!  Scott had taken Katie to the beautiful Toledo Botanical Gardens for a date through the sculpted nursery.  They had been there a few years earlier together and had taken a picture together under the weeping willow, so Scott prompted them to take another picture of themselves while they were there.  As they walked out from underneath the tree, Scott knelt down on one knee and asked the love of his life to marry him.  And Katie said ‘yes’!

It was such a perfect day for Matthew and Holly’s engagement session in downtown Toledo.  Warm and sunny!  This Toledo photographer LOVES shooting in the Glass City’s downtown area, so I was excited when they picked that location for their engagement pictures.  We hit a popular busy side street first, and then a few alleyways in the warehouse district.  Painted and peeling brick and old wood- absolutely a must!  Then we headed towards the Maumee River for a more modern-urban look.  Downtown just offers so many varieties of backgrounds, which fit Matthew and Holly perfectly since their August wedding will be in downtown Toledo.  Matthew and Holly are amazing together!  And I can’t wait until later this summer when they tie the knot at the Grand Plaza!

Pamela: Downtown Toledo Fashion Shoot {Toledo Photography}

Pamela: Downtown Toledo Fashion Shoot

{Toledo Photography}

Did you ever meet someone that was just as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside?  That’s Pamela!  Gorgeous looks, a high sense of fashion, and a beautiful personality. When the Toledo City Paper contacted Pamela about featuring her in an upcoming fashion article, we both immediately thought of downtown Toledo as the perfect location for her session.  And it was!  Downtown Toledo fashion shoots are always a blast with the urban look, and somewhat desolate appearance of empty buildings that makes Toledo photography so artistic.  Within a few blocks, Pamela had portraits in front of everything from boarded-up buildings, trash-heaps, and graffiti walls.  And the effect was amazing with her stellar look and wardrobe!

For her fashion shoot, Pamela focused on one outfit with 4 different looks.  She styled a turtle-neck halter top black dress designed by Kamalikulture with first a jean jacket, then solo, then with a velvet evening shawl, and finally with midwestern accessories.  I can’t wait to read her featured article in Style Sense, which will be written by Jordan Killam.  (Jordan is an amazing journalist who features local Toledo-ans who have a great sense of fashion.)  Pamela will be featured in a few weeks, so stay tuned!  We’ll announce when it’s printed!

Abdi’s Music Cover Session, Toledo Photographer

Abdi will be the next big R&B artist from Toledo!  I just know it!!!  With his style and personality, I know he’ll go a long way!   Abdi shared his vision for the session theme, and we came up with some really cool places to photograph at in downtown Toledo.  It’s going to be a tough decision to only pick one cover image!  🙂  Which is your favorite???








Dustyn + Stephanie = Engaged!

We had so much fun photographing these two!  They chose an evening session, and we began right before sunset to capture those beautiful rays of sunlight behind them.  Starting out at the Toledo Amtrak Station, they hopped onto the tracks (with us constantly looking over our shoulders!) where we photographed these cute images portraying their new love together!  *No trains, either!  Looking forward to their summer wedding!!!
