Downtown Toledo Coffee Shop Engagement Photography

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’!

Kevin and Jaime tied the knot earlier this month at their Park Inn Toledo wedding in downtown Toledo.  It was gorgeous!  The girls got ready in their suite at the hotel; you could feel the excitement in the air!

And they are married!  The Sacred Heart Church was a gorgeous setting for their ceremony.  After family portraits, we cleared out the sanctuary for some portraits of just the bride and groom.

Josh & Nahdia | Hensville Wedding Photography in Toledo Ohio

Impeccable and “out of this world” are two ways to describe the Lewis’ baseball themed wedding day!  Everything ran smoothly, thanks to April and her gals at Your Perfect Day and Angie with Hensville.  Originally, it didn’t start that way.  There were a few major bumps in the road, including their first venue closing their doors after they booked it.   Their rehearsal dinner location also closed and cancelled their reservation just 3 days before they were supposed to host it.  This couple is authentically classy for  handling everything so well, which made them the perfect couple to be interviewed for TV Channel NBC 24!  The news crew came out for their roof-top ceremony, which was Hensville’s first, and caught a quick interview with them before they headed in to join the reception.  You can catch it here: http://nbc24.com/news/local/local-couple-ties-the-knot-atop-hensville  It was so fun to be a part of their day as the debut ceremony for Hensville wedding photography in Toledo Ohio!

Both Josh and Nahdia’s moment they looked forward to the most was seeing each other “finally”, as Nahdia says.  All the anticipation of getting ready and months of planning officially end by saying, “I do”.  Nahdia shared that one of her most treasured moments was the planned Sunset Portraits.  It was a beautiful and quiet moment for them away from the crowds and music.  Future brides, here’s a tip from this one: Relax and just have fun on your day!  If there are hiccups along the way, just roll with it.  As long as you both are together, that’s all that matters!

Lily’s senior pictures in downtown Toledo and Wildwood Park were so much fun!  This beautiful lady was so graceful in front of the camera that she could be a model!  When deciding on locations for her senior portraits, she loved having the option for 2 different settings: an urban downtown Toledo and a beautiful garden.  I’m not sure which setting is our favorite, because she perfectly fit both!  Congrats on your senior year in high school!  And thank you for choosing JH Photography for your Toledo senior pictures… we loved capturing this amazing time for you to always remember!

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’!

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!  🙂

Mike and Brianne: Engaged!

{Toledo Engagement Photographer}

Mike and Brianne are so fun and I’m even more excited to be working with them after getting to know them a little better from their engagement session.  Being a Toledo engagement photographer is a blast!  They selected downtown Toledo for their engagement portraits, and their story of why is really unique.  Brianne had already fell in love with bright red as part of her wedding day color scheme, but didn’t know what accent color she wanted to add to it.  While driving downtown she saw the roof of the Owens Corning bridge rise over the top of Washington Ave at the corner of Summit.  Malibu blue!  It was the perfect contrast for her wedding colors! So naturally, when we were discussing locations for their engagement photo session, downtown Toledo was the place to go!

Mike and Brianne, I can’t wait to be a part of your wedding day in downtown Toledo!

Clara + Mike = Engaged!

Everything happens for a reason!  Clara met Mike during some extra free time she had while applying for a new career.  Their love endured through a long distance relationship until Mike eventually moved out to Pennsylvania to be with her.  And now they are engaged and ready to spend the rest of their lives together!  I’m so thrilled to be a part of their wedding day and to be their engagement photographer in Toledo Ohio.

Mike and Clara are so fun together and I had a blast photographing their engagement photo session in downtown Toledo.  Downtown offers so many versatile looks, from brick walls, empty buildings, new modern architecture… Plus, the Maumee River and the bridges are unique backgrounds for any love session!   Didn’t they choose the best coordinating shirts?  I love their outfits and color patterns against the red brick!Engagement Photographer in Toledo Ohio 005 Engagement Photographer in Toledo Ohio 007 Engagement Photographer in Toledo Ohio 006 Engagement Photographer in Toledo Ohio 008 Toledo Engagement Photographer 001 Another one of our favorite spots in downtown for Toledo engagement photos!  You’d never know we were in the middle of  the downtown area!Engagement Photographer in Toledo Ohio 009 Engagement Photographer in Toledo Ohio 010
