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!

Evelyn Turns 1 {Baby Photographer in Toledo Ohio}

Eveyln Turns 1 {Baby Photographer in Toledo Ohio}

Oh, my gosh!  This little darling is so adorable!  She was all smiles for her baby portrait session: Cake smash and bubble bath time!  This session was so fun to plan!  Being a baby photographer in Toledo Ohio has it’s challenges with the weather, but it was perfect this day for a few outdoor pictures.  We actually offer this special session right in the parents’ own home.  We bring the studio and props to you!  It’s been our experience that babies are more comfortable in their familiar surroundings than in our studio.  Plus, it’s easier to clean up with a sink nearby!

It’s been such an honor capturing baby Evelyn during her first year milestones!  Not having any children of my own, yet, it amazes me just how quickly babies learn new motor skills… lifting their head, rolling over, crawling, walking…etc.  Evelyn is getting her first teeth in and is now walking everywhere!

Planning for outfits for a baby portrait session is important, too.  Don’t you just love this handmade skirt Evelyn’s mom found on Etsy!Baby Photographer in Toledo ohio Baby pictures in Toledo ohio

Such a cute image!  Taken just moments before she dove into her birthday cake!  She loved the frosting!www.thealbumcafe.com

One of my favorite parts of the cake smash for baby’s first birthday pictures, is creating a composite of all the images and details!  This cute storyboard is perfect for both print or canvas!Baby Photographer in Toledo ohio

And of course, fun clean-up time with a bubble bath!  Happy first birthday Evelyn!  You are such a sweetie to capture, always smiling and laughing!

Mr. & Mrs. Roznoski: A Nazareth Hall Dream Wedding! {Toledo Photographer}

Mark and Robyn’s wedding day was perfect!  Sunny, blue skies – trees and flowers finally all bloomed – and Grand Rapid’s exquisite Nazareth Hall.  After getting ready in the bridal suite, Robyn made her way down the spiral stairs to the front of the Cadet West windows, where her husband-to-be was waiting with anticipation for their “First Look”.  It was amazing!  They hugged, they kissed, they laughed, and I’m pretty sure I saw some tears.

They recited their vows in front of family and friends in the Grotto, the outside chapel, before being whisked away to a fun night of dancing and celebration in Cadet West.  The setting sun poured through the western facing windows, creating a romantic glow for the newly-married couple.  I can’t wait to publish their private online gallery!

Nazareth Hall is Toledo’s favorite wedding venue, and one of my top favorite places to photograph couples and families.  The wedding photography here can be photographed like non other!   And the amazing staff and chef know how to pamper couples as they relax in the serene atmosphere and prepare for their happily ever after!  www.nazarethhall.com Music and entertainment was provided by Bob Norris of www.classactbybobnorris.com

Mark + Robyn = Engaged! {a Sidecut Park Session, Toledo Wedding Photographer}

Mark and Robyn are the perfect match!  It’s been sooo much fun getting to know them both over the past few months!  When it came time to schedule their engagement session, Robyn knew exactly were she wanted it:  Sidecut Metro Park in Maumee, Ohio.  And what a great choice!  We had to reschedule their session twice due to rain… third time is a charm, right?  The day was as charming as these two were together!  Congratulations to you both and I can’t wait until your wedding day at Nazareth Hall!

Sam + Ryann = Engaged! {a downtown Toledo photography session}

Their love story reminds me of something Nicolas Sparks would write about.  They met each other while on vacation in Mexico;  Sam was from Minnesota, and Ryann was a Toledo girl.  Even after their vacation was over, they kept in touch over long distance, and then Ryann eventually moved to Minnesota.  I LOVE it!  What are the odds of them planning a vacation at the exactly same time, same place, and then meeting each other?  That’s true love’s fate, if you ask me!  And now they are engaged and getting married!  I can’t wait for their wedding!

We planned their engagement session around their vacation back to Toledo.  I met Sam for the first time during their session.  Their connection with each other is so sweet!  I just loved capturing it all behind camera!  Here’s a few from their downtown Toledo session…

Chris and Kathleen’s styled photography session was so fun!  They both LOVE mystery novels, so we featured Ukazoo Bookstore in their Toledo engagement session.  {A-Mazing store…if you’re in the Toledo area or visiting, this store is a MUST to visit!!  Great book variety, and super friendly and helpful staff.}   Pictures are worth a thousand words…so enjoy reading their love story in the following images!  Congratulations you two!

Shayne + Jessica = Engaged!

These two have got to be one of the cutest couples ever!   And their session also happened to be on one of the last perfect days before the wintery white season.   We photographed their engagement session here in Toledo at the Botanical Gardens…(one of my fav locations for fall) and captured their love for each other on a background from a palette of yellow and orange.  Simply beautiful!  I can’t wait until next fall…when their photographs will be of them on their wedding day!!!!

Mariah: 2013 Senior

Mariah…what a beautiful name to go with such a beautiful girl!   Mariah chose Wildwood Park in Toledo for her senior portraits.  It was the perfect day, too!  Full of sunshine and autumn colors.  We didn’t have to walk very far to start her session –  this first image was taken by the tree we parked our cars by!  The leaves were hanging down just enough for me use the color to frame her pose.   I love fall!  Her spring session will soon follow this post!
