Toledo Wedding Photography | Firefighter Wedding

It was so fun to be a part of David and Erica’s Firefighter wedding on New Years Eve!  What a party; they thought of every detail and we’re so glad that we were their choice of Toledo wedding photography! It truly was an honor!  And we love how they met- on match.com!  David forgot that he had auto renewal set up for his match.com account, so he logged in when he saw that he was billed again.  And there was beautiful Erica’s profile, who had just joined a few days earlier.  They connected and the rest is history!

David and Erica are an amazing couple: the moment you see them together, you know they were meant for each other!  And it was so obvious on their wedding day as they were getting ready.  The anticipation of seeing each other in only a few short hours was exciting and the time flew by!

With winter hours of limited sunlight, it was already dark outside after their ceremony.  We had planned ahead for some creative portraits, though!  David and his father are part of the downtown Toledo firefighter department, so we were thrilled to shoot at their fire station for them!

For their reception, David and Erica planned the entire reception to bring in the new year with their friends and family.  They even had a live stream of the ball drop in New York City going!

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!

David and Erica: Engaged! Toledo Barn Portraits

David and Erica: Engaged!

Toledo Barn Portraits

David and Erica are engaged!  And they are getting married at the end of this year… as in the last day this year!  New Year’s Eve!  For their engagement portraits, they found a barn owned by a friend to use for their location since it had begun raining.  Their Toledo barn portraits turned out so fun and amazing! What a fun session with them and David’s daughter, Ava.

David and Erica met on match.com.  Erica had only been a member for a week and David had forgotten about his account.  When his account sent him a notice that it automatically renewed, he logged in and saw Erica’s profile.  They met for lunch and then went bowling the next evening.  It was meant to be!

Toledo Family Photographer FirefighterToledo Family Photographer Firefighter

How did he propose?  It’s such a cute story!  It was winter and David insisted that Erica get bundled up after a long day at work and go with him to see “The Lights” at the Toledo Zoo.  She agreed and they headed out.  David knew that Erica had said in the past that if he proposed, she didn’t want a lot of people around, so when David got to the zoo, he had trouble finding a quiet spot amongst the crowds.  At one point, he thought he found a nice little corner by a big tree, but as they walked around the walk, another guy was down on his knee proposing.  Talk about pressure as if David wasn’t already a little nervous!  He did eventually find the perfect place and talked Erica into taking a ‘selfie’ with him, and then he dropped down on a knee and asked her to be his wife.  Of course, she said, “Yes”!

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’!

We are so happy for Steve and Nikki!  They are welcoming a new member to their family next month and wanted a maternity portrait session to capture this special time for them.  And, even more exciting is that they kept the gender of the baby a secret… even they don’t know!

Their maternity pictures were featured at Steve’s parents’ home in Michigan.  With it being near the end of winter, we were lucky to have both some beautiful snow and sunshine!  Congratulations to you both!

{Senior Pictures in Toledo Ohio}

We were so thrilled to meet Patrick for his senior pictures in Toledo Ohio!  Smart, good-looking, and cultured!  When he mentioned the Toledo Museum of Art as a possible location for his outdoor portraits, I knew it was going to be another fun senior session.  Patrick has been very involved with the art community both at school and the museum, so it was the perfect fit for him.  After checking in with the museum staff for permission to shoot portraits inside, we found our way upstairs to one of his favorite galleries.

Drew was so fun to work with for her senior pictures in Toledo!  She selected our Sixty Session, and also our professional makeup artist add-on.  Amy, our preferred makeup artist, comes right to the studio with her glam chair and makeup bag. (And when I say bag, I mean a suitcase-big bag!  Amy has everything a girl could ever need!)  We started off Drew’s portraits inside our Toledo photography studio with our various sets, and then headed just outside the studio doors for the rest of her session.  It was such a beautiful day, and with her guitar prop, we wanted some unique images taken in our exotic garden.  Didn’t Drew rock her senior portraits!?

What an amazing day for Dave and Lindsay!  Their Heatherdowns Country Club wedding was amazing, and so perfect for the two avid golfers!  Their ceremony was held outdoors on the 10th tee with the beautiful course as their backdrop.  It was gorgeous!  The wedding party also had a blast riding golf carts from the club’s entrance to the back of the ceremony site before walking down the aisle.  (The girls drove and the groomsmen held the bouquets!)  It was sure fun being a part of their big day as their Toledo wedding photographer!

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!

Lindsay’s Bridal Session

I’m so glad we get the chance to share Lindsay’s bridal session now that she’s officially Mrs. Alverman!  She and Dave tied the knot this past Saturday at the Heatherdowns Country Club in Toledo.  (But, those photos will come later!)  Lindsay was just gorgeous to get to photograph!  Her amazing hair was styled by Brookelyn Hauck from “The Look”, and her makeup by Allison of Nrgie Salon and Spa.  What a dynamic combo!  And a big thanks to Gina Gueli of Heatherdowns Country Club for working with Lindsay’s wedding crew’s schedule for her session!  Getting 5+ people on the same schedule is no easy task!

Lindsay chose to include a bridal session, which is one of our popular wedding package add-ons.  A bridal session is the perfect opportunity to trial run your wedding day attire and makeup!  Plus, what bride wouldn’t want a special session just focused on her wedding look and gown?  You can trial run your makeup, hair, and dress alterations all while having some fun!  It rained us out, but the Heatherdowns Country Club in Toledo was the perfect indoor location.  Not only did we keep her gown spotless, but their decor offered some stunning and unique areas for portraits!  And Lindsay, you are seriously such a beautiful bride!
