Andrew + Emily | Toledo Engagement Pictures

Andrew and Emily’s love story began on Match.com.  Best membership fee they ever paid!  Andrew had an account active for 7 months, but Emily had only been on a week when they met.  Their first date was at El Zarape Restaurant in Bowling Green, and then they went bowling together afterwards.  Emily was actually on the bowling league in college, and eventually Andrew started traveling with her during league games.  They were inseparable!  And now they are planning their wedding and the rest of their lives together!  For their Toledo engagement pictures, they choose Toledo’s beautiful Wildwood Metropark.  Now that fall is almost at an end, it’s the perfect time to share their session they had with JH Photography lead photographer, Jon!

How did Andrew propose?  It was so romantic!  He invited Emily along on his family’s vacation to San Diego.  His family helped him plan a “family photo shoot” on the beach with a photographer.  Then he dropped down on one knee and asked Emily to be his forever.  She said yes!  Toledo Engagement Pictures Toledo Engagement Pictures Toledo Engagement Pictures

Aren’t they just so adorable together!  We can’t wait for their wedding day next year!Toledo Engagement Pictures Toledo Engagement Pictures

Congratulations again, Andrew and Emily!  Thank you for choosing JH Photography to capture your love story!

Jared + Amanda | Tamaron Country Club Wedding

Jared and Amanda have such a fun energy about them, which of course, followed them for their Tamaron Country Club wedding day!  Their wedding was a blast!  Although they now live in Toledo, Amanda wanted to get married at the church she grew up in, St Michael’s Parish in Monroe, MI.  What a beautiful historical church for their backdrop!

While Jared and the guys got ready at the church, Amanda and her bridemaids chose to get ready at their reception venue in Toledo.  Since they wanted to wait until the ceremony to see each other, they made it easy to take outdoor portraits being at separate locations!

Jared and Amanda recited their vows at St Michaels in Monroe, MI in front of their family and friends.  Amanda’s favorite wedding moment was the church doors opening and seeing Jared at the end of the aisle!  It was a beautiful entrance!

Jared and Amanda fell in love with Tamaron Country Club the moment they walked in the doors for their initial tour.  Amanda loved the vintage feel of the wood floors and fireplace.  And Vicky, the coordinator was so helpful to her and the bridesmaids on the wedding day.  She helped Amanda bustle her dress in just seconds before being announced by their DJ!

When Mike and Brianne were looking for the perfect wedding venue for their Toledo wedding, they fell in love with the Grand Plaza Hotel.  They could have their ceremony outdoors by the reflecting pond without their guests feeling like they were ‘downtown’, and some of the hotel’s decor matched their wedding colors!  We loved their red and Malibu blue color scheme, which looked amazing for their wedding photography!Toledo wedding photographyThe Grand Plaza and weather was perfect for their wedding day.grand plaza hotel downtown toledo weddingToledo wedding photographyToledo wedding photographyToledo wedding photographyToledo wedding photography

Brianne, of course, was a stunning bride!  With all the crazy planning that goes into a wedding, we asked her if there were any tips for future brides.  She says not to order programs according to your guest count, unless it’s a fan for outdoor ceremonies.  Most guests come as a couple and they ended up with 80+ extra programs!  Great tip!

Both Mike and Brianne said that one of their most treasured moments of the wedding day was having the live music and dancing.  Their band, “The Websters” from Cincinnati, were amazing and kept their dance floor full all night long!

Michael and Casey’s Holiday Inn French Quarter wedding was simply beautiful!  They were married at St. Richard Church in Swanton before celebrating their reception at the Holiday Inn French Quarter in Perrysburg, Ohio.  The bridemaids’ soft muted dresses really made their purple bouquets stand out and we sure had a lot of fun capturing the colors!

Scott and Katie’s Toledo wedding was a dream from start to finish!  The weather reported 80% chance of rain, but it held off for their special day.  Spotty weather in this area is something that Toledo wedding photographers have learned to work with, but we were so happy it turned out nice!  They were married in the church that Katie grew up in, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Temperance, Michigan.  The tall windows in the sanctuary let in soft beautiful light for their ceremony… it was so perfect that they kept the sanctuary lights off!

{Capturing Love in 2014}

With New Years Eve finally here, it’s been so fun reminiscing back on the year.  2014 has brought us so many blessings, including the opportunity to work with such fabulous couples that trusted us with the biggest day of their lives.  The best part of being a wedding photographer is being involved with each bride and groom from the initial consultation, engagement session, and finally, the wedding day!  We’ve laughed, cried, and rejoiced with so many little moments our couples shared with us.  Tearful ‘First Looks’, fathers seeing their little girl all dressed up, the first kiss as husband and wife… Amazing memories that you’ll now get to cherish and share for generations to come through your portraits.  Thank you to each one who chose us to be your Toledo wedding photographers.  We love you and we wish you all a very happy and prosperous new year!

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!

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!
