Mindy’s Bridal Session | Wedding Photographers in Toledo Ohio

Mindy’s Bridal Session | Wedding Photographers in Toledo Ohio

Mindy is the type of girl that everyone wants to be around; beautiful, caring, and always smiling.  And now she is spending the rest of her life with Jimmy by her side!  Mindy’s bridal session was over a month ago and featured at the beautiful Heather Downs Country Club (one of our favorite venues as wedding photographers in Toledo, Ohio) where they later held their reception.  (They were married a little over a week ago, so we can share these now!) Wedding day timelines rarely, if ever, allow for a full hour with just the bride, so a Bridal Session is perfect for those brides who wish to get some creative portraits in their gown before the big day.  Plus, Mindy got to trial out her makeup and hair style!  Isn’t she stunning?  The details in her gown and jewelry were perfect!

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 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!

It was COLD for Kristina and David’s engagement session at Wildwood Park in Toledo, but you’d never guess from their portraits!  Their love for each other is so obvious and adorable; it radiated from them.  We started their session in one of Wildwood’s gorgeous fields, and then wrapped up by the Manor House.  They were so fun to work with, and we are looking forward to their fall wedding at the stellar Heatherdowns Country Club!  David and Kristina, we’re so excited to be your Toledo wedding photographer!

I have to stop here and just say that their outfit choices were perfect for their location!  We love it when couples dress to coordinate with each other, but not too match-y.

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!

Emily & Mike: Still In Love Session {Toledo Wedding Photographer}

Emily & Mike: Still In Love Session {Toledo Wedding Photographer}

Emily and Mike are coming up on their 3rd wedding anniversary!  It’s so hard to believe that their wedding day was just 3 years ago here in the Glass City!  It was a beautiful day, too.  Emily was married in the same church as her parents, and they had an antique pink car that whisked them away after the ceremony.  The best part about being a wedding photographer in Toledo, is staying in contact with our fabulous couples.  When I mentioned to Emily that we were thinking of offering a brand new session for our previous wedding clients, she loved the idea and we planned everything out!  A “Still In Love” session is a chance for a couple to celebrate their love again by wearing their wedding attire one more time!  It’s the perfect idea for an anniversary gift to yourselves!  Get all dolled up again and spend an hour at one of our metropark locations with your favorite Toledo wedding photographer!  We’ll bring the lighting and special effects, and you bring the suit, gown, and romance!Toledo Wedding Photographer 016Mike and Emily’s session was featured at Wildwood Park, located right off Central Ave.  Since this was also their wedding portrait location, it was the perfect choice for their anniversary!  We had taken their pictures in front of the Manor House, but this time we opted for a beautiful field on the other end of the park.  Toledo Wedding Photographer 002The sunset looks so warm and inviting, but it was actually on the chilly side with some wind!  Kudos to Mike and Emily for braving the cold for some stunning portraits to add to their collection!

Toledo Wedding Photographer 001Toledo Wedding Photographer 004And remember the story of Snow White and all of her little forest animal friends?  There was a herd of deer in the field where we were photographing, and one was so curious with Emily in her beautiful wedding gown that it actually came within several feet of her! And now Emily has her prince charming… fairy tales really do come true!

Don’t you just LOVE Emily’s wedding dress?  She had it custom made right here in Toledo for her wedding day!Toledo Wedding Photographer 006 Toledo Wedding Photographer 007 Toledo Wedding Photographer 008

Here you can really see Emily’s gown details.  I love how it’s gathered to the side and the train flows from there down.  Beautiful!

We set up their appointment around sunset time to get that golden glow, and then wrapped up their portraits at a second location that allows fireworks.  YES!  FIREWORKS! Toledo Wedding Photographer 009Thank you Mike and Emily, not only for choosing JH Photography as your Toledo wedding photographer, but for letting us showcase your love once more through Still In Love portraits!  Happy anniversary and here’s to many, many more!
