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.

Sara and Rob’s Wildwood Park Photo Session

{Toledo Engagement Photography}

I’ve been dying to feature Sara and Rob’s engagement session on our blog!  Their Toledo engagement photography session was the perfect blend of love, fall weather, and a fabulous sunset that would make any wedding photographer weak at the knees!  While Wildwood Metropark has lots to offer for background scenery, we decided to focus on  just one beautiful spot in one of their overgrown fields.  It’s here where all the magic happened for their photo session while we waited on the sunset.

Sara, I just LOVE this portrait of you!  You are so stunning!

We love to use a mixture of lighting techniques to create a wide variety of portraits.  Sara and Rob’s Wildwood Park photo session featured both natural light photography (using only the sunlight) and studio light with the sunset (Yes!  We bring an armload of lighting gear from our studio).  The resulting combo?  Extraordinary and lovely images!

Mulkey Family {Family Pictures in Toledo Ohio}

Mulkey Family {Family Pictures in Toledo Ohio}

We really are fortunate to have so many beautiful metroparks for family pictures in Toledo, Ohio.  Did you know that Toledo has 11 metroparks?  When the Mulkey family reached out to our studio for Toledo family portraits, we discussed a few of the location options.  We settled on Wildwood Park because of the variety of scenery and because the park is dog friendly.  Although their plans changed last minute to not include their pets, Wildwood proved to be the perfect location for them!  The flowers at the garden by the Manor House were in bloom, and they got a chance to frolic a little bit in a grassy field!  How fun is that?

Family Pictures in Toledo Ohio 001_mini Family Pictures in Toledo Ohio 002_mini Family Photographers in Toledo Ohio 002Aren’t they a cute family?  We love to include a variety of poses with different backgrounds for family pictures.  All of the family together, siblings together, just parents, and individual children portraits.  For young families, we recommend updating family portraits at least every 2 years.  And every 3 years for families with adult children; and more frequent if they are adding to the family!  We love to watch families grow!  And family pictures in Toledo, Ohio can be so creative and fun with our metroparks.

This is one of my favorite images from their family session.  So much personality in this image with their son looking back over his shoulder!  I love it!

Thank you Mulkey family for choosing JH Photography!  It was a pleasure to meet you all and to create some lasting memories!

Paul & Xochilt {Couple’s Session, Wildwood Park in Toledo}

Paul and Xochilt are just the cutest couple!  I knew from the moment we met at Wildwood Park in Toledo that their photography session would be fun.  Paul is every bit the gentleman around her; he naturally would cup her chin with his hand or brush her hair out of her face with me even prompting!  And it was very windy, so it really helped!  And Xochilt was so cute with her dress and boots… and I LOVED her side-braid!

Thank you Paul and Xochilt for choosing me for your Toledo photography session!  It was such a pleasure to meet you both and I wish you both the VERY BEST for 2014!

Special Edition Mini Session: Spring Lamb!

Oh, my goodness!!!  This adorable little girl and lamb were just too cute together!   A big thanks to the Indian Creek Camel Farm in L-A-M-B-ertville, too.  It was the perfect backdrop… complete with camels walking in the background!   This session was followed up with a day full of mini sessions 2 Saturdays later: our first set of our Special Edition Series!  More to come throughout the year, and a great way for some unique portraits with different themes!

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!







Caitlin + John-Claude = Engaged!

John-Claude proposed to Caitlin at Central Park in NYC.  And since they are getting married here in Toledo, what better place to go for their engagement session but to Wildwood Park??  Not quite Central Park, but definitely worth standing on its own – with the carefully manicured lawns, the Manor House, woodsy trails, and private garden.  Congratulations to you both!

Samantha + William = Engaged!

I could not have been more excited for these two!  They were so adorable together, and we had a blast during their engagement session at Wildwood Park in Toledo.  With their wedding only a month away, we took advantage of the crisp green colors of the garden and surrounding fields to capture their love story.
