Yesterday Allison and Murphy celebrated their 1 month anniversary! I can’t believe it’s already been a month since their beautiful wedding in Downtown Toledo. We started the day over at Beauty Bar Salon and Spa were the girls were pampered with hair & make-up (everyone looked so gorgeous!). After that we headed over to get […]

You know it’s going to be a great day when the Bride and Groom are true High School Sweethearts.  I heard stories of how Jennifer & Jared’s past shaped their relationship and allowed them to grow as individuals as well as an amazing couple. I remember talking with Jennifer in the week leading up to […]

It’s always a fun time when I get to work with this family.  Along with being friends,  I’ve been taking their photos for about 4 1/2 years.  Seeing the kids grow and comparing photos from previous photo sessions is one of my favorite things to do.  We usually do fall sessions, so this time we […]

I’m so happy to bring you the sneak peek blog post for Ashley + Josh’s big day at NINE at Hensville here in Toledo, OH.  Their day was absolutely perfect in every way.  The ladies and the guys got to spend the morning getting ready in Suites at the Mudhens stadium with views of the […]

This wedding holds a special place in my heart because Ashley is my cousin. Well, really my husbands cousin, but it’s ok, I claim her too! 😉 I met Ashley back in college shortly after I met Brad (my husband). So she has see us and been there for us from the very beginning. I […]

Ashley+Wes were married on August 26th at the groom’s family farm in Pemberville, OH.  The entire day was full of love, laughter and lots of fun!  After a morning of getting ready, a trolley drove the bridal party to the ceremony location while the brides brothers escorted her to say her I Do’s. I loved […]

August 19th was a perfect summer day for Tasha+ Jason’s big day.  After the Bride and her ladies finished hair & makeup at Marilyn’s Hair Styles in Brooklyn, MI,  I met them at Meckley’s Flavor Fruit Farms in Somerset Center, MI.  It was so nice to be back in my home state passing through familiar areas where […]

Heather, Nick and I met quite a ways back for their consultation. They were checking things off of their wedding “to-do” list rather quickly so we scheduled their engagement session right away! They told me that the University of Toledo was where they wanted to start their session, little did I know that the campus […]

Nadine + Kyle were married on July 29th and it was one of the most gorgeous summer days.  I met the ladies early in the morning for hair and makeup and then we headed over to Schedel Gardens to get ready.  Special thanks to Brittany at Brittany P Photography for getting the guys photos and 2nd shooting […]

When Pat and Kate were married, it was December at 4pm.  Needless to say, after the ceremony it was completely dark outside.  Their winter wonderland wedding was a dream, however all of their photos had to be taken indoors.  Kate and I have talked for quite some time now about how she wanted new, nice […]
