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 […]

I’m so excited to deliver Rae’s full gallery in a few minutes, but I knew I needed to share a BUNCH of them here on my blog.  It was great to kick of Senior season with Rae and her mom Cindy earlier this month.  We met at Wolcott house over in Maumee, then took a […]

During our consultation Ashley+Josh mentioned not wanting the “traditional” engagement session.  The wheels immediately started turning in my head.  I LOVE hearing “We don’t want the norm… what should we do?”  After chatting for a little bit we decided that a cozy, comfortable, at home session featuring their fur baby Remi was the perfect idea […]

After two reschedules, one due to rain and the other to sickness, I was FINALLY able to meet these two gorgeous ladies a few weeks back for their engagement session.  They’ve already seen their full gallery but I can not not share these with you all.  The evening was absolutely perfect. Becki + Christy spend the […]
