Jenny & Chris | Downtown Kent Ohio Engagement

Downtown Kent Ohio engagement photosCan we just say, any day we get to shoot around Pufferbelly in Kent Ohio is a good day! Kent has such beautiful, historical architecture, alongside modern landscapes. We often find ourselves there throughout the wedding season with a wedding party or newly engaged couple.

Getting to know Jenny and Chris was a treat. They were so adorable and natural together! the evening couldn’t have been more perfect! Fall colors were on full display, highlighted by evening sunlight. A cozy blanket added into the mix was the perfect ending…

Caitlin & Greg | Boardman Ohio Engagement

Caitlin_Greg_015_WEBMeeting Caitlin and Greg at Caitlin’s parents Boardman Ohio home was such a pleasure! We love shooting on private property, first, because it’s unique, and second, because it really gives us a personal glimpse into the history of our couples, to see part of their lifestyle and heritage.

The home’s surounding landscape was really a perfect portrait location with so many intersting textures, colors, and backgrounds. They even planed a creative save-the-date idea that we can’t show you yet!

After pictures at mom and dad’s, we went to another beautiful property that, again…

Kristina & Ryan | Cuyahoga Valley Ohio Engagement

Kristina_Ryan_002_WEBIt wasn’t exactly love at first sight, but Kristina had her eye on Ryan from nearly the first time they met. Throughout college the friendship eventually grew into much more. It began when Kristina was looking forward to a date with some OTHER guy. Now being “just friends” wasn’t good enough for Ryan, and something had to change! She never went on that date, and the rest is history! A gorgeous wedding is now on the calendar for 2016!

Our Cuyahoga Valley Ohio Engagement session with Kristina and Ryan took place on a beautiful summer evening. The Valley had been a favorite location for the two of them from the start…

Angela & Matt | Pittsburgh Engagement

Angela_Matt_000a_WEBWe had been looking forward to Angela and Matt’s Pittsburgh engagement session all summer! Angela booked us over a year ago and had been avidly following us since! Not only were we excited to meet these two and photograph them together, but driving to Pittsburgh provided, for us a much needed day retreat as a couple! We did a little shopping, visited Amanda’s sister, and stayed at the best little bed and breakfast we have ever seen! It was wonderful!

… and so were Angela and Matt; wonderful, that is. They truly are perfect for each other and totally ROCKED their engagement session! It was so nice to hang out with them, and get to know…

Abbey & Andrew | Warren Ohio Engagement

Warren Ohio Engagement photosAbbey and Andrew call Warren Ohio home so that was the obvious choice for our engagement session. Warren offers some beautiful old architecture and landscaped gardens near it’s downtown square.

Abbey first met Andrew while playing volleyball and they still play together! It wasn’t long before they knew they were meant for each other and started planning for “I do’s.” It’s clear to see that Abbey and Andrew are a great match!

We had a great time getting to know them and their handsome labradoodle…

Aleks & Rob | Peninsula Ohio Engagement

Aleks_Rob_010_WEBMeet Aleks and Rob! This lovely couple were troopers as we photographed their Peninsula Ohio engagement session in some of the hottest and stickiest weather this summer! We all needed to hop back into our cars for a blast of air conditioning before the next location! In spite of the heat our session turned out great!

We have photographed many times in the lovely town of Peninsula, and every time we do, there is always more to explore and places to discover! From the nature trail to the quaint village buildings, it seems to never end. We usually have to stop because it’s getting too dark! Aleks and Rob were…

Shannon & Brian | Kent State Engagement

Kent State EngagementThere’s a story about a random meeting and box of pizza that first connected these two on the Kent State campus. That was just the beginning of what would later become a great friendship! Soon they’ll exchange “I dos.”

We frequently shoot around the Kent State campus, but is was especially vibrant the evening of our session with Shannon and Brain! It could have been wet and dreary and we still would have felt cozy with them! They had this infections connection throughout our session. In spite of a little “admitted” camera nerves, they seemed SO comfortable in their skin and “at home” together…

Krista & Mike | O’Neil House Engagement

Krista_Mike_001_sm_WEBThe O’Neil House in Akron, Ohio was a fitting spot for this lovely couple. It’s century old charm and elegance make it the perfect backdrop for engagement photos! We get excited for any chance to shoot here!

Krista and Mike drove up from Columbus under a cloudy sky. Most of the session remained overcast until the very end. Just before the sun sank beneath the horizon, it peaked out for some sunny portraits!

As you’ll see right away, Krista and Mike are very much in love and perfect together! They where very…

Jessica & Tim | Lima Ohio Engagement

Jessica_Tom_010_WEB Jessica and Tim are such genuine souls. We so enjoyed hanging out with them a little bit before their wedding! Getting to know our couples ahead of their wedding and learning the little things that make their relationship special, is one of the highlights of our job!

We began their Lima Ohio engagement session in the youth room of the church where Jess and Tim hang out and serve together. It’s always been important to us for our couples to know that if a location, or particular items hold special meaning in their relationship, we want to know about it! Spending so much time together serving kids…

Paula & Trevor | Gish Barn of Ohio Engagement

Paula_Trevor_000_blog_WEBYears before I met and married Nathan, he and Paula were good friends and  coworkers. Such good friends, in fact, that they even took dancing lessons together! I attended the dance recital!  I became fast friends with Paula (in spite of her dancing with my soon-to-be boyfriend ;-)).

Time passed. Nathan moved to Ohio and we got married! Paula took her writing skills to new heights and wrote a book about relationships and boys! We looked forward to the day our friend would find the real man of her dreams!

Enter Prince Charming (or commonly called Trevor)…
