Elizabeth and Mark’s Engagement Session – Canton OH Photographer

This classy, beautiful couple are Elizabeth Joseph and Mark Hilton. They will be tying the knot on September 24th, 2016. They are a very sweet and very active couple.

Mark is a Sales Engineer and frequently travels to Germany for his job. But when he is home he and Elizabeth are huge fitness buffs and love working out together. He also loves to cook. Fun Fact: They were friends for seven years before he proposed to her! Elizabeth has a background in fashion and runs the Mainstream Boutique in North Canton with her sister Rebecca Paliswat. It is a really cool boutique! Check it out here: https://www.facebook.com/MainstreamBoutiqueNorthCanton

They had many ideas for their unique engagement session. It was a bit of a challenge to fit it all in, but I love a good challenge! We started out at Cuyahoga Falls River Square. Then we headed to the Metro Gorge Falls. I love taking portraits in the Mary Campbell cave. Such beautiful quality of light and fantastic texture on the walls. Then we rushed home, picked up their sweet little dog Nellie and headed over to Sippo Lake Park. All the shots taken at Sippo were Elizabeth’s idea and it work out beautifully. She arrange for the bike rental from Ernie’s Bike shop. I love the vintage inspired design of the bikes. She also wanted to have some fun photos of them swinging on the playground. They were so cute and pulled off playful and romantic all at the same time. Then we drove over to the docks with Nellie and squeezed the last few photos of them with the sun setting over the lake. It was a perfect session with perfect weather and an even more perfect couple. Elizabeth and Mark are very sweet and I can’t wait to photograph their special day!

Michaiah and Brady’s Spring Formal Session – Minerva OH Photographer

Isn’t this the cutest couple ever? Although I may be a bit biased. This is my beautiful sixteen year old sister Michaiah and her boyfriend Brady. They attend Carrollton Baptist School where their Spring Formal was being held.  I had another prom session nearby earlier that day. So afterwards I stopped by my parents home and had a mini session for these two.  We were lucky because it stopped raining for about 15 minutes for us. We were also lucky because my parent’s apple tree was in full bloom and was absolutely gorgeous!

Now allow me to brag a little on my lil sis. Michaiah is number five in the birth order of our family having four older sisters and a younger brother. When she was born I was 12 years old. She and I were best buds from day one. We have continued to stay close even though I got married when she was in third grade. She is frequently at my house for the weekends and especially during the summer. Even though we are going though totally different stages in life we somehow still connect and love hanging out with each other. I especially love how much she loves my kiddos. She is so good to them.

I was a little unsure when I heard about Brady at first. (Being the protective older sister and all 😉 ). But after I met him and found how how polite and sweet he is to her, I am so glad they have each other to share this special time in life together. He is a senior this year and will be heading off to Geneva Bible Collage in the fall.

Note at the end of this post there is an outtake. While taking these photos my brother and his best friend decided to photobomb Michaiah and Brady in full air soft gun gear. Brady thought it was hilarious. Michaiah, not so much. But hey, that’s what younger brothers for right?
