Alyssa + Oliver’s Engagement Session – Canton, OH Wedding Photographer

Baby, I’m dancing in the dark, with you between my arms
Barefoot in the grass, listening to our favorite song
I have faith in what I see
Now I know I have met an angel in person
And she looks perfect, no I don’t deserve this
You look perfect tonight

| Ed Sheeran |

This is Alyssa and Oliver! And they were so perfect together. Alyssa is sweet and lighthearted. And Oliver constantly had a smile on his face and was trying his hardest to keep Alyssa laughing the whole night. They are so sweet together. You can tell how much they love each other. Alyssa and Oliver have a wedding set for next spring. They were excited to get their engagement session taken to get their save the date’s cards in the mail.

I find it is so much easier for all of us on the wedding day if there was an engagement session taken. We get to know one another and I help my couples realize that getting your photos taken can be enjoyable and even fun! So when the wedding day comes, we are like old friends and the chemistry is so much richer for those  wedding day photos. For this reason I am now offering complementary engagement sessions to all my wedding packages. This way a bride doesn’t have to choose and we can connect before the big day.

Without further ado here is this gorgeous couple’s session in downtown Canton, OH.

Brian + Kalie’s Engagement Session – Cuyahoga Falls National Park – Virginia Kendall Cliffs

“Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Place your head on my beating heart
I’m thinking out loud
Maybe we found love right where we are.”

Brian and Kalie were the lucky winners of my Facebook Engagement Session Giveaway in January. Being that Brian lives in New Jersey and Kalie in Columbus we thought it might be a challenge to get them together. Thankfully, the first date we picked out worked!  It was a bit chilly, but beautiful with a gorgeous sunset. You don’t get that lucky in Ohio in March very often.

Brian and Kalie met in college in New Jersey. Then, Brian went on to become a pitcher for the Minnesota Twin for several years. Now he is back finishing up school. And Kalie is almost finished with Veterinarian school and ready to start her internship in Florida soon.

This was my first time shooting at Virginia Kendall Cliffs in Cuyahoga Falls National Park. Even though it is about an hour from Louisville it was definitely worth the drive. We are so lucky to have a National Park so close to home! I was looking at a map the other day and the next nearest National Park is Shenandoah in Virginia.  My family and I love to take advantage of this and we have been trying to take summer trips to hike the whole park a little bit at a time.

When I suggested the Virginia Kendall they were all for it. And Brian and Kalie were such good sports about all the hiking. The trails were a little muddy. And the snow was unexpected.  But it made for very beautiful photos.

It was such a pleasure working with this couple. They were so sweet and easy to work with.

Brian and Kalie, I wish you the very best in your exciting new life together.

The O’Neill Family – Arrowhead Orchard – Louisville, OH Family Photographer

Meet the O’Neill Family. Ashley, James, Isabelle and Kaden. Ashley is also a professional photographer at Elm + Evermore. She and I decided to swap services this year. She took my beautiful session earlier this year. So I was excited to shoot her session. She decided to do a family and anniversary session together.

We picked Arrowhead Orchard in Paris, OH as the location. I love shooting there with all the greenery and rolling hills.

It is always a little intimidating working for someone who has the same profession. But James and Ashley were so relaxed. And they are naturals in front of the camera which made my job so easy.

Sarah and Eric’s Engagement Photography Session – Cuyahoga Falls, OH – Northeast, OH

This is Eric and Sarah. They will be getting married this August. I was so glad that they chose to have an engagement session.  Engagement is such a short but special time, and having a session that focuses that love and excitement is priceless. I was also glad to be able to get to know them a little better before their big day.  Eric and Sarah are such a fun and easy couple to photograph. I am so excited for their wedding. Sarah will be a gorgeous bride!

John and Alli Kelly – McKinley Park, Canton, OH

Allow me to introduce this cute couple John and Alli Kelly; along with their hairy son Roscoe. John and Alli were married four years ago in Hawaii where John was stationed in the Army. Alli is actually my cousin on my dad’s side of the family. And since I wasn’t able to give them a wedding present, I offered four years ago that when they visit Ohio I would gift them a session. Well, that time has come! They were so lucky to have this beautiful Ohio morning. March weather is very unpredictable. It was so much fun photographing a couple who are married and were comfortable in front of the camera. It was also nice that I was able to give them these portraits which commemorate such a fun time in their newly wed life!
