Meet Jamie and Timothy Diss. This beautiful couple was married October 8th 2016. They chose the newly build Storybook Barn in Canal Fulton, OH as their wedding and reception location. This was my first time shooting there and it was a wonderful location. It is always so nice and much more relaxing for the couple when there is only one location for the day. They were also very lucky that it was a sunny and warm day for October. It couldn’t have gone better. And Jamie and Tim were such a wonderful couple to work with. They were so laid back. And they had such a sweet group of family and friends. It is always so nice when even as a vendor everyone tries to include you in the celebration. It was such a pleasure to work with you Jamie and Tim and I wish you the very best!
I loved how this little pony decided to come over to the fence right before the wedding started to watch everyone.
I had the wonderful privilege of photographing Elizabeth and Mark Hilton’s wedding. They were married on September 24th at Jackson Friends Church. But I started my day at Mark’s house photographing the guys. They were running a little behind that day, as typical weddings go. Then, we headed to the church. It was so sweet to see how much love was showered on Elizabeth from her family as she was preparing for the wedding and throughout the day. Family seemed to be such a huge part of their lives. It was especially fun to see family members from Armenia who came to attend the wedding. Some hadn’t been here in twenty years! The wedding went smoothly except for the adorably dramatic show from the ring bear. Their reception was at The Walsh Barrett Center. The campus was gorgeous and provided so much photographic opportunity. And then it was off to party! And this family sure can party! Literately everyone was on the dance floor. Including one relative in her 90’s having the time of her life. It was the cutest thing. And the reception really picked up when Elizabeth’s father came out and played with his Armenian band. I was having so much fun I was sad to leave! Mark and Elizabeth have such a wonderful life ahead of them. You can see how much love they share. I wish them the very best! And I want to thank them once again for choosing me to be a part of their big day!
I was so excited for this surprise proposal. Chase contacted me through another photographer friend and it turns out that he went to church with my sister. It was so cool how everything worked out. Chase currently lives in Texas and Rachel in Mentor, OH. He flew in for this surprise proposal using the excuse that he was here to sell a few things to finish the move. When we had discussed the perfect location for the proposal he suggested Gervasi’s. So we planned a perfect spot behind the villas in between two willows. And there I waited for 45 min while they finished up dinner at the Crush House, keeping the spot open. Several people inquired what I was doing and decided to stay and watch. So when Chase finally got there, there was an audience. But unfortunately he was so nervous he walked right past the spot and decided to spontaneously propose on the bridge. But it all worked out and I was able to get these beautiful candid photos. She was so happy! I teared up as well. It was such a special moment to be a part of. Later Chase introduced me to Rachel and we finished out the session with a few portraits.
I wish the very best for Chase and Rachel. May God continue to bless you as you start this journey.
This fun-loving couple are Casey and Tyler. They have set their wedding date for November 2016.
Both being comic book fans we had to have part of their session at a comic book store. So we started out at Hazel’s Heroes Comic Book Store. The owner was so obliging to let us shoot wherever we wanted in his shop. So I want to give him a huge shout out and thank you for his kindness! And note how Tyler had personalized comic book made for the two of them! How adorably romantic!
Being that it was in the mid 90’s that day we waited until the very end of the day to finish out the rest of the session. Thankfully it cooled off a little. We ended at McKinley Monument. I’ve been shooting around McKinley Monument for seven years. I love how many different locations there are all over the park. And the actual monument always make for a beautiful finish.
Congrats to Casey and Tyler and I can’t wait to photographer their special day as well.
