Kelly and Joe are quite the pair and a true joy to be around.  Getting to know them over the last couple of months has been such an honor.  Their wedding day was nothing short of amazing that included wonderful families, an awesome wedding party and beautiful locations. 

Congratulations and hugs to the two of you...we've loved being a part of this journey with you both!

What started out as a 'Groomsmen walking away from the camera' shot turned into a 'Groomsmen charging the photographers' shot.  Ha! They win....couldn't have gotten these expressions if they were walking. ;)

I had such a wonderful time getting to know Kelly & Joe during their engagement session.  We talked about life, basketball (Joe played for Xavier University:), and the wedding.  We also perfected Joe's ability to dip Kelly.  He's a pro (you'll see ;), and is really good at dipping her when Kelly least expects it.  Needless to say, I had some good laughs and loved seeing the connection the two of them shared.  Stay tuned...their wedding is hitting the blog next!

Wedding season is in full swing around here.  I've lost track how many weddings we've captured over the years, but I still stand in awe of the personality and creativity that makes each wedding unique to the couple.  It's hard for us to be bored in our line of work...love seeing the variety year after year.

Anne and Colby had such a beautiful spring day!  Our winter was so extreme this year that a sunny, windy day was welcomed with open arms.  And, Anne and Colby are as sweet as they come.  The love they have for one another was evident for all who were there to celebrate the two of them.  It was such an honor to be a part of their day.  Thank you so much for choosing us to capture it all for you.  Many hugs to you both! 

They had an incredible vendor team!

You may be wondering where we've been the last 4 months(!!!), and if you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, then you are probably familiar with our recent move (more on that to come :) and the recent passing of my Grandpa.  You all have been very understanding, and for that we are extremely appreciative.  Thank you a million times over.  And, a huge thank you to all of you who have been waiting very patiently as we try to make up for lost time.

It's hard to believe another school year has come and gone, and we are getting ready to send another senior class onto their next chapter of life.  It was such an honor capturing each of them over the past year.  Since my blogging over the last 6 months has been lacking, I thought I would overwhelm you with one large blog post acknowledging each of them.  Congratulations to each of you!!!  And, best of luck and God's blessings as you continue on this journey called life.  You all are awesome!

This was such a special wedding for us to document.  Beth is a dear college friend of mine.  We ran track together for 4 years at IWU and have continued to stay in touch over the years (not quite as much as we would've liked, but life does that to you;).  It brought my heart so much joy to see her so very happy!  She's pretty amazing and Jeff is quite the catch.

After the crazy winter we had (and, another snow storm the week of their wedding) they welcomed a chilly, but beautiful/clear day in Cleveland.  They were surrounded by many family and friends who were there to cheer them on and are beyond excited to see them start this new journey together. 

Congratulations to the two of you!  Loved, loved being a part of your day!  Love you both!!
