Schmeltz Wedding | Sunrise Park and Banquet Center

I couldn't have thought of a more magical way to close out the 2017 wedding year than with Nick and Nicole in Toledo, Ohio! I usually stress in-person consultations and engagement shoots before the big day as a way for the couple and I to connect and get comfortable with each other. However, with the distance between us and Nick and Nicole's busy schedules, the couple decided to forgo an engagement shoot before they said "I do." 

So I was BEYOND relieved and thrilled to find that these two were not only naturals in front of the camera, but that I felt like I had known them for years! I was reminded of how great of a privilege it is to share in these intimate moments with couples on the most important day in their journeys together. 

Here's a sneak peak of their incredible day...

Atkinson Wedding | Moonsville Mag 11

One of the joys of being a wedding photographer is watching a couple's authentic wedding vision come to life! One day I could be shooting a wedding in someone's backyard, the next at a church downtown, then perhaps at a historic mansion, and finally in a barn! I loved getting to know Hayleigh and Darren over the past year and I absolutely loved the personal touches and style that they incorporated into their big day. It was so THEM!

Here's a sneak peak of their rustic barn wedding...

Coxhall Garden Proposal

There's nothing quite as romantic as proposing to the one you love at her favorite (and might I add, gorgeous) park! When Kyle came to me and asked if I would help him capture this special surprise moment for him and Annika, of course I said yes! So excited to help them document this amazing journey, from the Winter Proposal, to the Spring Engagement Shoot and finally their Fall wedding at Laurel Hall!

Haywood Wedding | BluFalls Arts & Events Center

Let's be honest, if I gave out awards for weddings, Abby and Clark would take the trophy for "Most Kissable Moments." But in all seriousness, there were too many beautiful memories to count on their gorgeous day. Their incredible journey started in the 8th grade and survived even living on opposite sides of the globe. Without a doubt, their story is already one for the books...

What can I say about Kylee and Andrew, besides that I absolutely ADORE them?

It was such an honor to shoot their beautiful day in such a whimsical space. They were total troopers, bracing the wind to snap some gorgeous outdoor photos. A little chill, all in the name of love. I wish all the best to this amazing pair and thank them for letting me capture this special time in their lives!

We are just one week out from Kylee and Andrew's big day! This beautiful duo decided to delay their engagement shoot until the Fall foliage took over...and the wait was well worth it! I am STILL swooning over these colors!
