Another senior portrait session in the books! I will have 2 more on the blog within the next week too! Tis the season!

Elise-2

Another girl from my hometown! We started at a local private beach which I frequented as a kid. Brought back some fun memories for me!

I love how natural and relaxed her photos look!

Then we went down to the metroparks. I scoped out some locations earlier and found a beautiful field of wildflowers…or maybe weeds, whatever, it looked great!

Sierra & Brandon : 8.15.15

Beautiful day for an afternoon wedding! This wedding was in Vermillion on the Lake at a beautiful lodge. I loved the decor of this wedding, so pretty and rustic…really paired nicely with the setting!

Sierra’s grandfather passed away recently and she wanted to incorporate his Nova into some photos. I got so many great ones, but here are a couple of my favorites!

When the light was less harsh, we managed to sneak off to a beautiful park on the beach!

A’s Senior Portraits : 8.9.15

Absolutely beautiful night! Perfect lighting made for stunning photos.

Senior portraits have come a long, long way. I was young once…I made terribly poor outfit choices in my senior pictures…particularly a pale pink denim jacket. It is so refreshing to do relaxed and fun senior sessions. These photos are treasured for a lifetime…so make sure they reflect you!

If you’re interested in a senior portrait shoot…contact me! I am much more reasonable than the average portrait studio. You receive copyrights and WAY more images than you think!

Rosa & Wilman : 8.8.15

I met Rosa through an online wedding group and she was kind enough to hire me to capture her day! This one was definitely different for me as both the ceremony and reception were in Spanish. I really enjoyed seeing all the cultural aspects of this wedding!

Wilman&Rosa

Like I said, the entire ceremony was in Spanish, so I was paying extra close attention to what was happening!

Autumn & Adam : 8.1.15

Such a gorgeous Saturday! We have had such a wet summer it is a nice change of pace to have beautiful days like this one! I met the bride late last year and she and I got along immediately. She is spunky and sassy and refreshing! I really have enjoyed getting to know her! Adam is okay too 😉

I arrived at the church before the ceremony and totally fell in love with it. So old, so cute, so perfect. I really enjoyed being in there alone before anyone else arrived!

The ceremony was so nice. Also refreshing, the right amount of formality mixed in with true representation of the couple. I love little ceremonies like that!

Then it was off to take some photos outdoors. I am not all too familiar with the east side, so I can’t remember the name of the park. But it was great! 🙂

You can really feel the happiness between these two!

The reception was at Roses Run in Stow. I have been twice before and always thought it was such a cute place! Autumn’s favors were succulents and I absolutely love when bride’s do this. They are long lasting plants that will always remind guests of your wedding. I even had succulents in my bouquet for my wedding and was able to replant them. They continue to grow to this day! Good choice Autumn 🙂

Another reception full of fabulous dancers! Can’t get enough of crazy guests like these!
