Kaedra & Alex | Stan Hywet WeddingMay 22, 2014

Stan Hywet Wedding Photographer
They met at Ohio State University over a few games of H-O-R-S-E. As sophomores on campus, Kaedra and Alex chatted for more than an hour on the court that day. And then they parted ways and left the rest up to chance. It wasn’t until nearly three years later that they went out for the first time.

“Alex is always encouraging me to try new things, like CrossFit, and treats every situation like we are a team,” Kaedra said. “He pushes me to do things I never thought I could, and just when I’m about to fall, he knows the exact moment to step in and help.”

During their engagement session, Kaedra and Alex gushed about their newfound love of CrossFit, and one of the things I remember most about that conversation was how complimentary the two were of each other. Kaedra made sure it was known that Alex was one of the best in their gym, although he would never have admitted it. Alex bragged about how dedicated Kaedra was to the early-morning workouts. This is Kaedra and Alex. They share this awe of each other that is really fantastic to observe.

Thank you so much for asking me to be a part of your wedding day, you two. Sometimes I feel like this job makes me a better person, and interacting with you guys has added to that. You’re a highlight of my season! Enjoy your honeymoon!

One of the bridesmaids gifted all the girls with these adorable monogrammed shirts. So thoughtful!

You know I love cats. It was pretty hilarious–and fitting, really–to see Kaedra’s childhood cat checking in on the getting ready process.

We skirted rain all day, which was fabulous since the wedding took place outdoors at Stan Hywet. The grounds at this estate are unbelievably gorgeous!

I shot some Fuji 400H at the wedding. :) Kaedra makes it look extra great!

Creative Juices: Client Meeting PlaylistMay 20, 2014

I meet clients in my home office these days, but way back when, I would travel to coffee shops all over Cleveland meeting brides and grooms and hearing about their wedding days. There were pros and cons to that. Pro: I looove the vibe at almost all coffee shops. The music and the atmosphere perfectly complement a steaming latte. Con: It can be impossible to have a conversation over all the other conversations happening in that one space. See what I mean? So now I bring my favorite parts of a coffee shop to my cozy office: hot drinks, comfy chairs and soothing music. That plus no background noise is really a win-win for me!

Since it’s been awhile since I shared a Creative Juices, I thought I’d share the playlist I use during client meetings. These are some of my all-time favorite songs, combined with some new favorites. I could listen to this every day (and sometimes I do)! I hope it inspires you today. :)
