Collected Retreat 2015 | A Collaborative ShootAugust 21, 2015

Canton Ohio Film Wedding Photographer
It was a hot and sticky July day, with just a few downpours, but no one cared because so much inspiration was at our fingertips. From the string lights to the mobile bar and the beautiful models to the tablescapes, Collected 2015 was even better than last year.

Collected is a collaborative shoot, hosted by Mallory + Justin, that I’ve been lucky enough to be invited to twice now. A whole bunch of awesome creatives and wedding vendors come together to imagine, create and network … all for the fun of it. That’s how much we like what we do.

Once again, Collected was hosted on Mallory’s parent’s beautiful property … the perfect setting for an idyllic day.

Charleston, S.C. | TravelAugust 20, 2015

Downtown Charleston South Carolina
Charleston makes me giddy. I want to go back again and again because two days just wasn’t long enough! For two people who love historic homes and a whole lot of brunch, Charleston was the perfect end to our family beach trip this summer.

Downtown Charleston South Carolina
I was a tad obsessed with photographing the Crepe Myrtle trees!

Laura & Jack | Goodtime III Cleveland WeddingAugust 18, 2015

Cleveland Ohio Film Wedding Photographer
Laura and Jack are two of the most magnetic people on this planet. When you take a look at their wedding photos, you’ll know what I mean. They’re charismatic, they know how to have a good time and … they’re good dancers. ;) They are also so, so, SO, so hilarious. All the laughter in these photos is 100% real.

Cleveland holds a special place in the hearts of these two now-DCers. Laura grew up in this lovely city of ours, and Jack went to college just outside the city. They’re so loyal to all things CLE that they knew they had to get married here.

This is the most epic Cleveland wedding I have ever photographed. From portraits downtown to sailing around the city on the Goodtime III, Laura and Jack did their city proud. Cleveland misses you two and can’t wait until you return!

My very favorite moments from their wedding include:

  • Laura’s constant spunk and permanent smile from the second she opened the door in her hotel room.
  • All things turquoise! Including Laura’s gorgeous wedding band.
  • The toast with the bridesmaids and Laura’s cute, little niece!
  • The groomsmen juggling (I didn’t experience it firsthand, but from what I hear it was pretty impressive).
  • Laura dancing all the way to the first look …
  • … And then the dance party that took place afterwards.
  • The groomsmen running up the hill over the convention center.
  • The exchange of rings during the ceremony. It was a little hot inside the church, and I think there were some swollen fingers (haha)!
  • Being on a boat for the entire reception!
  • The amazing dance party that continued all night.

It was SO fun, guys. Thanks for having us! (And thanks to my amazing second shooter, Maria!)

Melissa & Matt | Kent State EngagementAugust 13, 2015

Kent Ohio Wedding Photographer
Oh, these two. Melissa and Matt have spunky personalities, and they’re so much fun to be around! I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so much at engagement session.

Both Melissa and Matt are Kent State alums, but they met by chance when Matt replaced Melissa in a job at the school. How’s that for happenstance? Melissa was on her way to living in Cincinnati so they did the long distance thing for quite awhile. These two are 100% dedicated to everything they do (wedding planning?? Melissa is the queen!), so it’s not surprising at all that they made long distance work and are getting married years later!

I’ve been looking forward to the M+M wedding for so long, and I’m pumped that it’s right around the corner. These two will be on the blog again in just a couple months. :)

Kent Ohio Wedding Photographer
Melissa, you’re gorgeous! I adore this photo of you.
