I know I say this ALL THE TIME, but I really am the luckiest photographer. I mean, just take a look at Kaedra and Alex. They are super photogenic, yes, but they are also the nicest people. Really. When I talked to Kaedra for the first time, we chatted for more than an hour. About her wedding, about her hometown of Akron, about Alex, about her job in Washington, D.C. Kaedra and Alex are so genuine and so sweet together. I love getting to know people like this. It's what makes my job so worthwhile!
And now … Kaedra and Alex! I can hardly wait for their spring wedding!
Such gorgeous people. :)
Love these next three. The light was sooooo pretty!
To say I'm excited for Jocelyn and Aaron's September wedding would be an understatement. One look at their engagement photos and you'll see what I mean. Jocelyn and Aaron are beautiful inside and out. They're smart. They're sweet. They have big hearts. I so enjoyed walking around Cuyahoga National Park with these two on the most perfect fall evening.
Lauren and Joe are two of those people that you feel like you've known forever, even if you've only known them a few months. (I could probably say that about all my couples!) Lauren is so sweet and warm and a little bit goofy (and hey, that's one of Joe's favorite things about her). :) And she's amaaaazing in front of the camera!
Joe is very chill but will tell you anything you want to know. And it just so happens that he plays rugby ... and suffered an injury days before their big day! He was still hurting by the time their wedding rolled around but you would never know it from looking at the pictures, right? So, he's also a trooper. He didn't complain one time!
And together? Together they're even better.
Lauren and Joe had a small Cuyahoga Falls ceremony with their nearest and dearest. I've come to adore intimate weddings because they're so personal and the bride and groom really have the opportunity to really celebrate with everyone they love. This wedding was no exception.
Thank you guys for asking me to join you on your big day! Let's hang out when you move to our neighborhood. ;)
Lauren and Joe had a first look at High Bridge Glen in Cuyahoga Falls, the spot where Joe proposed. Magically, the rain held off and the light was perfect.
Oh, they are such naturals. This is a fave.
You two are ridiculously good looking.
SEE WHAT I MEAN ABOUT LAUREN BEING GOOD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA?! Gorgeous.
And then it was off to the church!
Love the way Joe is looking at Lauren. Keep it up, sir! ;)
Ohhh I love my job! It was such a joy to document Lauren and Joe's intimate wedding this last weekend. The weather forecasted rain all day, but by early afternoon it had cleared and we got to do their sweet first look outside at the place where Joe proposed. I give these two mad props for braving the cold and wind ... you would never know it was chilly by looking at their pictures! And now these two are basking in the Florida sun!
More next week! :)
