Caitlin and Brandon adore each other, and I can't tell you how fun it was to capture their wedding day. From being so warmly welcomed by Caitlin's family at the beginning of the day to capturing their friends' awesome dance moves at the end, this was such a great way to end my 2015 season. So much love!
Michelle and Evan's wedding day was as unique as they are. From the gorgeous handmade and personalized chuppah to the random rain shower that ended as quickly as it came to the lottery tickets that each guest received as a favor, it was a beautiful wedding to photograph.
Both Michelle and Evan are extremely insightful, have big hearts and are devoted to each other and their families. It was beautiful to witness them joining their lives together. Congrats, you guys!
I always LOVE to photograph weddings at the Club at Hillbrook. This place is gorgeous and all the nooks and crannies are so fun to photograph.
The morning of her wedding, Rhiana greeted my assistant Caitlin and I at the door of her parent's house with the biggest smile on her face and a bowl of yogurt and berries in her hand. She was so joyful and relaxed and excited all day that you just knew she and Joe were entering into this true covenant of marriage. They think the world of each other and treat the other with such respect and adoration. It's really sweet to witness.
Sometimes you can just tell with certain people that family means everything to them. Rhiana and Joe are so good-hearted and speak so highly of their siblings and parents that I knew family was something really special to them. In fact, that's how they knew that they had found the one they would spend the rest of their life with … Rhiana's family welcomed Joe with open arms and vice versa.
Rhiana and Joe have started a little family of their own now--they even have a new pup named Indy--and I know their home is filled with so much love and acceptance and affirmation. You two are such great role models of how we all should live our lives. I'm so thankful I got to know you and document the day you became a family. Thanks for being so great, Rhiana and Joe!
After taking portraits at Brecksville Reservation, Rhiana and Joe made time to get ice cream at Honey Hut with their wedding party. THE COOLEST THING EVER! They all got their photo on the wall for finishing The Destroyer--a GIANT banana split with, like, nine scoops of ice cream.
