Kathy & Justin | Lyman Harbor Sandusky WeddingAugust 27, 2014

Sandusky Ohio Wedding Photographer
Kathy and Justin are just about the cutest couple I’ve ever met. Within minutes of meeting these two you can’t help but notice that they adore each other so much. All Kathy wanted to do while she was getting ready on her wedding day was SEE JUSTIN! Good thing they planned a first look. I don’t think she would have made it to the altar. :)

When they say that they’re each other’s best friend, they mean it.

“Justin is patient and understanding, helping to strengthen myself as well as our relationship,” Kathy said. “I know that no matter what life throws our way, we will take it on together.”

And Just himself is so obviously enamored with Kathy.

“Even before we started dating I knew that Kathy was everything I ever wanted, and I would do anything to make her mine,” he said. “Wherever life takes us, I’m happy to know she’ll be by my side.”

Oh guys, thanks for being so sweet. To each other … and to us, your photographers! We loved spending the day in Sandusky with you, documenting you two making it official. Congrats you married people!

There was palpable energy just before Kathy and Justin’s first look. That’s why first looks are so cool!

Don’t you love Kathy’s red lips?? She is gorgeous. And I think her doppelgänger is Amanda Seyfried, no?

See that seagull on the roof in the picture on the left? He sat and watched the entire ceremony. So funny!

Rebecca & Kyle | Columbia Ballroom WeddingAugust 21, 2014

Natural Light Cleveland Wedding Photographer
Rebecca’s a dancer. Kyle’s a musician. Rebecca’s 4’11”. Kyle is … tall. :) They met while teaching their passions at a local high school, and Rebecca likes to say she “danced to the beat of his drums.” Haha, that girl is the cutest. And she has the BEST facial expressions and a contagious personality.

“I love how Rebecca is always up for any crazy ideas I have,” Kyle said, obviously agreeing with me on how great Rebecca is. “She’s also ready to solve any problem that comes our way. She is my other half and my best friend.”

Kyle isn’t bad himself. For one, he loves cats. (Yes, that makes him my new best friend.) And he would do ANYTHING for Rebecca.

“When I’m with Kyle he always seem to fill the moments with laughter,” Rebecca said. “Kyle pushes me to believe in myself and he truly is my best friend. I love the way he makes me feel when I am with him and how the simple moments in our relationship are the ones I cherish the most.”

Oh, you guys. :) Thanks a million for inviting me to document your big day. Everything was incredibly beautiful, and you two made Markie and I feel so welcome! I can’t wait to keep up with the additions to your cat family!

Tracey & Joe | Cleveland City Hall Rotunda WeddingAugust 14, 2014

Cleveland Art Museum Wedding Portraits
Tracey and Joe are some of the most genuine people I’ve ever met. Their families are some of the kindest people. And their friends had some of the sweetest things to say about all of the above. I can’t believe I get to surround myself with such positive, happy people every weekend. I count my blessings every week.

These two met during a ski trip, and while Joe made a good first impression on Tracey, she initially thought he’d be perfect for her best friend. :D It didn’t take Tracey long to realize that Joe was a good catch.

“Joe cares so much about others and is always willing to make sure everyone else is accommodated before he worries about himself,” she said. “I love his generosity.”

It’s pretty fitting these two met on a ski trip because Joe’s favorite thing about Tracey is her sense of adventure.

“Tracey approaches every day looking to find something new and interesting to do,” he said. “Whether it’s travel, new restaurants, new bars or places to take a walk, Tracey is always looking to find our next adventure.”

Tracey and Joe, I can’t imagine a better couple to have spent my June 28 with. Thank you so much for inviting me into your lives and sharing your wedding day with me!

The girls started the day at Tracey’s parent’s house and toasted to the soon-to-be married couple with mimosas made by Tracey’s dad, Mark. I have to give a shout out to Mark as he was one of the sweetest, most welcoming dads I’ve ever worked with!

Rachel & Ryan | Mon Ami Winery WeddingAugust 5, 2014

Port Clinton Harbor Wedding Photos
Rachel and Ryan met during a night out in Chicago … over some banter. These two are both so witty, it doesn’t surprise me in the least that they joked with each other all night. It was probably hilarious. :) The only problem? Rachel lived in Chicago while Ryan called Cleveland home.

According to Rachel, it almost didn’t matter because Ryan was “so upfront with his feelings” that she was ready to make it work regardless.

“My favorite thing about Ryan is his unwavering desire to make me happy,” Even when I’m upset or feel self-conscious, he does whatever he can to make me feel better, beautiful and loved. I have never had to question the fact that Ryan loves me and will love me no matter what.”

I can personally attest to that just from watching the two of them from behind my camera. Ryan wears his heart on his sleeve when it comes to Rachel, and it’s one of the things that makes them so fun to photograph.

Ryan chimed in: “Rachel’s the most caring and thoughtful person I know. Everyone sees it the first time they meet her, and I will always cherish it.”

Rachel and Ryan, thank you so much for inviting me to document your day. You two are beautiful people, and I’m really so honored to have been your photographer. Enjoy this crazy ride!

Rachel’s dress was gorgeous, with buttons all down the back. And don’t even get me started on her shoes!
