During the session, Ted was about eaten alive by mosquitos but he played it cool and you would never know. Brinley loved exploring the park and walking with her daddy. We got to capture some really cute moments of these four interacting together. Secor Metropark is a place I have not shot at in a while. Since moving back to Sylvania, I am really enjoying exploring this park. It was the perfect location for this family session.

Anna and Samuel ranked guest experiences on their wedding day highly. Many choices they made reflected a desire to accommodate their guests' comfort and enjoyment of the event. Samuel assigned a chain of command of coordinators and helpers. Each had specific tasks to ensure the day ran smoothly. Even when things got a little out of sorts, neither Anna nor Samuel let the mishaps disrupt their positive attitudes. This put guests and vendors at ease and allowed all to have a great time.
Lindsay & Terry. Napoleon Ohio Wedding. Emanuel Lutheran Church. Ridgeville Legion.
Lindsay contacted me after buying her wedding dress at Blush A Bridal Boutique in Bowling Green, Ohio. Lee, the owner, happens to pass out my brochure to all of her brides! I met with Lindsay and Terry in downtown Bowling Green at one of my local favorites, Grounds for Thought. Lindsay explained that she and Terry have a little girl and they have been working very hard building a life together. Terry was working an opposite shift to Lindsay and I asked if they ever got to see each other. They both agreed that they do what it takes to make it work! Get to know Lindsay and Terry a little better:
- How did you meet? We met at a party.
- How would you describe your personal style? Very laid back.
- What is the favorite/best date you’ve been on together? We went to Cabo San Lucas in mexico in 2013 for 5 days!
- Who proposed? How? Terry proposed to me after work. One day I came home to a dark house and when I turned on the lights Terry was down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I said YES!
Can I just say how much I LOVE working with people who are kind and laid back? Terry and Lindsay were amazing to work with. No drama. They rolled with any issue that came up and kept their positive attitudes all day long. Lindsay even chased me out to my car to say goodbye at the end of the night when I couldn't find her.
The bride and groom shared a first dance. The bride and her father shared a dance. And then, Terry and his sister danced together in memory of their mother who had passed away. There was not a dry eye to be found during that dance. At the end of the song, all of Terry's family and friends gathered around him and his sister in a giant embrace. The love and support shown in that moment was truly overwhelming and beautiful. This is what weddings are about. Love. Commitment. And weathering these storms of life together.
Terry and Lindsay, it was an honor to document your wedding day. Congratulations!

Mandi and Zach have so much history at Bowling Green State University, that they decided to have an outdoor ceremony on the campus! The forecast said rain all day for Bowling Green. They got lucky and the rain held off until after the ceremony! Everything about the day felt genuine and full of joy. It is so wonderful to see a couple as deeply in love as these two are.
The ceremony took place outside, with the couple exchanging their vows beneath a beautiful tree. It was short and sweet and the couple even shared a mimosa toast. Every aspect of their special day reflected who Jodi and Josh are. A caricature artist was set up at the reception, for guests to enjoy, and also a photo booth, to document their attendance. The evening was filled with laughter and dancing. I admire couples who want to make their day enjoyable, not only for themselves, but for their guests.
The night ended with sunset portraits, lots of dancing and a sparkler send off. It was a beautiful wedding day and the perfect party for Nick and Lexie. I hope you enjoy seeing their special day from my perspective. Be sure to pin and share your favorites.
Little did Josh and Alyssa know that their February wedding would not be cold and snow covered. It turned out that on their day, last year, the temperature reached over 60 degrees. I would be tempted to say it was one of the most beautiful days of the year. The sun was shining and everyone looked fabulous!
As a firm believer in Murphy's Law, I'll be the first to admit things can, and will, go wrong. Equipment malfunctions are not rare and miscommunication can cause mix ups. Special moments can happen without warning while a photographer is changing a lens. Having a second shooter means that even if a mishap occurs, there is an extra person working to document your day and keep your images safe.
Kerri and her husband, Jordan, are expecting their first child this Christmas! They are very excited about welcoming this little girl into their lives. Kerri and Jordan are some of the most generous and loving people I know and I am positive that they will show their baby all the magical things life has to offer.
Jay and Cassandra were attending the fundraiser and placed the winning bid on my photo session! Jay introduced himself to me and explained they were hoping to have family photos done in the fall as it is such a nice time of year. Jay and Cassandra have three young daughters and were looking forward to updating their family portraits!
Jennifer proposed that we exchange portrait sessions and I just had to say yes! She and her husband, Jeremy, have a spaniel mix named Lucy. Lucy is an important part of their family so had to be included in their photos. My husband and I also brought our dog, Beatrice, who is a mastiff mix. Despite the size difference, Bea and Lucy got along perfectly. They both posed... kind of... and mostly paid attention to our directions. We got many precious shots of both of our little families!
I asked Emily how they were preparing Maci for the baby and she said, "We let her sniff the baby things and play with the things we will be using for her and leaving them out for her to get comfortable around". It sounds like they have a good plan to make the transition comfortable for everyone!
We are glad to see Emily and Damon happy, with a healthy baby on the way! Best of luck to you both in this new adventure! Enjoy these photos from their Maternity Session at Providence Park in Grand Rapids, Ohio!

Amy was as a member of a mission trip that was serving there and Mark was visiting a friend. The name translated actually means "Lake of Torches". Mark met his soulmate at the "Lake of Torches".
