Rachel & Forrest. Engagement Photography. Toledo Botanical Gardens & Downtown Sylvania.

Rachel and Forrest were a dream to work with. They were fun and relaxed. They were cute and VERY into each other. It is so refreshing to see people who are so passionate about their relationship. We started the session by exploring the Toledo Botanical Gardens together. The gardens have so many unique spots, they provided some beautiful variety! Next, we went to the cute main street area of Downtown Sylvania for a slightly more urban look. I am so happy with how this session turned out. Congratulations Rachel and Forrest!

AJ and Jessica. Ohio Wedding. The Winerie in Sandusky.

I have many adventures as a second shooter. I shoot weddings all over Ohio, not only for myself, but with other photographers. I have an awesome network of wedding photographers who give me work when I am not busy with my own clients. This season I have 17 dates set up to second shoot. That is a lot of Saturdays, but I truly love it. Everyone I work for does things differently and I often learn something new. Being a second shooter allows me to experiment with creative techniques and hone my skills.

Anna & Samuel. Pleasant Hill Ohio. Canyon Run Ranch.

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!

Grace & Gelmar. Tampa Bay Wedding. La Teresita Banquet Hall.

One of the things I loved most about working with these two was the fact that they were so full of joy. The happiness and excitement of the day was very clearly expressed on their faces. The smiles could not have been bigger. Grace and Gelmar just celebrated their one year anniversary and they are an amazing team and so in love!

Perrysburg Ohio Wedding. Tanglewood Golf Course.

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.

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.
