maureen + dan

wedding

When Rachel and I arrived at the hotel were Dan was getting in his tux + bow tie to blue skies and sunshine… I thought: We are SO not going to have a rainy day for these two!  If you remember their engagement session, they basically beamed sunshine the whole time.  They make their faces light up and laughs & smiles & things come so easily with this pair.  They are a dream!  Well… mother nature must have determined that their inner sunshine was all that we could handled because it RAINED.   That’s a-ok, we are professionals and Toledo Country Club boasts a damn good porch that gave them all the coverage they needed ;)

Maureen, you are a stunner!  That dress, holy cow.  Dan, had his best Mad Men demeanor & worked that style icon energy.   Loved it.  Biggest congrats you two!!!  We had a lovely time documenting this exciting moment in your lives.

registry bistro engagement party details

wedding
As a Toledo wedding photographer, our season wrapped at the end of October… and winter has left me longing to photograph pretty things!  Luckily I know some pretty, pretty talented people who make spaces look spectacular.  I headed up to Registry Bistro to photograph details for an engagement soirée designed by Elite Events.  THIS is why Registry Bistro is one of my favourite Toledo wedding venues!  Lighting and lounge furniture by Magers Designs!

shawn + phil

wedding
Shawn and Phil are one of those couples that are a dream to get to know.  When I met with them, heard about Phil’s thoughtful wedding proposal (and then saw the video he has secretly produced documenting it) I was honored tat they were entrusting me to photograph their Cleveland wedding.
They had a Kate Spade inspired event, reception at Cleveland gem MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art)… a building I saw phases of construction and sooo hoped I would get the chance to photograph a wedding at!
Phil and Shawn are adorably in love AND have great style with attention to detail.  I have been looking forward to their wedding since they officially were marked on my calendar.  It was an honor to document their wedding day!  Biggest congrats to them!!!

britney + nick | toledo country club wedding

wedding
A June outdoor wedding at Toledo Country Club???  I mean, you don’t get much lovelier than that.  Is lovelier a word?  Britney & Nick were beaming the whole day, when they were announced husband & wife, their smiles gave us all goosebumps.  Elite Events designed their wedding decor around their love of going to Detroit Tigers games… I didn’t think that a baseball themed wedding could be so pretty, but they nailed it!  Toledo Country Club always makes the for a wonderful scene in photos, once of my favourite venues.  Enjoy their photos! :)

mod summer inspired shoot

wedding
It was a labor of love for a few months, collaborating on this shoot with Aimee of Modernly Events.  I photographed Aimee & Matthew’s wedding in September of 2012 & we shared a common love of mid century modern design, architecture & furnishings.  I recall leaving their wedding & saying to them: ‘It’s totally normal to want to start doing weddings’ (or something to that affect).  I think in the back of my head, I saw that she excelled at completing a cohesive vision for a large event.  If you peek through their wedding, you’ll see just how true this is.  I was thrilled when I heard of her new venture into event design & furniture rental!  She came up with the initial concept based on artist Alexander Girard’s sun imagery & we went bananas from there bringing that vision to life.  It was a total blast, stressful, but I am so so happy with how everything came together!
Big thanks to all the professionals involved…

faith + jeff in the knot ohio!!

news, Press, wedding

Married on Put in Bay Island, I had a feeling Faith and Jeff’s modern nautical wedding would get some attention in the area.  Elite Events executed the preppy theme perfectly!  I was blown away with their reception decor at Put in Bay Yacht Club!
