Emerald and Grey Wedding at the Malawi Event Center in the Toledo Zoo

Going into Brooke & Kelly’s wedding, we knew we were going to be in for a treat. How could we not get excited when we heard talk of giraffe-feeding and a huge wall to wall aquarium? We were looking forward to working at the newest venue at the Toledo Zoo - the Malawi Event Center.

Nazareth Hall Wedding with Blush and Burgundy Tones

In April, we met Facundo & Chelsea for their engagement session in Ann Arbor where he was finishing up law school and she worked at University Hospital. In just a couple of hours, we got to know them as if we have been friends for years. We learned of the hard work Facundo has put into law school and we are thrilled to be a part of this exciting time as he starts studying for the bar and preparing for the next step in his career. We also saw the undeniable love and support that they have for each other and their willingness to stand by each other through everything.

Wedding Planning Advice From Real Brides

With just a few weeks until the official start of wedding season, we are diving into wedding plans with our couples. One of my favorite parts of my job is helping our couples enjoy their wedding day as much as possible, and since I’ve been to literally hundreds of weddings, I’ve come to consider myself somewhat of an expert on the matter. One of the most important parts of being a wedding photographer is getting to know each of our couples on an individual, personal level. We build a relationship, a friendship. We don’t shy away from telling brides when it’s ok to be selfish,  and are happy to offer advice on putting together a stress-free wedding day timeline (whether you want to do a first look or not - but more on that later).

And just like that, 2016 has come and gone. Another year of the most fun couples, the most amazing venues and many new, unique traditions. We experienced 23 ‘I Dos’ from here to Hawaii and enjoyed each and every one of them. We celebrated our first anniversary and then it was time for the holidays, but we weren’t done yet.

Downtown Toledo Fall Engagement Sessions

The other day, I shared a few engagement sessions that took place in the beautiful setting of Pure Michigan. While it was awesome to explore some new areas and take full advantage of the beautiful fall we’ve had, there’s still a huge soft spot in our hearts for Toledo and we are always excited to head downtown with our couples. Recently, we’ve had the pleasure of spending the day with two more engaged couples - this time, a little closer to home. If these sessions don’t encourage you to spend some time in downtown Toledo, I’m not sure what will.

Ohio Was Made for October Weddings

One of my favorite things about living in Ohio is the changing of seasons. Even though I think we can all get annoyed of how long winter likes to stick around, it makes spring all the more enjoyable and it makes us appreciate summer ten times more. But the best time of year, when Ohio really shows off its best assets, is fall.
