Lauren + Timmy // Cleveland, OH // Wedding

Lauren + Timmy's wedding day was so magical! The couple found me through a mutual friend from high school and we'd talked on the phone months prior to meeting, as the two live in Arizona but were both Cleveland born & raised. The first time we met in person was at a local favorite, Mama Santa's in Little Italy. Lauren and Timmy told me that Mama Santa's, the small pizza joint on the corner of the street, was the couple's first stop after stepping off the plane in Cleveland whenever they arrived home. That's when I knew we'd be a good fit.

 When I asked Lauren if she was nervous on the day of her wedding, the soon-to-be bride answered calmly, "I mean, Timmy's my best friend. Why would I be nervous to spend the rest of my life with my best friend?" The line was delivered so gracefully and authentically, and it was truly evident throughout the entire time I spent with them. The energy of the entire wedding party was so fun and wild, I constantly felt like I was surrounded by good friends. 

What a wonderful way to kick off the first wedding of the year! If this was a reflection of my upcoming weddings, I truly can't wait for the following weddings this 2018.

Teresa + Vince // Cleveland, OH // Engagement

Today I ventured over to the Arcade Cleveland to do some engagement photographs with Teresa and Vince! The two really wanted to get some holiday engagement photographs, and while we debated on going to a Christmas Tree farm, we settled on an indoor venue because of the cold and I am so thrilled with the way these photographs turned out. 

Teresa and Vince were so fun to hang out with! Teresa and I went to the same high school but had never formally met, and today was such a great introduction to both her and her future husband. I got to the venue a bit early and took a trip over to Rising Star Coffee to get a little caffeine in my system, and then we began shooting in the Arcade. We decided to move on across the street to East 4th and my heart SANG at how beautiful it was outside - 40º and misting rain, the light was perfect and these two were such naturals in front of the camera.

I can't wait to shoot Teresa and Vince's wedding! Keep a look out for that one in 2018.
