Sarah & Dennis: Engagement Session

I can't believe I haven't blogged these yet! How cool is this-- we shot in the cake shop where Dennis proposed to Sarah!! It's called The White Flower Cake Shoppe in Cleveland. The cake shop was so cute and quaint and an awesome change of scenery for me :) Major props to Dennis for picking out an awesome proposal location! We also did some shooting at their home and in the Cleveland Metro Parks. Thanks again for the awesome session, you two!

Jennifer & Eric: Wedding

Here it is!!! Jenni and Eric's slideshow:

Chad and I had SO much fun at their wedding! I had been excited for their wedding since our very first meeting. After their engagement session, I came home and couldn't stop telling Chad how much fun I had. It was like hanging out with old friends :) That was exactly how the wedding day felt, too. Jenni and Eric were surrounded by great friends and loving family members-- and let me tell you they all can dance! I don't know if I've ever seen a dance floor stay so crowded all night! It was awesome to photograph. The whole day was incredible; thank you so much, Eric and Jenni, for letting us be there to capture your wedding day!!

Enjoy the slideshow!

Logan Rhodes: Birth Story/Portraits

WOW!!! I am sooo excited about these photographs! I am so honored that Josh and Heather allowed me to be there to document the birth of Logan. After missing many phone calls between midnight and 1:30am (I'm really bad at waking up- sorry Josh :) but I'm glad you kept calling!) I headed down to the hospital to document Logan's delivery.
Capturing those moments was not something I took lightly. My hopes in taking these photographs is that Josh and Heather will be able to relive all of the emotions of the event every time they see them. (That is my intention during every shoot or wedding.. but this one especially!) Thank you so much, Josh and Heather, for letting me be a part of such a wonderful time in your lives! I love you THREE very much!!!!

Logan Rhodes Scott

This first series were the hours leading up to Logan's arrival.

My favorite moment of the whole day-- Heather and Josh's first sight of their new baby boy:

Back to the new mommy, after he was cleaned up.

I returned to the hospital later that night to grab a few more portraits of Logan. He had so many expressions :)

:D I love this!! Too cute!!

Jamie & Travis: Wedding

Jamie and Travis are such a sweet, sweet couple! Despite some weather issues and last minute changes, the day turned out to be wonderful. Jamie was a gorgeous bride; Travis' face lit up when she walked in. These two were surrounded by loving family and caring friends all day long. I love the portraits we shot at the very end of the day- the light was the kind of light I hope for on every shoot! Thanks again, Jamie & Travis!!

*I haven't decided which way I like to post weddings- a handful of favorites posted in the blog, or embedding a slideshow... I guess I'll just mix it up! Enjoy the slideshow!*

Karen & Ian: Engagement Session

To my disadvantage- I live in Canton.
To my advantage- I have beautiful & in-love clients who make everything look good!

I had a great time with Karen and Ian. I loved seeing their connection through the lens. So genuine :)
They were completely open to my ideas and trusted in my vision. We found tons of great light all over town.
Enjoy the preview!!

Love those blue eyes!!

I am soo glad we found our way down this alley. How about that light??

Nicole & Bryan: Wedding

Can you believe the last wedding we shot before Nikki and Bryan's was Erin and Dan's back in November?!

Nikki and Bryan had a beautiful wedding! I know I say that a lot- but look!!! Nikki chose a great color scheme in her bridesmaid's dresses, flowers, her shoes, and the cake. Everything complimented each other so well. The entire day was held at the Cuyahoga County Courthouse. The building itself is enough to make any photographer happy :) Add a beautiful bride who loves being in front of the camera to that and you have yourself a very happy photographer.

Here are just a few from the day-- you can see the full sneak peek slideshow here. Enjoy!!

Writing a note to Bryan...


Everything about this photo makes me happy.

This was literally the only moment he wasn't moving on the dancefloor. So cute :)
