Shawna & Kyle: Destination Wedding

Kyle and Shawna's wedding was such an amazing experience! The wedding took place on Hilton Head Island, in South Carolina. Chad and I were so excited to be a part of it. The day went perfectly- as the photographer, I couldn't have asked for more :) Both of these really, really, ridiculously good-looking friends of ours know how to work it for the camera. We had so much fun photographing them!!
This is going to be a long post! Enjoy!

Our day started with some formals of Kyle.

Once Kyle was out of sight (Kind of! haha), we had some time with Shawna. She looked stunninggg! And the light was so perfect, I couldn't stop saying so!

These next 3 are my favorites!

After a little downtime, we all went to the ceremony site. Setting up some last minute details:

Shawna and her dad, just before their walk down the aisle.

I thought it was so cute how it worked out that they both have 1 brother and 1 sister for their wedding party!
Brothers :)

Sisters :)

Pastor Steven and Tiffany, from Coastal Family Church, did a wonderful job officiating the ceremony. There were laughs and there were tears; it was beautiful.

The proud parents looking on:

I love this photo- so much emotion without even seeing any of the faces.


After the ceremony, huge storm clouds started rolling in. We managed to make the most of the time we had and get some really great shots of the newly married, HAPPY couple!

Thanks again, Kyle and Shawna, for letting us be a part of your perfect wedding day!!!

**Be sure to check out their AWESOME wedding trailer from Eric Monroe, of Shadow Studios.

Kelly & Nick: Engagment Session

Another fun/awesome/hot engagement session!! This was our second beach shoot in one week (which is odd considering we live in Northeast Ohio). I'm not complaining; I could get used to it :)
Enjoy the preview!!

Nick and Kelly are such a gorgeous couple!

My new all-time favorite engagement session photo.

Anne & Michael: Engagement Session

Right after we got home from the beach (*That post will be up today, too!) I met up with Anne and Michael for their engagement session. I love what we captured!

Lilly joined in for a few :)

These two had each other smiling and laughing the whole shoot- I loved it!

Thanks again, Anne and Michael- can't wait for the wedding!!

Ali & Ryan: Wedding

I knew this was going to be a fun wedding to shoot- but it surpassed my expectations!! These two are so sweet and a lot of fun to be around, which is reflected in all of their friends and family. Here is a quick recap of the day:

Love this moment!

Ryan and Ali were so easy to work with and so relaxed all day.
(This was shot inside in the sanctuary of the church.)

We were able to get a lot of diversity of backgrounds all within a block of the church

To the Reception!

Everyone was on the dance floor at this party!

I'll give you one guess as to what song was playing during this:
