A Christmas Portrait Surprise

I photographed Lainey for senior session at the end of the summer. We had a fun afternoon at Brecksville’s town square and the Cleveland Metroparks. After delivering her senior photo album, she dropped me an email. “Hey, I have an idea for a Christmas gift for my parents…” She went on to write that she would be going away to college and thought a portrait of her and her siblings would be an awesome surprise for mom and dad.

So a plan was hatched. Not only did Lainey book her photo session, but figured out an excuse to get everyone out of the house together, coordinated the sibling outfits and drove everyone to our shoot location at Coe Lake in Berea (Sorry, mom and dad Swings ‘N Things was just a diversion).

We scheduled her post consultation and she purchased her favorites for mom and dad. Lainey had worked all summer at Lumpy’s Ice Cream and saved her tips for Christmas presents. She wanted for her parents to have something special to mark this graduation year when all her and her siblings were all together. The photographs were presented in a slide show on Christmas Eve.

Here are a few of the favorites. sage-siblings-1014 sage-siblings-1042-2sage-siblings-1051 sage-siblings-1056-2 sage-siblings-1072-2 sage-siblings-1073-2sage-siblings-1053 sage-siblings-1083-2 sage-siblings-1086 sage-siblings-1094 sage-siblings-1100Outtake photos are sometimes the favorites.

Christmas Wedding in Cleveland | Dani & Mark

The twinkle lights. The Christmas snow.  Dani had to marry Mark in December. After all, it is her FAVORITE month!  Dani began her day getting ready for their ceremony at her mom and dad’s home before heading over to St. John Bosco in Parma Heights. Mom even decorated the house in red and silver, Mark and Dani’s wedding colors.danimarkglorioso-photography_100 danimarkglorioso-photography_101 danimarkglorioso-photography_102 danimarkglorioso-photography_105danimarkglorioso-photography_103 danimarkglorioso-photography_106 danimarkglorioso-photography_107 danimarkglorioso-photography_108 danimarkglorioso-photography_109 danimarkglorioso-photography_110 danimarkglorioso-photography_111 danimarkglorioso-photography_112 danimarkglorioso-photography_113 danimarkglorioso-photography_114 danimarkglorioso-photography_115 danimarkglorioso-photography_116 danimarkglorioso-photography_117 danimarkglorioso-photography_118 danimarkglorioso-photography_119 danimarkglorioso-photography_120 danimarkglorioso-photography_121 danimarkglorioso-photography_122

I was very excited when Kelsey and Robert contacted me about their farm wedding. Spending the day documenting their wedding at the family’s horse property was a photographer’s dream.  Grassy fields, split-rail wood fences, a century farm house, golden hour sunlit portraits- what is not to love?

I am not going to lie. It was hot. The heat did not seem matter to any one at  Jordan and Nick’s wedding( me included!) The sky was blue and it was a perfectly sunny day for an outdoor wedding ceremony at the Blair Center in Westfield, Ohio. I loved photographing at the Blair Center with its lush green golf course, stone bridges and a bride and groom with gorgeous smiles.

Half the fun of being a wedding photographer is doing the engagement photo session. It is  a good time for me to get to know the couple and and for the couple to get used to being in front of a camera. When Scott and Samantha invited me to come out to Scott’s family property in Garrettsville, I was treated to acres and acres of beautiful land to hike through and to take a few photos where they got engaged. Plus the bonus of meeting Chloe the dog!

Anna and Tim’s Windows on the River Wedding |Cleveland, Ohio

Even though my first wedding of this year was back in February, when spring FINALLY arrives to Cleveland it feels like the big kick off to the wedding photography season. I was very excited to document Anna and Tim’s wedding day that began at St. Patrick’s in Ohio City.
