We have been working on this Black Rain project for awhile now and it is FINALLY! just right and absolute SPECTACULAR!!! If you are interested in a black rain session we are currently booking nighttime appointments during the week. This is a great way to show off your sculpted and toned body; your bad ass motorcycle, car or truck; a gorgeous evening gown (that you don’t mind getting just a little bit wet); or do a fun photo of your kids playing. We are excited about this and hope that you are too!!!
Saturday, June 22nd was a gorgeous day for a gorgeous couple. Kori and Joel, and their family and friends, are a wonderful group of fun, outgoing folks! Every detail of their special day was exquisite. The couple was married at St. Stephen Martyr and then rocked the night away at The Kent State University Center. Everyone was ready to celebrate from the first drop of champagne and the crowd kept the dance floor packed all night.
To the lovely couple!!!
Saturday, June 1, 2013 ended up being a beautiful day for Craig and Natalie to exchange their vows (we are very grateful that once again, the weather forecast was wrong!) Our day began at the home of the bride and groom where the bride and her maids were getting dressed. Once the makeup was perfected and dresses were on, the limo whisked the ladies off to Basilica of St. John the Baptist in downtown Canton. Surrounded by family and friends, the couple said their “I do’s.” After the formal photos, we were able to head to Brookside Country Club and had a couple of hours to create a variety of fun and romantic images. The reception itself was gorgeous – the amazing centerpieces filled the hall with a lovely aroma, the Beach Boys kept the dance floor rocking (inside the hall and outside on the patio), and everyone was entertained by the monogram ice luge. It was a perfect day for a VERY in love couple and two families truly did become one.
Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your day. Cheers!
Ahh spring! The season of new life and of new little faces in the world and in our studio. Here are a couple of cuties we have been blessed to meet within the last couple of weeks.
After a gorgeous week where Ohioans enjoyed 70+ degree weather, it plummeted in time for Joey and Nicole’s wedding on April 20th. But as the priest said, it is a sign of hope that the flowers are blooming and the trees are budding in the face of a seemingly endless winter; and it is a sign of hope that in a world where there is such suffering young couples are standing strong together, proclaiming their love and exchanging their vows. (This was also the same week that the Boston Marathon bombings took place so it was especially powerful). Joey and Nikki were surrounded by friends and family as they commited to one another at Queen of Heaven in Green. In between the ceremony and reception, the bridal party gathered for food and photos at the bride’s parents’ home before celebrating the night away at Guy’s Party Center. Gotta say that kicking the dance portion off with a full party Harlem Shake was a great start to what was a very fun evening.
Tim and Brooke were married on a bit of a brisk day early in April. After getting ready at The Hair Shoppe and Spa in North Canton, the couple exchanged vows at Indian Run Christian Church. They then dashed off in a hot Maserati to the Foltz Center. Fresh flowers filled and stunning centerpieces filled the gorgeous hall (which the groomsmen spent the morning decorating). All in all it was a great day and we were so glad to be a part of it!!!
Saturday, October 27th wasn’t the warmest, sunniest day of the year but the joy and laughter from this great couple and their family and friends was enough to warm any dreary day. While we had plans of doing some photos in downtown Canton after their ceremony at St. John the Baptist, mother nature had other plans so we changed gears and headed to Fox and Hound to do what we could inside. The bridal party was so much fun that anywhere we went would have been great!
The evening ended at the McKinley Grand Ballroom. The decor was GORGEOUS and the details STUNNING. Everything from the painted wine bottle centerpieces, to the brooch bouquet, to the personally designed name cards, menus and programs was PERFECT. Jerry Humes kept the dancefloor packed as he ALWAYS does and Adam and Christina spent their wedding day surrounded by love.
Thank you so much for the honor of photographing your day!!!
We were SOO excited to shoot our first wedding at the amazing Gervasi Vineyard and even more honored to work with this couple. It’s always a huge deal to us when families choose us multiple times to document important events in their lives. (About 7 years ago, the groom’s brother and his fabulous wife, chose us to document their Napa Valley Wedding and as their family has grown they have continued to select us AND recommended us to Amanda and Jeff). We love referrals!
Fortunately, the couple had planned to see one another ahead of time (look at their cute first look photo in the vineyard!) So we were able to capture the gorgeous landscaping and backdrop that Gervasi provides. Not soon after we wrapped up did the winds blow in a very quick, but very powerful, thunderstorm. And about 10 minutes later, the skies cleared, a vibrant rainbow appeared, and their ceremony and reception went off without a hitch. I loved all of the little details of Amanda and Jeff’s wedding – the cowboy boots, the twine around the bouquets, postcards for guests to write their wishes on and place in a suitcase, the tree truck with their initials carved out, and last but not least, the red shoes Amanda’s father donned for dancing. It was a memorable and moving day and we are so thankful we got to be there!
To Jeff & Amanda!!!
