Gotta love this couple! My sister, Rachel, and her adorable husband-to-be are getting married! Brad and I couldn’t be happier for these two. They’re planning a destination wedding in Florida, for which I’ll photograph and be the matron-of-honor (of course Brad will help with the pictures)!  I took Rachel and Brent’s engagement pictures in Columbus last week. Brent pretended to be annoyed when we picked through his wardrobe and made him drive us all around Columbus for scenic spots (we went to Dublin, OSU, and other random pretty areas), but I know he was secretly enjoying every bit of it! Brent, we can’t wait until you’re part of our family. I love you two!

When we met with Melissa and Nick last year at Starbucks, we fell in love with them right away. This couple likes to have a good time! Their wedding last Saturday was a blast. Melissa looked like Cinderella in her dress, and Nick cracked us up with his “Backstreet Boys” impressions. Although the forecast called for rain, the sky was crystal clear for their outdoor ceremony. During the reception, Melissa and Nick wanted to duck outside for some more pictures – some of which I think are really cool! Melissa and Nick, thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day.

Andi and Jay’s wedding last Friday was full of class. Of course we are biased toward Friday evening weddings, as we were married on a Friday – we just like to be different! From the columns in front of the Cleveland church to the ornate balconies at the country club reception, this wedding was beautiful. We truly adored working with Andi and Jay, as they were both so gracious and easy going. They planned plenty of time for photos, which is a photographer’s dream. Here are some of our favorite shots from the day. Enjoy!

This morning I took pictures of one of my girlfriend’s 6 week old twin nieces. Cayanna and Caylee were so precious! The girls’ big sister, Cadyn, was a big help with their pacifiers. Those babies are lucky to have her around! There isn’t much posing when it comes to photographing newborns, but I think all three girls  (and their mom!) were naturals in front of the camera! Check out some of the photos.

On Saturday evening, Brad and I had the privilege of photographing “There’s No Place Like Home,” a dance performance by Praise His Name with Dancing (phnwd.tripod.com). This was a new experience for us – photographing a dance recital was a first. We took many experimental shots, and I think we got some cool images that capture the motion of the dances. Photographing the show was such a neat experience for me, as I used to dance with this company. I wish I was still that flexible! Scott and Diana, the owners of PHNWD, do an amazing job with this performance every year. Check out some of the pictures from Saturday!

What a beautiful day! The sun was shining, and Catharine looked stunning. The courthouse in Washington, PA made for great pictures, and the old hotel was exquisite. The ceremony was held outside, and Catharine’s veil caught the sunlight just right to get some glowing shots. Catharine and Joe looked so in love as they danced under the antiqued pavilion. These are some of my favorite shots from the day. I hope you enjoy!
