Windows on the River Wedding

Nick and Megan are two true soulmates.  Their entire wedding day was full of jokes, bursts of laughter and uncontrollable smiles.

We started the day at the Renaissance Hotel.  Megan was getting ready for her and Nick’s first look (which I always love photographing and HIGHLY recommend because of all the feels) with her girls helping her out.

First looks are always my absolute favorite.  These two are SO in love that they started tearing up the moment they saw each other for the first time on their wedding day.  It was so sweet that I even had to wipe away a stray tear behind the camera.

We headed to the Cleveland Public Library for their group pictures.  The beautiful marble mixed with their classic wedding colors were the perfect blend.  They truly made the pictures just as amazing as this wonderful couple.

Nick and Megan are just amazing.  These two are so incredibly in love.

Once finished, everyone went to Windows on the River for the wedding and reception.  Windows on the River has such a lovely atmosphere and was perfect for these two!

Have you ever seen traditional Greek dances?  They are AMAZING!!!

Congratulations to these two.  You both deserve all of the happiness in the world!!

Winter Wonderland Senior Pictures

Even though the weather has been mild and – dare I say? – Spring feels like it’s right around the corner, I just have to share this snowy High School Senior Session.

Rachel’s mother and I have known each other for a few years.  I was told that Rachel absolutely had to have me as her daughter’s photographer for senior pictures.  She loved the work I had done for her friends’ pictures in the past and I was beyond flattered to be on the ‘must-have-photography’ list for so long!

Rachel is an avid ice skater, as well as skating instructor, so it was imperative that she do her senior pictures in the snow.  After an unexcpected snowfall, Rachel’s mom called me that day and we had her session scheduled for immediately after school the same day.  We wanted to make sure we got the pictures before the weather changed its mind and decided to get warm again.

I absolutely love doing pictures in the snow, whether it be Senior Pictures, Weddings, Engagement Pictures or Family Photography.  Check out this awesome shoot so you can be convinced that snowy pictures are the best!

Patterson Fruit Farm Wedding

If there’s one place that I LOVE to get amazing bakery from, it’s Patterson Fruit Farm.  Mix that with my other favorite love – photographing weddings – and I am one happy girl!

Jillian and Chad wanted a wedding that was rustic, whimsical and as DIY as possible to make their wedding one -of-a-kind.  Not only are they close with their families, they wanted everyone to feel like a VIP with their handmade touches throughout the venue.  Even though Patterson Farm was hopping with activity from their annual Fun Fest, it only added to the welcoming atmosphere of their wedding.  And the cake!  The cake was one of the best fall wedding cakes I’ve ever seen!  I had to steal a slice and it was absolutely decadent! It was created by Kathy’s Cakes in Solon and it was a masterpiece both inside and out.

They were such a great couple and were willing to traipse through the brush of the meadow behind Patterson’s to get some lovely sunset pictures.  Their reception was filled with so many cute handmade decorations!  They definitely accomplished their goal and the room was cozy and welcoming.

Check out their awesome rustic wedding!

Beautiful Chagrin Falls Wedding

Kelly and Chris have been two clients of mine that are always in my thoughts.  Not only did I go down to Columbus for their engagement session, we became fast friends throughout the months leading up to their big day.

Their caring, interested and loving personalities didn’t stop with the warmth they showed me.  It was apparent that they cared about each and every person taking time out of their busy schedules to celebrate their wedding day with them.  Their wedding and reception was at the Tanglewood Club.  Kelly and Chris planned to do a first look so they had ample time to do their pictures with the bridal party before the ceremony.  (By the way, theirs is my favorite first look of all time right now!) Because we were able to get the pictures done in more then enough time, the guests didn’t have to wait long after the ceremony for the reception to start.

The decor in the reception hall was straight out of a magazine.  Each table had a cake as their centerpiece for guests to enjoy right after dinner.  The personal touches on the sweetheart table, cake and even the forks were perfect.  The Marino Brother’s kept the dance floor packed all evening, making this one of the most fun receptions I’ve been to in a while!

IX Show Ready!!

Today was a busy day!  I was at the IX Center getting my booth ready for the Today’s Bride IX Show this weekend.  Today was set-up day and, thanks to some friends, my booth went up without a hitch.

My super amazing handyman husband built the booth for me while I was the helpful assistant holding things, getting things, getting the wrong things, painting, staining and telling him how wonderful he is to me.

In the beginning stages of planning all I said was, “I want a barn theme that plays up my business name Orchard Photography.”  Within 10 minutes, he had this concept sketched out. It has been so exciting to see the booth develop from concept to complete.

Stop by and see me at the show!  I’m excited to share my work and packages with you!
