Life's a beach!

I just got back from the beach where I took my family and 2 of my sons friends. We had beautiful weather all week. As soon as we got there a storm was clearing and a rainbow appeared and I had my camera ready. We all had a great time and ate a a lot of good seafood. My son is a going to be a senior this year so I thought some photographs of him on the beach would be a good way to start his session.

Sheraton in Cuyahoga Falls

What another great day! We just barely beat the rain again this week. We were in the back of Seiberling Naturealm when it started to sprinkle and Katie took off running because she didn't want to get her beautiful gown wet. I took a shortcut through the grass so I could catch a few images of her running but she caught up with me in no time even with the dress and heels on! I managed to get one image before we got to the limo bus and when I saw a pink umbrella I knew what I had to do. The reception was at the Sheraton in Cuyahoga Falls in the ballroom. It was decorated with white linens and some unique centerpieces. In the dark with the twinkling lights it looked amazing. After a great meal the band Grand Avenue kept everyone dancing the entire evening. It was great to see a lot of familiar faces again this year and thank you to all the family members who came up to us throughout the day and said so many nice things! We loved working with you again too!

Nicole and Ben

I love local weddings! Not only do I stay close to home but I get to see familiar faces again too. Nicole and Ben were married at the Community Bible Church in Rootstown and had the reception at the K of C hall in Randolph. Nicole said the only things important to her were a beautiful dress, a good photographer and fresh roses on the reception tables (and of course.....Ben!) We all prayed a storm wouldn't but a damper on our plans for the day and we weren't let down. We were able to go the the Grotto behind St. Joseph's Church for a few photographs without getting wet.
