Sarah and CJ told me at their Christmas mini that they were expecting! It was still a secret at the time but they wanted to do a few cute photos for an announcement. ;) Fast forward about 7 months and she is here! They have been coming to us for a few years and it's just so, so exciting to see them become parents!

When I arrived at their house for the session and saw CJ holding Hannah, I said, "Oh my gosh, look how in love with her he is!" He said, "Yea, I'm in trouble." It was so sweet to watch him with her! The photo of him holding her feet and staring at her is one of my all time faves.

Congrats on your sweet little bundle Yacko fam!

Kelly + Brian | Downtown Toledo Wedding | Toledo, OH Wedding Photographer

On March 10th we had the pleasure of photographing Kelly and Brian's intimate and perfectly unique wedding in Downtown Toledo! Every detail was spectacular! Knowing Kelly, I knew they would be!! She even wore two different skirts for the day. Both made our hearts pitter patter. Leather jacket for the second skirt portraits? YEEEESSSSSSSSS.

They got ready and had their first look at the new Renaissance Hotel located downtown. If you haven't been you should definitely check it out. It's spectacular! It is such a cool and trendy spot. It's really the ideal place to get ready if you're downtown! You will feel like you're in Chicago. After the tulle had been put on, the first looks had and the portraits were taken, we all head on over to The Oliver House for the ceremony and Reception. Again, SO COOL and so different. It fit these two perfectly! 

The way that these two look at each other says it all. We couldn't be happier for them or more honored that they chose us to be a part of their day! It is truly one of our favorite weddings of all time.

Congratulations Kelly and Brian! We <3 you!

Oh, and happy one month anniversary!

Amanda + David | Downtown Toledo Engagement Session | Toledo Engagement Photographer

EngagementJessica PattonComment

Sometime back in October, we met these two at the same place they had their very first date. The Maumee Bay Brewing Co! I love that they chose the spot where it all began for their engagement session. You will probably be able to tell from the photos that these two are hilarious and fun and don't take themselves all too seriously. Which we love!! The first part of the session took on kind of a beer theme. Which was cool because they love beer! 

Our love for symmetry also shines a little in this session. One of the many reasons we love shooting downtown! So many cool buildings.

For the last part of the session we cruised through the Middlegrounds Metropark! Always a fave.

Their wedding is quickly approaching in May and we cannot wait! 

Check out our faves!
