Logan and Jonathan!

Where do we start!? What an amazing couple, family, wedding party, reception...and how about that dress! Thank goodness the weather cooperated and everyone braved the cold because we were like kids in a candy store photographing this wedding, and I have to give all that credit to Logan and Jonathan!
What we admired most about their wedding is that they truly made it their own from start to finish. They Incorporated so many personal touches from their love of color, sense of fun and even the Budweiser beer truck at the reception (Dad's baseball team is sponsored in part by Budweiser). They even had the reception tent converted into an ice rink for the rehearsal dinner and played hockey the night before the wedding. How's that for fun? Truly a great mix of fun, whimsy and elegance...who would have thought that those concepts could go together so well?

A special congrats to Logan and Jonathan for being such a wonderful couple and for celebrating their wedding in their own unique fashion. Thank you to the Hanners for hosting such a fabulous event and welcoming us into your home (I don't think Mark wanted to leave...ever). Congrats and enjoy New Zealand!

We photographed their engagement session just days before the wedding, which you can see in the post below. Feel free to leave messages for the new Mr. & Mrs. Aal by clicking on 'comments rock' just below the post.

PS. Thanks to the Jack Garrett Band for the great music. You had the dance floor packed as always!

Logan and Jonathan's E-Session!

We managed to squeeze in Logan and Jonathan's engagement session the week before their wedding. Since they live out of state, they could only be photographed when they visited home. We're so glad that they made the long drive from Chillicothe. They're such a cute couple and we had a blast photographing them!

Molly & Andrew!

You would never know it from looking at the pictures, but Molly had H1N1 while we were photographing their engagement session. Determined to get their save-the-date/holiday cards done, Molly braved through the session just fine. That wedding 'to do' list waits for no one!

We did a 5x7 postcard printed on pearl paper with a sort of grunge winter blues design to tie in with the background. The cards turned out great thanks to Molly's perseverance. Well done!

Christine & Mark!

Christine and Mark made it home for the Thanksgiving holiday and we were able to squeeze in their engagement session amongst all the holiday activities. They braved the very cold temperatures that Friday, and even had gone to cut down their Christmas tree earlier...meaning they had spent a lot of time out in the cold that day.

Since they both went to the University of Dayton, we decided that it would make a great backdrop for their photos. Despite the temperature, the session turned out great and we can't wait for the wedding next year at Country Club of the North. Congrats!
