Desi & Kyle’s E-Session

We had an amazing time with Desi and Kyle this past weekend shooting their engagement session. Let me start by saying this is the first E-Session we have done this year with no snow! My Floridan blood was very excited about this! Moving on, lets talk a little about this awesome couple:

Desi isn’t just one of our gorgeous 2018 Brides, she’s also like part of the family. I have heard so many fun stories from when she was growing up with Joe’s sister, I felt like I already knew her even though this was our first time meeting. Desi & Kyle live in Boston, and are planning their May wedding in Ohio. It was so much fun to chat with them about where they live, it made me add Massachusetts to the list of places I want to visit.

The weather absolutely loved them, to our surprise the sun was shining and it was actually bearable for them to take their coats off for a few shots. We found this hidden spot in the heart of Mill Creek Park, a cozy little nature center that had old charm with a hint of Victorian touches. Other then the clear fact that winter has made its way through there in the recent months, it was the perfect spot.

Spring was poking it’s head out in a few places, and this lovely little patch of bright green moss was screaming for us to capture it with Desi’s breathtaking ring.

These two were just so much fun to work with, we could not budge the smiles off of their faces. Their mood was absolutely contagious, and their love for each other effortless.


As I was looking through their session I thought of a quote that I’ve read in the past…

“The goal of love is to laugh forever with someone you take serious.”

It’s clear to see that they will have many years of laughter in their future…

We can’t wait for Desi & Kyle to say “I do.”




This is how we roll…

One of our favorite types of sessions are engagement sessions. First of all, they are so much fun! Secondly, it gives us a great opportunity to get to know our bride and groom. We cannot stress enough how important it is for a subject to be comfortable around their photographers. Especially a bride and groom who will spend upwards to 12 hours with us on their wedding day. We have found that engagement sessions are a great way for couples to feel comfortable around us before their big day.

So here is a little bit from our most recent engagement session Danny and Pricie…

When we met Danny and Pricie at our very first meeting we knew right off the bat that they aren’t the typical bride and groom.
They referred to themselves as “Gearheads” and explained their love of old cars. As soon as we heard that Joe and I looked at each other with light bulbs going off in our minds, we are going to have fun with this one!

Pricie & Danny decided they wanted to go for a rockabilly themed E-session, (how cool!) since their wedding is going to be based around cars it tied into their theme perfectly.
We shot at Sliver Bridge and Mill Creek Park in Youngstown, Ohio.
No detail on their part was missed, from Pricie’s perfectly matched lipstick and nail polish to Danny’s wallet chain. They looked like they came straight out of a movie, literally.
It. Was. Perfect.
Their Monte Carlo even fit on the bridge like a glove.

Not only were Pricie & Danny on point but Mother Nature was on point that night as well.
The sky was amazing.

They may look fierce, but they are such a sweet and genuine couple.
Right now their big day is just about a year away, from the attention to detail they put into their engagement session we are certain their wedding is sure to blow us away…
