I started the wedding morning with Rachel and her bridesmaids at her friend's home.  Rachel's girls made her a scrapbook full of meaningful photos and handwritten letters, so Rachel and her maid and matron of honor paused from a busy morning to sip mimosas and reminisce about their friendship through the years.

The exchange of gifts and love letters between a bride and groom is always one of my favorite moments of wedding mornings.

I may have gone overboard with the detail shots, but I am a sucker for pretty things!  Between Rachel's sparkling gold shoes, the Jimmy Choo perfume bottle, shimmering gold jewelry, and the luxurious faux fur shoulder wrap, I might have been a little caught up in all the extravagance!

While I was in a trance of all things sparkly and beautiful with the ladies, Joel documented Cody's last moments as a bachelor with his best friends as they got ready at Stambaugh Auditorium.  After a quick morning of preparation for the guys, Cody was a stunning groom in his classic black tux.

Rachel's father waited anxiously to see his little girl walk off the elevator as a beautiful bride before the ceremony began.  I adore the relationship Mr. Biagetti has with his daughters.

Christman Hall in Stambaugh Auditorium is one of the most beautiful ceremony spaces in the Youngstown area.  Natural light spills into the large windows to highlight the ornate details throughout the room, making the perfect backdrop for a timeless and elegant wedding ceremony.  Rachel was a breathtaking bride as she walked down the aisle, as you can see from the look on her groom's face.

Their wedding was on one of the first cold November days, but the bridal party braved the weather for a quick trip to Fellows Riverside Gardens at Mill Creek Park.  The colorful Lake Glacier backdrop is at it's peak during our chilly NE Ohio fall season.

After a brief park visit, the newlyweds stopped by Lanai Lounge in Boardman to warm up.  They told us the story about how they first met there.  The story began as Cody sent a drink to Rachel during her night out with her friend, and the rest is history!

When we walked into this reception space, I was blown away.  In addition to the formal place settings and centerpieces we expect to see, everything had a magical glow!  The Embassy, Green's Floral, and Damon with D and R Audio took care of every detail to exceed our expectations!  The evening was a joyful celebration of love!

I was reminded of the immeasurable value of photographs of loved ones.  Just a couple weeks after the wedding day, this sweet woman and grandmother, Phyllis Biagetti, lived her last day on earth.  I was thankful that I was able to capture precious memories of her throughout the day, which are now more valuable to her family than ever.  Hold your loved ones close today, and never miss an opportunity to make memories with them.

DeSantis Family | In-Home Christmas Session | Hubbard, OH http://www.photosbyevans.com/blog/2017/12/desantis-family-in-home-christmas-session-hubbard-oh I can't believe it's already been 6 months since we photographed Santino's in-home newborn photo session!  I was excited to create some Christmas memories for the DeSantis family and see how much their baby boy has grown.  I wasn't sure it was possible, but he just keeps getting more adorable with every day that passes!  He has the perfect chunky thighs and arms, and the most gorgeous sparkling blue eyes!

During most in-home lifestyle sessions, I don't bring along props or plan for a certain theme since I'm always looking for candid moments, but I also enjoy incorporating our clients' ideas in each session.  Santino's mom, Amber, was ready to go with adorable outfits and Christmas decorations for their family.  We found a cozy spot in the living room and Amber plugged in some white Christmas lights for us.  I've seen photos like this done in the dark with just the glow of the Christmas lights, but I'm glad I brought along my flash because I couldn't stand the thought of missing out on seeing Santino's bright baby blues in all the photos!

How cute are his little baby Santa pajamas in front of the Christmas tree?!  Mom cheered him up with some OREOS, but sadly for him, Mom rescued the cookie before it made it all the way into his mouth!

Santino's dad, David, poked a little fun at this next outfit, but I think it's one of the cutest things I've ever seen!  Santino is a little gentleman relaxing by the fireplace with his hat and bowtie!  Even his sister, Chloe, thought it was a good idea!

Kun Family | In-Home Newborn Session | Boardman, OH http://www.photosbyevans.com/blog/2017/11/kun-family-in-home-newborn-session-boardman-oh As wedding photographers, we are always overjoyed when we are invited to document our bridal couples' journeys through the years following the wedding.  We photographed Megan and Joe's gorgeous wedding at St. Charles in Boardman just over two years ago and loved working with them.  Since they lived out of town, we didn't get the opportunity to get together again when their first son was born.  We were happy to get back in touch recently and Megan gave us the great news that they were expecting another baby, and also that they moved back to the Youngstown area!  I couldn't wait to photograph an in-home lifestyle session to celebrate their sweet newborn baby boy and growing family!  Their love has only grown more beautiful since their wedding day!

But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time."  I hope their love and friendship only grows over the years, with just enough sibling rivalry to keep things interesting!

Grischow Wedding | Tyler History Center & Byzantine Center at the Grove | Youngstown, OH http://www.photosbyevans.com/blog/2017/11/grischow-wedding-tyler-history-center-byzantine-at-the-grove-youngstown-oh If there was an award for World's Sweetest Couple, Eric and Tizzy would surely be in the running!  They celebrated their burgundy and blush fall wedding on a gorgeous, sunny afternoon at Tyler History Center in Downtown Youngstown.  The morning of the wedding, I was able to join Tizzy and her bridesmaids at her home while they got ready for the big day.  The bridal hair and makeup was ahead of schedule, so the girls got to enjoy some extra time relaxing and enjoying the bride's last moments together before tying the knot.

I love seeing the gifts that grooms give to their brides on wedding mornings!  Tizzy opened a gorgeous necklace from Eric to wear during the wedding.  It turns out that Tizzy's grandma was in on the surprise, because she even went out of her way to give Tizzy a special decoy necklace so Tizzy wouldn't buy one herself!  Finding out how sneaky her sweet grandmother was added so much laughter to our morning.  You'll have to ask one of the girls about the Tizzy necklace!

How beautiful is this bride in her flannel shirt?!  Tizzy's smile and sparkling eyes could light up a room.  If you think she's stunning now, just wait until you see her in the wedding gown!

Great bridesmaids make a huge difference on wedding days, both for the bride, and for the photographers!  Having a group of girls who spoil their friend on her wedding day makes my heart happy.  These ladies also welcomed me into their tight knit circle of friends for the day so I could capture all the special moments between them and Tizzy.

Eric also had a great morning with his groomsmen as they suited up, hung out at the house, and posed for a few pictures outside with Joel.

I think I need a tissue!  I always get drawn into the emotion of a wedding day.  This was just one of the many beautiful moments between Tizzy and her mom.

I've always heard that a man will treat his wife the same way he treats his mother.  Throughout the day, I saw Eric look at his mom with such great love and respect, and I have a feeling Tizzy appreciated that about her groom long before I did.

Tizzy and her dad planned a first look.  We found a quiet room in Tyler History Center, and Tizzy waited for her dad to walk in and see his little girl as a bride.  So many tears!

Eric and Tizzy wanted to save their first look for the wedding, but they exchanged love letters before the ceremony.

This was our first time photographing a wedding at Tyler History Center, and it is an amazing Youngstown wedding venue.  My favorite part is all the natural light spilling into the windows.  Here comes the bride!

The officiant stopped during the ceremony and asked the bride and groom to turn around and look at all the guests who came to support their marriage.  For the bride and groom, the wedding day flies by quickly and it is difficult to take everything in.  I loved the opportunity that he gave them to slow down and appreciate all the love in the room.

With Youngstown State University just down the street, Eric and Tizzy knew they wanted to make a stop at Williamson College of Business and around the YSU campus.

Lanterman's Mill Fall Session | Mill Creek Park | Youngstown, OH http://www.photosbyevans.com/blog/2017/10/lantermans-mill-fall-session-mill-creek-park-youngstown-oh After spending a beautiful fall evening running around Lanterman's Mill with these sweet brothers, I just had to share a little sneak peek of their gallery.  Since these handsome guys came from out of town, I was happy to show them one of the most iconic places in Youngstown just inside Mill Creek Park.  Their fall session was full of laughter, silly faces, exploring, and a little bribing from me and their mom!  This was the perfect spot to enjoy the autumn scenery and play in the colorful leaves.

Andrew was happy to see his bride walk down the aisle as the wedding ceremony began.

Traditionally, we've seen many unity candles and sand ceremonies, but Corey and Andrew chose a unique symbol of unity in their new family.  The tree planting unity ceremony included the bride and groom and their girls.

We will be delivering the real kiss shot in the final gallery, but I had to show off this "almost kiss" shot here!  Some of my favorite photos are the moment just before the kiss!

After the wedding ceremony, we went to nearby Harding Park in Hubbard, Ohio for bridal party portraits.  One of the bridesmaids recently gave birth to a perfect baby girl, so Corey was able to sneak in some baby cuddles!

Their wedding reception in the barn at Chestnut Ridge Park and Campground was full of perfectly coordinated details.  The cupcakes looked too pretty to eat!  I also have to give a shout out to Barry Dyngles for catering some of the best barbecue around!

When I photographed Corey and Andrew's Mosquito Lake engagement session, they brought along their tackle boxes and fishing poles because they love fishing together.  Their wedding cake represented their love for the outdoors.  I can't get over the detail of the campfire on the cake, and the "hooked for life" sign is a sweet touch to top it off!

"Get Smitten Not Bitten" was a great idea for a rustic barn wedding.  The insect repellent was just one of the many thoughtful details I saw throughout the day.

The guests will think of Corey and Andrew every time they are enjoying a cold drink with their personalized camo beer koozies.  As wedding photographers, it's fun to see all the unique guest favor ideas at every wedding we photograph.

Instead of a guest book, the bride and groom displayed a wooden guest board for everyone to sign.

I'd highly recommend this warning be displayed at every bar at every wedding we photograph!  It gave me a good laugh, but sometimes an open bar makes some guests forget the power of a camera!

The flower boy and bride's younger nephew cooled down outside of the barn before the party got started!  I can imagine our son doing the same thing!

There are two kinds of bridal couples in this world: those who gently feed their new spouse a sweet bite of cake, and the brides and grooms who walk away with icing everywhere!

Lake Glacier Fall Family Session | Mill Creek Park | Youngstown, OH http://www.photosbyevans.com/blog/2017/10/lake-glacier-fall-family-session-mill-creek-park-youngstown-oh One of my favorite parts of photography is building relationships and seeing families grow over the years.  Last year, Rachael and Rob traveled from out of state and we documented their pre-baby joy and Rachael's perfect baby bump with a maternity session.  Since they don't live in Ohio,  I was honored to photograph their maternity pictures, but didn't expect the opportunity to see them again in the Youngstown area for future photo sessions.  I know the challenges of traveling with kids, so planning a family photo session away from home would require some extra effort!  I have had the joy of knowing Rachael's sister the last few years as her wedding and family photographer, so I was happy to hear updates about Rachael and Rob's family after their baby girl was born.  Almost a year after meeting Rachael and Rob in Girard for their maternity session, I was thrilled when Rachael reached out to us to schedule a family session just in time for their baby's 1st birthday!  One of the biggest perks of living in Ohio is enjoying the changing seasons, especially the beautiful colors of autumn, so we planned their family session to include lots of fall leaves and trees at scenic Lake Glacier in Mill Creek Park.

Not only did I get to meet their baby girl for the first time, but I also got to meet her charming big brothers, too!

Is it just me, or do kids seem cooler these days?  When I was about this age in the 90s, boys had bowl cuts, spiky hair, mullets, and sometimes even the long "tail" in the back.  Maybe it's the modern age of the internet and access to better fashion advice, but these kids have great haircuts and are more stylish than I ever was!  I'm sure Rachael also deserves some of that credit for keeping her kids fashionable!

I don't focus on strict "what to wear" or "what not to wear" for family photos, but this is a great example of what to wear for your next photo session.  You don't need to avoid prints and patterns, and you do not need to have your family all wear the same color.  I would recommend coordinating outfits instead of completely matching outfits in almost every situation.  The plaid in the boys' flannel shirts adds some interest, and the solid colors that the rest of the family are wearing balance it out.  Planning a few coordinating colors works out great, especially when tied together by a simple patterned item of clothing or accessories that include some of those colors.  This family did a beautiful job of mixing and matching reds, whites, and blues for a put-together look that still looks natural.

The kids enjoyed some playtime by the lake while their parents had a few quiet moments together.

During the maternity session last year, Rachael brought along the tiniest pink Converse Chuck Taylor All Star shoes that matched her own.  Now, their baby's feet fit perfectly into those little pink shoes, so we had to get some mommy-daughter photos wearing their matching shoes!

Fall Family Session | Carson's Landing Lake Milton | Berlin Center, OH http://www.photosbyevans.com/blog/2017/10/fall-family-session-carsons-landing-lake-milton-berlin-center-oh I love finding the tucked away, hidden gems around our area for photo sessions.  We've spent countless hours at popular Youngstown photography locations like Fellows Riverside Gardens, Lanterman's Mill, and the silver bridge at Mill Creek Park, all of which are beautiful, but a change of scenery is warmly accepted when we get the chance for something different.  There are many gorgeous areas around Lake Milton, but the dock at Carson's Landing in Berlin Center might have my favorite view just before sunset.  I met Amy, Shawn, and their adorable kids by the lake to capture some fall memories of their family there.

While the rest of the family ran to the car for outfit changes, I got to spend time with this sweet soul.  Sometimes you just need to sit on a quiet boat dock and talk about life.

Courtney & Dom | Mill Creek Park Engagement Session | Youngstown, OH http://www.photosbyevans.com/blog/2017/10/courtney-dom-mill-creek-park-engagement-session-youngstown-oh We had the privilege of getting to know Courtney at her cousin's wedding, and even more recently when we photographed her sister's beautiful wedding this summer. We are honored that their circle of friends and family have invited us into their lives these last few years, especially after they experienced and enjoyed our work firsthand at previous weddings.  When Courtney contacted us with the exciting news that Dom proposed, we were thrilled for them.  We were even more excited that they chose us to document their wedding day!  At their wedding consultation, Courtney and Dom already had fall on their minds for their engagement session.  The silver suspension bridge at Mill Creek Park never disappoints for warm sunlight and beautiful scenery.

After capturing some romantic memories at the princess bridge, we took a short drive to Fellows Riverside Gardens to enjoy the flowers in bloom at the rose garden and get the perfect view of Downtown Youngstown.  We made sure to get Youngstown State University in the background of some photos, since their love story began when they worked together at the YSU rec center.  I can't get over how naturally photogenic Dom and Courtney are together!  I can only imagine what a gorgeous bride and groom they will be on their wedding day!

Family Session at the Creek | Harding Park | Hubbard, Ohio http://www.photosbyevans.com/blog/2017/9/family-session-at-the-creek-harding-park-hubbard-ohio One of the best parts of my job is meeting new families!  Ashley reached out to us to create their first professional photos as a family of three (or family of four if you include their fur baby)!  They wanted a country feel, and the woods at Harding Park in Hubbard, OH delivered!  We found a quiet spot by the creek, and even scoped out the nearby playground.  Their sweet baby might be too young for the slide and swings now, but we had to explore his future playdate options!  I love that all of our clients have such unique personalities, and they showed off their small town roots with red flannel shirts, jeans, and brown boots, just in time for fall!  Even their little guy had the perfect flannel vest!

Magical 1st Birthday Unicorn Session | Sunflower Field | Canfield, Ohio http://www.photosbyevans.com/blog/2017/9/magical-1st-birthday-unicorn-session-sunflower-field-canfield-ohio This birthday princess is one of the world's sweetest babies!  We love her parents dearly and have built an amazing friendship with them over the past couple years while serving alongside each other at our local church.  Chris is a talented artist and musician, and Bridgette is a beautiful vocalist, so I was elated to work with them as fellow creatives and as friends.  Bridgette told me that she had a unicorn outfit for their birthday girl (which wouldn't surprise anyone who knows Bridgette), so this golden sunflower field was the perfect location for her magical 1st birthday photo session!

I love when our clients include their whole family in their child's birthday photo session!  Since I enjoy capturing natural and candid memories, involving the family is one of my favorite ways to document the authentic joy and love in a baby or child's life.  If you are like me as a parent, you probably take more snapshots of your babies by themselves than you have time to print, so I always encourage parents to take advantage the opportunity to join in on the memories!

Even when I'm photographing a family or birthday session, the wedding photographer in me eventually sneaks out!  After the wedding, most married couples don't get professional pictures together as husband and wife after babies enter their family.  While the birthday girl sat next to me watching her parents together, I had the privilege of capturing a glimpse of the love they share for each other.  The romantic golden hour sky showed up at the perfect time!

Happy 1st birthday to our favorite unicorn princess!  We are looking forward to watching you grow, but just don't do it to quickly, baby girl!

Vintage Garden Wedding | Fellows Riverside Gardens | Avion on the Water | Canfield, OH http://www.photosbyevans.com/blog/2017/9/vintage-garden-wedding-fellows-riverside-gardens-avion-on-the-water-canfield-oh This bridal couple has a special place in my heart.  You might remember Nicole and Kenny from our very first blog post, when I gushed over their perfect vintage inspired engagement session at a 1950's style diner in Sharon, PA.  After witnessing their contagious laughter and how they adored each other with every glance, I knew right away that their wedding day would be one of my favorites!  I started the morning with Nicole and her girls at Salon at Creekside in Canfield, where they were pampered by the talented hair and makeup artists and relaxed with mimosas.

After hair and makeup at the salon, Nicole and her "I Do Crew" returned to their hotel suite at Courtyard by Marriott in Canfield to get dressed for the wedding.  This is one of my favorite parts of the wedding day, when I can spend time photographing all the gorgeous details while the bridesmaids get ready.  Nicole's vintage inspired lace dress was beautiful on the hanger, and even more stunning once Nicole was wearing it!

Before Nicole walked up the aisle with her father, Kenny was blindfolded so he could take his first look of his beautiful bride when they got closer on the brick path.  Kenny's reaction is the perfect example of how much he admires Nicole.  This is the look that most brides hope to get when their groom sees her for the first time walking up the aisle.  We were witness to so many warm hearts and joyful tears!

Nicole and Kenny entered the gazebo with their bridal party and closest family to exchange vows, while the rest of the guests surrounded them with love and support.  Their joy is contagious!

I love that Nicole and Kenny scheduled plenty of room in their day for family and bridal party portraits in the gardens.  They were able to enjoy the time with each other and their loved ones while we captured memories for them.

Nicole and Kenny's wedding reception was at one of our favorite Youngstown area venues, Avion on the Water Banquet Center in Canfield.  We enjoyed lots of natural light pouring in the windows during dinner, and a stunning view of the water from the back patio.  The tables were decorated with yellow daisies and red roses for the centerpieces.  The Coca-Cola bottles and black and red accents were perfect for their 1950s vintage theme!  The evening was full of great food, family, friends, dancing, cookies, and endless laughter.

Snyder Family | Golden Hour Farm Session | Hubbard, Ohio http://www.photosbyevans.com/blog/2017/9/snyder-family-golden-hour-farm-session-hubbard-ohio When Sherry said she was coming back to town and wanted to set up a family session with her mom, brother, sister-in-law, and their babies, I couldn't wait to see them.  I grew up with the Snyder family since childhood and always loved their sense of humor, willingness to help others, and welcoming personalities.  Sherry's mom, Sheila, was even my bus driver and school "lunch lady" over the years!  When Sherry told me that they had a farm arranged for the session, I was like a kid on Christmas morning!  The farm is owned by their family friend who generously allowed us to explore the property and visit the animals.  Although the farm is just down the street in Hubbard, Ohio, it was refreshing to get away from the chaos of life and enjoy nature there.  It was even more breathtaking during sunset!

The ponds on the farm are amazing!  I wonder if they'd let me set up a hammock and camp out by the water with a good book?

Sherry's energetic toddler reminds me so much of my own son!  If my boy was on this farm, I have no doubt he would have done anything to hug one of those chickens!  Being the mom of two rambunctious kids has been the best training for photographing family sessions like this!

This family session on the farm was a blast!  I'm so thankful I was given the opportunity to capture memories for the Snyder family, and for the use of this beautiful Hubbard farm!  If you live on a farm or have access to a farm for your own session, I'll be headed your way with my boots and camera in a heartbeat!

King Wedding | Garden Brook Banquet Center | Cortland, Ohio http://www.photosbyevans.com/blog/2017/8/king-wedding-garden-brook-banquet-center-cortland-ohio My husband, Joel, met Dennis over a decade ago when they worked together at a local pizza shop.  They have both since moved on in their careers, but we are happy that we've been able to keep in touch over the years.  After Dennis proposed to his girlfriend, Ashley, we were honored to be asked to photograph their wedding.  We spent the day celebrating with Dennis and Ashley at Garden Brook Banquet Center in Cortland, Ohio, surrounded by their dearest family and friends.

I'm always happy to have time to photograph special details in the morning before the bride gets dressed for the ceremony.

Dennis and Ashley originally planned to have an outdoor wedding at the gazebo, but Garden Brook Banquet Center was the perfect rainy day venue since they also have an indoor space.  Michael Thomas Entertainment was set up inside for the reception later, but Michael went above and beyond to make their wedding stress-free by also running the sound and music during their ceremony.  An experienced DJ like Michael is invaluable, especially when last minute changes need to be made.  Things don't always go as planned on wedding days, but when the bride and groom love each other like Dennis and Ashley do, nothing will get in their way of enjoying every moment!  The ceremony was short, sweet, and genuine!

The rain slowed down just long enough for us to sneak some family and bridal party portraits outside by the gazebo.  Their friends and family added so much fun and love to their day!

The ceremony location was transformed into a dance floor for the reception.  It was a special evening of great food, kind words, dancing, laughter, romantic glances, celebrating, and love.
