From the Archives: Brandy and Justin | East Canton, Ohio Golf Club Wedding

One thing I love about being a photographer is getting to reconnect with childhood friends and being part of some of their most happy moments. Seeing people I've known since we were 6 having babies and getting married and rocking awesome careers is something I'll never get used to. I mean, we just graduated high school like what... 2, 3 years ago?!

Brandy and I went to elementary school together and grew up right down the road from each other. And a couple years ago she tied the knot with Justin in a supremely beautiful, love-filled day. There were happy tears, raucous laughter, two rockin' dresses and an incredible sunset to top it all off. I'm really excited to take a trip down memory lane and share some images from their wedding.

Brandy and Justin — doesn't it feel like this was just yesterday and a lifetime ago all at once?!

Lauren and Brian | Canton, Ohio Hoover Hall Wedding

Last week I shared photos from Lauren and Brian's Sippo Lake engagement session. Today I'm sharing a handful (ok, like 20 handfuls) of favorites from their wedding day. 

Proof that high school sweethearts will always be a thing, Lauren and Brian's big day was a long time in the making. It might have been the day that it was made official, but these two families have blended seamlessly together from the beginning. I'm honored to have been part of the story and I can't wait to see what life has in store for two of my very favorite people. And to photograph it, too!

Lauren and Brian, I hope you're ready for some one-year anniversary photos later this year — because we're totally making that happen.
