When planning an outdoor May wedding (especially here in Ohio), it's hard to say what kind of weather you're going to get. Sometimes you get rained out, sometimes it's blazing hot. Every once in awhile, you really luck out and everything comes together just perfectly.
Amanda + Nick's wedding just happened to be one of those perfect outdoor wedding days.
The ceremony location was in a stand of trees at the top of a hill with a great view of the surrounding area. There were a couple clouds that day (just enough to keep it from warming up too much), but plenty of sunshine as well. It was beautiful!
One of the my favorite details of the day was Amanda's incredible 14-foot veil! And of course, when you have a long veil, you have to take some awesome wind-blown veil photos :-)

CJ and I met last year when he was the groomsmen at another awesome couple's wedding (thanks Nathan + Christy!). Since we both enjoy nerdy things including gaming, movies, photography and putting the Titanic song on random movie scenes, we immediately hit it off.
So, when CJ contacted me last month to photograph his proposal, I knew it was going to be good. And I was SO right!
CJ did such an incredible job planning this proposal, and keeping everything secret from Megan. He chose a gorgeous location, and everything just turned out perfect!
Congrats CJ and Megan! You guys are the bomb :-)
Note: a special thanks to my amazing wife Ashley for being an awesome second photographer from the other side of the creek!

Managua, Nicaragua holds a special place in my heart, so it was pretty great to spend some time with Wendy + Mario while I was in town for another project.
We only had about 15 minutes together, and the sun had already set, but these guys were ready to go! Can't believe how many great images we got despite our short time together.

Even though the weather didn't fully cooperate, Alexandra and Eliot rocked their engagement session! They didn't let a little rain and chilly temperatures keep us from making some awesome photos.
Together we explored Clifton Gorge, capturing their love for adventure, fun and each other! They even stayed out after dark and put up with letting me play around with some different lights to capture uniquely lit photos. I look forward to sharing their wedding day with this fun couple!

Here's the next blog post from my time making portraits in Nicaragua! Keep your eyes on the blog over the next month or so to see all the awesome seniors and families (and 1 couple!) that I got to hang out with in Nica this winter.
Da Som and her friend Cindy were my very first scheduled senior portrait sessions for my time in Nica! Shooting in a new place, with people you've never seen before, in a climate that you're not accustomed to in the month of February can all be pretty challenging, but thankfully Da Som and Cindy helped me get off to a great start :-)
