When Annalise and I were planning their engagement session, she said she would like it at their gorgeous wedding venue, Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens in Akron Ohio. I remember the day I met Annalise. It was at a bridal show in Hudson and she was with her mom and some of her entourage. We had an amazing connection and I was so excited that she picked me to be their photographer. To get to capture all the things that mean the most to them and one of those is their sweet 7 year old pup, Yoshi.
As we took their engagement photos, daydreaming about their upcoming “I do’s” the whole time, Annalise mentioned they were excited and looking forward to seeing where they would spend their few moments as husband and wife. Their ceremony location! It isn’t 100% in stone, but this session allowed them to look around and see the options they would have.
Annalise told me that photos were not their thing, but they were so excited for their engagement session. Let’s be honest here: how are these two not the cutest together?! The way Sean makes Annalise smile and laugh is intoxicating and I can’t wait to see it again in June 2022 on their wedding day! They rocked their engagement session and you could never tell that photos aren’t their thing. When it comes to engagement sessions, the most important thing I can do as your photographer is create the images of your dreams. So giving you the relaxing and super fun experience, while capturing you as a couple is what I live for. So delivering on wishes like these is so rewarding!
I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to tell Annalise and Sean’s love story. And I can’t wait for their wedding! Congratulations on your engagement, you two! I hope the rest of your wedding planning experience is effortless and filled with joy!

“The photos that stand out to me most are the ones of my husband and I dancing the polka at our reception with my 93-year-old grandparents. I feel so fortunate to have had both of them in person at our wedding, let alone up dancing on the dance floor with us, even for a brief time. I still cry when I look at them. They will be so special to us in years to come.”
“Heather knew getting photos with my grandparents
was very important to me, and she delivered!“

“However, what won me and my husband over was our first meeting with her. She was the most bubbly, pleasant, friendly, loving human being. We appreciated her warmth and her attention to detail. She was well-established, a wonderful planner, and she truly wanted us to have the greatest memories.”
“I loved her pictures. It was like love at first sight!”

“She has such a passion for her couples and capturing their true love story! It shows completely when she is snapping away. Her facial expressions and the gasps she makes when she takes a picture that she loves are just the best! We never had someone get as excited as her when taking pictures! And we love it!”
“Heather truly makes you feel like you are her
favorite couple ever to work with!”
