As a Northeast Ohio engagement photographer, I’ve been to some amazing locations for photo sessions. And let’s be honest, I couldn’t ask for a more perfect area to search. Paige had a classy vision of black and white for her engagement session. It would also be complimenting her black and white wedding day vision. Boy, did McKinley Monument Park deliver! With the white pebble walkways, elegant willow trees with the river, and the marble staircase of the monument it brought it all together.
When I first got in touch with Paige and Jonathan it was actually through her sister, Taylor, for Taylor’s engagement session a couple years ago. Paige was going to be in need of high school senior photos and when she saw the location she reached out. She wanted me to do her senior session at the same place, Kingwood Center Gardens. During her senior session I got to meet Jonathan as well. And it was such a great time. And capturing these two along the way at Taylor’s wedding and connecting I just knew their day was coming. Once I saw the engagement photo came across my feed I got so excited for them! These two were meant for each other. I mean the way they look at each other and hold hands it is definitely the kind of love that lasts forever.
And when Paige reached out about their wedding I literally got all giddy and so beyond honored! With September filling up I was even more excited to see that their day was available. And as we prepared for the engagement session I just knew McKinley Monument Park would be the perfect backdrop for their classy black and white engagement session. When it comes to engagement sessions, the most important thing I can do as your photographer is create the images of your dreams that bring your personalities to life. So delivering on these wishes is so rewarding!
Whether these images become the save the dates on the fridges of their loved ones or just the art decorating their home, I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to tell Paige and Jonathan’s love story during a fun-filled McKinley Monument Park engagement session. 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!”
