Jessica + Josh - Elopement // Lakeview Beach Lorain, OH Portrait, Fashion & Wedding Photographer

"I just can't believe I am actually married to you!"
 These were the words spoken to Jessica by Josh with the biggest smile I have ever seen - That one sentence summed up their day perfectly.

I have never seen two people more ecstatic to become husband and wife. Their smiles were endless and their love was so real and evident in every grin, touch, and glance.  I have been to countless weddings, met tons of brides/grooms, and been apart of capturing so many special moments, and yet something about this simple joining of two people touched me so deeply. There wasn't a schedule to follow, a reception to put together, a bridal party to clothe, a venue to schedule, just two people deeply in love with one another. Don't get me wrong, I love the traditional wedding and all the lovely details, but sometimes the events without the distractions of making everything perfect is what makes it perfect. 

It's your turn to be apart of and enjoy the love that Jessica and Josh share on one of the happiest days of their life. 

Jessica and Josh - 
I hope that 20, 40, or even 60 years from now you will be just as happy to be married as you were on your wedding day. I can't express how much I loved being apart of such a special day, your joy was contagious. I look forward to seeing how your marriage and love for each other grows throughout the years!
Love you two!

Modern Audrey Hepburn - Leavenworth, WA // Cleveland, OH Portrait, Fashion & Wedding Photographer

- Audrey Hepburn - 
The woman who held her head high, moved with grace, and spoke with passion. Redefining the age's view of beauty, she was known for her slim silhouette, bold brows, and innocent/doe like eyes.  Her unique style and personality has always been a constant inspiration to me and my photography. Anna Gray assisted me as a model to finally be able to portray my view of a modern day Audrey Hepburn and it was amazing to be able to draw inspiration from a icon and create my own unique images/look! Please feel free to pin and/or share these images - My goal is to inspire and bring joy to as many people as possible through my work

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone." - Audrey Hepburn

Model - Anna Gray 
Hair and MUA - Janelle Putrich
