Karley and Landon's Stambaugh Auditorium wedding in Youngstown Ohio was absolutely gorgeous! Truly though, their love is even more beautiful. I know, I know, that's super cheesy... but these two... it's true! The details were perfect, the wedding party was amazing, and this place! Ahhh, this place was a stunner.
Truth be told, they could have gotten married anywhere and it still would have been perfect. Anyone can see how much Landon loves his girl just by the way he looks at her. And Karley’s smile, it could light up a room! She's so joyful and fun to be around, and no one can make her smile more than Landon. They're picture perfect.

I could gush over these people and this day for hours. These guys were the sweetest, most thoughtful and fun group of family and friends ever! Days like this one make me wonder how I got so lucky to get to do THIS as my job! I'm so blessed that I get to work with couples like Christine & Ryan... they're the real deal.

I always have a couple favorites when I shoot a wedding or an engagement session and they always tend to be the ones that are moody or a little steamy. There's just so much emotion in those photos when my couples forget that the camera is there.
Most couples want their images to be sweet and happy. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE those. They feel like real life, real happiness... but I've been itching to do a session that's just dark, moody, romantic and a little steamy. Wink, wink ;) When I spoke with Jordyn and found out she was all in for a session like this I was pretty excited to try something a little different!
My dear friend and fabulous assistant, Amy, helped arrange a trip into the gorgeous hills of our Wild & Wonderful for this shoot. Any time we have to take four-wheelers to our location, it's going to be a good day :)
I hope you enjoy this (out of the KFP ordinary) session as much as I do.
I have loved this couple since our first meeting. They're laid back, thoughtful, fun and just all-around genuine people. Their wedding was in Weston West Virginia at Lambert's Winery. What a little gem tucked away right here in our wild & wonderful! They did the most precious first look before their sunset ceremony and finished the night off with dinner and dancing. It was seriously just a perfect day and I couldn't have asked for sweeter people.
From the perfectly thought out little details, to the unbelievably precious people... this day, rain and all, was a dream.
