Radiant...the word for today's bride

Today I was honored to photograph the wedding of Maria and Christian. As an Air Force veteran I was especially excited because both the bride and groom are currently serving our country as officers in the USAF! Maria or Aria as she is called by her family and friends was glowing from the moment I arrived at her parents home. I am sure she is still glowing as I type this. We lucked out with a gorgeous day. It was a bit chilly but my couple never complained during the entire outdoor portion of our pictures. The ceremony was at St. Margaret of York with the reception held at the Marriott Northeast. The ceremony was beautiful and they didn't miss a detail at the reception. So many elements made this a perfect day for a perfectly radiant bride and groom. Here are a few from today's couple.

Introducing Little Miss Kate.

When my BFF has a baby, my gift to her is newborn portraits. Kate is baby number 4 and I can honestly say she as gorgeous as the other 3 were. Here she is at about 2 weeks old. I just love squishy babies! Especially when they are as sweet as this one!

Sweet Sixteen

Looking for a fun and unique party idea? Why not have a studio portrait party. That is what Savannah's mom did for her daughter's 16th birthday. Michael Sparto did the hair and makeup nd then we had a fun model style photoshoot. Having a bachelorette party? Why not start your evening at Chapelo Photography for a fun start to your night and then after the shoot head out for a night on the town. Give your groom a sexy little keepsake photo after the party ;)

The idea are endless and we are ready to help you plan!

Aynsley and Tom and their perfect day.

Yesterday was gorgeous, wasn't it? What better way to spend it than capturing the wedding of two wonderful people. Aynsley and Tom have been clients of mine in the past. I have photographed their gorgeous daughter Ella a few times already and so I was thrilled to have the honor of capturing their wedding day. The ceremony was at Knox Presbyterian Church in Hyde Park with the reception at the Contemporary Arts Center. We had everything from perfect fall color to guest appearance from Elvis to make this day unforgettable! Here are a few from their day.

If rain on your wedding day is good luck......

So yesterday while you all were on watching reruns of America's Got Talent and The Biggest Loser I had the honor of photographing the wedding of Kyle and Amanda. What a wild day to say the least. We have all heard the saying that rain is good luck on your wedding day, so what does a Tornado warning mean? Yes I am serious, just as we were ready to head out to the Buckeye Stadium to take photographs on the field (Kyle and Amanda are both Alumni) The tornado sirens were going off and the weather turned bad. But with a determined couple we pressed on anyway...I loved that about them! Determined not to miss her shot Amanda went full speed in the rain in her gown onto the field. We were given a very nice bonus when Archie Griffin (I had to look at my notes to get the name right...I do not know ANYTHING about the buckeyes or football) anyway, he came onto the field and took a quick shot with our bridal party. After playing in the rain it was time to go back and get married...the wedding and reception were both held at BoMA. It is an AWESOME spot for an event. What a wondeful way to spend a is a little peek of my new favorite couple.

She is FAST on those heels.
Can you see the rain?

A son is NEVER too old for a kiss from his Momma.

The shot with Archie.

Just so you all know how windy it was. :)

I had to show you all the double rainbow we got after the storm left. This was taken through the window of the party bus. THAT is good luck for sure!
