If there is one thing that is the most confusing and constantly changes for our brides while planning their wedding, it’s where they plan on getting ready! There are SO many things to think about with getting ready, it’s so … Continue reading →
It was a SUPER FREEZING cold day when we went to the Toledo Zoo to meet Josh & Kelsey for their awesome engagement pictures. Seriously…these two just know what’s up. He proposed at the zoo last year at The Lights … Continue reading →
Since Connor was away on orders, we never got a chance to get together with these two for their engagement session (OR a first screening of Star Wars! 😉 ), but we did have a chance to connect with Meredith. … Continue reading →
Servicemen and women have always been a group of people that are very near and dear to our heart. Several family members, friends, and loved ones of ours have sacrificed their time and lifestyle in order to serve our country. … Continue reading →
The dynamic between Jason & Sarah is so interesting to see. She’s light and bubbly. He’s stoic and grounded. She’s artsy. He’s practical. But there is a real truth to the phrase “opposites attract.” And we think it’s awesome. Because they balance one another out perfectly. 🙂
They both have one thing in common though. They love one another. ❤
We had so much fun on this 70 degree day in November. Yes. You read that right. 70 DEGREES. We like to think the weather warmed up just for them. Congrats you two!
Ryan & Melissa are from a special branch of the #ksbride family. Ok, you’re all special. 😉 But when brides know other brides, it brings about an energy and expectation from us! These two were part of the “family reunion” picture we posted on our instagram a month or so ago. Because that’s exactly what it feels like when we get together with a bunch of our couples at once! So you know…rsvp to that Christmas party, people. 😉
We got to Maumee Bay State Park that afternoon. We’ve shot there several times before, but Ryan & Melissa showed us some spots that we’ve never seen before! And seriously. We’re renting that cabin soon. :p
Congratulations you two! We had SUCH a great time with you and can’t wait until your wedding in the summer!
We’re not sure we’ve ever been more excited for dreary weather in our lives. Normally we kick our feet in the dirt a little bit if the sun isn’t shining, it’s getting dark in the middle of the day, and there’s a chance of drizzles while we’re supposed to be doing wedding portraits. However, Phil & Monika’s wedding was no ordinary wedding. 😉
With it being Halloween, we were welcoming the dark skies with open arms. Is it within our normal “style” of shooting? Not necessarily, but it sure did fit the theme of this elegant masquerade themed wedding on All Hallow’s Eve. A poorly lit chapel to get the bride dressed in? Normally we’d be searching for a place with many more windows and brighter walls. But today it was perfect. Orange and black striped tights? Yes please. A skull mask and Deadpool shoes? More. We want more. Because today is a special day. It’s Phil & Monika’s anniversary of their first date. It’s their wedding day.
And we couldn’t have thought of a better way to celebrate! Seriously. Everything was amazing! The understated theme, all the masks, the dress colors, the gloves, the tails…yes. THE TAILS.
Congratulations Phil & Monika! We hope you’re having an amazing time on your honeymoon and we can’t wait to show you the rest of the pictures!
Us becoming Cole & Stephanie’s wedding photographers was simply meant to be. Let’s start with the fact that there is a name shared here. :p And their last name? Starts with a “K”. She is a nurse. Stephanie went to nursing school. If she’d do anything else, she’d be a photographer. Um. We ARE photographers. We’ll even almost have the same anniversary! And we just kept running into each other everywhere we went. It’s like the universe was trying to put us together.
Hey. Thanks universe.
Because these two are so much fun! They love to laugh, they are so genuine, are full of such amazing ideas, and Cole even walked a million stares even though that day was leg day. LEG DAY, people!
We seriously can’t wait to see you guys again, and of course, be there for your gorgeous wedding! Let’s go get some Tackle Box together real soon. 😉
We don’t know about you guys, but we find Blaine & Ali to be EXTREMELY easy to talk to. So much so, that we probably talked their ears off the entire time we were together. :p They’re just so laid back and welcoming…we couldn’t help ourselves! They are incredibly genuine people, and so wonderfully warm. We are so happy we get to be their wedding photographers because usually amazing people surround themselves with equally amazing people. And that just makes for a wedding day that ends up to be, well…amazing. 🙂
The weather held up for us, and Blaine and Ali both had some really cool ideas. It was so much fun to collaborate with these two and get some genuinely loving and silly images. Congratulations Blaine & Ali! We hope you enjoy this preview and can’t wait to hand over the rest!
Did you know that Stephanie used to serve tables and bartend at Applebee’s before we were even Kent & Stephanie? And we don’t just mean “Kent & Stephanie Photography,” she worked there before we were even together! In fact, one day, Kent came in and waited about an hour just to sit in her section. That should have been clue #1. 😉
But we digress. When Stephanie worked at Applebee’s her favorite hostess was this adorable 16 year old named Samantha Burdette. She was always so sweet, great at her job, and constantly talked about a boy named Daniel.
Fast forward 7 years, we get a call from Sam saying that she’s planning her wedding. What!??! And she wants us to photograph it. WHAT?!!? Sometimes life has a fantastic way of keeping people in your life, or bringing people together. We can’t begin to describe what an honor it was to photograph this wedding of these two special people who have been 11 years in the making!
The environment was so genuine and relaxed when we got there. It wasn’t until the ceremony started that one by one, everyone started to lose it. And it just kept happening throughout the day. Every time we turned around, someone was hugging one of these two and shedding a few tears. That is what overwhelming joy is, folks. ❤ And we can’t think of any two people who are more full and more deserving of so much happiness and love. This day was truly a special one.
Congratulations Daniel & Sam! We are so excited to share this preview with you, and we can’t wait to show you the rest!
When we got to Toledo Botanical Gardens, Mike & Emily were already there waiting for us. And it felt awesome to reconnect with them! We probably spent the first 5 minutes or so just catching up and chatting like old friends. It made taking pictures feel so natural and so easy because at that point, we were literally just hanging out and having fun!
These two are so joyful and so full of love and energy, they made our job easy. All we had to do was relax and sit back and let the magic happen right in front of us. Congratulations Mike & Emily…we can’t wait to show you the rest of the pictures and of course, for your wedding day!
When you wish upon a star,
Bryant & Becca, here you are!
It was such an honor
Watching your dreams come true!
Ok. Backstory. 😉
Bryant & Becca got engaged. At Disney World. In front of Cinderella’s castle! Why? Um, because it’s awesome. Also, because Becca might be the biggest Disney fan you’ve ever met! It took us a minute to realize as we looked around our table at the wedding reception…but the hand mirror? The jar with the rose under it? The books? The candelabra??? We were totally sitting at the “Beauty and the Beast” table! So naturally we had to go exploring, but we also saw “Alice in Wonderland,” “Snow White,” and too many to recall. It was so, well…magical!
We had so much fun with Bryant & Becca this past Saturday. Even though it was a brisk 45 degrees out, they braved the cold with us and had smiles on their faces the entire time. Bryant even surprised us…we’re pretty sure we ALMOST saw a tear in his eye when he saw Becca coming down the aisle. 😉
Congratulations you two! We are so excited to show you this little preview, and we can’t wait to show you the rest! Until then, enjoy your happily ever after. 😉
If we could describe Jake & Hannah in one word, it would be this: HILARIOUS.
We honestly don’t remember the last time we laughed so much at a session! Now, if you’ve worked with us, then you know for a fact that we always act crazy, do little dances, and pretty much whatever it takes to get some real emotion out of you. But with these two? It didn’t take much! They radiated joy no matter what we were doing or where we were. From skipping around and singing songs from “Into the Woods,” to quoting Ricky Bobby, to complaining about how long men take to change…it was just nonstop.
If things keep going like this, we’re going to have sore ribs on their wedding day. :p
Congratulations Jake & Hannah! We hope you enjoy this little preview, and we can’t wait to show you the rest!
We’re not even sure where to start with these two. ❤
Or professional relationship began with Jason about four years ago when we met him at a wedding. It was pretty much love at first sight for us…he is SUCH an incredible DJ! Seriously…if you need a wedding DJ, call this guy. He’s the owner of Book That DJ, and they are really top notch.
Anyway…we digress. :p
As we said, our professional relationship started with him four years ago. And it didn’t take long for a real friendship to blossom. He introduced us to his (at the time) girlfriend Laura two years ago when he was voted 2013’s Best DJ. Yeah. He’s that good. 😉 We were instantly taken with both of them together. We’re not entirely sure there are two people on this earth who were meant for each other more than Jason & Laura. They balance one another out so perfectly, but at the same time, they feed off of one another’s energy. They look at each other with such intensity, but at the same time so much comfort. Jason is the peanut butter to Laura’s jelly. She is the macaroni to his cheese. And we could just eat them both up. ❤
We couldn’t have asked for a better fall day this past Saturday. The weather was absolutely perfect! Sunny and beautiful, warm and crisp all at the same time. And the decor? Holy moly…don’t even get us started. In fact, it’s probably better that we just show you. 😉
As Jason so eloquently put, it was the “best wedding of the ever!”
We hope you two are having a TON of fun on your honeymoon! We can’t wait to have you over to show you the rest of the images once they’re all done…and once again…THANK YOU for inviting us to play such a big part in your wedding day!
It was a wet, rainy day when we arrived at Nazareth this past Saturday for Scott & Kate’s wedding. We were nervous that the weather was also going to put a damper on their moods. This was 100% not the case. 🙂 We LOVE it when we have couples who are adventurous or who do whatever it takes to get “the shot”! Even though it was FREEZING, and raining almost all day, these two were more than willing to go outside and play in the rain with us! And their bridal party? What a bunch of troopers!
Not only did Scott & Kate surround themselves with amazing people to stand next to them on their wedding day, but their families are wonderful as well. So much emotion and so many grateful hearts! And friends, those are our favorites. 🙂
Congrats again Scott & Kate! We are so happy we got to be a part of your wedding day, and can’t wait to show you all the pictures!
