So on a lovely afternoon a few weeks back, the beautiful bride Sara, a local news station producer, put together one of the the biggest productions of her life…a wedding to her handsome groom, Tim.  They chose the breath-taking backdrop of Fellows Riverside Gardens in Youngstown, Ohio for the location of their ceremony and reception, and they couldn’t have gotten a more gorgeous day.  Here are some of my favorite shots as I tag-teamed with fellow photographer, Ryan Muesel, at Tim and Sara’s news-worthy wedding.

Sara getting buttoned into her stunning gown

I had a fleeting moment where I wondered if Sara would realize these went missing... loved.these.shoes!

Sara with her gorgeous gals

The ring bearer and the flower girl were the cutest things ever!

I think the glistening in Tim's eyes speaks nothing but full fledge love for Sara

With this ring...

The new Mr. & Mrs. Boesel!

The bridal party

I think Tim spied himself a good catch!

loved her bouquet!

Have you seen a more handsome couple?! Beautiful!

Time to get the party started!

Showing us how it's done!

Starting the night off with some Village People...

Adding a little indian funk to the jam...

The man behind the music, DJ Jim Loboy

I think the garter and bouquet toss recipients really hit it off...haha. 🙂

Am I wanted on the dance floor?? 🙂

Looks like Tim is "poppin' his collar"

 And one last photo of the gorgeous couple:

Sealed with a Kiss!

Poor Paul is definitely out numbered these days!  With the recent birth of his beautiful baby girl Rylee, it’s 3 to 1 in favor of girls in their household these days.  But I don’t think he minds one bit.  He’s got 3 absolutely stunning gals, and I don’t think he could be more smitten.  Here are some of my favorites from my visit with Kristy, Paul, Morgan, and their newest member to the family, Rylee.  (Lucky guy!)

Their expressions in this photo are priceless!


Okay, maybe we like each other. 😉


Such a beautiful family!


Waiting for "Unkie Corey" to pick up the phone...


Puppy Love!


What a sweetheart!




I think they are smitten with their newest edition!

 Thank you, Kristy and Paul, for continuing to welcome me into your home to share these special moments with you and your girls!

“I can’t believe I’m a mother of two now.”  This is what Kate expressed with me while we were prepping little baby Ryan for his photographic debut the other weekend.  Isn’t it amazing how these precious pathways in life just sort of sneak up on you?  First you are dreaming about what you want to be when you grow up, then you are thinking about what college to go to, who you will marry, and then before you know it, you have a wonderful spouse, a career, and a beautiful family.  How does time go so fast?!  Thankfully, that’s where I step in, taking photographs to capture and freeze these wonderful moments in time.  Giving you a photograph that you can always look back on those precious instants in time.  Here are a few of my favorites from our session:

Big brother Jason showed me his fast motorcycle guy


siblings and friends forever...


look at thoese eyes! (and fun hair too!)


Mom and dad plus their new edition to the family


Grandma flew in all the way from Russia to see her grandchildren!


This shot made my heart melt!

If you haven’t seen my teaser on FB already (hello??  If you aren’t you a fan yet, why not?), here’s a little sneak peek of a super hot couple’s boudoir session I did a few weeks ago.  If you want to keep things steamy in your relationship, this is definitely the way to go! 

If only my arse was half as hot as hers....sigh.

Wahoo!!! 🙂

Be sure to check news stands on June 20th for the July 2010 issue of Oxygen Magazine and you will find between the pages (page 134 to be exact!) one of my favorite fitness gals, Sara Bedrossian, in their “Future of Fitness” section.  Sara is soooo dedicated to keeping fit and helping others get/stay fit, it makes me so giddy to see her in this “bible” of women’s fitness magazine.

In case you need help knowing what to look for in the magazine aisle:

This cover will some day soon have Miss Sara B gracing it!


There she is! Of course they picked the best girl (and photo!) to go first!

Congrats girlie!  Can’t wait until the day I’m saying, “Ohmygawd, what fitness magazine has she NOT been in?!” Haha.

Yes, I know…

You are all waiting forEVER for an England post.  🙂  So here it is!  Since I took a TON of photos, I decided to break it into parts, so here is Part I for you.  Enjoy!

After a long night of flying (way far north over Greenland and Iceland to avoid the ashes from Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokul volcano), I arrived (later than anticipated) into Heathrow on the morning of my 30th birthday.  Wahoo!  I was SO excited to finally be over the great big pond known as the Atlantic, that I let the fact that my suitcase came off the conveyor belt unzipped 12 inches and everything inside in a dissarray fall to the way side.  (Only later did I realize stuff had been stolen.  Let this be a lesson learned kids, keep any valuables in your carry-on!)  I met up with my long-time friend (pen-pal from childhood…yeah, we actually WROTE letters instead of emailed.  Wierd, I know) and our other friend at Heathrow arrivals and we were off to our London hotel in Chelsea. 

Here she comes! My first experience on the London Underground.

"Please Mind the Gap"

Sloan Square - Where we got off to get to our hotel in Chelsea

 Around Sloan Square were stores like Tiffany & Co. and Peter Jones Department store and lots of windows full of beautiful babbles (that we admired from a far). 

The beauty that is Chelsea!

Lil and Lindsey outside our Hotel

 While our hotel was absolutely stunning and very posh, with a great location, the service was sub par.  If you want the inside scoop on this place, feel free to send me a message.  Sadly, I wouldn’t recommend it.

After getting ourselves situated at the hotel, we headed downtown to Covent Gardens to do a little shopping and eating.

Lots of little touristy shops and market places here

 The street performers here at Covent Gardens were highly entertaining.

Yes, he is painted silver!

Silver dude's gold counter act. 🙂

 We were all famished and finally ate lunch here at a lovely Italian Restaurant called Pasta Brown.  Can I say BEST LASAGNA and BANOFFEE PIE EVER?!



Picadilly Circus!

A sneak photo of the girls photographing the Eros monument at Picadilly!

Of course a photo in the red phone booth!

 (I don’t recommend attempting this photo though…I’m pretty sure about 3248239043 bums have pissed in that booth…it smelled so horrid! haha)

So that’s a few photos from day one to hold you over for a bit.  More will come, I promise! 😉
