I’m gonna say something: I just adore these two.
There. I said it.
Charlie & Maria are two of the goofiest, hilarious and fun-loving couples I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. I was PUMPED when they decided to hire me to document their upcoming wedding in their home state of Colorado this fall. But I was even more excited when Maria and I developed an actual friendship outside of the parameters of wedding planning.
Not to give Charlie the short end of the stick but Maria is 100% a badass. She is the creator of Your Local Girl Gang and has a passion for Cleveland and female owned businesses like no one else. She’s not even from here! So when they decided to do a session in the city I was totally on board.
Earlier in 2018 Charlie proposed to Maria at the Cleveland Museum of Art and on this day we made our way back to where it all began. The Cleveland Cultural Gardens are by far one of my favorite places to drive through in the city. So we popped a bottle (or two) of champagne, made some mimosas and trotted around.
I am a firm believer in creating engagement sessions that feel more like a date or night on the town. These two took their ideas of recreating a date night in the city and ran with it. Thank goodness because it was it was approximately 100 degrees with 100% humidity. You’d never know it because they were smiling even while adorned in sweaters!
The countdown to their big day is winding down and I am SO EXCITED! Colorado, you better be ready for us!
