We recently had a wedding timeline that was perfectly timed out and planned as usual.

There is so much good inspiration available, but sometimes it seems like we either hope  we’ll get those soft and romantic images or believe we couldn’t ever have those types of images.

I’ve been to Edgewater park for Cleveland engagement sessions many times before, but never have I ever been there at sunrise. Mostly for two reasons: 1.
