Frolicked all over downtown Youngstown with the new Mr and Mrs! Emmalee and Jamison met while working at The Vindicator, so Youngstown holds all kinda special memories for these two. Who here beeps whenever they drive past a bridal party or couple? So many honks during their portraits, people just love a wedding! #hotofftheaisle #carlynkphotography #ckpweddings
Too many vintage bridal details to count!! How many can you spot? I also love that @emmyfaye is a journalist and brought along one of the amazing typewriters from her collection to include in her detail photos 😍 Did I mention she wore her grandmothers wedding dress? Sighhhh. . . . . . . . . #carlynkphotography #ckpweddings #ohioweddingphotographer #weddinginspiration #wedohio #lookslikefilm #weddinginspo #realwedding #ohiowedding #youngstownphotographer #youngstownweddingphotography #youngstownweddings #midwestweddings #lovemidwestbride #clevelandphotographer #clevelandweddingphotography #clevelandweddings #vintagewedding
Just a reminder that YOU are the only one responsible for your social media experience. These squares here can enhance your joy/creativity/inspiration, or they can leave you feeling defeated/overwhelmed/less-than. If you find yourself falling into the second category whenever you scroll, guess what? YOU CAN CHANGE THAT. The stories and images that you allow into your space are there because you CHOOSE them. A couple years ago something shifted for me in regards to social media. As a photographer, the majority of the accounts I followed were fellow photographers and all of the mainstream feature accounts - you know, the ones that leave you wondering “Do people REALLY have weddings like that?? Are people really just traveling through Europe 365 days a year? Is this real life?” Seeing these images left me feeling like the work I was doing just wasn’t “enough,” or that I wasn’t traveling enough or experiencing the world enough. But then I realized that following a million other photographers wasn’t really inspiring me or adding to my joy. It is OKAY to unfollow people that you don’t want flooding your social media. I have found that the themes and stories that make me enjoy social media in a more positive light mostly fall under these categories: . . 🌿Simple living + essential oils 💃🏼Healthy lifestyles ✈️Travel . 🏠Home decor 🐶Puppies and ridiculous memes 💁🏼♀️My real life friends . . So, consider this permission to invite the accounts and themes into your feed that make you smile or inspire you, and eliminate the ones that don’t! And if you have cute puppies or baby goats, send them my way.

Kristen and Alex know how to celebrate a wedding! They had @missionbbq for dinner, pontoon rides on the river, a photo booth (see my previous post), and night time ice cream brought in for their guests. We snuck out from all the fun to catch the last bits of sunset over the fields, and it was just the best day ever. #carlynkphotography #ckpweddings
There was a photo booth at today’s wedding that created boomerang gifs for guests and @allisonewingphotography and I spent way too much time embarrassing ourselves with how much fun it was 😂 we are also convinced that no one watching us would ever hire us again. At least we know how to have fun?! Invite us to your wedding and you better believe we will partake in all the fun! WITH our cameras! #ckpweddings
