I originally met Merle about eight or nine years ago when he was roommates with a good friend of ours named Jeremy. We used to ride motorcycles around Atwood Lake and Holmes County and I specifically remember sitting with him on Jeremy’s porch after a ride one day talking about this whole photography thing that Genevieve and I were starting to get into at the time. He listened with great interest and seemed genuinely excited for us, which would come as no surprise to anyone who knows Merle. As fate would have it, here we are seven years later photographing him and his lovely wife Heidi on their wedding day!
The ceremony and reception took place at the Carlisle Inn in Sugarcreek, Ohio, right in the heart of Amish Country. As anyone in Ohio knows, the weather can be a little dicey in March but Merle and Heidi were total troopers and followed us around downtown Sugarcreek and into a Farmer’s field so that we could make the images we had in mind for them. We think it was totally worth the effort, and we’re pretty confident they’ll feel the same. 🙂
Congratulations, Merle and Heidi, we are so happy you guys found each other and we wish you the very best. Enjoy that cruise!
