If you’re new to our blog, hello! We’re Josh & Danielle, a husband and wife wedding photography team based in Columbiana, Ohio. Most of the weddings we photograph are in the Youngstown, Ohio area, but we also love to travel to Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Columbus, West Virginia, and the beach to photograph weddings! We have a 3 year old daughter (turning 4 in February) and a 1 year old son (turning 2 in February) who light up our world & provide us with daily laughs. They are so beautiful and we’re not biased at all. We also have two incredibly stinky and chubby pugs named Norris & Punky.
