Trent & Katie | two years married

There’s a type of shoot that isn’t all that common but should be. Well, should be in the sense that I LOVE to photograph it ;) An anniversary shoot! Of course, the wedding and engagement shoots are an obvious thing to document…but 1, 2, 3 years in…I mean, how sweet?! You don’t have to have kids to document who you are as a family. I wish Justin and I had more photos from the time “before kids.”

Trent emailed me a while back and asked if I’d be interested in heading to their town to photograph a session as a gift to Katie for their anniversary.  Not only did he want that to be her gift to her, he specifically wanted to document them in their home and current season of life…where they like to go and the area where they live now. If you know me…you’d know I’d be all over that! I love when couples want to personalize shoots to really have a record of how life is this moment in their lives.

Of course, we lucked out with it being as hot as possible ;) You all know how much I love heat…but they totally rocked it regardless. I swear my clients have super powers…I can assure you, I don’t resemble anything that would be “camera ready” during those hot shoots! It blows my mind every warm session how girls still have perfect hair and makeup by the end, haha!!

Justin and I headed to Covington, Kentucky (super cute town across the river from Cincinnati) for the session…here’s a little look at…well, some of it. You all know I have no control, so there is so much more ;)

A quick note on this one…this building is scheduled to be demolished…I’m so happy they wanted to include it.  I mean, what an amazing piece of art! Love that they have this to remember such a neat part of downtown before it’s gone.

I hope that made everyone want to schedule 1, 4, 7…”whatever” year anniversary shoot…and you know who to call ;)

Guys, it’s just a really fantastic present. I promise.

 

2016 Senior Team!!

025

What better time than July to finally post my 2016 Senior Team?! Haha!! So, as mentioned in the previous blog post…things got a little out of hand, so this is being reveled a bit later than planned…but even so, I am still so excited to share it! This was such a fun and awesome group we had and I hope they all love the photos as much as I do! Not only that, I hope it takes them all back to remember the fun day we had. I won’t lie…after watching Justin finish up the video, I was really kicking myself on my decision to go another route…only because it reminded me of how much fun it was!! However, I stand by it all for now, but maybe I’ll come up with something new and fun and different to have the best of both worlds!

The 2016 Senior Team members are:

Justice Clark, Elle Lamb, Cheyenne Leeth, Anthony McFadden, Maris Corzine, Nathaniel Lamb, Savannah Leeth, Madisyn Myers & Xena Stearos

I think everyone’s waited long enough…

Katie & Steve || Via Vecchia Winery

I think it’s about time that I start sharing all of these beautiful weddings we have the honor of documenting!! I have some back-logged to go back and share, but I thought I’d start with the “season” this year, rather than showing you a nice winter wedding on this hot July day ;)

Katie & Steve were married this May in Columbus, and the entire day was classic & beautiful. We started with a first look on the rooftop in the middle of the city and then managed to sneak into The Ohio State University stadium for a few photos…which was perfect, since Katie is a former OSU cheerleader! Although the threat of rain moved the ceremony indoors, it didn’t disrupt our photos at all and I think the ceremony was absolutely stunning inside! Both the wedding and reception took place at Via Vecchia Winery, which we love…the style, ambience, location & people! We’ve had a handful of weddings there and really go above and beyond! Oh, and that band…gotta be one of my favorites of all time…they knew how to party and I would recommend them to anyone searching for a great band!!

Here’s a look at their perfect day!! wedding Renaissance hotel columbus ohio

Emily & Ben are getting married … tomorrow!!

That’s right, you guys! Tomorrow!! I’m so excited to not only see these two tie the knot, but to document it as well. I’ve known Emily for quite a while now…since she starred as the Cat in the Hat in Suessical the Musical her sophomore year. It was my husband’s first show after taking over the theater department at Adena High School, and she nailed her part. I watched her perform the rest of her high school career and I was so excited for her when I had heard she had found Ben…I am pretty sure everyone knew right away, these two were made for each other. They are absolutely perfect together, and tomorrow is going to be the sweetest celebration of that!

As you will see, we didn’t photograph these last week, but in October…however, I thought, what better time to blog them than tonight, on the eve of their wedding day! What a perfect day it’s going to be!
