Jessica – Senior ’10! | Mansfield Ohio Senior Photography

I am heading out the door, but wanted to pop on and share a few of my favorites from my session with Jessica!  A couple weeks ago, Justin & I headed up to Mansfield to take Jessica’s senior pictures.  I LOVE shooting in Mansfield, there are so many great locations.  Jessica is so sweet, and style? My word, she has style! I just loved the outfits she had chosen!

Jessica, thanks for choosing me! I had a great time on your shoot!  So excited for you, I know you will LOVE IWU!!  Oh, and I still wanna hear you sing!

Yep. We shot on a carousel!

I am leaving again. I know, it’s getting out of hand ;)

I am heading down to Bardstown, Kentucky to photograph some too cute families!!  I’ll be back in the office by Friday, so please hang tight if you don’t hear from me by then!

Have a great week!!

Sam & Beth | Columbus Ohio Engagement Photography

You’ve heard me say it before, and I am going to say it again.  One of my favorite parts of my job (could be the favorite) is that so often my clients become my friends.  It’s as if God put me in this career so that I would meet particular people…because otherwise, how would our paths cross.  Sam & Beth are no exception.  Last year we all sat down to dinner to meet.  Beth was already set on me photographing her wedding, so the actual meeting was more of a dinner.  Before our drinks had even come, we clicked.  I can’t really explain it, but I knew we were meant to be friends.  Beth & I chatted about all things vintage (which is what their wedding will be like!) and Sam & Justin talked about farming.  Justin & Beth talked about musicals and books and Sam and I talked about TV ;)  Everything just clicked.

I couldn’t wait for the engagement shoot just so we would have the chance to hang out again.  We had such a wonderful time at her parents farm (which I am planning on moving in…seriously, it’s so great).  I couldn’t narrow it down a lot, but I tried, so here are a bunch of my favorites.

Love this image Justin caught…so perfect!

Beth, you are so beautiful.

You know I flipped out a little when I saw this old truck…

The image on the left was Sam’s idea! Oh, and the right…this is their driveway, and no, I am not kidding.

You two make me happy.

Because the last “action shot” (and I say that loosely, since I was laying on the ground) was such a big hit…here are a couple more. Sorry for posting this one Justin…it’s all I had :)

And no, I have no idea what I’m standing in.

Beth, I can’t wait for our get-together this Saturday!

*we are going to the Trading Post in Bainbridge (one of my favorite places), and then to Adena’s musical production of Seussical! *if you are looking for something to do this weekend…Seussical the Musical!  I’ll be there every night!  And then I get my husband back ;)

Sophie in the Spring…

I have many, many sessions to post before I get to this one.  However, it’s such a pretty springy day that I just had to share.

Have a beautiful day.

Angela & Jerry – The Wedding! | Columbus Ohio Wedding Photography

I couldn’t think of a better way to start our 2010 wedding season then photographing a beautiful wedding in good ole’ Columbus.  Angela & Jerry got married January 16th and it was another stunning winter wedding (I’m quickly becoming a fan of those).  Not only were the locations amazing, but they allowed for plenty of time between the ceremony & the reception for portraits.  If you aren’t planning on doing photos before, this is a must if you want great photos of the two of you and all your loved ones!

Angela had found me online and during our initial meeting we discovered how small a world we live in.  Her family actually lived in Chillicothe at one time and she went to school with my brother-in-law Matt! I just love those unexpected connections.

Here is a little look into their January wedding…

The church was so beautiful!

Crazy good-looking couples make my job waay too easy ;)

We stopped by The Florentine before the reception.  This is were Angela & Jerry had their first date!

*love these*

Michael Sutherland was soo great! Amazing voice!

The Loft at Smith Bros is so beautiful! I’ve photographed at their other area – The Venue, but this was my first time at The Loft.  The setup is fantastic, dinner is served upstairs and dancing is down.  Just so people don’t feel like they aren’t part of the events, there is a big opening looking down to the dance floor.  That way people could stay upstairs for conversations, or head downstairs for dancing & drinks and everyone still knows what is going on.

Thank you Justin for this photo:

Angela’s dad is so sweet, I just loved this photo of him. Is he having a good time or what? :)
