Ross & Lindsey || San Francisco Engagement

San Francisco Engagement Session

Oh these two. Let me tell you about these two. When Lindsey, Ross and I had met about their wedding around a year or so ago, I had causally mentioned how we love to travel…especially to shoot in new locations. Sure, I knew the wedding would be in Columbus and that they grew up in Ross County…but I also knew that they now live in San Francisco…you know, one of those bucket list cities for me. I always love photographing couples (or families or seniors) in areas that mean something to them. Not only is it a great time to really capture that time of your life, but the photos might mean that much more if you can shoot in areas that you often go, or love or have memories from.

You can imagine how excited I was when we started to seriously talk about Justin and I flying out to photograph them where they live. We planned to make it a couple day event…that way we could be shooting in the best light, but also hit several locations too…I mean, it’s not every weekend you have a photographer following you around, you better make the most of it! Not only did they take us to the most spectacular areas to photograph, but we really had the best time! Saw amazing spots, ate amazing food and spent the whole weekend with an amazing couple. We honestly still talk about it often and how excited we are to head back one day.

Ross and Lindsey, thank you for everything…especially for making us fall in love with San Francisco…how’s about an anniversary shoot?! ;)

These two get married TOMORROW, so today seemed like the perfect day to share our time in California!

We started the evening we flew in (after an incredible tour of Alcatraz) and headed downtown to City Hall! They were closing in 10 mins…so we had the place to ourselves :) Our other shoot locations included the Presidio (one of my new favorite places of all time), a look out spot for the Golden Gate Bridge, their too cute home, Crissy Field, the Palace of Fine Arts & Baker Beach. It was an epic weekend and writing up this post has me looking at flights. I hope you enjoy the pictures even a 1/3 as much as I enjoyed this trip!

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!

Cydney & Robbie – ENGAGED!

Oh sweet Cydney! I met this girl when she was around 13 years old, or so…maybe even younger. Her dad was transferred to my church as our new pastor and we fell in love with the Campbell family immediately. They were in my life for a lot of big changes and I’ll forever consider them close…even if we don’t live near each other. From college years, to moving home & new jobs and married life (her Dad married us!)…the Campbell’s were there! Love them all so much. I have photographed both girls for their senior photos, Caitlin‘s wedding…and now we are at Cyndey’s engagement. How does time go so fast?

Cyd has found the love of her life and I couldn’t be happier for her! Robbie complements her so well and you can see the love between them. Robbie, I know I don’t know you well…but I already consider you family (cause the Campbells are to me). You & Clayton are the perfect additions to their family and it makes my heart happy.

Eric & Emily | Columbus Ohio Engagement Photography

I love this couple! I photographed Emily’s sister’s wedding a few years ago, so when she contacted me about photographing her wedding,I was over the moon. They have one of the cutest stories ever (I’ll save that for the wedding post), and are so completely sweet together. We met up in Dublin where so much of their story takes place. Here’s a little look at our time together.

*photographers, this image is SOC, just sharpened for web…gotta love that!

Jordan & Katie — the cutest Air Force couple you ever will see

There is really very little point even trying to describe how much I loved this session…so I wont bother trying…I think you’ll get it when you see the photos. Basically – a model couple, perfect light, autumn…you get the idea. It was a pretty great shoot :)

Katie & Jordan are both in the Air Force and we actually did their engagement pictures 2 days before their wedding! I’m so thankful for their service to our country and for choosing me as their photographer! Such an honor. Take a look through a few of my favorites!!
