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!

Tiffany & Ryan – Winter Wedding

Just a couple of weeks ago, I met up with the ever adorable Tiffany & Ryan for a 1 year anniversary shoot. I love the images so, so much, but before I share those…I thought I’d share their actual wedding. They were married last January (2014) on the most gorgeous winter day. I love winter weddings so much, so you can imagine how excited I was when she first contacted me about her January date. She looked flawless in her dress and every detail was thoughtfully planned out. Here’s a small look at their perfect wedding day! winter wedding photography winter wedding photography winter wedding photography winter wedding photography winter wedding photography

Hello there, 2015…let’s dust off the ole’ blog, shall we?

How’s that for a post title? I have lots of goals this year, both personal & business…but all of them settle on one word. My word of the year: intention.  This year I am striving for intention in everything.  A small part of that starts here, on this blog I started so many years ago.  For a handful of years I was a pretty decent blogger…the past 3 years or so…well, let’s not travel down that road. There are so many reasons for this…a big one, well, my daughter is 3 years old this month ;) Bigger, I stopped reading blogs…and even now, I only read a handful (I know, I know).  For me, blogs kind of slowed down in this industry and I let that change how I was operating as well.  That being said, this is the best way I know to share my work with you all…oh, also, I miss it!  I miss showing off my amazing seniors, beautiful weddings and sweet, sweet families I have the honor of meeting and photographing.  So there you have it, I won’t promise anything consistent, however, I will try. Not only sessions and weddings and events from this past *amazing* year, but hopefully I’ll share some of my favorites from the past years…so many good ones, just sitting on my hard drives, I mean, I want you all to see them!

Let’s start with Brady & Jessica…because I am in Ohio, and it’s cold here…and their wedding was in South Carolina this fall…and well, do I need anymore reasons than that? Didn’t think so.

I was absolutely honored that they asked me to come along…it’s hard to beat destination weddings in my book, so any time we get asked, we pretty much jump at the chance!  Brady & Jessica were married on Folly Beach, South Carolina and we hopped over to Charleston & Angel Oak for photographs. We couldn’t have had a better day for a beach wedding…but coming from southern Ohio…it doesn’t take much for a beach wedding to be basically perfect ;) Here’s just a handful from their day.

Gosh, that felt good. It’s nice to be back friends :)

Aaron & Jackie – The Wedding!!

In September, one of the sweetest couples I’ve ever met were married…and I was honored to be their photographer.

When I first met Jackie, her excitement for her wedding was so contagious. I could tell she had her day planned out for years…maybe since she was a little girl. Anyone would get excited to hear her talk about her ideas. The day was just perfect…of course! Here’s a little look into their special day.        chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography

Always one of my favorite moments of the day! chillicothe ohio wedding photography  chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photographychillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography

Jackie & Aaron didn’t want to see each other before the wedding…but they also didn’t want to break up the flow of the ceremony into the reception…so solution…after the reception! It was so perfect. They had planned on a short reception & it was early enough in the day that we were able to do their portraits together after everything was over. There was no stress & the light was perfect…I was a happy photographer!chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography  chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photography chillicothe ohio wedding photographychillicothe ohio wedding photography
