Conchetta & Joe | Wedding Photography

I had the pleasure of meeting Conchetta & Joe and photographing them in their wedding attire. I love the idea of doing special portraits after the wedding day…less stress on the day of, so many location options…and frankly, it’s just fun :)

They are the sweetest couple and I loved every minute of the shoot. Here are a handful of my favorites :)


This happens to be their yard. Yep, amazing!

My favorite :)

Coats Family | Ohio Family Photography

This spring I met up with one of my favorite families to photograph Miss Jocie & celebrate her being 1 year old!! I photographed Jamie & Adam’s wedding back in 2009 and *nothing* makes me happier than being invited back to document my couples as they grow into sweet families! Here are just a few of my favorites :)

Jocie, feel free to thank me for this image in about 25 years :)

Look at those eyes!

A couple of my favorites :)

Eric & Elena – The Wedding! | Adena Mansion Wedding Photography

I recently shared Eric & Elena’s engagement session, and shortly after we photographed that, it was time for their wedding. As usual, it was a perfect day. Once again, some of the best weather we had all year. They were married at the beautiful Adena Mansion & Gardens in Chillicothe, then the reception was held at The Madison.  If you are looking for an outdoor area in Chillicothe for your wedding, give Adena a look. They have many different locations you can choose. I LOVE how Elena & Eric choose to get married under the big trees…it was absolutely beautiful!

They planned out every detail, and it sure did show. From the vibrant colors she infused in the bouquets & hanging lanterns, to the stings of paper doves hanging from the ceremony trees…everything was just stunning. Here’s a small look into their amazing wedding day…enjoy :)

Another great first glance :)

Gorgeous. Just gorgeous.

Not only did they allow lots of time before the wedding for photos, we also had a few minutes to steal downtown before they entered the reception…you know, when the light is really great!

Absolutely loved these guys. They were so great and they added the perfect mix of personality & fun to the cocktail hour.

Paige & Dan | Chillicothe Ohio Engagement Photography

Sweet, sweet Paige. I couldn’t stop smiling when I walked away from our first meeting.  She has one of those smiles that spread around…you can help but be happy around her.  We met up a few months ago and I was so excited that she brought her maid of honor…who I’ve already photographed a few times!  We all sat around and talked about the what will be the cutest hometown wedding with country charm…seriously, it’s gonna be so great!

Paige was set on 2 things for sure for her engagement photos. #1 She wanted to shoot at Adena Mansion & Gardens. #2 There’s gotta be snow :) You know I was all over both of those, especially since I hadn’t even photographed there before (we have 2 weddings there so far this year!).  Like all snow shoots, it took a bit of work to make all our schedules align.  Every time snow was coming into town, I was leaving!  We finally found a date, and frankly, it couldn’t have been a more perfect day.  The setting was amazing and I could shoot there everyday and still have new ideas…love that place!

Not only do I get to photograph Paige & Dan’s wedding, but I will also be photographing the wedding of Dan’s sister, Kim! It’s gonna be a great year :)

Paige & Dan…I can’t wait for your beautiful May wedding!!!

Sidenote: I have a folder on my computer full of photos of Justin & I shooting at sessions & weddings…some are cute, most are unflattering, but a few are pretty funny…

Here is a shot of me photographing the image above…

and yes, I left a little cold

…but I got the shot ;)
