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

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.

Emily & Eric – The Wedding! | Columbus Ohio Wedding Photography

Since I’ve blogged 2 weddings from the entire 2013 year, I decided that to recap the year I am going to post backwards! Think of this as a gift, otherwise I’d be showing you a beach wedding while we are experiencing negative wind chills…so, you’re welcome ;)

First up is Emily & Eric! You might remember them from their engagement shoot, or even Emily from her sister’s wedding in 2011…and I just went to find a link and realized I never blogged her wedding either…I tell you, I am really bad at this blogging thing!! Anyway, I love photographing weddings where I have already gotten to know some of the members of the wedding party…it felt like a little reunion! Here’s a little peak into their day!

A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte | Wedding Photography

When I received an email from Brionne a month before her wedding with a few things she’d like make sure we photographed (the porch swing, trinkets on her bouquet, etc), there happened to be one request that jumped out at me. She said, “I really really really love the spin on Seurat’s A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. If there was any way we could do something similar, it would make my life.” I responded with, “it would make mine too.” Of course, we were being slightly hyperbolic, but still…it would rock.

So when a bride tells me something would “make her life”…you are pretty much guaranteed I will do anything I can to make it happen. And although I forgot the parasols at home, and it had poured just an hour before…we still made it happen. Thanks to a stashed umbrella in the car & the most amazing wedding party that didn’t mind sitting/laying on the ground. For that, I am grateful…and I am sure Brionne is as well.

Here’s my rendition to make it appear similar to pointillism…I am no Georges Seurat, but I think it will mean a bit more to Brionne than his version anyway.

(well, maybe not, but it’s still pretty fun ;) A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte
