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 :)

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

Tayler & Andrew – The Wedding! | Southern Ohio Photography

It’s been far too long since I shared a wedding…not only that…the last wedding I shared was one that I photographed in 2010!  I mean, photographers evolve, even if it’s a little…and I haven’t shown any of my wedding work in 2 years! Wow! I decided to put an end to that. I don’t know if I will reach back and blog every wedding we have photographed since I last blogged, but I promise I will be showing some of them.

First up, Tayler & Andrew. I knew from the moment we met at their engagement session that they were going to have one amazing wedding…and guess what? I was right :) Tayler knew the exact style she wanted for her wedding, and she pulled it off – perfectly!  The weather couldn’t have been better, the details were gorgeous…and well, you’ll see the couple ;) I was so honored to be there and I was thrilled when Tayler emailed after she saw the pictures to say that she couldn’t wait for their next event to photograph. Lifetime clients…there’s nothing better :)

Here’s a little look into their beautiful day! Enjoy!
