Katie & Daniel | Married

Magenta, Blush, & Copper Wedding | Golf Club at Yankee Trace

I first met Katie last year when she was a bridesmaid in Meredith and Zach's wedding, and I was so excited when she reached out to me about photographing her own wedding! Meredith and Zach's bridal party was a sweet and super fun group, so I had no doubt that my experience with Katie and Daniel would be similar. What I didn't fully realize at the time was how truly special this couple really is, and how their love for each other and their family and friends runs so deeply through them. Their wedding day was one I will never forget.

Rekha + Alex | Engaged

Fall Engagement Session at The Ohio State University

Basically five seconds after Rekha sat down across the table from Josh and me at Starbucks, I knew I wanted to be a part of her wedding day. She is sweet, bubbly, and down to earth, and Alex is a lucky guy to be marrying her next year! Rekha teaches kindergarten and Alex is currently in med school, but soon their long distance will be over and they'll be able to call themselves husband and wife! I first met Alex at their session, and from the moment I shook his hand I could see that he's an amazing guy and perfect for Rekha. They are so happy when they're together, and care more about one another than the details and frills of the wedding day.

Rekha and Alex met during their freshman year at Ohio State, and it was so fun to walk around campus and hear stories of the memories they've shared there. We had a beautiful fall day and the leaves were at the peak of colorfulness. Enjoy some favorites from their session!

Kendra + Shane | Engaged

Fall Engagement Session | Ohio Stadium & Whetstone Park of Roses

The first time Josh and I met Kendra and Shane, we sat in a Starbucks talking about all things weddings (and beyond), and I remember leaving that meeting so hoping that they would choose us to be a part of their wedding day! They are a super sweet couple who love to smile, love the Buckeyes, and can't wait to become husband and wife. Sure enough, they did, and then it was time for their engagement session! Kendra and Shane had just two requests-- Ohio Stadium and fall colors, and boy did we hit the jackpot! We rescheduled due to some nasty wet weather and the date we chose ended up being perfect, because the week of their session the leaves everywhere were painted in red, orange, and gold. The weather was a little chilly (okay a LOT chilly!!) but they were both troopers and we were able to get some AMAZING images! Kendra and Shane were naturals in front of the camera, and relaxed so easily into poses and smiles. Kendra has the cutest little giggle and it was so easy for them to smile, because they just enjoy being around each other. I am ridiculously excited for their wedding next summer and to share these images with you!! So without further ado, here are some of my favorites from their session :)

Lizz + Devon | Engaged

Ohio Countryside Engagement

As I drove through the countryside on my way to Lizz's parents house to meet her and Devon for their engagement session, I just had a feeling it was going to be a beautiful evening. And wouldn't you know it, I was exactly right! Lizz greeted me at the door in a flowy gold gown, and I knew it was going to be amazing. We had such a great time exploring the property surrounding her parent's home, and even included their sweet pup in a few of the images.

Amanda + Andrew | Married

Mythical Fall Wedding at Crago Farms

Without a doubt, Amanda and Andrew's wedding was the most uniquely themed wedding I've ever photographed! But before I tell you about it, let me tell you a little about Andrew and Amanda. Andrew is a huge gamer and Amanda is as crafty as they come (this girl can crochet up a storm-- she crocheted all the bouquets for her and her bridesmaids!). They are super laid back, and love nothing more than to just spend time with each other. My favorite moment of their wedding day was hearing the personal vows they had written to each other during the ceremony. As they read page after page of words describing their love and commitment they would make to one another that day, it quickly became apparent through laughter and tears that they were meant to be together, and are stronger together than they are apart.
