I have been photographing the Dean family since Evelyns newborn session and now two years later I get to capture the joy of welcoming a baby boy into their family. Their second baby boy, because Fenway, duh. We met at Ault park in Cincinnati, Ohio and ran around with balloons. It was a super fun evening.
I met Elizabeth and Braden at Ault Park to capture maternity photos before they become a family of three. They are located in Dayton, so we decided to meet in Cincinnati for their maternity session and I will head to Dayton for their newborn session once their little one arrives. Also, can we talk about how Elizabwth proves that maternity glow is real!
Can't wait to see you guys again here soon!
I met Jill, Erik and their sweet daughter Madelyn at Ault park for a mini maternity session. They are due with baby number 2 in September. I always love documenting families just before they grow. Its so fun to see how everyone grows to fit the new member. <3
I met Ben, Erin and her sweet boy Jacob at Ault park in Cincinnati, Ohio for a combo Engagement and family session. I am photographing Ben and Erin's wedding next month and incluided in their package was an engagement session. Since we already met up at Northstar to talk details they knew me already, one of the reasons I recommend an engagement session, but it is always beneficial for me to shoot a couple before their day so on the wedding day we can fall right into sweet poses and they know the flow. Plus I reminded Erin that as moms we absolutely need to get in the frame with our kiddos. Plus Jacob is basically second shooting the wedding for me so I need to make sure we work well together :P
Erin! Make sure you send me some of those great behind the scenes! :P
I met Rosco, Miranda and her son Rory at Jacksons Florist and Garden Center in Covington Kentucky bright and early before they opened.
Miranda definitely knew that she wanted her intimate wedding, just the three of them plus a witness and officiant, to be at a garden center, but not which one when we booked her wedding. Thankfully, her local garden center that she frequents for succulents was happy to let us come in early. Thanks Jacksons Florist and Garden Center!
After their 20 minute ceremony we explored the nursery for a little bit and captured some stuning photos. Of course you cant go wrong with boys in suspenders and a in her simple black dress surrounded by colorful flowers. <3
After I definitely grabbed three new plant babies to being home and they headed out for Waffle House! My kinda morning.
Small weddings like this are my absolutely my jam! If you are ready to say I do and want to capture the moment without all of the complications definitely reach out. I will happily be that second witness. :P
I left Martin and Lauras wedding feeling like I had been invited as a friend and just brought my camera for my girl. You definitely want to check out their gorgeous wedding day in the blog below.
I met Laura and her bridal crew at Hotel Covington in northern Kentucky to capture them celebrate Laura complete with Mimosas, dresses (& a tux) that flattered everyone and a very good play list.
Forever and always swooning over first looks!
After getting ready we headed to their ceremony/reception venue The Belle Event Centre. Martin's reaction when he saw Laura for the first time was beautiful. I love my job <3
Bridal party! When you have a group this big... you're probably freaking awesome.
Can you believe that Laura's bouquet is made of wooden florals!?!?!
After cocktail hour we danced, cried, laughed, cheered and let them eat cake.
Boogie Boogie Boogie!
I met up with Gary and his partner Eli to capture their small wedding ceremony at The Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park in Cincinnati, Ohio. Their family and friends surrounded them in a semi circle while they exchanged vows and rings after 8+ years of choosing each other. Intimate ceremonies and small wedding packages like the Gary and Eli's are honestly my absolute favorite.
Gary + Eli chose to have one hour of wedding coverage. This is typically the perfect amount of time for a short ceremony and portraits of the newly weds :D
When my camera is charging you can find me playing with my little family or trying yummy new foods around the city.
I promise to tell horrible jokes and will probably be more awkward than you, but by the end of the day we will all be laughing. Which is how I get the real natural smiles that you see in my portfolio!
