Gentleman, take notes! Joel went all out to ask Katie to be his wife. Every moment of her day was planned ahead to be sure it was nothing short of perfection. Including a trip to the nail salon. Since he proposed on sweetest day Katie thought they were just meeting up to go on a double date, but really it was her surprise proposal.
In case you needed a reason to think that dancing while being serenaded was romantic, the back story is that they had dancing in public on their couples bucket list. After their dance family and friends surrounded them to say their congratulations and check out the bling. Just in case anyone missed the celebration Joel had me (the photographer) and a videographer their to capture every moment.
Miriam and I have been friends since 6th grade. Which means we grew up pretending our wedding with barbies and then creating powerpoints with google images and grabbing starbucks at the Kenwood Barnes & Noble while we flip through the magazines. Now it's the real deal and shes sending me her pinterest boards
Can't wait to stand next to this lady on her wedding day. When She says "I do" in this very church. ❤️
I met up with Nikki and Brandyn in Dayton, Ohio because they were traveling 3 hours to meet with me for their engagement session. We met at Hills & Dales MetroPark and it was the perfect fall setting. Dayton is a little way out of my typical radius, but adventuring new areas with fun clients is on my top ten favorite things to do list - so it was a fun Friday night for me.
Nikki and Brandyn are high school sweethearts and you can tell they are best friends. Our session was filled with laughter and you can definitely feel that joy in their engagement pictures.
I always love when I get to shoot people who are near and dear to my heart. Watching these two fall in love 9 years ago and getting to watch as that love grows more and more every day has been one of the best things. Lauren is an amazing persona and friend and the fact that she found someone who is even sweeter than her is the most I could for for one of my best friends. Their love in apparent in their pictures and I love that this truly captured who they are. Always laughing and twirling hand in hand through life <3
I cannot believe that Ava + Jauwan are getting married this month! I am so excited to capture their wedding day for them, it is going to be amazing and so full of love. Getting to know you guys and hear your love story was so fun.
Austin and Kasey are high school sweethearts, prom king and queen of course, who are doing the long distance thing while they are in college. While they may not get to spend everyday together, the time that they do spend is just that much more special. Their love is fun and their laughter was infectious while we danced, sneezed and Austin licked kasey's forehead in the wildflowers.
I had such a great time and am so glad I was able to capture these for you to help get you through the times that you are apart <3
Chelsea & Jake are such an easy going couple. I loved that they took the drive from Findlay, Ohio to Cincinnati for their engagement pictures, this time next year I will be making the trip to shoot their wedding day! We had a blast exploring Eden Park and trying not to get hit by in coming traffic :P
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!
