Union Terminal and Eden Park Engagement Pictures in Cincinnati | Trent & Sarah

When I met Trent and Sarah for the first time, we talked for over two hours. No joke. We sat in my favorite coffee shop, Triple Moon, with an iced latte in hand and got to know one another so well! I can still see the excitement on Sarah’s face as she dished out all […]

Spring Engagement Pictures at Carriage Hill in Dayton Ohio | Michael & Kacie

The more that I photograph engagement pictures at Carriage Hill Metropark, the more I fall in love with it! Michael and Kacie’s session there on Saturday morning was absolutely beautiful! We picked it because Kacie wanted to honor her grandfather who spent many days fishing with her on the lake in his neighborhood. Carriage Hill […]

Spring Break with the Fam in North Carolina | Travel

  Vacations with the Curtis family usually look a bit different. And that’s why I love ’em! We tend to be spontaneous, enjoy sleeping in a bit and also just being together! There may be a few musts on our agenda that we make sure to hit up, but most times we just explore the […]

Devou and Eden Park Engagement Pictures in Cincinnati | Sam & Lisa

This engagement session was such a fun one for me! I’ve known Sam for a long time, we grew up in 4H together! From our years of showing rabbits in the same class and hanging out at the fair, I never could have dreamed I’d get the honor of photographing his wedding day! I’ve loved […]

Winter Carriage Hill Metropark Engagement Photos | Robert & Christine

  There are some people who you can tell within a second of meeting them that you will be friends. Christine was one of those people for me! After receiving her email inquiring about her wedding day, I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that she was one of “my people”! She just exudes […]

Ben Rector & A Boho Airbnb in Louisville, KY | Adventures

This is a trip Sarah and I have been wanting to take since we first heard Ben Rector like five years ago! Okay, well maybe not this exact trip! But the desire to see him in concert was definitely there! Ben came to Columbus last fall on the leg of his Magic Tour and we […]

Fall Engagement Pictures at Sharon Woods | Charlie & Katie

I could say all the things about this session! Like how perfect it was or how amazing these two were in front of the camera within like ten minutes! They’re such naturals and I’m pretty sure I echoed that saying about a hundred times during their session! But my favorite part about Charlie and Katie […]

Changed Plans & A Calling | My Story Pt. 1

  “How do I even begin this?” I’ve asked myself that question a thousand times over. “My story isn’t that glamorous.” An excuse I’ve made to keep myself from writing this. “Will anyone even read it?” A question that has plagued my mind and fed my procrastination. All of these statements, these questions, they’ve all […]

*Be prepared for a long post!* Thought I should state that at the beginning! Ya know as a public service announcement! 😉 To say that I love this session would be an understatement! Sam pulled out all the stops in planning their dreamy, fall engagement pictures and you’ll see real quick that she knocked it […]
