What a year! Putting together this blog post is always eye opening because it forces me to look back on all that I was able to create. I absolutely love this craft I get to be apart of. Walking alongside couples as they journey toward and through their wedding day is something that I never […]
What a way to close out my 2019 wedding season! Friday was the definition of a fall day! The temperature, the color palette and even the thick clouds that made it a little extra overcast! It was beautiful! Kevin and Paige officially became husband and wife! Surrounded by so many family and friends, they said […]
The honor of photographing the wedding of a friend of a past couple is one I don’t take lightly! I got to meet Jessie when she was a bridesmaid in Joel and Anna’s wedding last spring! She was the absolute sweetest to work with throughout the entire day and at the reception she stole me […]
If fall weddings continue to be like the past two, I may be won over from my summer obsession! Just maybe! Steven and Taylor’s wedding day at Polen Farm in Dayton, Ohio was a beauty! From the classic color palette to the actual fall temperatures we experienced, there was no shortage of things to make […]

The anticipation for Troy and Megan’s wedding at the Hughes Center in Hamilton, Ohio was real! At least since their UP themed engagement session at Ault Park last year! I can remember chatting with Megan for the first time at one of my favorite coffee stops and we clicked instantly! We ended up spending […]
It’s no secret that I’ve been awaiting this wedding since their engagement session at Caesar Creek in the fall! You should remember Sam from her incredible attention to detail that resulted in a classic truck and a canoe being included in their photos! Since she set the bar so high with their engagement session, I […]
This wedding was one filled with family and legacy. And as you scroll through the details and the rest of the post, you’ll see what I mean! Kacie wore Michael’s grandma’s pearls, she carried a handkerchief that had been passed down through his family and her bouquet was adorned with a charm commemorating the family […]
From the start, Katie told me that the point of their day was not only to celebrate the marriage of her and Charlie, but to honor all those who have walked alongside them throughout their relationship. She told me all about the unique timeline she had in mind, how there’d be an intimate ceremony […]
