Columbus, OH Wedding at Strongwater Food and Spirits

“I would rather spend one lifetime with you, than face all of the ages of the world alone.” — The Lord of the Rings

Marriage is all about weathering the trails of life with your best friend so it made perfect sense for Kelsey and Jill to have someone accidentally run into their car on their wedding day. But as I always say, as long as you and your spouse are married at the end of the day, then everything else is just a story to tell.

Kelsey and Jill were no different. After filling out the paperwork, they finished getting ready took some photos and said “I do” knowing that nothing was going to stop them from having a good time!

Indiana State Museum Wedding in Indianapolis, Indiana

“Baby it’s you. You’re the one I love, You’re the one I need, You’re the only one I see.” — Beyonce

These two are the definition of party people! I go to a lot of weddings and have fun at a lot of weddings but this one was a blast from start to finish. Party bus? Check. Shotgunning beers? Check. A dog!? Double check. AAANNNDD they sent me home with an extra slice of cake because it was my birthday :D

Julia and Robert's Vow Renewal Photography Session in Lafayette, Indiana

“There was nowhere to go but everywhere so just keep rolling under the stars.” — Jack Kerouac

So I had this idea to create a Vow Renewal Photography Session for couples who didn’t get the wedding they wanted…or just wanted to do something a little off beat. I got married in high school. We literally spent $50 and I often tell my clients that I live vicariously through their awesome wedding days. So, I understand when people can’t afford big weddings.

Julia and Robert were so excited to help me out seeing if my plan would even actually work, haha. They were completely down to go anywhere I told them. Even when I said that their Ceremony location was going to be on the roof of a parking garage.

Shelby and Doug's Wedding at Rolling Meadows Ranch in Cincinnati, Ohio

“I vow to fiercely love you in all your forms, now and forever. I promise to never forget that this is a once in a lifetime love.” — The Vow

Like most of my clients, Shelby and Doug are laid back people who just wanted to have fun on their wedding day without feeling like they needed to do anything “right.” Sign me up! I love weddings where you feel like you are catching up with an old friend instead of “working.”

Among friends, it’s easy to smile and laugh. Standing in front of a camera can be a little intimidating for even the most seasoned models. That is why I shoot in the style that I do. I would much rather just be a friend, hanging out and laughing with you throughout your day capturing the happiness (and chaos) that comes naturally when being surrounded by family and good friends.

Polen Farms Wedding in Kettering Ohio

“I knew right away that you were it for me. There were no reservations or second thoughts. I saw you and in an instant knew in my bones, my soul had known your soul lifetimes ago.” — Beau Taplin

Dani and Josh’s wedding at Polen Farms was one of my absolute favorites of last year. You all know I love a laid back barn wedding but with the colors of fall and and the styling, it was made all that extra special.
