They may have met in San Francisco, where they live now, but they both have midwestern roots that will bring them back here for their wedding several months from now. They are the perfect compliment...completely relaxed and at home in each others company. He makes her laugh and smile and the way she looks at him....I feel so lucky to be the one to document your day. The future Mr & Mrs B :)

who they are together
Love is in the air. A friend kept nudging them in the direction of each other and when she finally agreed to meet Mark, that was it. It was clear to both of them...this was something more. And here they are...less than a year away from sealing the deal and making it official. She warned me that they aren't good at pictures...but I knew better. When two people love each other it always comes out in the photos...they might start out nervous and unsure but by the end, who they are together is clear. Congratulations M+A...I am thankful you chose me.

It's a match
This is the day they had planned for...a year in the making. It was the perfect reflection of who they are. She grew up on land, they enjoy the outdoors...this barn style rustic wedding was a match. An outdoor wedding can be tricky in Ohio and even with the threat of storms and a dozen clear umbrellas in my trunk, mother nature smiled on them and not a drop of rain fell from the sky. It was the most beautiful day. They smiled, laughed and celebrated their day with those that are closest to them...it was a pleasure to have a front row seat as they said I do. Congratulations V+P!

the way they look at each other
I don't know how I get so lucky. I truly have the most amazing clients. N+S are the real deal. They are happy and completely in love. I see the way they look at each other, laugh together, hold each others hand as they walk. And I am the lucky girl that gets to witness that love and send it back to them in images. I have been thinking about what it is that I really love about weddings. and couples...it's the connection, the beginning of their story together. There will be years of a building and changing, ebbing and flowing story, but this is the start. They will look back on these are remember who they were together from the start. N+S, you are beautiful people....I am looking forward to your wedding in 2017!

love + two families joined forever
I had the honor of witnessing these two and their beautiful families connected forever because of their love for each other. They are lucky. Lucky to have found such a perfect match in each other and lucky to be surrounded by friends and family that adore them. I watched tears of joy and laughter and such happiness. Thank you for choosing us to document this beautiful day and all the important people who shared it with you.
just the beginning
Do you ever meet someone that is purely and completely caring and full of heart? Now double it and that is what you will find with C+M. Genuinely giving, caring, compassionate people...full of faith. And it was that faith that brought them together. Yes, it rained this day, and we braved the rain drops only briefly, but the drizzle didn't damper their day in the least bit. They get it. They know what this day is about. It is about the two of them spending this life together. Here is your story...but it is just the beginning.

C+M...a perfect match
I knew they/we were a good match when her stories were just as long as mine and her finace teased her about them...and she laughed at the truth of his teasing. I'm a talker...so when I meet another talker...you can't get either of us to stop. It really is so important for me to feel a connection with my clients. I consider them my friends. And if I am going to be by their side on their wedding day, we all need to be sure that we are a good match. There was no question when I met C+M. The most genuinely sweet couple you could imagine. So in love and so kind and caring. I feel so grateful that they found me.

playful & planned, the perfect compliment to one another
It was actually a pretty cold day for October, but you would never know looking at their images. Playful, young and in love. There is probably nothing better than that. M&K compliment each other perfectly. She is the organizer...dreaming of her wedding since she was just a little girl...how everything will be perfectly planned and laid out. He brings the silliness...the playful side to their relationship. Isn't that what a marriage is all about...complimenting each other...growing and sharing this life together. I can't imagine a better combo than this. Their winter 2017 wedding will be planned down to the very last detail and paired perfectly with fun, laughter and smiles...celebrating the start of their lives together. I cannot wait!

A&T Rustic Barn Wedding
Where do I even begin? Is it the gorgeous flowers? The beautiful rustic barn hidden on acres of breathtaking land? Or the dress? Could it be the dress? What makes a wedding perfect, it's not all the meticulously chosen details (although I adore them so), it's the love and the laughter. That's what really made my beautiful friend's day perfection. She is a photographer herself...I was completely grateful (and slightly nervous) that they chose me. So as you look through their images, the ones I have poured over for hours and dozens of times, look for what I see the most. Love (of course love), joy...connection...two incredible people choosing to spend this life together...and all of the joy from those they asked to be by their side. Happy wedding day, my friend. All the work paid off and you experienced what it was really all about...just you two.

T & B tied the knot in this beautiful barn wedding!
It was a perfect August day. Not a rain cloud in sight...yes it was hot, but it's August of course. She was relaxed for her day...she knew, they knew...there was no question that this is what they were meant to do. I watched them laugh together. The moments when one looked at the other as if no one was watching...as if it was a moment for just the two of them. And above all, it was a party...a celebration. Cheers you two! Much happiness, laughter and all the moments in between.

There is something magical about photographing a wedding. You capture the most important moments in the day but I truly love the moments in between. By the end you have made dear friends and archived the start of their lives together.
