Kicking off my 2019 wedding season couldn’t have been sweeter. Sarah and Jared planned the perfect day complete with design elements created by Sarah herself who is a graphic designer! Scroll down to check out her insanely cool seating chart that I’m absolutely in love with ahhhhh! This is the first time I’ve photographed a […]

Although my inner nerd hates to admit this—I hadn’t been back to OSU since I was competing in the Science Olympics in the 8th grade (I may have rocked at fossils and forensics 😉 ) but getting to hang out with Anya and Tyler to explore the campus was so fun. My hands may have […]

Megan and Dominic had such a classic and effortless vibe to their engagement session. They were getting married in Napa but wanted their engagement photos at home SO we headed to our local vineyard for some amazing sunset photos that took my breath away. Congrats you two!!

  Out of town brides have no fear! Literally the first time I met Lindsey and David was on their wedding day (gasp!). We got to know each other, chatted throughout the process, planned the entire timeline, and made our shot list all electronically and over the phone. It was a seriously great experience to […]

  When you find a couple like Ramiyah and Tommy your heart does a happy dance. THESE TWO are so in love it just creates this instant good vibe for everyone they’re with. The laughter, emotion, and genuine elation felt on their wedding day was beyond words.  From her stunning dress, his priceless reaction to […]

  Can we take a hot second to prep ourselves before diving into this chic dream of a wedding? Mary Barkocy with Turning Point Events outdid herself planning this day and Emily + Matt were just pure class at every turn. Modern details, an art gallery in the sky, rain that held off literally long […]

Hey Boo, We all know there’s a ton of details that go into the perfect wedding day and I don’t know about you, but I’m a fan of all things food. So, in honor of yummy cakes, cookie-topped cupcakes, and colorful macarons, here are some of my favorite delicious desserts I’ve photographed to date and […]

I met Jenna and Matt a while back and knew they’d be a fun couple from the start. They were so easy to talk to and genuinely excited about their plans for a romantic Cincinnati wedding in October. Also, we’re now officially ring twins and have eerily similar rocks. No complaints here! This girl’s got […]

I don’t know about you, but I’m a simple girl at heart and (at least for my own future wedding) my ideal venue would be a little rustic location surrounded by a sense of calm and fall leaves. Maybe that’s just the romantic in me talking, but I can’t help but love these barn venues. […]

Okay ya’ll, I seriously can’t stop smiling just thinking about Stephanie + Brendan’s wedding. From start to finish we had such a fun time and the amount of love shown by their family and friends filled my heart to the brim.  Their ceremony took place at St. Boniface and from there we hopped on over […]

I actually met Crystal via Instagram of all places. She reached out to me looking to get head shots and images for her new website launch in March (you go, girl!). Of course, I jumped at the opportunity to work with such a sweet soul! We set up shop at Studio 821 in Newport, KY […]

I have a lot of brides that are on the fence about a first look because they’re really wanting that magical moment of their groom seeing them for the first time walking down the aisle, but also want an opportunity to take the majority of their pictures before the ceremony and be able to go […]

This post is a short and sweet one. Just soak up all the pretty!  I don’t know what it is about monochromatic hues, but I’m head-over-heels for these combos. Whether it’s a chic Southern wedding or a black-tie ceremony, I’ve always been a fan of the “having each bridesmaid wear a different dress” concept because it […]

Making big girl purchases for my business always makes me sweat. Seriously, random warm spells are normal in my book. At the end of 2016 I learned about this new online system called HoneyBook. I’d seen a lot of bloggers and wedding photographers I followed used it and singing its praises. Currently, I had been […]

I’ve always been guilty of totally overloading my phone with pictures of my two dogs, a hilarious thing I saw that day or screenshots of funny memes, but now, I’ve been trying to up my Instagram game and have changed my approach. While funny memes make MY day, it may not make yours when scrolling […]

Getting ready photos are sometimes the most quirky and fun photos to take besides the ones with the entire bridal party later in the day. Why? Because this is the time when the bride is with her friends, the groom is with his friends and they’re RELAXED. Usually, there’s some mimosas, joking around and jumping […]
