Wedding Planning

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 […]

Although we’ve only just started our wedding planning process, I feel like I’ve learned a TON. It’s one thing to be on the vendor side of the equation, but being a bride gives me a whole new perspective on my photography business. I’ve been hunting for the perfect photographer since that’s my number one priority […]

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. […]

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 […]

Your wedding day can be hectic. There’s no doubt about that. Coordinating that many people, vendors and guests to come together at certain times and certain locations is a BIG job. That’s where I can help. After you’re done picking out the details for the day and have everything set, I’ll send you a questionnaire […]

Okay, Friends, Let’s be real. I don’t know about you, but I’m always at a total loss when it comes to styling myself. It’s not exactly my forte and I always default to my go-to resources like Pinterest for some inspiration.  If you’re like me, then thinking about not only dressing yourself but also your […]

  As many of us prepared for the holidays and time with family, we also knew that the flood of engagement posts on our Facebook feed would soon be flowing in once the clock struck on Christmas night. To say I was a little excited maybe an itsy bitsy understatement.  I LOVE RINGS!  The first […]

Every single wedding is different and unique, but they’re also very similar. The bride may be stressed, someone may spill something on their dress, the boys are running late (which ALWAYS happens 🙂 ), or no one can find the officiant. Seriously. This is all normal. So, since this is likely your first wedding you’re […]

The top fear my brides tend to have is: What if it rains? What if the weather is bad? What if it’s too cold to take photos outside? Let me put your fears to rest. Yes, it may rain. Yes, you could be on the verge of turning into a popsicle because of the cold. […]
