Gina and Matt are the cutest! We truly had so much fun running around German Village at their engagement session. They’re Columbus foodies like Nick and I! And that bike!? So fun. And very them. Loved getting to know them both even better – makes me even more excited for their May 2015 High Line Car House wedding!! Thanks so much for choosing me to document these times in your life — truly so honored!!

Ashley and John had such a beautiful, simple Jorgensen Farms wedding. This is one of my absolute favorite Columbus venues, such an amazing space!

These two work at the same school in Upper Arlington – and Ashley laid her eyes on John and just had to have him! I loved hearing how they met and fell in love. They are so sweet and have so much in common — These are just genuinely wonderful people!

Their day had perfect weather and truly went off without a hitch. And their heartfelt vows didn’t leave a dry eye in the house. Thank you both for choosing me to document your day! It was such a pleasure!

This is Lindsey and Danny at 7am…. Don’t they look amazing!? I try to shoot sessions at Sunrise or Sunset so we can get that glowy light, and I think we definitely achieved that with their engagement! So beautiful!

Sunny Meadows Flower Farm was SO sweet to let us use their property to do this session. I was so excited. There’s not too many locations prettier than a flower farm!

Lindsey and Danny are getting married next July at Via Vecchia — CANNOT WAIT. We had tons of fun. These two are so easy to connect with and photograph. Their love for each other is so apparent! Oh, and they have two puppies too, so you know it was love at first sight for me too!

Congrats on your engagement! So looking forward to the wedding!

I am having a really hard time believing that we have been married one entire year! Its crazy, the older we get the faster time truly does fly.

Nick and I are so lucky in this life we have. Together almost 8 years and married 1, and I’ve gotta say — life is pretty good. This year we’ve taken a few trips, worked a lot, loved a lot more, made memories with friends, spent time with family, and been truly happy. I feel wonderfully content in our life. It’s comfortable, easy, safe, fun, adventurous, and completely and plainly normal at times. If I am going to binge watch Netflix or take a trip across the world, there is no one else I’d rather do it with. Pretty remarkable in life to find someone who just fits in your plans, loves and understands you, has the same dreams and goals — it gives me this sense of ease in our life. Like everything will work out the way it is supposed to.

I love you Nick! I love our exciting times, and I love our simple times. I love you for your freckles, your heart, your willingness to try out all my crazy ideas in life, your work ethic, how you laugh at me (and everyone else) constantly, your passion for motorcycles, that you’re my puppy parenting partner, that you support all my career goals, and that you make me feel like anything in life is possible. It’s just gonna get better and better. Happy first anniversary! Can’t wait to celebrate in California next month!
