Angie and Josh | Wedding

I so enjoyed documenting this sweet couples wedding.  I have started asking my couples questions after their wedding day.  Reading their questions has been one of my favorite things, and I feel like they can tell the story better than I can!  Enjoy this beautiful wedding story filled with so much love, tears, laughter and sweetness.

“Moment #1 that stands out to me is when the doors to the church opened and I saw angie for the first time.”

I remember feeling so overcome with happiness that I couldn’t stop crying for the majority of my walk down the aisle, and the second I got close enough to Josh that I could relax and let out a laugh/smile

Something from your wedding day you never want to forget: “sitting together on the alter, smiling and giggling and indescribably happy “

“I think the way I felt the entire day. Absolutely no stress, pure happiness throughout the day. Also, the way I felt towards Angie during the day of the wedding is a feeling I would like to hold on to and replicate each and everyday throughout our marriage.”

“I remember kissing each other at the end of our first dance, we had so much fun twirling around in front of all our loved ones.”

Were there any laugh out loud moments?  “The second we heard our groomsman grab the microphone and belt out a ballad while the rest of his groomsmen posed as his body guards.”

Jennifer and TJ Wedding Story

A beautiful woman with an amazing smile, and a strong, quiet man invited us to be a part of their amazing wedding day.  It was an honor.  It was an honor to spend the morning with Jenni and her closest ladies at the salon, to watch as they saw each other for the first time on their wedding day, to watch them say their their vows, to listen to the speeches that their friends and family gave, to watch them dance and laugh and have fun.  That’s our job, we get to be there for these beautiful days and amazing moments.

Becca and Patrick | Cincinnati Wedding Photography

Spring was just beginning to give us a little tease on the day that Becca and Pat got married.  The trees held little green buds at the edge of their fingertips and it was warm enough were you were happy in a light sweater, sun shone and wind blew.  It was the kind of day where you wake up ready to go and accept life’s invitation to just enjoy.  On this day I’m sure these two woke up feeling that way.  I imagine them just opening their eyes, looking out the window and knowing that it was going to be a good day, a day for first looks and giggles, hands held and glances stolen.  It was a day for tears and belly laughs, for dancing and singing and throwing hands in the air.  It was all these things and so much more.  As one of the first couples of the year, these two certainly started things off with a bang.  I couldn’t be more happy for these beautiful souls. Congratulations you two!

Amanda and Christian | Cincinnati Wedding Photography

I got an email from Christian a few month ago, read it, and instantly hoped they would hire me to document their wedding.

I actually had met Amanda a few years ago at a random network-y type event and would randomly see updates about her life through social media.  I knew she was a sweet and genuine person with a good work ethic and beautiful voice.  So that was already one reason I hoped I would get to document their big day.

The other reason is that they were getting married during a regular Sunday church service at the church where Amanda was a member and sung many weeks of the year.  I loved the idea of something different and meaningful.  There was a whole different vibe to the day, from getting there when it was still dark for getting ready photos, to seeing people and wondering if they knew the bride and groom or if they walked in to church and had a fun surprise, to the reception after where everyone who attended church that morning was invited, whether they knew the bride and groom or not.  They had such a sweet day, filled with beautiful moments and lots of love.  I was blessed to be able to join them and their church as they witnessed these two become husband and wife.

Two Thousand Sixteen

This annual practice of looking at all my images has become something that I really look forward to.  Each year I find myself refining my vision and what it is that I love in a photograph.  This year I can’t stop thinking about the phrase “to be human”.   I want my photographs to convey that feeling, to show in just a small way the way it feels to be a human living and breathing on this big, beautiful, hard, amazing planet.

Angela and Braddock | Cincinnati Wedding Photography

Pulling into Withrow Nature Preserve, my photographers heart did a little skip and a dance.  I should have known though, after my engagement session with these two where we meandered through the woods at Alms Park.  It seems the woods and nature keep wanting to make their appearance when I photograph these two.  They got married with a setting sun on one side, and on the other family and friends looking on with warm hearts and tears in their eyes.

Nancy and Brian | Cincinnati Wedding Photography

I did not know that there was a beautiful vineyard just miles from my house until this beautiful wedding.  I also did not know how sweet and in love and beautiful Nancy and Brian were before I photographed their wedding.  But now, I not only know about an this incredible vineyard, but more importantly, I was able to get to know two beautiful souls.  These two humans were surrounded by an amazing family and friends all day.  Nancy’s sister sang an amazing song to the two of them, there was laughing under the stars, the were sweet kisses, lots of belly laughs, and some pretty sweet dance moves.  What a lovely day it was.
