Kris & Simon | Columbus, Ohio | Wedding Photography

Ohhhhhh emmmmmmm geeeeee my friends. You will die from an overload of too-much-gorgeousness as you scroll down. I warned you. Be prepared.

A big huge wet kiss to my fabulous second shooter and friend Jenny of Jenny Barnes Photography. She’s my go-to girl here in Columbus. 🙂 And yes, Kris is wearing a head piece that is oh-so Carrie Bradshaw.

She had the best girlfriends by her side. I felt like they were my best friends by the time the night was over. (Hi girls!)


Is this not the most gorgeous couple you’ve ever seen?

They chose not to do a First Look. Which made their day even more exciting come ceremony time.

I’ve had the pleasure of photographing many beautiful weddings. I’ve never attended a wedding or photographed a wedding where the crowd audibly GASPED when they saw the bride. It was indescribable.

And then everyone melted. (THIS is why I always have a fabulously talented second shooter with me. More angles!! Great catch JBZ!)


Mr & Mrs!!!! Woot woot!!

On to this unstoppable wedding party. You guys were gorgeous, barrels-of-fun, attentive to your besties, and hands-down-just-awesome. I love you all for that.

You two could not be more in-love with each other. It was a beautiful thing to see and an incredibly special thing to photograph.

Daphne…you hit this one outta the park! You turned The Venue into something magical.

Tiiiiiiiiiime to party!

The dance floor was packed! Alllll night long! Tarah (the world’s best coordinator) supplied the popular sunglasses, glow sticks and general dance floor fun.


Congrats love birds!!!! Your day was outta-this-world-awesome. I can’t thank you enough for asking me to be a small part of it. Lots of love and hugs. xoxo

Caitlynn - Love everything about this post. Stunning couple! Beautiful detail shots. Love the images of the bride alone and then with her bridesmaids. Those are just gorgeous. Plus what a fantastic setting for a reception. Beautiful work.

Molly - Oh, Meggie (and Jenny!), I don’t even… I can’t even… I am so in love with the work you do; your style is perfectly dialed in. Kris + Simon are gorgeous, but you did more than make them look beautiful, you showcased their love in every single image. I always pick a favorite, but I can’t this time. Way to knock it out of the park, my friend. 🙂
