Jamie + Paul + Evan + Lily | Columbus Ohio Family Portrait Photography | Columbus Ohio Portrait Photographer

My heart. These are two of just the sweeeeeeeetest kids! We met them shortly after moving into our neighborhood and I was so excited when Jamie asked for a family portrait session. Enjoy all of these smiles!!

This Lily just melts me. EVERY time I see her, she points at me and says “Leo’s mommy.” In the sweeeeeetest little voice!

One of my faves! 

Evan and those baby blues!! <3 

I just loved spending the evening with your sweet family. Thank you for choosing me to document this special time in your lives. xoxoxo

Adam + Shiloh | Columbus Ohio Wedding Photography | The Shepard Place

This day could NOT have been better!! The venue, the details, the weather, the sunset, this couple!! The Shepard Place is a gorgeous venue to host your dream wedding. We loved being there and documenting this fantastic day. Enjoy my faves!

Shiloh, this DRESSSSS!!! Stunning. 

I love this one so so much. Shiloh requested an image of Adam seeing her for the first time. Not only did we get that, but we got her whole little family seeing her. Mission accomplished!!

Mr & Mrs!!! Woot woot!!

Got him!

The sunset and sky were in incredible!! So we snuck outside for a few more portraits of just the two of them.

Shiloh!!! That one on the right!!! GAHHHH!!!!

I’m sure I said something hilarious here. 😉 

Congrats on your FANTASTIC day Adam & Shiloh!! We were honored to be a part of it. xoxox

ADAM + SHILOH

Casstown, Ohio

July 22, 2018

FROM ADAM ::

Describe your wedding day in 5 words :: Beautiful, Priceless, Love, Overwhelming, Hotttt

Funniest moment :: My new wife chasing me with cake, after I smeared it on her face, lol.

Emotional memory :: Exchanging vows of love and personal commitment with my best friend.

Advice for future Brides & Grooms :: Take everyone’s opinion into consideration… but ultimately it’s your day, your choice. They need to respect that.

Would you do anything differently :: Take more time for yourself.

FROM SHILOH ::

Describe your wedding day using 5 words :: Hot, emotional, amazing, priceless, successful.

Funniest memory :: For me there are two moments that I can recall laughing hard at: The first being during pictures and Megan saying to look at your neighbor, I clearly was not catching on to look at my new husband and looked the other direction, eventually I caught on. The second was after cutting the cake and smearing the cake in his face, which I shall add I had to chase him in order to achieve this.

Most emotional memory :: Walking down the aisle with my father and step-father on the way to my husband.

Advice for future Brides & Grooms :: Have patience during the planning process and it take it all in because your big day will fly by and be over before you know it. The most important thing to remember is you get to marry your best friend at the end of the day.

Do anything differently :: Eat, Eat, Eat. As a new couple you won’t have time to actually sit down and eat unless you make time for it, so make sure that you eat before the ceremony.

SONGS ::

First Dance :: Promise to love her by Blane Howard

Father Daughter Dance :: Isn’t She Lovely by Stevie Wonder

Mother Son Dance :: A Song for Mama by Boyz II Men

Danser Dolls | Ohio State Fair | Columbus Ohio Senior Photography

I just adore these girls! And this is one of my very favorite shoots that we do all year. The Ohio State Fair shoot is an invite-only photo shoot for the girls on my Danser Doll team that have posted their images, spread the word and have sent at least one referral to me. It’s my way of saying “Thank-you-so-much-I-adore-you-and-you-are-the-best!” This is the third year we’ve made the trip and I already have ideas for next year. Enjoy a few of my faves!

August 22, 2017 - 8:13 pm
