Ethan and Paige’s Intimate Mt. Airy Wedding | Cincinnati Wedding Photographer

ethanpaige0008-2Back in February, I got to spend a fun afternoon with Ethan and Paige and their adorable dog Max getting some awesome engagement photos in the snow.  While we traipsed around Ault Park in our winter boots, I got to hear about how Ethan and Paige had started planning their wedding one way, but then decided to scrap it in favor of something small, intimate, and decidedly them–an intimate outdoor ceremony and a cozy dinner, just the way they dreamed their wedding would be.

To OTR with Love: Jenny and Keith’s Wedding at the Woodward Theater | Cincinnati Wedding Photographer


When I met Jenny for brunch at Sundry & Vice to discuss her wedding, I was completely enamored with her description of the day’s events: photos with the Artworks murals around Over-the-Rhine, service at the 170-year-old First Lutheran on Race Street, a parade through the neighborhood to a reception at the newly-restored Woodward Theater, and even a late night Skyline chili bar!   Continue reading

It was an absolutely perfect sunny day in Lincoln Park, and Tom and Toni were nearly bursting with excitement.  Even before they saw each other, the joy on their faces was obvious.  Toni and Tom are just the happiest, goofiest, and completely head-over-heels couple I’ve had the pleasure to shoot, and I could not have felt more ecstatic to capture their big day.

Amit and Shital’s wedding in the downtown Lexington Hilton was one for the books, folks: a whirlwind of color, emotion, dancing, traditions, and–most of all–love!  As a photographer, it was a blast to capture the myriad details, textures, and loving glances between Shital and Amit, as they pledged their lives together.

Kate and Derik’s Intimate Chinese/Western Wedding in the Forest | Cincinnati Wedding Photographer

As I flip through Kate and Derik’s images, I am awash in the rich, organic colors of their special day: deep, lush greens; saturated, orchid-esque purples; pops of lively summer pinks.  This is exactly how I remember the day: spending it outside in the fresh air after a crisp rain; and then retiring to a cozy, intimate cabin, surrounded by tall trees. Continue reading

Caitie and Jim’s Contemporary Summer Soiree at the Bluestone | Columbus Wedding Photographer


These two happy lovebirds met as freshmen at OU, and tied the knot in an absolutely gorgeous wedding at the Bluestone in Columbus.  Swathed in eucalyptus leaves and fresh flowers, the rosy richness of the Bluestone’s original carved wood details made for a beautiful backdrop to Caitie and Jim’s emotional vows.  After the ceremony, they went for a lovely stroll in Schiller Park, made a quick stop for shots at Plank’s Biergarten, and ended the night on a spectacular note with a magical sparkler send-off into the warm summer air. Continue reading

Doug & Queena’s Luxurious Contemporary Wedding at the W Chicago City Center | Chicago Wedding Photographer

IMG_0688-2 From the moment we shared a round of morning Bloody Marys at their engagement session, I knew–without a doubt–that Doug and Queena’s wedding was going to be a BLAST.  And let me tell you, dear readers, this group definitely puts the ‘party’ in ‘wedding party.’  (Haaa, see what I did there?!  Apparently I can’t write a blog post without working in at least one terrible pun…) Everyone was dressed to the nines for Queena & Doug’s sentimental ceremony at St. Michael in Old Town, followed by a gorgeous cocktail hour, tea ceremony, and reception at the W City Center.  As guests danced late into the night, Doug and Queena showed me a secret wall (not even joking about this, it was SO COOL) to sneak out onto the roof for a midnight picture–a perfect end to a perfect day!   Continue reading
